I have arrived at my destination – and I have Internet access! At least for tonight…I’m not sure if I’ll have it all weekend, but here are today’s eats!
I woke up feeling not-so-hot. I didn’t get much sleep this week, and it finally started to catch up with me. As a result, I wasn’t in the mood for a big bowl of oats. Instead, I made myself a small bowl of cereal, with 1/2 cup of TJ’s High Fiber O’s and 1 cup of Nature’s Path Puffs.
I used 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk and added the last of my Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter to provide a little more substance.
I also had some Coffee Cocoa to try to wake myself up – though caffeine unfortunately has little effect on me. I’m one of those people that could drink three gallons of coffee (ok, that might be a slight exaggeration) and then go take a nap. In fact, I can pretty much take a nap anytime, anywhere!
Breakfast held me over until about 10:00 a.m. I snacked on the last of my juicy red pears – I’m going to need to get more of these!
We actually had another office meeting with lunch (sorry, no photo!). I had some salad with a drizzle of ranch dressing, 1 small diced red potato, 1/2 of a Granny Smith apple and 1/2 of a veggie sandwich. The sandwich was actually really good – it had zucchini, red pepper, spinach and mushroom on a small roll. I’m not sure where it was catered from, but it was by far the healthiest free meal we’ve had so far this summer.
I was really cold in the office for some reason, so at about 3:30 p.m. I decided to grab myself a mocha from Hannah’s Bretzel. It was actually organic, which I was excited about!
I asked for it with skim milk. Look at the foamy top – YUM! It warmed me right up.
Of course, I couldn’t go to Hannah’s Bretzel and NOT get a whole grain bretzel!! I knew I didn’t want to spend money on a meal at the airport either, so I picked one up to eat as part of my dinner.
Gosh. I can’t get over how good these are. I could eat one for every meal of every day without anything else and be one very happy camper. Of course my body wouldn’t be as pleased as my taste buds if I did that 😉 But seriously, they taste so doughy and fresh, no matter how long they’ve been out of the oven.
To top off my dinner-on-the-go, I tried a new Clif bar: the blueberry crisp flavor.
Believe it or not, even though I swear by Clif ZBaRs, I’ve never had a full-fledged Clif bar before. I was actually very impressed – it was plenty big and tasted like a blueberry treat. It was a little sweeter than I might have liked, but perhaps it was just this flavor. So that begs the question…
What is your favorite Clif bar flavor?
It’s time for me to hit the hay – and hopefully sleep in a little tomorrow morning I need to rest up for the busy weekend ahead! Hopefully I will have continuous Internet access – if not, I will be back on Sunday!
