When I walked into Reed's school this morning, the whole place smelled like cinnamon rolls, which were baking in the kitchen for the kids' morning snack. Very weak moment right there. I really missed bread/ bagels today. I assume that is because I usually eat a lot of bread and bagels and I love them so.
I do love that as I plan and eat my meals so deliberately, I feel like I'm being really kind and good to myself.
Breakfast, 5:30 am: 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of oatmeal with a little maple syrup. 1 cup coffee with a little agave.
On the way to work, 6:45 am, I sipped on a smoothie: orange/ carrot/ spinach/ blueberry/ banana.
Snack, 9:30: almonds and pear.
Lunch: Quinoa Salad, clementine.
After school: Rice cakes with almond butter, banana slices and agave and green tea.
Dinner: Spinach salad with lemon and olive oil and two Black Bean Burgers.
Snack: popcorn with some salt.
The Black Bean Burgers were pretty good; I just made up a recipe. I combined 1 can of organic black beans, 1 egg, 1 sweet potato (cubed and boiled), 3/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/2 a diced white onion, some cumin, chili powder and salt and mashed it all up.
I just finished my 4th bottle of water, so 96 ounces. That's not quite a gallon but it felt like all I could do today.
I can't tell how I'm feeling in terms of the CFC because I'm kind of sick with a sore throat. How are you guys feeling today?
