Short & Sweet (Day 4 of 28)

It's been an interesting day with the Portland Snowmageddon in full force.  Pity the weather makes such a mess of things...the snow is sure purdy!  Confession:  I wish I could post pictures of myself frolicking in the winter wonderland, you know, to document this momentous weather.  However, my "selfie" ability is lacking in a major way.  I took some pics of me in the snow but the result was weird-looking photos where it appeared I had snow coming out of my nose.  Not flattering.  In the slightest.

Here's a recap of my meals today.  I find that during the week I keep things pretty simple.  Usually I repeat the previous night's dinner as my lunch the following day.  Easy to just make a second helping, throw it in a tupperware and bam!  Lunch is ready.

Breakfast: Oat/bran flakes with almond milk and pomegranate seeds.

Mid-morning Snack:  Banana

Lunch: Hummus/kale/veggie wrap, graham cracker (honey version instead of sugar) with peanut butter for dessert.

Afternoon Snack: Quinoa/black bean chips

Dinner: Black bean soup (TJ's), chopped cooked sweet potato, avocado, tomatoes, squeeze of lime, sliced toasted corn tortilla.  Raspberry sorbet for dessert.

Small victory:  Another caffeine-free day!

Uh-oh:  Need to be drinking more water.  I do pretty well when I'm at work and have my big water cup staring me in the face.  But when I'm not at work, I kinda forget to drink water!

  1. Haha, how are you doing with Snowlandia? It just started snowing again at my house -- I think we're sitting at 5-6 inches already. I promise this isn't normal! I walked (well, it was really more of a clomp than a walk) to the Albertson's about a mile from my house this morning and bought all the things to make a nice big pot of pumpkin chili. I've got the beans soaking on the counter right now, and I'll let it simmer in the slow cooker all night. I wish I'd thought ahead so I'd already have a nice big bowl ready for after I'm done stomping about out there!

    The snow thing has kind of put a weird crimp on my dining plans. Breakfast this morning was a Strawberry-Kiwi-Mango fruit cup from 7-11, along with an apple and some peanut butter. Lunch was totally unhealthy, as I stopped by Burgerville on my walk to the grocery store -- Spicy Anasazi Bean Burger, dry, no cheese, add pickles and onions -- but you can get the apple slices instead of the french fries, which is super nice. I was thinking dinner tonight would be baked tofu tossed in spicy peanut sauce, and a salad, but the hubster might be making lentils and rice instead. Since we're both going a little stir-crazy from the weather, we both want to cook!
