Hi friends! How is December treating you?
Have you checked out my giveaway for a package of The Simply Bar’s most popular flavours and two bags of their Simply Protein Chips? It’s still on until this coming Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012 midnight!
I haven’t had the chance to link up with Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday in a while, but I’m back.
Breakfast: (sorry – no picture) English muffin with butter and smoked Gouda, hard-boiled egg, coffee with 1% milk (I decided it’s time to return to 1%, with the amounts of coffee I’m drinking lately – blame it on essays and exams)
Lunch: leftover mix – roasted tomato soup with butternut squash gnocchi (both found in the freezer and tossed together) shared with the little Mr.
Snack: spicy hummus + carrots, nonfat yogurt and the fantastic homemade granola Candice made and sent me in my latest Foodie Penpals package.
PM treat: hot chocolate (also from my Foodie Penpal package)
Dinner: Umm, this is random, but avocado and smoked Gouda sandwich on homemade spelt bread, cucumber, hardboiled egg, and french fries…
I can’t believe I had a bread success with this recipe. Perfectly dense, German-style bread (although a little bland).
Glasses of water so far: 3 (FAIL!) – I need a constant reminder to hydrate myself. Strangely, I keep offering my son his sippy cup with water, so why not for myself? It’s a mystery. Please let me know, if you have any H2O tips.
I’m usually fine in the summer, but now that it’s cold outside, I just don’t feel like it. Maybe a nice hot herbal tea instead of plain old tap water? This reminds me of the fantastic Mighty Leaf teas from the coffee shop I used to work at a few years ago – I might have to invest in one of those again (they are pricey!). Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical = soooo fruity and delicious and green tea has all the goodness of anitoxidants and helping weight loss, plus a little caffeine to boost.
Anyways, I digress. If you’re interested in more What I Ate Wednesday posts, make sure to check out Peas & Crayons.
I’m off to
decorate the apartment and listen to Christmas songs study for an upcoming exam.
