On the way to work I munched on 1/4 cup of Udi's Granola, that I measured out into a snack bag. Yesterday I just received a package in the mail with a bunch of different flavors of Udi's Granola, and today I had the Cranberry. This actually filled me up pretty well. Until I had a sample from my grocery store a week ago, I had never heard of Udi's. Apparently it is also a restaurant and bakery in Denver, Colorado. The ingredients in the Cranberry are: Thick-Cut Rolled Oats, Wildflower Honey, Dried Cranberries, Canola Oil, and Walnuts. I've never made homemade granola, but my guess is that this is much closer to tasting homemade than other granola on the market. Also included in my package was a recipe for Udi's Granola Chocolate Chip Cookies, which I may try to make in the next couple of days.
At work I ate the berries that I was going to eat with my granola, but instead ate in the car. Overall this wasn't a big enough breakfast (oat bar only had 100 calories, granola 120 calories, 1 cup of berries about 50 calories). Normally my breakfast is about 350 calories. So I think my smaller than usually breakfast is the reason I am still hungry while I type this.
I was in meetings all morning and ate lunch at 12:40. I packed hummus, tomato, and romaine lettuce on a Ezekiel english muffin. I had too much lettuce and tomato so I ate the extra on the side with a little salt.
While eating my sandwich I was reading the post on Jenn's blog and saw her Starbucks trip and instantly craved it, so about 10 minutes after my sandwich was done and I made sure I was still hungry I walked to Starbucks and got the Grande Mocha Light Frap.
Around 4:15pm I started getting hungry so I ate the three Back to Nature Classic Creme cookies that were tucked away in my desk drawer. These tasted so good, but didn't do much to curb my hunger.
I got home about 6:20pm and while my husband and I got dinner ready I snacked on a handful of baked tostitos.
After dinner and my dessert I went to my hour Pilates class, and I could really feel my abs working hard. Pilates ended at 9pm and then I had to stop and pick up a card for my brother in law's graduation from his Nursing Program. Steve and I are attending a lunch tomorrow at his University. I am just sneaking out of work from 11am - 1pm. Hopefully they have something healthy and vegetarian. When I finally got home around 9:40pm, I started to get hungry again, so I had a bowl of grapes.
Wow that was a lot of pictures for one day!! Now it is way past my bed time!
