This was so good. Thinking about it makes me want this for breakfast tomorrow, but I already packed something else.
Around 11am I was so tired at my desk, I blame it on the Olympics! So I went to Starbucks for a Skinny Carmel Latte. This perked me up. I was good to go hungerwise based on the skim milk in the Latte, but I had some grapes because I was planning a late lunch and a 1pm trip to the gym.
At the gym I did 30 minutes on the stair climber. My heart rate monitor said that I burned 300 calories. My heart rate was at 160 bpm almost the whole time, which is intense for me. When I got back at 2pm I was ready for lunch. I was soooo excited because I packed a new Kashi product that I picked up on Monday. It is a frozen pocket bread sandwich, the bread was so good. I had mine in the fridge all day instead of the freezer, so I think mine was softer than if kept in the freezer until microwaving. The flavor of it was great. It states on the box that it is Vegan.
This is just a very small paper plate, so don't think this is a huge pocket, but it is very filling.
I also had a salad on the side. It was romaine lettuce, green beans, and mushrooms, with a little Kraft Light Done Right Balsamic salad dressing.
My lunch filled me up well, until around 6pm and I was suddenly starved. I should have packed an afternoon snack for sure!
For dinner I had a Garden Burger brand patty the Chik’n Grill one. I love this patty so much! I ate it on a whole wheat english muffin with some mustard and tomato. I had the rest of the tomato on the side, with some Kashi crackers and cubed soy cheese. I had more crackers than showed on this plate, because I was eating them as my muffin toasted. I ate too fast to really enjoy this (need to work on this). I am ALWAYS rushing and feel like I don't have time to eat my food slowly and really enjoy it.
After dinner I was still hungry, because I let myself get too hungry and then ate too fast. I had a pack of Quaker Mini Delights and some Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk (love this).
I should do a side by side taste taste of 8th Continent vs Silk light chocolate soy milk sometime. Which do you prefer?
I baked my husband Dark Chocolate Banana Brownies, I didn't try one yet, but I may post about those tomorrow. It is 11pm and I need to get ready for bed, so until tomorrow....
