Breakfast was a parfait, using Udi's Granola, this granola really added a nice crunch to my parfait. I love this breakfast, because it really holds my hunger well.
When I got home I decided to make the Scones from Hungry Girl's cookbook. They looked quick and a great breakfast. Although to this recipe I added 1 Tablespoon of sliced almonds and 2 tablespoons of flax meal. Which takes us to Friday....
FRIDAYI was hungry when I woke up so I ate a plain Scone, then at about 8:30 at work I ate another Scone with Justin's Nut Butter Almond Butter (LOVE THIS) and Jam. I was fueled until lunch.
I started getting hungry as I was walking to a noon Spin Class, which was horrible because I started losing energy while spinning. I did 40 minutes and burned 350 calories (based on my heart rate monitor). When I got back to the office I was too ready for lunch. I had a vegetarian sloppy joe and some carrots with homemade hummus. My plate looks like a face on a pumpkin. This was so good, but it took 20 minutes to really know that I was full because I was so starved when I started lunch. So waiting is key!
Around 3:30 my husband walked over to my building with a latte from Dunkin Donuts. This was a great snack to hold me until dinner. Here is my coffee with a view out of my office window.
For dinner we had a HUGE zucchini from Steve's Uncle that we needed to use, so I decided that we would try Kath's Summer Squash Gratin. Here is the finished product:
We also made some bruschetta and grilled a sweet potato. While the food was cooking I snacked on a sliced raw kohlrabi and tomato. Oh and a glass of wine:)
This was such a wonderful summer dinner and we still have half of the Gratin leftover. Here is my plate:
Well I have a busy Saturday. Have a wonderful day!
