Back with a full day of eats!

While I decided on breakfast I snacked on some Granola. I really love Cascadian Farm's dark chocolate almond. I decided to have a pb&j, one half just pb co's dark chocolate dreams and half of a banana, the other side dark chocolate dreams and jam.

My breakfast kept me full until 11am, and then I had a mini luna bar that has been sitting in my pantry. I needed something to whole me during my lunch time workout, so I ate it. I did about 25 minutes of cardio at the gym.

For lunch I ate 1/3 cup couscous mixed with 1/2 cup water. I cooked the water in the microwave for 2 minutes and then added the couscous and covered for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl I microwaved 1/3 cup morningstar crumbles, 1/3 cup peas, 1/8 cup chick peas, and 1 artichoke heart from a can I opened last week. After the couscous had absorbed all the water, I added the other goodies and microwaved for 30 seconds. I added a little salt and pepper. This would be good with a drizzle of EVOO or balsamic vinegar.

An hour after lunch I was still hungry, so I ate by Oikos yogurt. I really love the blueberry flavor and have one a day usually.

Even though most days my greek yogurt keeps me full for at least a few hours. I was still really hungry, so I went and got a skim latte with an extra shot.

When I got home I munched on one serving of Sweet Crisps by Genisoy. I like Genisoy's soy crisps, and they recently came out with these sweet ones. Then have less protein than the soy crisps.
Dinner was a side salad and pizza. I added some almonds and dried cherries to my salad, I loved the crunch of the almonds and the chew of the cherries. The flavors taste so good together too.

The pizza is made with soy meat and cheese and I talk about all the great ingredients we use in this post.

After dinner we decided to go to the gyms to do weights, because we never have time at lunch. We did a good leg workout and bench press exercises.
Well off to start my Saturday. I have a bridal shower for a friend I have had for 21 years. Then tonight I am doing out to dinner with friends. So I'm not sure that I will be able to have a lunch or dinner picture. I'll try!
