It's beginning to look a lot like Easter??

I don't remember many weeks before Easter with snow on the ground in Pittsburgh, oh well :)

I actually took pictures of all my eats from yesterday. I want to get in the habit of this, because I am afraid of consuming too much while being at home all day and being stressed about not having a job.

I made stove top oats for the first time in months. I had 1/4 cup oat bran, 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 banana, 1/2 skim milk, 1/2 cup water, and pinch of salt. After the oats were done, I added cherries (which were frozen but warmed in the microwave), unsweetened coconut, flax meal, and a little chocolate protein powder.

For lunch, I had a Flat Out Wrap with my leftover Trader Joe's Indian Food and some soy cheese and lettuce. I also had 8 almonds while standing at the pantry, so no picture.

With lunch I had a Chocolate Coconut Kashi Bar. Love these!

My afternoon snack was a Skinny Carmel Latte with an extra shot of espresso and a Kashi Pumpkin Pie bar. I have given up Starbucks since I was laid off, but I found a Starbucks card in my wallet with $3.50 on it....score :)

For dinner I made a stir fry with baked tofu, cauliflower, broccoli, kale and mushrooms. I actually pre-made the baked tofu the night before. I steamed all the veggies for a few minutes and they drained the water and added the baked tofu, low sodium soy sauce, sesame seeds, and Newman's Own light ginger dressing.

I had a really early dinner (like 5pm) so at 9pm, I had a Vitamuffin with Trader Joe's Almond butter and some fat free whipped cream. Sorry about the picture, I started to eat it before I remembered to grab my camera.

I am going to make the most of my day.

You've got to love the weeks where it's 70 degrees one day and 30 with snow a few days later! Seriously, what's up with that?!

I'm jealous of your food. The cherry oatmeal looks great and I have some frozen cherries to use up, so my breakfast might see them tomorrow! :)

Where is spring? This is crazy!
Your oats do look lovely. I never add berries like that, but it looks yummy.

I love finding random gift cards, especially for Starbucks!

That dessert looks really amazing!

You know I still haven't had a VitaMuffin (they're tough to find!). Your dessert looks heavenly!

Don't you just love when you find money or gift cards you didn't even remember you had? :-) I usually don't find much, but it makes me happy to find it!

I wish not concur on it. I think warm-hearted post. Particularly the appellation attracted me to read the unscathed story.
