I always start my day with lots of filtered water….Most of my issues from before my food journey were attributed to being dehydrated (teacher problems!), so I’m very sensitive to always drink plenty of filtered water before I eat anything. I love my glass Camelbak!
Next, I had this Mango Banana Smoothie. It made two servings, so I shared with Andrew since he was off work today. I probably could have had the rest, though, because I LOVE this smoothie. Practicing what I preach with this whole “sharing” thing!
I ate an early lunch (probably because I shared:) ) and had two helpings of this Asian Buckwheat Salad. It’s just so good, I have a hard time with self control!
The best thing about this salad (I guess besides its flavor) is that it keeps in the fridge for days. I can make this and have lunch for 4 or 5 days. To me, that’s well worth spending the time in the kitchen. If you work outside the home, you could go ahead and put this in 4 containers in the fridge to make lunches for the week extremely simple!
I usually have a sweet tooth several times a day, so I munched on this “test” for Strawberry Cheesecake Bars. I LOVED them, but they weren’t quite what I was trying to make, so that recipe is still pending.
Later in the afternoon, I snacked on some gluten free crackers and soft goat cheese. This held me over until dinner…I am always excited about Mexican Night, so I usually need to save lots of room!
I had a major fail tonight at dinner. I bought the wrong kind of cornmeal for my corn tortillas (what is wrong with my brain?!) so I made a taco salad instead using a fun kitchen tool 🙂 I’m actually glad I made the mistake because this actually became my new favorite salad. No dressing required! (Recipe coming soon!)
I needed (cough* cough*) one more sweet treat after dinner, and decided for these No-Bake Strawberry Tarts with Chocolate Chip Whipped Cream (because they are in my freezer with easy access!).
What are you eating on today?? Those affected by the ice/snow, what are your meals like today?
