As the week goes by…

I feel better and better.  Again, thanks for helping me feel better!!!

Anyhow, quick recap of the day cause I have some stuff I need to get done tonight for my trip home tomorrow!  I’m leaving directly after I finish up at work and hope to have a nice dinner at home with the parents…and maybe the brothers?  Who knows.  And because I’ll be at home, I might not be able to blog…we shall see.  If not, I promise a full recap on Sunday!
Breakfast started off with a bit of a twist from my normal fruit and yogurt…I’m out of fresh berries so I had to resort to frozen ones, and tossed in some frozen mango too.  I topped it off w/ some of my homemade granola and a piece of some pumpkin cranberry bread I made the other night.  I like the pumpkin bread I made cause it doesn’t have that overpowering pumpkin taste..maybe it’s because i didn’t use pumpkin pie spice and just cinnamon and ginger…it’s good though and not too sweet!

This didn’t last me as long as I thought it would so I had a lovely zbar…
By the time lunch came around I was starving and dug into my black bean/tomato/laughing cow cheese wrap…I had a salad on the side w/ a fuji apple.  so good!

For some reason it didnt’ last me too long…which i thought it would w/ the beans, but it didn’t.  so i had my fav snack: pb and banana!

I got home and was hungry AGAIN (Geez!!) so I had some peanuts and cashews w/ some dried bluberries…and had some honeydew on the side (sorry, forgot the pictures!).
I spent the rest of the evening cleaning and starting to pack up some stuff to start taking home…by the time my hunger came back it wasn’t raging and i simply had no idea what i wanted…i stared at the outside of my fridge forever.  hahaha…i decided on this sad plate of whatever-ness…
I had a few more kashi’s afterwards…8 maybe?
But, look what fairy came to visit me today:
Thank you Robyn from Gnu Bars for my nice sample pack!  I can’t wait to try my first one tomorrow!!!!
K, off to finish all the stuff I gotta do.  Ciao!

  5. Pearl says:

    oh my gosh! really? WOW! i’d LOVE to meet up, really! i’m so excited! hahahaha :)

    i think what’s so cool is that we get to meet up with people who we have never met, but know so much about – through their words and their ability to share with us, y’know?

    anyways, i hope you have a great thanksgiving and i definitely want to meet up when you’re free!

    if you’d want, we can start chatting on AIM and such (do you have that?) you can e-mail me your screen name and i’ll add you!

    pearl :)

    P.S. – cute pictures! gnu bars are SO good – i first tried the cranberry, chocolate, and oatmeal raisin last year or so (i got them at whole foods… they were the only available flavors back then) and thought they were great! i really loved the chocolate (but then again, who doesn’t like chocolate?) and also the cranberry ones… i have yet to try the other flavors (i didn’t even know they came out with new ones), and i’m really tempted! thanks for sharing :0

  27. Just Me says:

    Okay so you are right that banana/pb combo does look mighty gross, but it also looks so delicious, I cant wait to do my grocery shopping this weekend to get some bananas.. mmm. So another question I read your blog frequently by way of Inner workings of a college graduate and I saw the package you sent her, may I ask where in the world did you find the pumpkin spice granola? I have to try some. thanks

  28. greendogwine says:

    that wrap looks fabulous! congrats on scoring the gnu bars!

  29. lighterportions says:

    I’m so glad you’re feeling a bit better now! Lucky you and the giant box of Gnu Bars! We don’t even get those in Canada as far as I know. If I ever travel to the US I must remember to keep my eye out for them haha.

    Just caught up on your last post too and that’s SO cool about the reader sighting. That would definitely make ya feel like a celebrity :)
