Normally I wait until the end of my post to tell you about my mid-afternoon snack but I am just way too happy and excited about it that I must share now! First of all, I just COULDN’T wait. I HAD to stop and buy more nut butter today after work!!!!!!!! It’s a total addiction, I swear. But look at what I found!!!!!!!!!!!
I did a happy dance in Publix, that’s for sure. And I totally broke it open on my way home and swiped at it with my fingers. Holy goodness, this stuff is flippin’ a-m-a-z-i-n-g! No doubt about it, I could have eaten the entire jar on the 5 minute drive home. It’s so rich and creamy! I tried to control myself until I got home and made a snack….the snack to end all snacks….the snack of heaven……………
A toasted Arnold’s Sandwich Thin (I was DYING for carbs today!) with who knows how much of this love in a jar and topped with half a sliced banana. Every bite was amazing. I could eat this stuff at every meal and I just might. Actually, it probably will be incredibly dangerous for me to have in the house because I’m sensing some late night cravings ahead…………
But anyways! Back to the start of this Tuesday!
This morning I had another fab. breakfast cookie around 6:15 am:
I ate it while going through some bloggies on my google reader and DANG, these cookies have blown up on blogworld!!!!! Gina, you better patent this recipe!!! This cookie was the usual 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein power, 2 tbsp silk and a big spoonful almond butter——-how amazing would this cookie be with chocolate peanut butter???!!!! 😉
Then, around 9:15 I snacked on a cashew larabar:
And drank my favorite orange juice on the planet! It was practically bottled in my backyard growing up…love it!
I also sipped on another delish Tazo Passion tea with honey while I worked….
For lunch today I had my new favorite, a baked sweet potato with a half cup of whipped cottage cheese
Another honeycrisp apple
And, lastly, a macaroon for dessert:
And, well, you already know what my afternoon snack was! I’ve been starving all day long and in a very snacky mood. I think its all the burning I did in BodyPump last night that has caught up with me. Tonight I’m going to a 6 pm freestyle spin class and even though I feel quite pooped right now, I know I’ll feel better after I go.
Today at work I did random monotonous jobs to continue prepping for Thanksgiving. I baked more rolls, made bagels and, all afternoon, peeled and cored 80 apples to make apple pie filling.
UGH it took forever but made enough filling for about 15-20 pies. I vowed never to eat another apple again….but then I broke out my honeycrisp 🙂
Here’s a peak at lots of turkey day goodies!
I’ve gotta run and get two loads of laundry done before I head to the gym. I’m trying to get everything organized and packed up so I won’t feel as stressed out in the next 48 hours!
See you for dinner!
