Breakfast/ Lunch

Much Better

Hi everyone!

I’m VERY happy to tell you that I had a MUCH better day than yesterday. Thank goodness! Last night I went to bed at 6:45 (!!!) and felt very refreshed this morning after a good 8 hours of sleep. How crazy is that…I go to bed before most of you even eat dinner! I am 95 years old. Anyways! This morning I had another banana and peanut butter before work:

And more blueberry chocolate oatmeal AT work =)

My, how I just loooove those blueberries in my oatmeal! And I love that my bowl of oatmeal is so BIG and takes me my entire “lunch break” (how ironic haha) to eat! My boss calls me the oatmeal girl ๐Ÿ™‚

After work I hung out for awhile and did some grocery shopping—nothing terribly exciting—just yogurts, veggie burgers and bread (of course!). When I got home, I made a grilled cheese sammie with my 100% whole wheat sunflower flax bread and one slice of pepperjack cheese. I had a cup of my favorite tomato soup on the side as well as a big ol’ cluster of grapes.

Mmm I love this bread that we make! It is LOADED with ground flax, whole flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey and, of course, whole wheat goodness. It is a smaller loaf, which means smaller slices, but it is totally worth it because of the grainy crunch you get with every bite! Smaller slices = thicker slices in my book! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This afternoon I’m going to run and then probably do a little yoga to ward off any sore muscles! Thank goodness tomorrow is FRIDAY!

    I love bread like that! Around NY you see “health nut bread” that reminds me of this. It is SO good.

    hi jenna! (or anyone!)
    just wondering, how do you feel about fage 0% vs. fage 2%? i accidentally bought the 2% yesterday instead of the 0 and LOVED IT but i’m not sure if the 0 is a better pick nutrition-wise?
    thanks!

    I don’t think you’re an “old person” for going to bed early – you get up at 3 a.m. for pete’s sake!

    You would probably the love the sunflower seed cookies I buy at Whole Foods! Gracie’s Best is the brand. They are small and sweet and sunflower-y! yum ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love your grilled cheese and soup combo…perfect!
    Have a good day, Jenna!

    That bread sounds amazing. I often add flax seeds to my no knead loaf but have never tried grinding them first. How much do you add to a loaf?

      Monica,

      I honestly don’t know because I don’t do it! We have mixers that mix the bread and I form and bake the bread. We make about 50-100 lbs of dough at a time though so its on a huge scale!

      Mags,

      I honestly like the 2% better because its creamier! I think it has about 50 more calories but is definitely veryyyyy creamy! Nutritionally, either are great. One is just made with reduced fat milk and the other made with skim.
