Well, I thought the storm had passed us for good and even spied a little bit of sun trying to peak out from under a cloud this afternoon…..but then I just heard the familiar pounding on my roof and, of course, it’s pouring once again :(. Hopefully tomorrow will be nicer!
My overnight oats kept me going quite well until I had lunch at 11:30. I think this combo, cold with the yogurt, keeps me full for the longest amount of time. Good to know!
I enjoyed my protein bar today (it was quite filling and I loooooved the texture!!!) but want to get into detail about it and right now I’m rushing off to school so that review will have to wait until tomorrow. I hope yall don’t mind! I have lots to say! 🙂
For dinner, I made one of my simple favorites. Pan seared salmon with roasted brussels sprouts and a sweet potato. With some random grapes in there for good measure.
I used the frozen wild salmon fillets I got last weekend and whole foods. It was easy to defrost in the fridge overnight and quick to cook on the stove! This is a great find because while I love salmon, I rarely buy it because I know I have to eat it that night since its fresh. Frozen is a great option here! I seasoned it lightly with sea salt and pepper and cooked it in 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil in my cast iron for about 4 minutes per side—it had a deliciously yummy exterior and a cool interior—my favorite! I also roasted some sprouts and baked this YAM (i thought it was a sweet potato but it’s actually a yam!) in the microwave for four minutes. Much quicker than the oven! I added about a tsp of earth balance to it so it would be nice and creamy.
This meal was soooooo satisfying! That’s why I love salmon and sweet potatoes. They are just “feel good” food. I always feel wonderful after eating them and know it was a great healthy choice for my body as well. Not to mention how great they taste!!! =) For a snack later, I’m bringing a granola packet. Who know if it will be a late night or not…I’m going an hour early to get the information I missed from my meeting yesterday and start rolling some truffles!
Have a good night!
