Happy humpday everyone
Even though I was pretty tired this morning when I woke up (Dexter made a flying leap in the middle of the night and landed on my head), I still made it to the gym to do some cardio. Preworkout snack was, of course, half a banana with some almond butter, and I did 10 minutes on the elliptical followed by 15 minutes on the treadmill. When I got back, I made a really delicious bowl of oatmeal using soy milk, dried cranberries, almond butter and the other half of my banana. Seriously, I don’t know why, but this bowl of oatmeal was the best I’ve had in some time! It was the perfect consistency and super creamy and tasty.
We did A LOT last night in school. I finished off my ice box cookies, linzer cookies (with raspberry jam and powdered sugar), made almond macaroons and madelines. Everything came out pretty well—especially that baklava! Look at how gooey and delicious that looks! Too bad each phyllo layer literally has a pound of butter in it. I had my fair share of licks of the syrup though, which was super sweet and quite yummy. I’m packing everything up and bringing it to work with me today where I know it will all go very fast. 😉
My tray to be graded
I’m trying a new sandwich today for lunch. I’m sick of tofurky, have no hummus and had almond butter yesterday…..so today I made a veggie/tahini pita using about a tbsp of tahini, a carrot, spinach and half a bell pepper. It looks like a salad in a pita, we will see how good it tastes! I’m also bringing a tiny container of veggie chips, a pear and a peach soy yogurt for a snack later.
Have a great day everyone!
