Hi guys! Happy Friday!
I’ve had a rather painful day at work. No burns but I smashed my fingers in between a wall and a heavy cart and they are already turning black and blue :(. Along with a migraine, its not pleasant! However, I just popped a feverfew tablet (an herb I have found helpful in migraine relief) and am about to do some yoga, which most always nixes my headaches in the bud.
This morning I snacked on this bar—
Which I LOVE , but I was super snacky all morning!!!! By 6:15 I was famished and started picking at leftover pecans from the pecan sticky buns that I had baked. I finally took at break at 7:30 and ate a very filling breakfast of oatmeal!
Look at that HUGE bag of oats!!!!!!!!!
I am just loving this new larger portion that I ate yesterday and today. Today I packed 3/4 cup oats, 1 1/2 cups skim milk, pumpkin seed butter and cinnamon/brown sugar. It was awesome. However, I think I will stick to making my oats with water in the future while at work because I had a couple almost major oatmeal explosions in the break room microwave today. Milk seems to foam up way more than water does when you cook in the micro….it also took a solid 5 minutes to make this, which cut into my 30 minute break time that I like to spend reading, drinking my tea and waking up Ryan. 😉 But then again, it did lend a super creamy and delicious texture to my oaties!
For the remainder of the morning I just baked, baked and baked. Stopping to taste-test (hehe) a pecan sticky bun and some new rye bread that had just come out of the oven (tiny bites of each!). At 12:30 when I got off, I met Courtney, a blog reader for lunch! Courtney actually recognized me from the blog at a yoga class one day and we really hit it off! She went to the detox weekend a couple weeks ago and goes to school at UF. She headed up my way this afternoon and we had a lovely lunch together sitting outside! She talked me into trying one of these, which she swears by—
I’ve always been scared of these but today I LOVED it!!! Really really yummy. Too bad this bad boy was almost $4!!! Insane! Good for a treat though and really healthy as well. I wish I could afford to drink more! 🙁
As for my meal, I got the chicken tabbouli wrap from the deli at Greenwise. It consisted of a spinach wrap with rotisserie chicken, fresh tabbouli and a splash of herb dressing. It rocked!
I demolished it!
After lunch and chatting, I cruised around the store for a few groceries (yes, I clearly cannot leave my place of work….hahaha):
Yummy fennel (!!), BEETS, yams, yogurt, bars, chocolate (!!!!!!!!), grapies, scottish oats, pure maple syrup, canola oil, whole grain quinoa, navel oranges, split pea soup, white kidney beans and, last but not least, special new bubble bath!
I’m finally home now and about to do some yoga. I might do a 90 minute download today….we’ll see. Yoga reallyyyyyyy helps my migraines. Its amazing, really. Sometimes when nothing else will work I do a few sun salutations and WHAM! its a goner.
See you for dinner!
