Everyone at work LOVED the chocolate croissants! I mean, those things were gone in 20 minutes flat and I brought in a good number of them! I love making other people happy through food 🙂 For my lunch today I packed a simple, but good, tofurkey sandwich on Ezekiel bread with honey mustard and a ton of spinach. I also had a very large fuji apple. The protein, carbs and fiber of that meal kept me going for a few hours til I stopped and had a break, eating my snack of mixed nuts (brazil nuts, cashews and dried cranberries) with a navel orange. Brazil nuts are my favorite nut in the whole world. I can’t find them all the time so I don’t buy them all the time (that and they are more expensive) but they are SO delicious and buttery and satisfying. They have a higher fat content than any other nut so it keeps me satisfied only eating two or three. If you have never tried them you should….you will be in for a treat! I think chocolate coated brazil nuts would be to die for…I might have to make that at home! With my snack I also drank some hot tea that I brought with me. Its so convenient to bring tea bags with you places because hot water is usually free and its a great pick-me-up.
Dinner tonight was a Sunshine Burger with spinach, ketchup and melted FYH mozzarella cheese (actually really liking this stuff second time around!!) on a toasted Ezekiel English Muffin. I also had a huge salad with carrot, broccoli slaw, and bell pepper and drizzled with Annie’s dressing. Easy to make and clean up. Gotta love those! We are just preparing for practical tomorrow night in class so I won’t be coming home with any more pastries til tomorrow. Tonight I’m just making the doughs and fillings so they can sit overnight in the cooler and firm up. It should be an easy and short night (I hope!).
