Thank God for my snacks because they were very much needed this afternoon! I had my cherries:
around 2:30 pm this afternoon. I only ended up working an hour later (I’m usually done at 4, but finished up around 5:30 pm) and thought I would last until I got home for dinner, but nope! I had a SNACK ATTACK while waiting for the bus (maybe it was the boredom too? Waiting for the bus is the pits). Thankfully, my Pro Bar was easily accessible.
These tiny, little bars pack in a mean nutritional punch. One of them is almost 400 calories alone! I ended up eating about 1/3rd so as not to spoil my dinner. This is what was left (which I’ll eat tomorrow):
They are vegan and very tasty. I would definitely buy one again.
By the time I got home, I wanted a quick, filling, and incredibly healthy dinner. After destroying that ENTIRE pizza last night, my body was craving something well-balanced, simple, and colourful. I came up with a perfect concoction:
This meal contains:
- 1 baked sweet potato topped with 0% plain yogurt (not Greek! 😦 ) and cinnamon
- 1 cup of cherries
- 1 can of lentil soup
I always used to think that baked potatoes actually needed to be, uh, baked in the oven which takes upwards of 45 minutes. Then I read Caitlin’s awesome blog and learned that you can zap one of these puppies in the microwave for 5.5 minutes! It worked like a charm. This is my new favourite quick and easy meal. It was ready and on the table in 10 minutes.
This kind of looks like mold, eh?
I really like this type of lentil soup…
It’s very flavourful, has only a few ingredients, and has a great nutritional profile:
I eat the whole can which works out to be just over 2 servings. 20 grams of protein, 10 grams of fibre, 320 calories, 4 grams of fat, and a whole lotta deliciousness!!!! <– lame.
So I am absolutely stuffed and done eating for the day. So for dessert, I am trading in the sweetness of cookies or cake for the sweetness of Snuggies! Oh yeah, baby. Time for a photo shoot!
