That’s so Raven (It’s the future I can see)
I am so bummed I didn’t get around to posting for a third time yesterday. Unfortunately, I was exhausted and fell asleep on the couch around 8 pm. At some point, husband helped me to bed where I stayed for the next 10 hours. To be honest, it was kind of fabulous. Sleeping and doing nothing is my favourite hobby on the weekends. Ok. Maybe not just on the weekends!
Let’s rewind to yesterday’s afternoon snack. I had an organic apple and some crackers (I tried to find a link to the brand. I believe they are President’s Choice honey sesame, but I’m not sure!)
It was also a coworker’s last day, so there was cake. I had a small slice. One great thing I have noticed about healthy eating is that when I have something decadent like cake, it is about 10 times better than it used to be. Bonus!
I went to my friend’s after work and picked up the stroller (it’s awesome, by the way, and did I mention FREE?) so dinner was a bit later than usual. Husband and I were racking our brains, trying to think of something satisfying and quick. We decided on whole wheat spaghetti with marinara sauce. Two pasta nights in a row! Who am I, King Henry VIII? 😉
Yes, that is the cheap parmesan cheese that comes in the canister that is loaded with sodium and other unhealthy ingredients. Note to self: Only buy REAL parmesan. For health and food-blogging purposes.
Since I fell asleep so early, I didn’t have dessert, which is just as well due to the afternoon cake.
So this morning, I woke up fully rested and ready to go grocery shopping! I go as soon as I wake up (usually between 7 am -8 am) because I like to beat the crowds. I really love grocery shopping. Well, I like the “picking out” part, not so much the “paying” part.
Before heading out, I made a little bread-less banana peanut butter sandwich. I actually got this idea from a friend of my mom’s who ran a daycare. She made these for the kids, but also rolled them in shredded coconut. It is pretty genius.
You slice a banana in half and then lengthwise and then put some peanut butter on one half of each!
Sandwiched together, it makes a quick, satisfying snack.
By the time I got home, I was ready to have a full breakfast. Out of everything I bought, I most wanted a bagel and some cherries. Husband wanted strawberry/banana/chocolate chip pancakes so I made those for him because I am an AMAZING wife (caps lock necessary). Then I toasted myself a whole wheat/flax bagel and spread it with some plain cream cheese, and had that along with a small bowl of cherries and a big mug of coffee.
I love bagels, but I especially love bagels with cream cheese. And none of this “light” cheese business. I like full fat!
It was really, really good.
It’s turned into a grey day so I think I am just going to lay low, do some house chores, watch some tv, crochet, and generally bum around today. I am trying out a new recipe for dinner so stay tuned for that! I think on the weekends, I will try to write in the ol’ blog twice a day instead of three times. I’m on a computer all day at work, so it’s nice to take a little break.
Have a great day!
