Not Carrots

I am pleased to report that my snack this morning did not involve carrots!  Instead, I broke out a bag of Newman’s Own Mini Honey Wheat pretzels that I purchased when I was in the States.

A 110 calorie serving is 20 pretzels which is quite a bit!  I was impressed.

Ingredients are: organic unbleached wheat flour, organic whole wheat flour, organic honey, organic sugar, organic sunflower oil, salt, yeast, soda.

They have a very “healthy” flavour which some may not like in their “junk” food, but I loved these!  They were like sweet crackers.

I consumed about half of my salad for lunch before I realized I hadn’t taken a picture.  Oops!  I am usually so eager to crack into these puppies that I often take a bite or two before taking a picture.  Today I must have been extra-hungry!

  • Baby spinach
  • 1/2 sliced tomato
  • 1/2 sliced avocado
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Red pepper
  • Hummus
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cubed cheddar cheese
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette

For dessert, two squares of dark chocolate!

Thankfully, tonight Big Brother is on!  Is it just me, or are you having a difficult time adjusting to Wednesday episodes of BB?  My Tuesday nights have been so bleak ever since, like there is a gaping hole now.  *Sniff*

Since I didn’t walk to the subway this morning, I hope to head out after dinner.  My itinerary for this evening is as such:

  • Cook dinner
  • Make lunch for tomorrow
  • Clean kitchen
  • Go for walk
  • Blog
  • Watch BB

Not bad, not bad…

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
