Yep, someone found my blog with that search term today. I chuckled, and can’t help but thinking about what they meant by “nibbles” even though I keep trying not to think about it.
Just to note some of my other new obsessions: delicious (Yes I realize that I am sometimes way behind the times…) and a blog called TasteSpotting. I have found that instead of printing out countless recipes and then never organizing them, I could instead bookmark and tag them on delicious for easy searching for later. And TasteSpotting – pure food porn and more stuff for my delicious accout.
Otherwise it has been a pretty standard Friday – get up, run (slow enough that the boy was literally running around me, backwards, and other shenanigans at times – I was not all that amused ), eat, go to work, spend my early Friday napping, yadda yadda yadda. Eats were great and I tried something new, which always pleases me.
Breakfast (532 cal): An un-pictured bunch of cherry essence prunes and super yummy pancakes that included: 1/2 C egg whites; 1/2 C oats; 1 super ripe banana; 1 T flax meal; 3 crushed walnuts; generous amount of cinnamon; stingy sprinkle of nutmeg, cloves, and ginger; 1/4 t baking powder, 1 packet splenda. I topped them with SF syrup. Amazing. Have you tried these yet? If not get on that this weekend!
Snack (150 cal): Dr. Krackers with cottage cheese.
Lunch (510 cal): Large veggie salad from the deli, which might I say was fricking amazing. Seriously. It contained: romaine, broccoli, cauliflower, olives, green pepper, celery, cucumber, carrots, onions, beets , a packet of roasted almonds and FF ranch. BTW, those 100 calorie packets of roasted almonds by Emeralds are super yummy, I’ve only been able to find them at one store though.
A little later I finished lunch with an oikos topped with a vita top and strawberries. Um, yum.
Snack (177 cal): Un-pictured: samples of cookie and bread at the store. Carrots while cooking dinner.
Dinner (483 cal): Something new – Tandoori Tofu. I simply pressed my tofu during our run this morning, added 1/2 a jar of tandoori paste to a zip-lock baggie, tossed in the tofu and coated it, and then let it marinade all day. When I got home I baked it at 425 for about 30 minutes. On the side I had some roasted pepper and onion bulgur pilaf as well as sauteed broccoli. The sweet roasted veggies were a nice contrast to the tangy, spicy tandoori. So yummy.
For dessert I had a new Mint Chocolate VitaTop with ice cream. Ummm…. yuck. Imagine an altoid brownie…. curiously strong indeed. I’m so sorry I bought a dozen of these and I may see about getting a credit or something.
Late Snack (225 cal): Strawberries, the sweetest nectarine topped with crumbled Nature Valley Nut Clusters – Roasted Almond. Also a few un-pictured cherry essence prunes.
