It is a rainy and dreary day here in the Midwest! It was one of those days I felt just a little glum because it was so grey and rainy out. It also kept me from running this morning, which always makes me a little crank, but I still squeezed in a workout at the gym before going to work this morning.
For breakfast, I ate a cup of Nature’s Path Organic Flax Plus flakes. It’s surprisingly tasty – it’s barely sweet (4g of sugar per serving) and I like the whole grain flavor. I have really been trying to get more protein into my breakfasts, but I never have a huge appetite after working out and like plain, bland foods in the morning. I also had a cup of my favorite tea – genmaicha. It’s green tea with roasted brown rice. It is delicious and nutty-tasting.
Mid-morning, I ate a handful of almonds (26 almonds):
For lunch, I ate another bowl of those brown rice vermicelli noodles I had yesterday. I still have enough for one more lunch. 🙂
When I got home, I heated up leftovers from my husband’s dinner last night with some water and a serving of bean thread noodles. This was warm and comforting, perfect for a rainy day.
For dessert, I cut a pineapple and ate some..
My husband and I are heading to our community group tonight. It’s fun and I love to see these friends, but it’s also tiring. Tomorrow is a long day for both of us. We both work all day and then go to class at night. This is the one night a week we don’t eat dinner at home. My husband usually grabs something quick and I just make do with whatever snacks I have at my office. But thankfully, the weekend is just around the corner! 🙂
