i am a bottomless pit

I have been a bottomless pit today!  I wanted snack after snack after snack…maybe I was lacking some protein in my meals?  Kind of weird considering I took another rest day today from my workouts (maybe next week I will finally get back on track!).

Anyways, on to today’s eats…

For breakfast, I mixed up a yogurt bowl to-go.

In the bowl:

  • 1 container Stonyfield French Vanilla Low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxmeal
  • 3/4 sliced banana
  • cinnamon crispies (One Lucky Duck)
  • raw granola (One Lucky Duck)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp mango butter
  • fresh blueberries
  • sprinkle of unsweetened coconut

This was delicious!  And, easy to bring with me in my to-go container.

Mid-morning, I snacked on some dried pineapple (unsweetened) dipped in peanut butter.  Why not?!

Then, came lunch.

I feasted on leftover pasta with romanesco from last night.

Served over a bed of lettuce, this was great cold.  This pasta dish is really good – give it a try!!

And, a yogurt and apple.

Yes, that is a YoBaby yogurt from Stonyfield…I heard some good things from a few bloggers about the YoBaby yogurt and wanted to give it a try.  Plus, the banana flavor is made with milk and real banana puree!  It was yummy.

Each container of YoBaby banana contains 110 calories (for 4 oz due to the whole milk used), 4 grams of fat and 4 grams of protein.

Mid-afternoon, I snacked on medjool dates with peanut butter.  I love peanut butter!

But, I wasn’t done there.  I also dipped some pretzels in the peanut butter and had a granola bar…bottomless pit!

Of course, due to all of my snacks, I was not very hungry for dinner, but I knew that I needed some veggies, so I made up a salad and heated up some soup.

Salad with green leaf lettuce, beet greens (so good!), beets, toasted pecans, goat gouda and goddess dressing.

I rarely buy dressing at the store, but so many people have talked about Annie’s Goddess dressing, that when I spotted it in the store I needed to buy it.  I couldn’t put it down!  Ha.  Luckily, it has very minimal ingredients and tastes great!

Annie’s Goddess Dressing

Ingredients: *Canola Oil, Water, *Tahini, *Apple Cider Vinegar, *Soy Sauce (water, *soybeans, sea salt *wheat), *Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, *Garlic, *Sesame Seeds, *Parsley, *Chives, Xanthan Gum.  *organic

I also had a bowl of Amy’s Lentil Vegetable Soup.

It was just okay.  The flavors were good, but the lentils and vegetables were super mushy.  I ate about half before feeling full!

All in all, a good quick dinner.

I received my order of GloBars today from Angela and I can’t wait to try them out.  I ordered the variety pack and raw bars.  They look awesome.  Thanks, Angela!!

I think some ice cream is in store for tonight.  I picked up Stonyfield’s Java at the store today – my favorite!!

Good night. 🙂
