a cereal kind of day

No rain this morning – yay!  Nice weather instantly puts me in a good mood, I love it, but of course it’s raining now!  I slept in a little today since it was a late night and when I woke up all I wanted was cereal.

I mixed 1/2 museli with 1/2 granola.

And, topped the bowl with a sliced banana and almond milk.  Perfect!


I couldn’t wait for lunch today!  Leftover Lentil Almond Stir-fry and a beer bread muffin with a laughing cow cheese wedge.

Mmmmm…this lentil dish is so good.  I can’t wait to make it again.  I definitely recommend the pre-cooked lentils too.  It makes for a really easy weeknight meal.  I also saw pre-cooked brown lentils at Trader Joes, but I’m really not sure what the difference is besides color.

The beer bread was better today!  Maybe it gets better with age? 🙂

After lunch, was a Cherry Almond Chocolate Cluster.

These things are messy, but so good!  I would make them again in a second.  I ate the yogurt a few hours later mostly just because I love this yogurt.

I’m planning a trip to the gym after work for a tempo run on the treadmill and some weights, we’ll see what happens…

Did you know these fun facts about lemons?  Apparently, they are super nutritious!  Check out this article.

A few of my favorite facts:

  • One lemon contains a full day’s supply of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, but that’s the whole fruit; the juice holds about a third. Lemon juice is also about 5 percent citric acid, making it a natural for slowing the browning or oxidation of fresh, raw foods: apples, avocados, bananas, and other fruits. That power, and the C, makes the lemon a real health fruit.
  • They make a versatile household cleaner – Dip a halved lemon in salt for a bit of gentle abrasive power, then scour brass, copper, or stainless-steel pots, pans, and sinks. Rub a cut lemon (sans salt) on aluminum to brighten it. Used lemons tossed in the disposal will deodorize it.
