Vietnamese for dinner… again :)

My dentist appointment was fine but by the time I sat down for breakfast I was starving! I made Gina’s recipe for a Breakfast Cookie – I followed it exactly but left out the protein powder and increased the oats.  This was 1/2 cup oats, 1 T almond butter, cinnamon, splenda, 1 whole mashed banana, and a little less than 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk.  I also had an (unpictured) honeycrisp apple on the side.  It was so good.

I went for my daily hour walk, and then for lunch I had a few delicious things:

  • Flatout wrap with chicken breast and pumpkin puree
  • Leftover Vietnamese salad (about 1.5 cups)
  • 2 apples… I had one, was still hungry, so I chomped down on another.  Work restocked on apples so there are lots now.

For a snack was this bar:

  • Quaker PB granola bar

When I got home from work I downloaded a yoga mp3 from – what an awesome site!  They have a bunch of 20-minute yoga downloads for free.  They’re not videos; they’re just mp3s that guide you through the routines.  They also have pose guides for download (PDFs).  The one I did was Power Vinyasa Flow #3.

And for dinner we went to Vietnamese (again)!  This is our meal out from two weeks ago that we never used.  I realize we’ve been treated to meals a lot during this Thanksgiving Challenge.  It’s probably what kept us from going over the limit.

  • veggie spring rolls (with tofu) and peanut dipping sauce
  • Shrimp & Pork lotus root salad (I put a lot of hot sauce on this tonight – I was sniffling so badly by the end of the meal)
  • broth & bites from Bobby’s pho (beef noodle soup) – unpictured

When we got back I had 2 apples for dessert, sliced up:

And 3 unpictured pumpkin cookies.

I can’t wait until work is over tomorrow.  I want the long weekend to come already!  I want to spend some quality time with Bobby and just chill out for a while.  Hope you all have a great night 🙂 For everyone traveling, stay safe!

  5. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm That food for dinner seriously looks so good! I would get the same thing too 😉 Do you guys go out to dinner 1 time a week or? Thats our sort of rule- we get 1 dinner out per week. I really enjoy it!
