New month!

Last night I had this:

And also another BSI muffin.  They are so good.

This morning I did yoga – Vinyasa power flow #3 – from  Such a great site.  Let me know if you check it out.

Breakfast at work was 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup soy milk, 1 cup water plus a splash, and 1 sliced banana.  The extra milk made it so creamy.

Snack was a Chocolate Brownie Zbar (my favorite).  Then I did my walk.  I finished a book I got from the library on Saturday called The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: And Other Small Acts of Liberation by Elizabeth Berg.  It’s a bunch of short stories about life and doing what you want and being happy.  It’s really good and I definitely recommend it.

For lunch I made a salad (3/4 apple, 1 tomato, romaine, mushrooms, bacon bits, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and s&p):

And a delicious open-faced sandwich (thinly sliced chicken, vegan nacho cheese, sliced 1/4 of an apple) on this new bread that I got from Trader Joe’s – the brand is Alvarado Street Bakery.  They make great bread.

I had a nice big snack of a BSI muffin, a vanilla chobani, and an apple.  I crumbled up the muffin and stirred it into the yogurt… so good:

And then when I came home I made dinner.  I gave the kelp noodles another try but I still don’t like them.  Tonight I mixed together the kelp noodles, veggies (carrot, tomato, onion), and I chopped up a big chunk of tofurkey.  I topped it with a soy sauce/vinegar/sugar dressing. I had to throw it out.

I also made butternut squash fries again, and due to the kelp noodle failure, I mostly just had the fries with organic ketchup.

For dessert I had 2 small fuyu persimmons and some grapes topped with a little more than 2/3 cup of lowfat ricotta cheese.  I am in love with this stuff.  I crumbled BSI muffins on top.

Bobby’s and my 3 year anniversary is this Wednesday – we still haven’t decided where to go out!  Any suggestions for type of food/cuisine?  What do you guys do to celebrate anniversaries?

  1. How about Vietnamese food?! Haha, do you guys happen to remember the first restaurant you guys ever went to together? Maybe hit it up or try something completely different.

    Anyhow, great eats for the day!

  2. hey! have you tried rinsing the kelp noodles under running water for about 10 minutes and then boiling them? i heard it helps with the texture!

  3. hey! thanks for the comment on my blog =)! thats so cool you are from mountain view! i’m moving back to CA soon and i live about 10 minutes from there! what a small world lol!

    ooh wow 3 years – congrats :D!

  4. Everything in this post looks especially delicious!! Well, except for the flop of kelp noodles. Never heard of them before, I’m really curious…

    Happy early anniversary!

  5. I tried a couple of workout from, it’s good overall, the only problem is that I’m not used to those names of the asanas. Have you memorized all them or you check it out before you do the class?

    Happy anniversary! I’m not good for ideas for celebration, but whatever you decide to you, let us to know so I got a new idea for my next anniversary! 🙂

  6. thank you for visiting my blog again!! so great to hear from you! i miss reading about your daily eats. HUGE congrats for your anniversary! amazing 🙂 i’m sure it will be fantastic no matter what you decide to do 😀

  7. hey girl!! i love tofurkey too! i haven’t tried the actual big turkey, but i’ve had the turkey slices. i eat them with mustard.

    as for an anniversary meal, i’d say a fun restaurant is benihana. i don’t know if you have one where you live, but it’s a japanese place where they cook on a stovetop in front of you. those places are always so fun and the chefs are usually pretty cool.

  8. I have tried eating kelp noodles as noodle soup instead of following the instructions on the package. I rinsed the noodles, and just threw it in with some veggie broth, veggies, and cracked an egg. The texture of the kelp noodles boiled in a broth is like vermicelli… Just slurp. However, I always get tummy problems after I eat it, so I’ve definitely cut back.

  9. Thanks so much foe the email yesterday! Good for you about giving kelp noodles another try; I always think every food deserves a second chance to redeem themselves! 😉 But too bad they were still gross. Oh well.
    I love!!! Pretty much my new obsession! I really like Dawnelle’s classes!

  10. Happy anniversary!

    Do you happen to have a fondue place near you? The Melting Pot, for instance, is very romantic! Also, any sort of tapas restaurant is usually a fun date night! 🙂

  11. Hmmm I’ve never tried kelp noodles. They sound interesting, but that’s too bad they didn’t taste very good.

    We usually switch it up for anniversary dinners although I think the last few were at sushi restaurants because we both have a slight obsession. Habachi dinners are always incrediby fun too!! I love when they flick the piece of egg into your mouth in the begining

  12. Love the apple/cheese combo – you reminded me that I haven’t had that in a while!

    We go all out for our anniversary – usually a big dinner (by big I mean $$$!) and priceline a 4 star hotel. Our 8th anniversary is December 22 – yahoo!

  13. Happy early anniversary!
    We almost always cook dinner together and go out for DESSERT! Then we watch movies and stuff.

  14. I’ll have to try that book! Sounds good!

    Congrats on your anniversary! We love Italian food, so we went to a local Italian place for our anniversary this year. I always look for the best restaurant setting (quiet, romantic, etc.). Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your time together!

  15. Love the eats today! So delicious 🙂
    Congrats & Happy Anniversary! That’s amazing. What a lucky couple…hmm, I hope you have fun wherever you go!

  16. Happy anniversary! This year, the husband and I went to see a glass museum with live glass-blowing for our anniversary. It was really fun and different and we got to bring home a souvenir. Then we went out to dinner at a favorite seafood restaurant.

  17. Thanks for that, and for anyone that is having trouble chopping onions without the tears, here’s an incredibly easy tip – put them in the fridge for a few hours, then chop them straight away after taking them out! No more tears! I found some more onion soup recipes here if anyone wants to try some more variations.
