Anniversary Day :)

Today is our anniversary!  3 years icon smile Anniversary Day :)  Still not sure what we’re doing tonight, but I’ll fill you in later…

Review: Cassava Chips

cas original m 0 Anniversary Day :)These are really good!  They have double the fiber of normal potato chips.  Bobby got them at Whole Foods and I had to try them.  I’m guessing I had about 1 serving (23 chips is the serving size, 150 calories, 6 grams fat, 2 grams fiber).  No preservatives in these guys either, and 70%+ organic ingredients.

Yesterday (Tuesday) morning I woke up before the alarm and got in a lovely 40 minutes of yoga from yogadownload.com.  Thanks so much Julia for recommending this!  I also got a rec from Heather to check out yogatoday.com, so I’ll let you know what i think of that too.

Breakfast was a standard – 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water plus a splash, and a whole sliced banana.  Add in at the end: 3/4 cup soy milk.

Mid-morning I snacked on an apple, then went for my lunch walk.

Lunch was a sandwich made of 1/4 cup lowfat ricotta and 1.5 tablespoons of olallieberry jam (all out now – I scraped the inside of the jar).

On the side I had a salad – 1/2 an apple (the other half is in Bobby’s lunch), broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onions, vegan nacho cheese, topped with olive oil and lemon juice.

And an apple on the side (love apples).

Snack was the same as yesterday – a vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt and a BSI muffin, and later another apple.  Bobby and I really like these muffins.  I think there are only 6 left and we started with 16!

Bobby and I went to guitar center to look at things… He’s getting me a piano!

We went out for dinner – the pre-anniversary dinner – to a Thai place called Blue Mango.  We got 3 things and shared them all.

  • Shrimp Papaya Salad
  • Chicken Pad See Ew (thick noodles stirfried with a few veggies) – kind of oily but that didn’t stop me.  So good.
  • Mushroom Mountain (self explanatory name; also had baby corn, bamboo shoots, and tofu)
  • Brown rice

So I was very very full after this meal.  Definitely a splurge.  It certainly was delicious.

Can’t wait until tonight… thanks for all of the lovely suggestions!
