I got up early to see Bobby off on his business trip (just until tomorrow afternoon). I ended up doing about 50 minutes of yoga with my extra time, then cleaned up the kitchen and living room a bit. I love cleaning. It makes me feel so calm.
When I got to work I made oats – 1/2 cup oats, a whole banana (sliced), a cup of vanilla almond milk, and about a cup of water. Nice and soupy. The picture came out all fuzzy, but it looks the same as every other morning oats picture! I snacked on an (unpictured) apple mid-morning so that I wouldn’t be too hungry at lunch…
Lunch today was free – Engineering lunch! We went to Garden Fresh, that awesome veggie restaurant in Mountain View. I got the steamed veggies and tofu with brown rice and a nice sweet brown sauce. I had about a cup of rice and finished off all of the tofu/veggies. It also came with a small bowl of veggie/tofu soup. (These pics aren’t from today; the veggies look pretty much the same but with chunks of tofu instead of fake chicken.)
When we got back to the office I had another (unpictured) apple for dessert.
Lunch and lunch dessert actually filled me up quite a bit, but around 3:15 my office got our weekly Costco delivery and there were delicious apples just staring at me. So I had one. Later on I had a chocolate brownie Zbar.
After work I dropped off a book at the library and took a nice 30-minute walk around downtown Mountain View. I didn’t get in my lunch walk today because of the lunch with coworkers, so this was really refreshing. I love being outside.
For dinner I had a large stirfry with egg whites (4) and ketchup. I kept dinner light because I had something really exciting in mind for dessert. The stirfry included egg whites, 1 apple (small), cabbage, Chinese cabbage, broccoli, a big carrot, mushrooms, and some sesame oil – and lots of seasoning & soy sauce. That’s organic ketchup on top.
Dessert was a monster. I had half an apple, a bunch of frozen mango (heated up), a persimmon (fuyu), a little less than 1/2 cup TJ’s high fiber cereal, white chocolate raspberry yogurt (1 cup), whipped cream (more added while eating), and this brand new Pumpkin Pecan Butter (this is 1 tablespoon but I added another later on) from Williams Sonoma. Heaven! I could eat this every day for every meal!
I had more frozen mango with whipped cream and Pumpkin Pecan Butter because is was just so freaking good. I’m curled up on the couch now watching House and I think I might break out my new Real Simple – haven’t read it yet! Enjoy your night Thanks for all of the lovely anniversary wishes. You guys are so sweet and really brighten my day, so THANK YOU!
