That is what Bobby calls them. He says I need to eat more carby carbs because I am always hungry. So this week I have been carby-carbing, yoga-ing, and walking. I have also been slacking on the pictures – but I found some lovely replacements.
For breakfast this morning I had a honey-wheat bagel with smart balance light. It was toasted and it was delicious. Very carby.
We got free lunch at work (yay Fridays). I had an apple (no surprise there), some fruit salad (grapes, pineapple, cantaloupe), some salad (random veggies), and a sandwich. The sandwich was Turkey & Cranberry – “Alfalfa Sprouts, Mayonnaise, Whole Cranberry Sauce, Roasted Turkey Breast, Green Leaf Lettuce, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Sourdough” (description from Specialty’s website). Carby carb carbs.
Specialty’s sandwiches are very large. I would say that half of one is a normal sandwich size.
I had another apple midafternoon, and then a small apple around 5pm.
There were a bunch of sandwiches leftover so I brought some home for Bobby’s and my dinner. This time I had half of a vegetarian - “Alfalfa Sprouts, Herb, Mayonnaise, Stone Ground Mustard, Swiss, Provolone, Green Leaf Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Cucumber, Dill Pickle, Mushroom, Mixed Bell Peppers, Pepperoncini, Avocado, Italian Vinaigrette, Ranch Dressing, Black Pepper” and another half of a Turkey & Cranberry. The other thing I love about these sandwiches is that they are PACKED with veggies.
Bobby and i split an oatmeal-raisin-chocolate-dipped cookie for dessert. And to finish off, I had half of a raisin bagel with smart balance! Such repetitions today! But Bobby is right – carby carbs fill me up and keep me full for hours. I’m liking the thick, heavy bread and bagels that I’ve been having. Maybe it’s the wintery cold weather, or maybe my tastes are changing, or maybe I’m just becoming more relaxed. What is your favorite “carby carb”? Mine might just be a honey-wheat bagel. They are so good!
Have a lovely evening and enjoy your weekend!
