Supersize Me (just a little)

We had a really nice Saturday… in the afternoon we were going to see Food, Inc. in Palo Alto but got stuck in traffic and ended up getting there 20 minutes late. So we decided to see it another time (today I hope) and instead get my favorite soy frozen yogurt.

05 frozen yogurt

This was a medium soy frozen yogurt topped with the freebies – cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa. Bobby got a natural/chocolate swirl (dairy) with strawberries. He got the small. Whattttt.

I also scored these OPI polishes buy one get one free (discontinued colors). They’re shimmery but you can’t really see it here.

Later that night I had parent-teacher conferences from 7-8pm, and they went overtime. Boo. We were a little late to a comedy show (Johnny Walker and Brent Weinbach) but we enjoyed it a lot. They were both hysterical. My sense of humor is… odd. I don’t know how much a normal person would have liked it, but I was highly amused.

Finally got home around 10pm and I was hungry again (what else is new?). I made some kabocha drizzled with a sample of Sunbutter and more sesame seeds.

06 sunbutter kabocha

I found another new snack that I didn’t take a picture of – basmati rice with Sunbutter. Β It’s delicious.

I made an awesome dish on Friday night based on a HealthyYum. It rocked, and I’ll share the recipe tomorrow.

How was your weekend?

    Your yogurt looks delicious! Twist soft serve is pretty much the best thing ever.

    I’m in the same boat with the need to gain and healthy fat additions, so bring on the avocado, nut butters and seeds (toasted sesame seeds go with anything–or at least I pretend they do).

    OPI deal? Score!

    All the food looks great! I am bad at bingeing on nutbutters so I don’t keep them in the house. I need to make friends with them.

    Weekend is perfect!

    I LOVE fro-yo! Only just discovered it…though I have not tried the soy version before. It looks delish!

    i hope you get to see food, inc. – i saw it awhile ago, and think you will love it!

    love the kabocha/sunbutter combo – i just bought my first kabocha (truly an exciting day seriously). what’s the best way to cook it/steam it? this gal needs some pointers!

    Ooh, I love the cinnamon/nutmeg/cocoa froyo topping! That froyo looks delish. The OPI nail polish shades are so pretty, too. I love that brand!

    I’m so happy for you that you’re doing well with no binging, getting more healthy fat and indulging yourself with that soy ice cream! that all can tell how good you’re doing with eating normal and be confident about yourself. I’m really happy for you! πŸ™‚

    Haha boys are always weak compared to me on froyo. Can never beat me on that category πŸ˜‰

    Yay for OPI nail polish. Love that stuff!

    Mmmm, kabocha +sunbutter+ sesame sounds amazing! I’m so glad to hear that you know what’s right for your body.

    Your weekend sounds like you had tons of fun. I just had a blast at a baseball game, ahhh glorious weekends πŸ™‚

    basmati rice with sunbutter? that is so going on my “to try” list.

    good luck with the gains – i know how frustrating it can be. the healthy fats make it more fun! πŸ™‚

    I’ve been trying to up my healthy fat intake too. I unintentionally lost a few lbs and need to gain them back.

    I’ve never seen frozen soy yogurt anywhere! We need more things like that here in Charlotte.
