My day yesterday was so jam-packed that I didn’t have time to blog. I did of course still read all of your lovely blogs! :D I went from school to work to home finally around 8-ish and all I wanted to do was collapse on the couch…and I did! haha.
So today I started off with my homemade baked oatmeal!
It turned out really good…I think that next time, I am going to add some vanilla protein powder to make it even more filling and yummy. I made some hard boiled eggs a few nights ago, so I had one for protein.
For lunch I got to come home and eat because I had a doctor’s appointment. I love eating my own food for lunch instead of cafeteria food. Just 3 more weeks…
So I had a pasta repeat of last week…
with black beans, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. It was delish!
afternoon snack: I had another egg with an lovely orange
And then it was time to run! It was a glorious run. I just focused on my music and completely zoned out. For some reason, I was feeling kind of gloomy but once I did my run, I felt like a million bucks…and THAT is why I love running so much! It takes the blues right away :D
For dinner, I tried something I’ve never tried before…roasted brussel sprouts! After reading through Jenna’s post comments on everybody’s favorite green veggies and favorite ways to eat them, I got SO many good ideas! I bought some brussel sprouts last weekend for the first time and decided to roast them.
I coated them in EVOO and garlic salt and put them in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes, turning halfway through.
They were awesome!!! I can’t believe I have been tried this vegetable before!
My mom was grilling lean hamburgers, so I paired the brussel sprouts with that.
Then came a little dessert:
Oikos plain greek yogurt with half a Kashi chocolate caramel bar and a little spoonful of peanut butter.
I think Oikos is my favorite greek yogurt. I haven’t had it in a while so when I tried it tonight, I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome it tasted! There was 0 tangyness, which is perfect for me. YUM!
Ok, now its time to get ready to hit the sack soon…tomorrow will be another school and work day but I will hopefully still get in a post!
Good night! <3
