Well I figured since this is a food blog, I should maybe let you know what was on my plate today!
I can't believe I am fessing up to the crazy random food I ate today, especially after claiming I am a healthy eater! haha.. but... that being said, let me set the mood of the day.
I woke up to a rainy, drizzly, dark morning. When I got up, Dave had already gone to work, and Lance the dog was crashed out on his couch. When he got up to go outside, he took one look at the day, groaned and walked back to his bed. I haven't seen him much since today!
I started my day with a "green monster" Check it out green monster movement they are soooo good!!!!
Mine had 2 cups spinach, 1/2 a frozen banana, peanut butter, ice cubes, almond milk and a wee little bit of sweetener. It was good, and I like getting a bunch of my greens done right off the bat!! Especially since I didn't eat anymore all day... by accident of course *winks*
I also snacked on a few pumpkin seeds that I made yesterday after carving my pumpkin! Is'nt she lovely... I named her big mama!! Lance had to check out what I was doing!
Then I made oatmeal, coconut, cranberry "healthy" cookies - I might have let a few slip into my mouth, they were really good!!
Lunch was chilli I made last night... very good. Sorry I don't have any pictures, I'm not much of a food blogger yet am I :) I scooped up the chili with a few taco chips! I love crunch!
While Lance and I visited my parents, we both had a yummy peanut butter cookie!! My mom makes great peanut butter cookies and they are sooo easy. 1 cup PB, 1/2 cup sugar and an egg, that's it!! Soooooooooooo good!! My mom made one special for Lance, he was more than in love!!
When I got home, I was feeling like comfort food, I was going to make one of my favorite dinners, eggs and roasted potatoes, but I ended up just having the potatoes!! (oops..) I boiled them and then tossed them in a hot pan with coconut oil and spices... Again, not the best choice, but remember, it's a comfort food day!! haha
Now it's about 8:00pm and I had a sudden urge to make lentil soup. (and drink tons of red wine!!) I don't think I'm going to eat any, as I'm full after all my crap food today!! (and for some reason all the red wine has disappeared from my kitchen, which is probably a good thing!!) It smells sooo good though!! Here is the place I found it. Click here for the yummy soup recipe!
(Ok the recipe is for pea soup, but I didn't have any peas, so I did the same thing but with lentils, I also added 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder and 1/2 an apple... I have no idea why the picture is sideways!!
Anyways, I was hoping I'd get a chance to watch some fantastic chick flick on tv, but every movie that is on is a thriller... eek... no thank you, not for this chick!!
Good night, sweet dreams............. :)
