So, with the holiday season here I spend considerably less time at my place. I’m at my parents’ place for many days here and there… so, I’ve decided to save some coin and eat up things I have here (with the exception of buying some fruit). This way, I can buy all of the needed baking ingredients without it being an added expense!
Meals have consisted of a lot of rice, beans and corn!!!
Breakfast yesterday was an oatmeal pancake with oats, egg whites, pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and some stevia… with a tbsp of real maple syrup on top
Dinner (which was taken to job #2 yesterday) was brown rice, tomato, black beans & corn
Before I count points with you… here’s today’s food photos. We have lunch:
Does it look at all familiar? Here’s a closer look:
Yep… same as yesterday pretty much!
Dinner (at work) was a taco salad
You can’t see what’s in it… but it’s romaine, red onion, black beans, corn, light cheddar, edamame… and AVOCADO. I have decided avocado is my favourite addition to taco salad (ahead of chicken or Yves Mexican veggie ground round). I added salsa tonight at work. It was so freakin’ good. You know my test of a most delicious meal? When I take the last bite… I get SAD!! I don’t want it to end!!!
So, here’s the points for today (because I’ve been neglectful wit tracking and writing points on here. That is changing as of TODAY… holidays are here and there’s no room for slacking).
Breakfast: 2pc weight watcher toast (1), 30g light cheddar (2), granny smith apple (1)
Lunch: 1c brown rice (4), salsa (0), black beans and corn (1)
Snack: another granny smith (1)
Dinner: salad with avocado (2), 30g light cheddar (2), black beans and corn (0), edamame (1), red onion (0) and a PB&J Larabar (5), candy cane (1)
I wish I could say I jogged today. I had every intention of it but with working all weekend I used my morning to start cleaning and organizing… and no jog. I am a wee bit lazy lately. This will change! Today was an ‘off’ day though because my grandpa’s barn burned down in the night. It’s one of those big old wooden barns with hay up in the top level…. it’s been a difficult year for him. I feel bad for him. BUT, he is definitely the strongest person I know, so he will survive!!!
Good news… tomorrow is the last day of work (at job #1 at least) until January 4th!!! It’s my last day of work period until New Years Eve. I can’t wait!
One more thing… for my faithful reader who asked… I got the stash tea at a health food store near me, but I know they sell Stash teas at Bulk Barn… perhaps check out the one at the mall and maybe they’ll have it. If not… we will go get some when you come visit me!!!
