I started my day with Ezekiel toast + hummus.

Lunch was a work one.  We went to Chili’s, and I had my usual:  black bean burger patty, salsa, broccoli.

Then I had a little slice of Publix cake at work–whoops!  Then I had some chips and spinach dip at a work happy hour. Ugh–didn’t need those.

Fiiiinally I took a picture!


So I stopped by EarthFare (health food supermarket) on the way home to hit up their hot bar.  Unfortunately, the options were “ehh”, but I didn’t feel like going anywhere else.  On the upside, I tried brussel sprouts for the first time in my life, and I enjoyed the taste!  The thai tofu (top left) was not great, so I didn’t finish it, but the soy chick’n and mushroom (top right) was spot on, and of course, you can’t mess up green bean casserole–delish.

Last, I actually switched up my “healthy dessert” tonight!  Don’t get too excited, it’s not that big of a change.  All I did was take out the almond butter from my evening overnight oatmeal and subbed in a spoonful from this gem:


Ok so maybe one spoonful was a little tooooo much choclately flavor, if you can believe it.  Next time I’ll add just under a tablespoon.


The end result was still a yummy mix of chocolate and banana oatmeal.  Definitely a satisfying, healthy dessert that I will add into the mix!
