1st day madness!

Today was my first day of teaching on the new job–it was crazy busy! ¬†But, I still managed to eat. ūüėČ

I started with a protein shake (unpictured), then a healthy garden salad (unpictured), and some carrots and guacamole (unpictured).

Then I actually had a breather and got some celebratory dessert when I got home!





It’s an ANZAC cookie/biscuit from my fave local vegan bakery (The Drunken Monkey)

Dinner was a mix of lettuce, black bean burger patty, salsa, and grape tomatoes.  Yum!




Later I snacked on some lightly salted Snapea Crisps that were pretty tasty, too!

Food i 8 today:

Today I woke up, did some work, then headed out to our fave Orlando BBQ joint (4 Rivers Smokehouse) for lunch with the hubs!


I went with my usual–a side of fire roasted corn and a side of bread pudding. ¬†SO DARN GOOD! ¬†I ate only half at the restaurant since we ate around 11am, and I wasn’t particularly hungry yet. ¬†I ate the other half later in the afternoon.

On the way home from lunch, I stopped by my favorite Orlando spot for vegan and gluten-free desserts–Drunken Monkey. ¬†I’ve been addicted to their Anzac biscuits for a while, but I decided I wanted to switch it up and try something new. ¬†I could NOT decide on just one item, so naturally I went with three.


(1) a vegan and gluten-free chocolate chip cookie bar, (2) a small gluten-free double chocolate cookie, and (3) a small gluten-free chocolate chip cookie.

After I ate the rest of my BBQ sides this afternoon, I decided to do a little taste test and commit myself to NOT polishing off all three, especially if they didn’t taste good. ¬†The result: ¬†the cookies were not so great, so I trashed both of them. ¬†The cookie bar was delish, so I saved the rest for my after-dinner snack. ¬†Perfecto!

Dinner was a Chipotle salad.


I really didn’t need to eat all of this, but I did! ¬†My belly is FULL and happy now!
