Just a quick post to show what I ate today! 🙂
I was pretty hungry this morning and my tummy was growling at me by 8:30. That is pretty early for me as I normally have my first meal around 10. But last night was leg night and I am ALWAYS more hungry the day after.
I generally stay away from meal / protein bars but I do have a small stash in my desk in case of emergencies. And I didn’t feel like eating my “real” breakfast so early in the day as I knew I was not going to be able to grab lunch until 2PM today.
So I enjoyed this Zone bar with my coffee this morning while checking emails.
Around 10:30 I enjoyed my actual breakfast that I brought to the office with me.
3 egg whites scrambled with a little coconut oil and spinach and fresh baby tomatoes. I make my eggs in the morning before work and then keep them in the fridge until I am ready to eat them. I actually prefer my eggs cold vs. hot!
I also had some oatmeal with chia seeds, cinnamon, stevia and natural peanut butter.
I was going to take my lunch at 2 after my meetings but I was pretty satisfied still from my two breakfasts; so I opted to stay at work and eat when I got home around 4:30. I will say by the time I got home I was pretty hungry and the ONLY thing that sounded good was a big salad!
This salad had a ton of chopped baby spinach, green cabbage, red onion, shredded carrots, a few kalamata olives, a sprinkle of fresh parm and ceasar dressing. I also had a side of flatbread crisps.
And to curb my sweet tooth, I had 3 dates.
Little man had a super-short, but super-cute recorder concert at his school – he had so much fun! And it was so fun to watch him and all his friends play instruments!

Question: What is your favorite “healthy” sweet treat? I love dates and dark chocolate!
