I was able to wake up a little later then normal this Tuesday morning, so I took advantage of it with an easy breezy 2 mile walk and a bowl of hot apple spice oats. Same as yesterday’s concoction…wheatberries were of course included! I’m loving these things more and more every day! 😀
Once back, showered, and ready to go, I threw a green monster mix into the blender for a snack-to-go!
- 1 banana
- 2 c. spinach
- 1 c. milk
It was frothy, creamy, and satisfying! I love smoothies while driving, because I can make them last the entire way. 😀
This will probably be my last packed lunch for the semester! 😀 I ate this packed hummus and avocado sandwich and cheesestick in the library while studying for tomorrow’s biochemistry exam. After 1-1/2 hrs. of studying, I couldn’t sit down much longer! A quick stroll around campus in the cold, refreshing air did wonders for energizing me! 😀
I also brought along some packed snacks which included:
- handful of almonds
- red anjou pear
- orange slices
…I ate them sporatically throughout the day, about every 3 hrs. or so. It’s the secret to staying well-fueled…and awake during some long lectures. 😉
I didn’t realize how white my meal was becoming until I actually plated it…haha! While not exactly aesthetically pleasing (where’s the green, please?) it hit the spot perfectly. There was brown rice, steamed cauliflower & carrots, with baked cod on the side. It’s the usual recipe that I enjoy using for haddock/cod style fish:
- Sautee 1 sliced onion in 1 T. butter.
- Place 1 lb. cod/haddock in a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Layer sliced lemons on top along with sauteed onions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 325.
That’s it! So simple, but very flavorful. 😀 Feel free to add some much needed parsley for color. 😉
+ a blueberry parfait for dessert. 😀
- 6-oz. plain yogurt
- 1/2 c. frozen blueberries, microwaved for 20 sec.
- 2 T. pumpkin flax granola
+ a night time snack of honey nut cheerios and a little bit of LIFE! 😀
Sorry for such a short post! I’m swamped with business this week, due to exams, papers, and finals! It’s pretty much insane! But at least now I can relax for a while with a cup of tea and the Biggest Loser Finale.
Anyone else watching it? 😀
