For breakfast:
Bagel thins with almond butter and raspberry preserves. I also had some apple slices.

For Lunch:
For lunch I had a tortilla topped with the last bit of chicken I had, some cheese, romaine lettuce, cilantro, tomatoes, and chipotle salsa. I also had steamed edamame with chili garlic sauce. This meal was so filling and spicy!

For an afternoon snack/beverage:
Since I loved how my iced coffee turned out the other day I decided to make another one. As you can tell I made way too much and yes I finished it all.

For dinner:
So I completely forgot to take a picture of my smoothie for dinner but here is a picture of my fiance’s. His smoothie has kale, mango, some walnuts, and water. My smoothie had kale, raspberries, banana, and some walnuts. My fiance also had nachos (we are talking about a huge plate of nachos!) and cajeta empanadas (caramel stuffed empanadas, the last picture on this post fyi. it is a Mexican dessert). So I only had a few nacho pieces and I also had a string cheese. This was the most random dinner and not a very good one I may add. Next time I need to have a better meal for dinner because later I munched on…

This! Another bagel thin but with chocolate peanut butter.

For dessert:
Umm an empanada… I guess the bagel with chocolate peanut butter wasn’t dessert?? 😉

Food Diary Entry #3 (for Wed, 11/07/2012)

In the morning:
Cup of coffee with 2 packets of sugar in the raw and some water. I also had a small pear because it looked good in the fruit basket.

For a midmorning snack:
A small apple and banana. I was actually starving but since Cas was sleeping upstairs (on my bed :/ ), I really couldn’t make something to eat so instead I grabbed some fruit to help with the roaring stomach I had.

For lunch:
Spinach, whole grain pasta, garlic, parsley, and butter (I ran out of olive oil, so I used butter instead. I don’t really mind since we almost never run out of our small tub of butter. We just don’t use it that often since we prefer olive oil.) This is probably one of my favorite meals and it always keeps me really full.

For dinner:
So I had about 2 tbsp of wild rice, sweet potato, and apple with honey and cinnamon. Which I hated! So I stopped eating it and made a tuna salad instead. The tuna salad consisted of; half of chunk light tuna, 1 1/2 tbsp of light mayonnaise (too much for my taste), 1/2 tsp of pepper, 3 tbsp of chopped spinach, and 1 hard boiled egg including the yolk. I’m sure I could have done without the mayonnaise since I don’t really care for it but for some reason I can only have tuna salad if it has mayo. It must remind me of the way my mom makes tuna salad, which includes lots of mayonnaise.

Not the prettiest picture but when does tuna ever look pretty?

Later I sipped on..
Some Hibiscus tea with a tsp of honey and a dash of cinnamon. This has to be my favorite tea at the moment. (The Tea I used today was Raspberry Zinger Herbal Tea by Celestial Seasonings) I also had another small apple after my late workout.

I am okay with what I ate today. If I had all the ingredients to make a sweet potato and wild rice soup I would be a lot happier but the tuna salad came out good and very filling.

Food Diary Entry #2 (for Tues, 11/06/2012)

In the morning:
Cup of coffee with 2 packets of sugar in the raw. 30 oz of water.

For Lunch:
Black beans, spinach, and mild cheddar shredded cheese with balsamic dressing. (Not very creative here but I did not have a lot of time to eat since it was cutting close for Cas’s lunch as well.)

Snacked on…
A small red delicious apple.

For dinner:
Grilled lemon pepper chicken with sweet potato, sweet peas, and wild rice. I made dinner kind of early today (for me anyways) since I got pretty hungry by 4 o’clock.

For dessert:
A strawberry yogurt parfait!! I have been obsessed with this dessert/snack since forever!

Later I snacked on:
3 Turkey, cheese, pickle roll ups. Not my favorite thing to eat but my fiance was eating his dinner pretty late and I got a little hungry. Instead of serving myself another plate of food I tried a few of these roll-ups to see if they would fill me up, and they did. (It was very high in sodium, so I don’t think I will do this snack again.)

Throughout the whole day I kept drinking water before, during, after meals. Its my favorite beverage and it has always been since I was little.

Overall, I think that I did very good today. I’m proud of myself, 🙂

Grocery Haul from HEB Market

4 jugs of water, granola, baby mum-mums, baby puffs in the apple flavor, baby oatmeal cereal, stonyfield 32 oz vanilla yogurt, yobaby yogurt in the vanilla flavor, sweet potato, green beans, sweet peas, baby spinach, kale, cantaloupe, bananas, pears, apples, strawberries, and chicken.

So here is another post about my grocery shopping trip. This time I went to H-E-B Market; which I believe are only in Texas but I could be wrong. This H-E-B in particular carries organic items and non organic items. Which I absolutely love! I’m hoping I will use up all these groceries and i would like to post all the meals I make. This way I can keep track of what I actually use and what I should quit buying.

On a side note: I will also be including groceries I already have.

Today’s post will be a short one for now.
