The mornings are just so brutal for me these days. Despite going to bed at 8:30, I struggled to get up by 6. I had planned to wake up and do a 45 minute vinyasa flow but my body just wouldn’t do it. Instead, I started the day with a nice bowl of live active cereal topped with a not quite ripe peach and hazelnut milk. Though the peach wasn’t “there” yet, it was still tasty and mixed well with the hazelnut milk.
Work was wacko. There aren’t really any other words to describe it, just plain wacko. By lunch time, I was knee deep in IT issues and hadn’t even begun my daily paperwork. For lunch, the chef made me a salad with scallops, green peppers, salad greens and a lovely dressing that I could only peg as something with cilantro. On the side, I grabbed a slice of garlic toast from the staff lunch. It was tasty but brought back memories of the time I ate scallops and landed in the hospital and had my gall bladder removed in emergency surgery. Good Times.
After lunch, I had a couple of unphotographed pieces of dark chocolate to ease my stress. I know that food isn’t the right solution but it was the choice I made at the time. Around 3, my stomach was growling so I had some fage topped with honey.
When I got home from work, I made a pantry and fridge dinner. I felt inspired by the black eyed peas and the chicken sausages but didn’t have any canned tomatoes to round out an impromptu hoppin john so I improvised and used salsa! The flavor combo was interesting to say the least. I served it on top of brown rice with some green beans on the side. I had planned to make a salad but I just wasn’t feeling it. In fact, I don’t think I was feeling dinner at all because I ended up taking about six bites and calling it done. At least the dear husband enjoyed it.
After dinner, we polished off the last of our farmer’s market treats, Brownie # 2. It was just as divine as the first time. Now I have a hankering to make my own brownies that don’t come in a box 🙂
As a little side note, I want to thank Megan for giving me my first blog award. Sorry for taking so long to post about it, I have just been insane in my own little world. I give the award to all of the wonderful bloggers who take the time to read and comment on my blog. It means so much to me to part of such a supportive comminity.
QOTD: Do you ever just not feel like eating? This is a rare feeling for me.
