We had a big day planned yesterday so I started us off with a bowl of oats. I cooked them in half soymilk, half water, mashed banana and a dash of salt. Once they were cooked, I topped my portion with homemade trail mix and almond butter. I’m not sure why but they were very filling and I was only able to eat about 2/3 of my small portion.
After breakfast, we met our friends Sarah and Francis at Starbucks. I chose a pumpkin spice latte made with soymilk. I’m not sure what everyone else got but I thought this shot would be fun.
With out Starbucks in hand, we piled into my car and headed to Trader Joe’s. It had just opened Friday and I had been so excited to go! While there, I loaded up on all sorts of goodies. I was amazed at some of the prices, goat cheese in particular stands out because it was $2.00 less per roll than our regular grocery store. I also stocked up on the TJ’s brand of greek yogurt, look for a review on that later in the week.
After TJ’s, we went to Whole Foods and once again loaded up on all sorts of good thing. While shopping, the dear husband and I tried a piece of apple cake. It was very tasty, it tasted like fall.
After our grocery store adventures, we went to Bertucci for lunch. We started off with the bread and olive oil. To. Die. For. I really paid attention to my hunger and stopped at one though because I wanted to enjoy lunch as well.
For lunch, the dear husband and I shared the portifino pizza. It had goat cheese, spinach and tomatoes. The crust was absolutely without a doubt the best thin crust I have ever had. This will be on our list of places to go again!
After lunch, we all browsed around the shops and then headed to Maggie Moo’s for a little ice cream. After my ice cream debacle on Friday night, I made a vow to only eat good quality ice cream and this fit the bill. I got a Better Batter with sprinkles, brownies and fudge. It had a witty little name but I can’t for the life of me remember it now. Maybe Sarah will chime in on the comments and remind me. This was a delightful little cup of ice cream.
After ice cream, we headed back to our side of the world, dropped them off and headed home. Once home, it took up forever to unload all of our loot. Once it was all put away, I started on dinner. I made a roasted vegetable soup with all of the veggie goodness I got from Whole Foods. I started by roasting peppers, onions, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and butter nut squash in olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Once the veggies were roasted, I combined them with veggie broth, oregano, a large can of fire roasted tomatoes and a little more mashed garlic.
Once it was dinner time, I made a small bowl of soup topped with paremsan cheese.
And the dear husband and I shared this little bowl of toasted mini whole wheat pitas (my new favorite food).
For some reason, while eating, I felt really turned off by food and didn’t finish my bowl. I’m not real sure what was going on with me but eating just didn’t feel right. I ate maybe half of my soup and two of the mini pitas.
To relax a little, I downloaded the Sex and the City movie onto my iPod and watched it on the tv in the living room. I am sure the dear husband was a little reluctant but I think he was more interested in playing with Caddie anyway, who by the way is doing very well and becoming a best friend to my Georgy kitty. Anyway, I love this movie, Sarah and I had gone to see it the day it was released in the theater with T and her best friend. It was just as good this time, I cried at all the crying parts and laughed at all the laughing parts.
By the time the movie was over, my stomach was feeling ready to eat and it really wanted PB. I had a few unphotographed mini pitas with white chocolate dreams PB along with some red grapes. I only ate a couple because once again, I felt turned off by food. It was like this weird feeling in my stomach that I have just never felt before. So, I went to bed.
