I first want to give a shout out to Krista over at Krista’s Kravings for giving me a blog award! I really appreciate it and the fact that I won the award alongside Kath and Jenna really made me blush! Both Kath and Jenna were my inspiration for starting my blog and I will always see them the queens of food blogging! So, onto passing the torch!
I award Erin and Andrea at Care to eat because these girls, truly, just rock. I love how both of them aren’t trying to be anything but themselves. They are both funny, charming and have a great way with words.
Next up is Mi at Whole Foods for Whole Me . Can I just say that I lurve this little chick-a-di? She tells great stories and her food is always gorgeous! She makes me want to pinch her cheeks and, by george, if I am even in London, I plan to stalk her so I can!
And last but not least, Gina at Fitnessista. I love how devoted to her health, her pilot and her pups she is. She is so passionate about her life even though she is stuck in a boring town.
You girls rock! I hope you will pass the excellence award onto more wonderful blogs!
Now onto the food!
I woke up feeling like my normal self, yesterday. I slept for 11 hours and was loaded up with vitamin C. I started out with a bowl of shredded wheat with milk, banana, walnuts, cinnamon and a smidge of nutmeg. On the side, I also had a small glass of concord grape juic. Between the juice and the cereal. I wasn’t able to eat it all so I thought that my appetite wasn’t quite back yet.
I was wrong. Really really wrong. Around 9:30, my stomach started to grumble. I made peanut butter and agave on local nice grain bread.
Then, an hour later, my stomach was growling again! I decided to peek downstairs at the staff lunch and decided to go for it. It was burgers and for some reason, that sounded like just what I needed. I made mine with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and mayo. It was really good and it WAS just what I needed.
For a mini lunch dessert, I had a TJ’s chocolate merainge. Had I known I was going to like these so much, I would have bought many more of them. I will be sad to see the package go which will probably be soon because the dear husband likes them too.
Just before it was time to go, I had a little snack that The pro brought in, homemade banana bread! A friend of his made it and brought it out to the club to share. It was a tiny little piece but it was oh so good!
After work, the dear husband and I met at Uno Chicago Bar and Grill for dinner. This place is kind of known to me as the pig out place so we rarely go. We started with the shrimp and crab fondue, I had a couple of these little guys.
For the main entree we ordered a deep dish pizza with sausage, pepperoni and pesto. I ate about one and a half slices and stopped when I felt comfortably full. For some reason, the pizza tasted extra greasy to me and it wasn’t settling in the back of my throat very well. This made it really easy to not over indulge.
Such a savory dinner led to a big time sweet tooth. We stopped by Panera on the way home to pick up my favorite cookies, the triple chocolate chocolate chip. Once we were home and settled, I made sundaes with the cookies and ice cream. Once again, I didn’t eat very much because it just wasn’t what my taste buds had imagined.
Thought Provoker: Do you consider yourself a dieter or an intuitive eater? I consider myself an intuitive eater but sometimes I end up listening to my heads signals instead of my bodies signals. I generally listen to my body when it comes to the time to eat but not always WHAT to eat.
