I hit the treadmill at 5 AM and then made my way into work. My new schedule seems to really suit me! Once at work, I had a bagel with all natural PB
and this beautiful pear. I hadn’t had regular natural PB in a long time because of all the different nut butters I have been eating and I have to say, there is still something special about it!
For lunch I had some roasted edamame chowder from the freezer and a peach chobani.
This lunch was amazingly filling and I didn’t feel like a snack until it was almost time to leave work. I knew dinner was right around the corner so I just had this little baby apple.
Once home, I made a dinner that I had been very eager about, Bourbon Street Chicken. The recipe I used called for chicken pieces but we didn’t have any so I used ground chicken instead. We are really trying to eat down our freezer so I have really been trying to focusing on using what we have instead of buying more. Our goal is to not buy anymore meat until we have eaten everything in our deep freezer. I served the chicken with leftover barley and kale chips. Though I over salted the “chips”, I must say that I really liked them so look for more of these in the future.
For dessert, the dear husband and I shared some dark chocolate mousse. After the photo was taken, I added a little whipped cream 🙂 Instead of waiting a couple of hours for dessert, we ate it right after to round out the meal instead of making dessert an additional meal. I think this method will help me stop eating after dinner when in most cases, I am not actually hungry.
Thought Provoker: Do you see dessert as “bad” or just as one of life’s simple pleasures? For me, telling my self no dessert is just opening myself up for binging.
