I woke up too late to face the treadmill yesterday morning, the meds my doc has me on is causing some sleeping issues 😦 Instead, I headed to work with my chocolate cafe au lait in tow only to find that I would be there alone. It was kind of creepy actually. I work in the clubhouse which is 24,000 square feet of dark wood paneled space. Though I do get to work early, I am never the only one there and I must say, it is pretty freaky with no lights on. I’m glad it isn’t a daily occurrence! Once all the lights were on and I was settled in, I had my breakfast. A bowl of shredded wheat with cinnamon and almonds topped with milk. I really wanted oatmeal but failed to make any on Sunday.
I was on my own for lunch so I decided to take advantage of it and head to the Whole Foods salad bar. I made a salad with mixed greens, a couple different bean and grain salads, two vegan dumplings and a hard boiled egg. This was my first time at the WF salad bar and honestly, I was disappointed. I had it geared up in my mind to be the mecca of salad bars when really, it was all very bland tasting. I wonder if they skip the salt?
I ended up not eating most of my lunch and munched on a bag of popcorn to get my flavor fix.
Just before it was time to go, I had some homemade greek yogurt with thawed frozen raspberries and a honey drizzle. O.M.G. It was so good! I can’t wait to eat it again!!
Dinner was a simple meal. I grilled a cajun spiced pork chop and served it with whole wheat couscous and green beans. It was really good and only took a few minutes to prepare, I love fast meals like that!
Thought Provoker: Is there a food that you have so worked up in your mind that you were disappointed when you actually ate it?

I started out the day yesterday with a chocolate cafe au lait followed by breakfast once the dear husband woke up. I made wafflewiches with whole wheat waffles topped scrambled eggs and egg whites. I also had a tangerine on the side. I must say, this breakfast was v. disappointing. It wasn’t filling and the waffles were not that great. I have never been a fan of frozen waffles but I see them so much in blog land that I thought I would give them a try again. Now I remember why I don’t like them.
After all of our housework was done, we had lunch. I had falafel on whole wheat pita with a yogurt sauce that I made with cilantro, garlic and greek yogurt. I also had half of a small apple while I prepared it all. The falafel came from costco and for falafel that I didn’t have to make myself, it is really good!
After lunch, the glutton fest began. We watched about of the second season of Grey’s Anatomy and didn’t really do much else. I didn’t even stalk blogs (which I am VERY behind on reading/commenting) or my email all day! Needless to say, this show is a bit addicting. About mid afternoon, I did make us a batch of popcorn to tide us over until dinner. I made it in the air popper with canola oil and salt. There is no picture because…well…I was too lazy, I know, bad blogger!
For dinner, I made chicken and potatoes in the crockpot. It didn’t turn out that well and it all fell apart. It was actually pretty unappetizing so I didn’t photograph it and I barely ate any of it. I guess some things are good in theory but a whole chicken in the crockpot is not one of them. For dessert, I had a bowl of cocoa pebbles with milk. Even after all of this, I felt very unsatisfied with my food choices for the day. I sat there in stewed in it and made the decision that eating something else probably wouldn’t cure it so I just went to bed.
Thought Provoker: Do you have days that feel very unsatisfying food wise? What do you do to solve this problem?
