good intentions . . .

I started the day well and healthy, and then I didn't eat the lunch that I had packed. Alas. Sometimes good intentions are all one has going, eh?

BREAKFAST:
black coffee, my multivitamin, and
example
Breakfast couscous! I haven't made this in a LONG time. Contains: whole-wheat couscous, almond milk, dash of cinnamon, squirt of agave, sliced almonds, raisins, craisins, dried apricots, and flax. Easy and tasty!

LUNCH:
Mac and cheese with the kids, and my spinach, cucumber, and tomato salad that I had brought from home. Also, two raspberry Milano cookies.

3:00 SNACK:
A peach, and later, a pear and another Milano cookie.

DINNER:
example
Tempeh tarragon salad (from the co-op deli case,) and red grapes.

BEDTIME SNACK:
A few crumbly nibbles of the evening's baking project. More on that tomorrow!

breakfast couscous? Good idea! and that salad from the co-op looks so creamy and delicious, too.
