no fruit today?

BREAKFAST:
No picture, sorry. But I had coffee at home, and a bowl of (homemade) granola with soy milk at work. Then I took my vitamin, too. Having an early chiropractor appointment tends to throw things off a little bit!

LUNCH:
example
Beans and brown rice with shredded pepper-jack, and a side salad. I also had a piece of organic vanilla-caramel hard candy.

SNACK:
No picture again! But I snuck into the kitchen this afternoon and had a piece of coconut cake. Dense, moist cake, cream cheese frosting, all topped with coconut. It was delicious . . . and totally worth it!

DINNER:
I came home and did yoga right away tonight, which pushed dinner back a little farther than it probably should have been pushed. I was craving carbs and salt by the time I started cooking, so I did my best:
example
A whole-wheat English muffin with Earth Balance. Not pictured: slice of mozzarella cheese.
And . . .
example
Totally inauthentic, but still very tasty, dumpling soup. I threw some veggie broth, tamari, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, frozen spinach, and "fiesta blend" edamame into a pan, and brought the lot to a boil. I then tossed in six (homemade) frozen dumplings, let them cook, and then started slurping. Definitely satisfied the salt craving!

TREAT:
example
More pudding.

EXERCISE:
25 minutes of yoga, plus my usual chasing around of small children.

Hmm . . . no fruit today. Weird. Must be the bitter cold temps, making me want to pack in the carbs??

I'm sure it's the cold! All I want is bread and tea. I'm freezing!

I crave carbs too when it's freezing! Hang in there and bundle up!
