I got an email today from a reader who said it was National Bagel Day (Thanks, Kim!). I must have intuitively known because I already had one 😀
If you are reading this on Thursday, go ahead and have a bagel – doesn’t matter if it is a day late!
John was up pretty early. He isn’t playing poker so much, so now his sleep schedule is more like mine. We headed out to eat before exercising. Off to Orange Cat so I could have a bagel. John is trying to go wheat free, so we went there because they have gluten free bread.
My blueberry bagel with cream cheese:
My coffee selection.
So much better than Panera Bread! Work was slow when I got home, so I hopped on the trainer and rode for a while and finished up the Taubes book while on there. I think I will do a review on it. There is a lot to digest if you pardon the pun.
I was hungry for a morning snack, so I finished of the blueberries:
I thought we might go out for dinner, so I had a veggie at lunch just in case. John won the last football picks of the year and he was making noises about want me to pay up. So, I had the 1-minute pumpkin muffin (minus sugar) topped with the peanut flour. Plus brussels sauteed in coconut oil.
I know this looks sweet, but it really isn’t. Although it certainly could be.
I made some coconut butter this afternoon, which I will do a recipe post on soon. It’s just blended coconut.
This is good stuff. One of those things where it is definitely worth it to make because it is really $$ to buy in the store (if you can even find it). I had a spoonful of this straight up because it was so good 😯
Then it was time for lattes. I had one with almond milk and protein powder today. With cinnamon on top.
Not that enamored of the almond milk for lattes, I have to say. Dairy won’t be leaving my life any time soon.
John decided that he was going to save his meal out for another day (after his gluten free experiment is over). So, I had my backup plan ready:
Answering a question here. I do eat more with a dinner salad than a lunch salad. This one has 4 oz of chicken and 1 ounce of feta, plus a tbsp of sliced almonds. For lunch, I usually have 3 oz of chicken and 1/2 oz of feta. Lunch is usually my smallest meal of the day.
I will probably have some fruit and cheese for a snack later, but it is back to work I go.
Bagel on, my friends!
