I jetted on home all the while thinking of breakfast. I soaked some steel cut oats overnight and cooked up with egg whites whisked in. Then topped with a banana sauteed in butter and cinnamon with some of the chocolate coconut butter on top.
Glad you appreciated the review of the Taubes book. Reviewing books is really hard, I have to say, especially nonfiction! It’s a lot different than reviewing a product.
Today is a carbing up day, which you probably noticed from breakfast. I pulled out an old favorite for lunch! Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp flax meal, berries, and granola.
Jody had put up a post today on pretty much this same meal. Can I just say that I love this shot? I had planned this meal last night without the kiwi, but John must have had some strawberries after I planned my meals out as there were only 3 left. So, I added the kiwi, too. It’s all good.
We have had this granola in the house for a couple weeks now and this is the first I have had any of it. I just haven’t wanted it, so we shall see if this sets off any kind of craving for it. Eating more fat for me has really meant a lot less desire to be snacky on things like cereal and chocolate chips. Always helpful when you are losing mode, I have to say.
Speaking of chocolate… I brought out the other slab bar from my Pure Dark samples.
Big honking chunk of chocolate! I used a big knife to break off some pieces to have with my latte.
It was very good. Nice and dark, but I like the bark kind with the crunchlets of the cocoa nibs better.
Today was such a gorgeous day. Lots of snow melting and the sun was out. Pixie was enjoying some sun today.
I was able to play a little hooky this afternoon since I ran out of work.
Friday night quickie dinner. I forgot about the buffalo shrimp in the freezer!
This red pear was delicious as well. 3 cheers for fruit!
The weekend coming up! I have a job interview tomorrow (yes, on a Saturday!), which I hope goes well. It’s for a seasonal position, but something I would like to do. Wish me luck.
Now John and I are off for a Friday Night Coffee Date.
Have a good one!
