Morning! I have to say, it is so nice to be able to wake up and relax while I enjoy my coffee and breakfast versus rushing off to work. Packing, on the other hand, is no fun. I can see why people pay other people to pack for them! I’m not sure how my Dad is going to fit everything into my car unless he has magic powers… we’ll see soon enough!
Breakfast was a fresh everything bagel with spinach and artichoke hummus. We can never get good bagels here in Manchester, so I picked some up while we were traveling this weekend and now I’m taking full advantage of delicious bagels for breakfast. If we didn’t have bagels right now, I’m not sure what I would do because we are out of chia seeds! Oh the horror! I can’t make my summer staple breakfast of overnight oats. I drove to three grocery stores yesterday, two didn’t have them and one simply had none in stock. I’ll probably be searching for them again today because I can’t forgo overnight oats for too long!
Since I’m no longer working, I was able to snack my way through the afternoon. First up was an Orange Creamsicle Spinach Smoothie (recipe here). Delicious, refreshing, and definitely a summer staple for me!
Later, I snacked on a Core Warrior Raw Almond Raisin Bar. I got a pack of these bars when I won a giveaway from Allie. This was the first one I tried and I wasn’t really a huge fan. It just wasn’t sweet enough for me and it had an odd texture. Maybe I’ll like the other flavors better, we’ll see!
A couple hours later, I was hungry again, so I munched on a juicy pluot. I always forget that I prefer plums to pluots – I just can’t resist buying pluots in the store due to their fun name :).
Dinner took longer to cook than I could wait, so I snacked on grapes while I waited impatiently.
The deliciousness of dinner made up for the wait! I cooked up my healthier version of Indian butter chicken (recipe here) and served it over quinoa. This is a recycled picture because I was too hungry to photograph! This was seriously tasty and I went back for seconds too.
And that’s a wrap for what I ate
Wednesday Tuesday! Be back tomorrow with an amazing new dessert creation! *Warning, it’s not very healthy!*
