Goodness, it’s definitely Monday, right?
There’s nothing like starting the week off with a full inbox, a few emergencies, and a huge appetite that’s begging for lunch at 10:30.
Thankfully, I stayed busy enough to break for lunch at my normal time and it was totally worth it!
This is pretty much what we had for dinner last night, but after getting home, buying groceries, unpacking our bags, and actually eating…it was 9 pm and I was not about to turn my computer on ;)
Thankfully, I cut enough veggies last night to leave enough for my lunch today.
I had a HUGE salad:
- Local mixed greens
- carrots (who AM I?)
- hard boiled egg
- dressing made of olive oil, raspberry vinegar, s&p, and dijon
The salad was almost as good as the one we had last night, but that one included some of that amazing Amish Market Bacon. Yum.
But the star of my lunch was my yogurty-dessert!
I am rolling in the yogurt right now – I’m not sure how it happened, but I think it involves a few good finds with Nick’s mom this weekend. Let’s just say we have a huge container of Chobani, a huge container of Fage, and tons of Oikos, as well. I’ll be eating a lot of yogurt in the next 2 weeks, but I’m excited for it! It’s so hard to find them on sale, so I just figured I should stock up while I could.
My bowl today had one ingredient that I keep forgetting I have.
Have you ever used pecan meal? It’s just ground pecans, but I had the genius idea to add it to my yogurt today.
The entire bowl was:
- Plain Oikos
- 1 tsp ground flax
- 1 tsp pecan meal
- Saigon Cinnamon (the best)
And I just have to share my excitement for these strawberries.
Since we were out of town this weekend, I didn’t get the chance to go to the farmer’s market and buy my local loot.
But, we still needed groceries for the week, so I went to Food Lion last night and found these berries from North Carolina!!! Most of the berries I can get in stores here are always from California or Florida, so I was psyched to find somewhat-local berries :) And they’re awesome – you can see how red they are.
I’m hoping all these fruits, veggies, and good bacteria will help kick this head cold to the curb!
Since I have SO much yogurt taking over my fridge, what’s your favorite way to use / eat yogurt? Recipes, mix-in ideas? All suggestions welcome!
