So, last night I caved to my craving for eggnog. It is definitely my holiday must-have treat, but luckily, after a glass (or 3 or 6) during the first week of December I am GOOD for the rest of the year. Eggnog is one of those things that I can only handle a very small amount of, thankfully since it is certainly not light in the calorie/fat area...!
Breakfast: Bowl of oats...yay! So much more filling and satisfying than yesterday's (non-breakfast) cookie. This standard bowl featured
- 1 cup prepared rolled oats
- 1 mashed banana
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- sprinkling of pom seeds
I enjoyed my long weekend immensely, but I am excited to be back into my regular routine and healthy eats.
Lunch: I've felt like my lunches have been lacking in the protein department lately, so I decided to mash up some chickpeas this morning with a little extra virgin OO, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
I spread about 1/4 of the mashed chickpeas into a whole wheat pita, and filled it up with leftover roasted veggies. On the side, the last of the roasted veggies and mashed sweet potatoes. I just finished lunch, and am really full after just 1/2 the pita and all of the extra veggies/sweet potatoes. We'll see if I'm hungry for the other 1/2 a bit later...
Snack: My trusty Pink Lady apple. And maybe a piece of maple banana corn bread too... I brought about 1/2 the loaf into the office for my co-workers and it has been a BIG HIT so far, so we'll see if there is any left for me this afternoon...
I hope you all have a fabulous afternoon!
