Sunshine and Food
Yesterday it got up to 76 degrees. Such happiness! It was the first time I could walk around the city at lunch time. The streets were busy with lots of people, but the really busy place was Starbucks aka lunch break heaven. Wow does a sunny day make people go crazy for Frappuccino's, iced coffees, and my new favorite - refreshers!
I know the Starbucks refresher drinks have been out a while, but I've never tried them - always going for my coffee light Frappuccino with soy milk. Not yesterday! I had a few dollars on my Starbucks card and actually wasn't craving coffee (bizarre I know) so I tried the Cool Lime Refresher. Oh wow. Go try one. It was absolutely refreshing and they even dropped a few lime slices in it which was just icing on the cake.
Next topic - Anyone else having bad allergies? I've been sneezing like crazy, but not as bad yesterday, so that's good.
And the next topic - Do you like spinach in your shakes? I gave this a try yesterday morning because I had bought a big bag of spinach Sunday and hadn't yet touched it. I decided to throw a bunch in my breakfast shake...
1 cup spinach (basically a handful)
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp. peanut butter
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 scoop sunwarrior protein powder
5 ice cubes
It was really tasty and kept me full until just past 10 o'clock which is a while for me since I had it around 7 o'clock.
Yesterday was an odd food day. I had that shake in the morning and then I ate a bowl of seasoned rice and lentils at my desk around 10 0'clock which was strange because it felt way more like lunch food, but I was hungry, and it was quite delicious.
But then I wasn't really hungry again until 3 o'clock because that venti refresher kept me going for a while so at 3 o'clock I suddenly realized "wow I'm hungry!" and had two of my no bake cookies and an apple.
Oh and then there was dinner... As you know, one of my favorite dinners is sesame tofu! Got to use some more of that spinach up as well. Jax starred me down trying to get some. Let's just say I absolutely do not share this meal ;)
So that's my food day...no complaints here.
How was your food yesterday? Did you get to enjoy the sun?
