Then there was my pre-lunch snack. Preparing my stomach for lunch which really just means I couldn't wait another hour to eat. I had a few corn chips with a lot of hummus. This cilantro jalapeno hummus flavor is my new favorite. You're probably wondering at this point how I get any work done with all this eating.
I was actually "full" from my morning snacking so I decided to go on a walk on lunch. A nice 20 minute stroll felt really nice. I got an odd cramp in my right side about halfway through my walk so I decided to take a breather at Starbucks. I didn't order anything, but just sat and relaxed for a few minutes and then finished up my walk.
When I got back to the office, it was officially lunch time for me. Lunch consisted of this quinoa salad. What a great recipe! I made it Tuesday night and it tasted even better after sitting in the refrigerator overnight. It's packed with goodness (carrots, black beans, green onion, and an awesome cumin lime dressing). I made this dish one other time and I plan to make it weekly for now on. I enjoyed it with another handful of corn chips.
By 4 o'clock I was in need of something. I should have brought more food to the office, so all I had was an ALT bar. It wasn't really what I was craving, but I ate half of it and it held me over until dinner.
When I got home from work, I started cooking my favorite dinner. Sesame tofu over brown rice with kale and sweet potato. My husband got home a little after me and together we finished the meal. I post this dish a lot, but it's because it's my favorite and it makes a weekly appearance for dinner.
Not long after dinner I finished the night with a gluten-free brownie and a few scoops of So Delicious coconut milk ice cream.
I'd say it was a happy day of eats. I found that eating frequently kept me feeling great all throughout the day. I will be keeping up a pattern like this.
What's the best thing you ate yesterday?
