This morning I was so busy trying to get my run in and eat and blog that I barely made it to my hair appointment. I still don’t know if I hit “post” this morning or not. When I got home it was under edit? Anyway, I am enjoying posting my daily food intake, but it is time-consuming! I do like the accountability though. It is much more visual than my written journal and I am a visual kind of person so I plan to keep it up.
After my cut, I went shopping for more birthday stuff for my little girl. We are all set now! I found myself very, very hungry again without food…or was I? I found a half of a box of raisins in the car! Yay! (no picture, I brought the camera, but no SD card. It’s probably an old box that my daughter discarded and I am not going to think about that.) This helped me get home so I could make a proper lunch.
I had another sprouted bread sandwich with spinach, sliced chicken, Munster, and sliced tomatoes! It was so good. Along with that I had some humus, carrots and cauliflower, three walnut-stuffed dates, and a hand full of these quinoa GF crackers or chips or whatever they are. They are good I know that!
I also tried this coconut water. I don’t think I like this brand too well. It’s the first one that I have tried, so I don’t want to say that I don’t like coconut water yet. It was slightly sweet, slightly coconutty, and I was disappointed when I read the label that said it was pure coconut water and other natural flavors. Natural flavors irritate me. What are they?
For dinner I am making roasted squash with walnuts (usually maple glazed walnuts but I am running out of time), and Hoisin glazed salmon (super easy and tastes great). Later tonight I might eat a garden salad to round it out.
Hoisin Glaze (originally found from the book: Fish Without A Doubt)
- 2 TBLSP Hoisin sauce
- 1/2 lime juiced
- 1 tsp honey
- 1-2 small cloves of garlic
- salt to taste
- 1 TBLSP fresh cillantro (I omit)
Combine it all and brush it on as soon as fish is cooked. It is so fantastic. My husband will actually eat salmon if I put this on it! He does not like fish too well.
It’s our last day of dance for the summer. I will miss my daughters instructor. She was actually one of my 10th grade science students back when I did my student teaching…wow, eight years ago! It was so good to see her again!
Later tonight I will probably have another protein smoothie as well. I think I keep forgetting to tell you that I put this in it too!
I’ll admit it tastes a bit, well allot “swampy” but it has so much “good” stuff in it that I can handle it in small doses. 🙂
Have a great night!
