According to foodimentary it is National Peanut Butter Lover’s day!  I recommend celebrating with at least a glob or two today.  🙂

Oatmeal anyone?

How will you celebrate?

Well I did not have breakfast before my workout like normal but  don’t worry, I made up for it!

My chocolate oatmeal was back with PB, frozen banana, and peanuts!  I still felt hungry and had a small chunk of my GF Zucchini Bread!  I like it more and more each time I eat it!

I had it with a tall glass of ice-cold milk!  (It really is ice-cold due to my crazy fridge.)

I feel full at least for now.  We are off to grandma and grandpa’s for a little visit.  I am not sure what eats I will find for the rest of the day.  For dinner it probably will be left over taco stuff since I have my work cut out for me tonight.

Tomorrow is an annual barbecue we go to.  Every year I am asked to make the potato salad.  I am not kidding, I make 15+ pounds of this stuff and I never leave with any to take home!  They can’t get enough!  It’s a lot of work but it’s only once a year and I like that it is a favorite!

So, I need to go buy 10 lbs of potatoes, a dozen eggs….the list goes on, I have shopping to do!

I hope you all have a great afternoon!

Talk soon!

Good Afternoon!

I hope everyone had a good morning.  Mine started out great!  Sundays are my rest days from exercise.  I absolutely love lazy Sundays!

I had my morning hot coffee and waited for my family to get up.  My husband actually had the day off!  This is very rare!  He got promoted two times at work this spring (yay!) and now we don’t see him too often (boo!).

We went out to breakfast.  There is a coney we like near our home.  They make the best breakfasts.  Lately the veggie omelette (without cheese) has been my favorite as of late.  It is so good!  With some places you go to, you can taste and feel the grease in your mouth (yuck!) but not here!

It is huge!  I ate probably 2/3 of the omelet and maybe 1/3 of the hash browns.  I usually just pick at the crunchy parts of the potatoes.

I am so happy, I actually busted out my camera to take a picture of my food in a restaurant!  I always feel like a big weirdo, today I decided to do it!  I did steal half of a piece of dry wheat toast from my husband and put some grape jelly on it (yum!), but was too chicken take out the camera a second time and take a picture of it.  I’ll get there!  🙂

Afterward, we went shopping!  Not long into it my husband got a call that he needed to come into work! We at least had a nice breakfast with him!  So we came home and I cleaned up the house some and was getting hungry.

I was not feeling like a traditional lunch and PB and carrots sounded good, so I had a plate of veggies and some PB!

That was good!  Now I think we will go for a small walk with the dogs and then come back and stretch.  I like to really stretch out on Sunday!

I hope you are having a great afternoon!

We will see what other eats the day will bring!

Talk to you later!

I finished my circuit workout, took a shower, and got dressed and ready to head out the door, but I felt a little shaky so I decided I needed to eat first.

Something sweet was what I was in the mood for, so I snacked on a serving of Peanut Butter Puffins while I thought about what to make for lunch.

They were good, and it made me want some more peanut butter.  With a few ingredients I threw together this:

The flavors melded perfectly!  I layered on the following:

  • Sprouted bun (toasted)
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned Pumpkin (straight out of the can)
  • Honey (a drizzle)
  • Pumpkin seeds (a sprinkling)

So far I have managed to have a meatless day.  Maybe I will continue on the rest of the day?  We’ll see.

Have a good afternoon!
