Lots of Vitamin A Today!

I just made my afternoon snack in the office: Fage with canned pumpkin, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and a 1/2 packet of Splenda. I was surprised that I was hungry for a snack much earlier than usual, but I held off for another 30 minutes before I mixed-up the Fage-pumpkin-Kashi combo. I'm waiting to eat it until after I finish posting-- just so I won't be famished when I arrive home tonight. I hate it when I am absolutely starving and walk into our apartment, and immediately start chowing-down. If I eat a snack late in the afternoon, it will usually hold off my hunger until dinnertime around 7:00.

Afternoon snack: Fage with pumpkin, Kashi, and Splenda, and a mug of peppermint tea (Tazo "Refresh").

Fage-pumpkin-Kashi mixture...

Today's lunch was a ham and swiss sandwich with baby carrots. I also had a piece of those pastries from last week-- there were still a couple in the office fridge. Lucky me!

Here's my piece of pastry up close... fudgy-chocolate with walnuts on top of a raspberry filling and a shortbread cookie-like bottom. Yum!

wow your olive oil muffins are the cutest!! just as good as the loaf?

And I told my mom to start having a yogurt when her energy dips around 3pm- she now does it everday and is so grateful for me having had recommended it (I didn't think it was a big deal, but hey!).

And why do your sandwiches always look so perfect?!

Have a great night Tina!
