Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Sunday night. How is it already Sunday night!? Anyone else feel like the weekend flew by? Ok, time to play a little catch-up. Here's breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in one post. 

Breakfast

My breakfast was oat bran with dried cranberries and walnuts. Mr. Mal made the most amazing egg and cheese breakfast wrap with salsa for himself. He gave me a bite and it was so very delicious! After that small taste, my oat bran wasn't nearly as exciting! 


I thought about making an egg, cheese, and salsa breakfast wrap for myself, but I really hate to waste food, so I ended up just eating my oat bran. 


Mal treated me to Starbucks this morning-- my drink was an iced soy milk latte. It was so delicious; no need for Splenda today. 


Lunch

After breakfast, I went grocery shopping for the week. The grocery store was crazy today, so I was in and out within 30 minutes. The highlight of my shopping experience was fresh, juicy watermelon! Watermelon makes me so happy-- it represents summertime to me!  


With my watermelon, I also ate the last of the Coconut Ginger Carrots. Three days later, they are still amazing! 


To round out the meal, I also had a half of a pita filled with peanut butter and apple spread. 


All together... peanut butter and apple spread pita, watermelon, and carrots. 


After lunch, Mal and I went to the hospital to visit our friends, Katey and Ben, who are new parents to a baby girl. Katey gave birth to Riley Grace on Friday morning. Katey is my first close friend to have a baby, which is exciting and nuts at the same time. It feels like yesterday that we danced like fools at the clubs on our semester abroad! We were wild women back then, and now she's a mother! After visiting, Katey, Ben, and Riley for about an hour, Mal headed to see a movie with a friend, and I took the T home to spend a quiet evening blogging and watching the boob tube. 

Dinner

Dinner was a buffalo-blue cheese lavash bread pizza. YUM! I'm a big fan of lavash bread-- it's perfect for a quick, thin crust pizza. It's also super easy to make-- just add toppings and broil in the toaster for about 5 minutes.


Dinner also included lots of raw veggies: grape tomatoes, baby carrots, and cucumbers with a sprinkle of sea salt. I forgot how much I love sea salt on cucumber slices. Mmmmm!


Lavash bread pizza and raw veggies from above...


I'm totally PMSing and craving massive amounts of sweet carbs, specifically chocolate and peanut butter. The perfect PMS dessert: whole wheat bread smeared with peanut butter and topped with chocolate and peanut butter chips. So yum! It definitely satisfied my cravings! 


Time to relax. Good night!
