A Salad, a Muffin, a Modern Kitchen

I've been a busy bee this morning! I've been diligently working and getting a lot accomplished, so instead of breaking for lunch, I decided to keep the momentum flowing by just grabbing a salad from the salad bar in the cafe. Like usual, today's salad included a little bit of everything. Salad highlight: sweet golden-yellow cherry tomatoes.

I wasn't really craving salad for lunch, but knew my body needed some fresh veggies in it. (I swear, we will go grocery shopping tonight!) I ended up making a salad, but also decided I wanted a sweet, carby blueberry muffin (in a bad way!) It was delicious and hit the spot! Sometimes, you just gotta give into your cravings!

After finishing my homemade iced coffee this morning, I still had quite a bit of ice leftover in my travel mug, which, to me, meant another potential iced coffee. So, I brewed a cup of hot coffee in the office, let it chill in the fridge for a few hours, and then added it to the remaining ice. I'm surprised that it actually worked! Yay to afternoon iced coffee! :) I also had a Hershey's kiss... well, 2 Hershey kisses.

Modern Kitchen Finds

I was reading around the blogs recently, and stumbled upon a wonderful home decor blog called Modern Design Blog. You guys know how I love fun, kitchen gadgets and decor, so I just had to share these posts with you. Lots of cool stuff!

Thankfully, the salmonella outbreak did NOT affect cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, tomatoes sold with the vine still attached, and homegrown tomatoes.

Do you have any tips on how not to snack at work? When stressed and or bored?

Also, do you eat breakfast before you work out? If not, how are you not hungry while exercising?

Here's a link to ideas about how to avoid office food temptations: http://www.carrotsncake.com/2008/02/reader-tips-for-avoiding-office.html

Sometimes, I will eat a snack before the gym-- it just depends if I am hungry or not when I wake up. If I do have a snack, it's usually toast with peanut butter or jelly.
