Lazy Sunday

After having lunch and reading for a while, I still had a good amount of time before work, and "nothing" to do. (I decided early on in the day I would take a day to relax and get back to organizing my life tomorrow!)
So what's a girl to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Bake, of course!

Today's experiment was another tester recipe for Happy Herbivore, raspberry muffins!

They came out looking very moist and delicious, but I was still full from my big lunch so I decided to wait until later to try one (ok, I did lick the bowl and spoon though!). In fact, my lunch held me over until 4 pm- that's 4 whole hours of satiety, which NEVER happens to me! When I decided I did need a snack, I snacked on a fruit & nut KIND bar I brought with me, which held me well until my dinner break.
For an easy but tasty work dinner I packed a spicy combo of three bean chili, some blue corn tortilla chips and a handful of baby carrots. This meal was satisfying as well, I didn't get hungry again until I got back home and saw those muffins!

For my nightly snack I tried one of the moist, yummy tester muffins and 1/2 a grapefruit.

Now, I'm full, and after a full day I am ready to hit the hay and get some rest to start off my busy week!
