Carrots and Apples

So the consensus is... our favorite vegetables are carrots and apples!
tee hee...
Today was quite the fun day!
In the morning I spent the day with my mom's preschool class. They're two and three year olds, so our discussion on nutrition was basic, but they were adorable, so it really didn't matter. I hear I play a mean duck duck goose... ;)
At snacktime, I had what the kids were having- some raw veggies in a cup, and a handful of my own raw almonds.

At lunchtime, I hopped over to one of my favorite coffee shops nearby to grab my mom and I Mediterranean Salad Wraps. They had lettuce, carrots, cucumber, black olives, roasted red pepper, hummus and dressing in a wheat wrap. Plus a pickle slice, and I was satisfied for hours! Yum! I also had a small Pumpkin Spice iced coffee with a splash of nonfat milk for creaminess.

Class was interesting; in Kinesiology I learned how to take blood pressure, and got mine taken- 116/70, which is pretty much normal! After class I snacked on a Kashi bar to hold me over.

It worked; but only for a few hours! I wasn't meeting my friend until 7, so I immediately grabbed a light cheese stick when I got home to settle my growling tummy!

For dinner, we stopped at a great little Italian pizza/pastry shop near the movie theatre. I wanted a spinach pie, but they didn't have any regular sized ones, so I settled on a small one, and tried a slice of their white pizza strips, which was AMAZING! I can't believe I have never tried these, they are fantastic! Fresh dough, dressed in olive oil, parmesan, garlic and a whole bunch of slices... baked until fluffy, tasty perfection. Mmm... this meal was a bit grain-heavy, but I did get some iron in with the spinach! Totally worth it =)

I am SO glad it's Tuesday night. I'm getting some rest tonight, I'm exhausted. Tomorrow it's back to work!
