Spooky Sunday

Wow, I can't believe it's only 11pm, because I feel like it's about 2am, this day has been soooo long!
I woke up nice and early and had 1/2 a banana before doing a 40-minute power yoga session before I had to get ready for work. This morning I wanted something warm because it was freeezing, so I decided on a trusty filling bowl of 3/4 cup Ezekiel with 3/4 cup vanilla hemp and the other 1/2 of my banana. I also added a few extra raisins for good measure. Sweet and satisfying!

Food for the day was simple- I packed some almonds I ate mid-morning and a can of Amy's black bean soup with some carrot sticks for lunch.

After work I was famished, so I had an apple on the way home- and when I got back to myself I had a small bowl of 1% whipped cottage cheese.

This was enough to hold me until the delicious dinner I made! My favorite pan seared salmon- rubbed with garlic powder, a dash of chili powder, salt and pepper and cooked a couple minutes each side, just to make it nice and hot on the outside. It was fab! On the side we had some steamed broccoli and Red Pepper Risotto, recipe by me- I'll be posting it soon! It came out awesome, I was very proud of it!

After dinner, Nick and I headed to meet up with my sister Alison and her best friend Meagan to go to the Field of Screams for a spooky haunted hayride and fright walk! It was so much fun, I actually got a bit freaked out during the fright walk, it was well worth the cold we were out in. But, to warm up afterwards we decided to go for one of my favorite fall treats- Hot Apple Cider. I drank my whole cup, and had a couple handfuls of popcorn Nick and I got to share.

It was a great way to end the weekend, now I'm about to go get some rest before my big Lab Practical tomorrow afternoon!

Have you ever had the Amy's brand of black bean CHILI??? Now THAT stuff is amazing (better than the soup, in my opinion).... holy yum.

Fabulous risotto!!

Good luck with the lab practical today!!!
