Stood up

Well, I didn't end up going to lunch with Katrina- she hadn't realized when we'd finalized our plans for so she accidentally stood me up at lunch! But I understood, so we decided we'd make plans soon and I headed down the street to Markos for lunch instead. I got my favorite healthy baked falafel, which consisted of baked falafel, lettuce, tomato, pickles, cucumbers, hummus and the BEST part- fresh baked pita bread! Mmm, I devoured this while taking a lovely break overlooking the ocean on the seawall.

After lunch I went grocery shopping, and picked up some essentials:

Produce- spinach, bananas, red potatoes, tomato, a pear (we still have tons of apples!) and a lemon.

Blueberries, grape tomatoes, carrots, cilantro

Other stuff- Plain chobani, black beans, 1% cottage cheese, eggs, soy milk

Two fun new tries- Quaker Oatmeal Squares, and two new Pure Protein bars (so excited to try these!!)

In the afternoon, I snacked on a vanilla chobani while doing some studying for Anatomy.

For dinner, I headed down the street to my friend Eric's house to make some dinner and watch some hockey. I made a new recipe from Self which I enjoyed very much- Skinny General Tso's Chicken! I doubled the recipe, and we each had 1 chicken breast with a little sticky rice (about 1/2 cup) and some steamed broccoli. Yum!

This was nice and filling, but my sister came over about an hour later and we were up for some baking so we decided to make banana bread! Nick had some quite over-ripe bananas that were begging to be cooked into a sweet treat Well, somehow in the process of moving I lost my loaf pan (how I have no idea...), so we quickly decided against the bread and made banana muffins instead! We just HAD to try one when they were all done!

Whole wheat, low fat and deeeelicious!

Night all! I have work tomorrow morning so I won't be posting until later, but I got my laptop back so I'll be able to post more regularly!

Those banana muffins look sooooo good.

I love the Oatmeal Squares cereal but honestly, I've stopped buying it...somehow, I end up eating like a whole box in three days. it's outrageous.
