Ahoy! I hope everyone’s weekend was all you hoped it to be 🙂
After working from 7-4 on Saturday, I crashed and was on the couch the rest of the night watching TV and then the Blind Side (good movie!!). Sunday was just cleaning, grocery shopping, and more sitting on the couch 😉
I kept breakfast this morning light since I ate at 10:15, and I knew I was eating lunch out!
Yogurt + blackberries (which I splurged on this weekend) + cinnnamon PB + a handful of cereal. And since I ate it before I remembered to capture it on camera, here are the ingredients which went into the making of such a breakfast:
Excited to try the PB! Good, but not nearly as life changing as the maple almond butter. Had to get every last bit out.
Seriously. Don’t judge. You’d do the same.
I then proceeded to foam roll for a good 25 minutes and stretch. I’ve taken over a week of from running, but yet have majorly slacked on the rolling, which isn’t good. Roll roll roll it out! (sang to tune of ‘Row Row Row Your Boat’)
Then the roommate and I got our shop on at Express with our $15 off of a $30 purchase coupons. I walked out with some new jeans y’all for $24!And a new clutchity clutch from TJ Maxx.
Speaking of new clothes, I also put my discount to some work the other day when I stopped in at Gap. Loving these new jeans I got for only $22!
And also needed some longer shorts I could wear to work.
Is it just me or do those pictures remind you of online shopping and clicking on different colors of the same shirt. And then the shirt color changes in front of your eyes? I’m pretty sure I did actually change bottoms and re-take the picture, as much as it looks like I’m standing in the exact same pose.
Now back to today’s shopping…Took a pit stop for some grub – Veggie pizza (I think it had tomatoes, broccoli, olives, basil and garlic?) with goat cheese (instead of mozzarella) on whole wheat. + a small side salad which escaped the camera.
Love this restaurant’s (Pizza Solo) whole wheat crust. So chewy! I’ve been dreaming about this pizza since the last time I went (when I got Teriyaki chicken pizza), and thought of the idea to get goat cheese on one. It was good, but I’d definitely get some different veggies next time! And maybe some chicken?
I practiced some major self restraint and only had half, which I was happy about 20 minutes later when I was full. And I’ll be happy tomorrow when I have leftovers.
Throughout the afternoon I snacked on dried apricots
And some Nature’s Path granola (so good!)
For dinner I whipped up a version of eggplant parmesan!
2 egg whites
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
Garlic salt, paprika & cumin
1 1/2 cups (half a jar) butternut squash pasta sauce
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Combine the bread crumbs & spices.
After peeling and slicing the eggplant, dunk each slice in the egg whites and then coat them with the bread crumb + spice mixture.
Cook in skillet sprayed with pam or with a bit of oil. Flip to cook both sides.
Lay the eggplant in a pan. I used a square 8 x 8 pan, so I had 3 layers of eggplant. After the first layer, coat with pasta sauce and sprinkle with half the cheese. Layer the rest of the eggplant on top. Top with pasta sauce and the rest of the cheese.
Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes.
Delicious!!! This was so good. Very happy it turned out right since I didn’t look at any recipes.
Plus night-time snackage – frozen blueberries, hot cocoa, and an apple with PB. For some reason my night-time snacks always miss the camera
Now it’s no surprise that my meals were meatless today since I don’t buy/eat meat much at school. But I realized just now that my meals were meatless versions of usually “meaty meals.” Vegetarian pizza instead of meat pizza and eggplant parmesan instead of chicken parm! Go me 😉
Now if only the weather here were actually warm, I could get some beach and sun time in 🙂 Unfortunately it’s been low 60s for a while and doesn’t look to warm up! Where is our California summer weather??
Is it warm where you’re living right now?
And anything exciting over the weekend happen?
