Breakfast was an old favorite with a new favorite!
Easy breezy lunch-
My lunches have been really uncreative lately, but it’s about eating what you love- and I do love burritos, pumpkin yogurt, and apples with peanut butter 🙂
Speaking of Kat… I saw a recipe for quinoa flax pizza crust on her blog today and gave it a try for dinner.
I topped the crust with hummus and spinach. I was too lazy and hungry to do much else, but it was really good! It kind of reminds me of an oatmeal bread my mom used to make.
In lieu of my nightly bowl of ice cream, I had another sweet treat- the white chocolate tea I showed you yesterday.
I like most kinds of tea, but this one was especially delicious! Not too sweet, and it really tastes like white chocolate. So happy I have three boxes of this stuff 🙂
Lately, I’ve been eating bigger dinners, and combined with ice cream and other snacks after dinner, I’ve been waking up still full- never a good feeling. Heather wrote a post about this that I found really helpful. I never used to snack at night, but now that I’ve been doing it more often, I feel like my body is getting used to it. I’m not actually hungry after dinner- quite the opposite- so I know my need for a snack is a mental thing.
I have no problem eating dessert every day (obviously 🙂 ) but I also feel as though I’ve been eating a bit too many sweets, which is crowding out my vegetable / fruit consumption.
What to do about this? I think I’m going to take Heather’s cue and start eating fruit after dinner instead of whatever I can scrounge up from the kitchen. I never feel like a meal is finished until I have something sweet, so I think fruit will be the perfect way to end dinner without feeling too full.
Are you a night snacker?
