Day 46

Today was leftovers day because I was too tired to figure out which meal to start with on Week 4 and I had leftovers from dinner last night.  Sorry to be super boring.  I was also super healthy though, which is a major plus!

I am pleased to announce that the grocery store has our unsalted almond butter again!  This, of course, required an almond butter feast!  

For breakfast I replaced my usual whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter and bananas with an upgraded whole wheat english muffin with almond butter! and bananas; 6 oz of low fat milk.  It was delicious.  Oh how I have missed almond butter!  We'll have to buy it in bulk so we are never out of it again!

When I got to work I had a huge coffee.  It was 100% necessary.  I don't regret this decision.

My morning snack was obviously a slice of whole wheat bread with almond butter.  If you are surprised by this, you should probably go back and read some more posts about how much I adore almond butter.

Ok great, welcome back.  I love almond butter.

For lunch I had leftovers from dinner last night.  It was a little weird to eat shrimp at work, but I don't really care what my coworkers think anymore.  

For my afternoon snack, I had some cut up red pepper with 2 oz of hummus. I'm starting to think that buying the bulk "to go" packets of hummus from Costco was a bad idea because we have 9 left and they all must be eaten by March 8.  5 days to eat 9 hummus packages.  Sigh.  It was totally convenient though and made taking hummus to work so easy that even if I have to throw out some it was probably worth it in the long run.

MJ also made a smoothie, and I had about a 1/2 cup.

For dinner I searched through the cookbook until I could find a meal that could be made entirely from things we already had in the house.  I found a recipe for turkey and black bean soft tacos.  Bingo!  The recipe only calls for tortillas, ground turkey, salsa, romaine lettuce and low-sodium black beans.  I was thrilled that we had all 5 ingredients.  I was not thrilled, however, with the meal.  It was just plane jane boring and pretty tasteless.  We even used a fun southwestern salsa and the meal was still pretty bland.  We will not be making these again.  But at least we didn't make an extra efforts for the ingredients, right?
