Now that I’m unemployed, there is really no difference between my weekday mornings and my weekend mornings. I was up at 6:30 with the baby today, and came downstairs to fix something to eat.
I made a couple modifications to my usual breakfast today. Instead of straight oat bran, I had an oat bran/oatmeal mix:
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- heaping 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
I also beefed up my protein this morning. I wanted to use up the rest of my carton of egg whites so I had 3/4 cup of egg whites (as opposed to my usual 1/2 cup) + 1 whole egg.
Talk about a hearty breakfast!! 😀
This morning, we did our usual Saturday shopping: Target and the supermarket. I was getting hungry when we left for our shopping extravaganza at 10, so I grabbed my last Amazing Grass Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar. So bummed these are all gone! I would love to buy some, but given my current lack of employment, I’m having to cut out the extras, like energy bars. 😦
This is absolutely the most delicious way to get your veggies!!
We got home from shopping around 11:30. After the groceries were put away and the baby was fed and changed, I decided to make some lunch. I threw together a small fruit salad for the hubby and I with some of our fresh produce purchases:
- 1 golden delicious apple
- 1 kiwi
- splash of OJ
For my lunch, I had a small bowl of my fruit salad and a turkey wrap with roasted red peppers.
Dinner was one of my new favorites: Shrimp Fra Diavolo. I served it over a small amount of organic whole wheat rotini. Not much to say about this, other than YUM!!
I put my baby girl to bed around 7:45 and headed into the basement to hop on my Spinning bike (after I had digested my food, of course). I had a really intense 35-minute ride. I was dripping sweat when I was done! Great workout!
Right now, I’m sipping on a home-brewed decaf iced coffee. No more Starbucks for this girl. Gotta save some cash!
Tomorrow morning we’re going out for Father’s Day breakfast. I had contemplated cancelling our reservations after I lost my job on Tuesday, but I decided to keep them. This will be the last hurrah. Plus, I feel like Father’s Day doesn’t get as much special attention as Mother’s Day does. Since it’s my hubby’s first Father’s Day, I want to make it special!
I’m really looking forward to this breakfast! Breakfast is my favorite meal to go out for!
What’s your favorite meal to dine out for – breakfast, lunch, or dinner??
