I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but for the next two weeks I’m housesitting for my bosses while they are on a cruise. They live in this amazing old house! I went over today to see what food they have and what I need to buy at the store. Besides a few fruits and vegetables, they have all the food that I need! My boss even has wheat bran, so I’m going to try some with my oats since Tina had such good stuff to say about it!
I was going to go for a walk, but knew I’d be starving by the time I came back so I made some toast with raspberry jam to hold me over.
That is Eziekiel toast by the way!!! I always almost buy it, but it’s so expensive! I’m glad I got to try it for free because I honestly don’t see what all the hoop-la is about! Tastes just like other tasty whole grain bread to me! It was a nice snack though.
Then I went on my usual almost 2 hour walk with the big hill half way through. It kicked my butt as usual. I am pooped now!
I was starving by the time I got back. I found some leftover salmon in the fridge and was excited to use it for lunch.
This wasn’t all that good. It was leftover salmon that I microwaved. I’m new to eating/ enjoying salmon and this just didn’t do it for me.
I also made an amazing salad though that I can’t wait to have again!
Before I left for my walk, I grabbed 1/2 c. frozen blueberries from the freezer and left them on the counter. When I came back they were defrosted and had given quite a bit of juice.
The salad is 3 c. spinach, 1/2 c. blueberries. 1/2 c. mandarin oranges, about 1 1/2 tbsp. slivered almonds and dressing.
The dressing was just the blueberry juice mixed with some balsamic vinegar and a smidge of honey.
This salad was so delish, but not as filling as I would like. I thought about it for a bit and then I had a 1/2 c. cereal with some milk. II can’t remember what the name of the ceral was. It was either All Bran Crunch or Total Crunch. Either way, it was really good. I would use this as a topper for Kashi Go Lean Crunch (my one true love).
I’m going to watch last night’s Greys now. It’s still so nice outside, but I’m pooped and just want to veg!!!
Edited to add: Ugh. I just found out there was no new gery’s last night. Oh well, I have two more episodes of Lost to catch up on.
