Another gorgeous day… this is incredible after the over-the-top heat from last week/the weekend.
Yesterday was a really snacky day after lunch. It’s funny because having the blog and documenting my food helps me notice trends in my eating bigtime. And then trend from yesterday was snacks.
“Dessert” was frozen grapes.
Ever tried these? You just rinse and freeze the grapes overnight and they are one of the best snacks ever because they taste like sherbet, take a while to eat, and are only 1 point for a cup and very nutritious! 🙂 Later I had an unpictured banana, and then when I got home from work I had two Wasa Crackers (1 pt) with a babybell cheese (1 pt).
I ended up going out for a nice bike ride after my snack. It was such a beautiful day out and though I had run in the morning, it was just a quick run (3 miles), plus I had nothing else to do! Stats:
Distance: 10.23 miles
Duration: 46:14 min
Avg. Speed: 13.3 mph
Avg. Pace: 4:31 min/mile
Amazing ride in the perfect weather, plus I had thrown together a smoothie before the ride so was fantasizing about it the whole way and dove into it immediately when I got home.
In the mix:
- 1 cup light soy milk (1 pt)
- 1 medium frozen banana (1.5 pts)
- two handfuls of spinach (0 pts)
- 1/2 tsp cocoa powder (0 pts)
- vanilla extract (0 pts)
- few ice cubes (0 pts)
I topped it with a packet of barney butter (90 calories – 2 pts) and it was soooooo good. I ate it out on my balcony to enjoy the beautiful night a bit more.
A few hours later I made a small quesadilla with 2 corn tortillas (2 pts), RF shredded mozzarella cheese (1 pt) and garlic gold (0 pts).
And then a baby bowl of cereal with 1/2 cub fiber one (0 pts), 3/4 cup Puffins (1 pt) and ~1 cup of light soy milk (1 pt).
And then I felt satisfied so I went to bed.
Lesson learned? Eat a bigger snack in the afternoon and a meal at night. Should be intuitive, but everyone works at their own pace, right? 😉
This morning breakfast was simple because I was feeling lazy in the cooking department.
Stonyfield Organic Blueberry Yogurt (2 pts) with 1/4 cup rolled oats (1 pt) and a pink lady apple (1 pt).
Are you a snacker or more into eating larger meals? What are some of your favorite snacks?
