Mochi

Fro Yo Kind of Day

What a gorgeous day outside! It feels like such a sin to be inside today, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get paid…

Today’s lunch was simple but delicious.

  • 1 flatout wrap (1 pt)
  • 2 cups romaine (0 pt)
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas (1 pt)
  • 2.5 tbsp cherry craisins (1 pt)

I then doused the whole wrap in Organic German Mustard (0 pts).

It was so huge that I couldn’t even make it into a wrap, it was more like a giant taco. I don’t think I looked that cute while eating it because of the size factor, but it was goood. The cherry flavored craisins are something new I picked up at the store the other day and added a really nice flavor to the wrap. 1/3 of a cup of them is 2 pts, but that is a LOT of craisins for this purpose, so 1/2 of that was just fine. On the side, I had 1 serving of RF white cheddar cheese (1pt), a cup of grape tomatoes (0 pts), and some baby carrots (0 pts).

I was originally planning on putting the cheese inside of the wrap, but decided the wrap had enough going on without it, ate ate the cheese with the tomatoes instead. Good decision. This lunch was really satisfying and packed with a good mix of veggies, carbs, and protein, and clocked in at just 4 points.

For an afternoon snack, my department went to Yogen Fruz for a frozen yogurt outing to celebrate my boss’s birthday. It is the perfect day for frozen yogurt, so I was happy we decided to do that instead of the regular ice cream cake/cheesy poof birthday celebrations that usually go on around here. I got a small nonfat green tea frozen yogurt with mochi.

It was sooo good. I’m telling you, if you like green tea ice cream, check Yogen Fruz’s website to see if there’s one near you. It tastes exactly the same and is nonfat! Soooo good. What are your favorite toppings for fro yo? I love mochi even though it doesn’t have much flavor, the texture does it for me. I also love dark chocolate shavings, raspberries, kiwis, and just about any fruit.

Tonight I have a reception for work that I’m kind of nervous for. There’s an open bar (beer/wine) and passed hors d’oeuvres. After the reception, I may or may not stay for dinner, but I always have a really hard time being good at these types of functions. I usually have a glass of wine (or 3) and all my good intentions go out the window sip by sip. Do you have any tips for staying on track at work receptions where there is alcohol involved?
