I’m still dreaming about the Oats in a Jar from this morning… so, so good! They held me over until after 1pm and I wasn’t even that hungry by then, it was just time to eat. I had two yummy things for lunch today. First, I took some of the leftover soba noodles (not with the egg) and added in the marinated tofu and a little extra sauce.

I actually accidentally spilled a lot of it out over my desk, and luckily I had just cleaned my desk this morning so I knew it was safe to eat, but very close call. I ate it cold and it was so good. This sauce is something I’m going to have to try to re-create at home because it adds so much delicious flavor and has next to nothing in terms of calories. With my soba noodles, I had a salad with a base of fresh arugula from the Farmer’s Market.

The arugula is so fresh and peppery… I’m so glad I made this purchase! On top of the arugula, I cut up three radishes (also from the Farmer’s Market), added some spicy banana pepper rings, and fresh shaved Parmesan. Though you can’t see it, I also added the rest of the Kiwi Salsa to this salad which tied everything together. I brought in all my salad ingredients packaged separately today and it makes a HUGE difference in the freshness of the salad.

For an afternoon snack, I had a real treat today. I went to my favorite frozen yogurt place, Yogen Fruz, which I’ve written about a few times on here. I was in touch with the people over at Yogen Fruz and they asked me to come in and try one of their NuMixes to see what I thought. They have Pina Colada, Chocolate Almond, Lychee Green Tea, Chai Latte, Key Lime Pie, and Mint Chocolate Chip flavors of the mixes. Basically, they take their regular frozen yogurt, mix a flavor into it, and then add the toppings that go with it. Today I tried the Key Lime Pie kind, where they took the nonfat yogurt, added key lime flavor, and then top it with graham cracker crumbles.

It really tasted like key lime pie! I love how Yogen Fruz mixes the flavors into the frozen yogurt so the yogurt itself gets flavored rather than just the toppings (which they have plenty of, too).  The only thing I would change is that the graham crackers themselves were ground really fine, almost to a powder, and I would have preferred them a little chunkier. Flavor-wise though, this was spot-on, and definitely something I’d try again.

I think I’m going to go on another bike ride tonight since its so gorgeous out and is supposed to rain all weekend (boo!). Other than that, not sure where tonight will take me, but my first day off in a while is so close, I can taste it!
