Work is insane, so I’m going to make this quick so I can get back to it! The protein powder made a big difference in the full-factor from this morning’s Overnight Oats. Usually I’m hungry again around 11:30 and wait until at least 12 for lunch or have a snack to hold me over, but today I looked at the clock and it was 1pm and I was just getting hungry! I know this seems silly, but I never thought protein powder would “work” for me. I like to eat (obviously) and I just assumed adding the powder wouldn’t really make a difference and I’d be hungry again just as quickly. I’m glad to know I was wrong and that I’m not immune to protein powder like I thought. 🙂
Lunch today was delicious and such a breeze to throw together. Today was a big salad with delicious toppings and lots of sides to go with it.
This bowl had:
- Baby Spinach
- 1/2 cup chickpeas (canned)
- mini mozzarella cheese balls
- 1 roasted red pepper, sliced
The best part about this salad was the toppings outnumbered the greens, so as I got closer to the bottom of the salad there was still a bunch of chickpeas, mozz, and roasted peppers, but not much spinach.
With the salad, I had some baby carrots
And an overly toasted Bagel Thin, 2 small tomatoes eaten apple style like yesterday, and 3 pickles.
Together it was a delicious, satisfying lunch!
And quite colorful. 🙂 I have another flavor of Siggi’s to try with Weetabix and two kiwis for an afternoon snack. I’m excited to try the other flavor of Siggi’s – Orange and Ginger! And, I am finally down to 1 kiwi remaining from the huge container I bought at Costco the weekend before last. It’s a good thing, too, because some of them are starting to get a little on the soft side.
What are some of your favorite things to stock up on at Costco or other wholesale stores? Of all the purchases I made there, I’d have to say that the 6 pound bag of frozen fruit is probably my favorite. It’s holding up so well and there are peaches, pineapple, honeydew melon, and strawberries in it. It makes for a great snack if I want something sweet to munch on, and is great for smoothies, too! I also am loving the huge container of almond butter and Fage 0% that I got from there.
I’ll be back!
