I broke my fast Saturday morning with some chicken sausage and an apple with a smidge of almond butter before going to my Saturday job feeding horses at a ranch. I did my thing, enjoyed my Dunkin' Donuts coffee (black, of course) and came home hungry. I fried up 3 eggs in the butter I clarified and did something unthinkable with them:
I put them on a bed of spring greens with halved cherry tomatoes, salt, and pepper. I dressed the salad with the drippings. Ohh yeah. Salad for breakfast.
Later I met my BFF MICHERU for lunch and some shopping. She's looking so svelte now! Go, Michelle!
We had lunch at a healthy cafe (I think it was actually called Healthy Cafe or something) and I had a great salad with turkey, oranges, walnuts, cranberries, and a raspberry vinaigrette. I ordered an iced black tea with passion-orange-guava juice in it... no added sugar. It was DELICIOUS. Oh my goodness. Tea sweetened with fruit juice?
WHY DID I NOT THINK OF THIS?!
We took more tea to go and hit up the Barnes and Noble, which is like our toy store. We both managed to leave without spending any money, but it was a close call. Michelle found an Army Survival Guide that would come in handy in the case of the impending breakdown of society, and I sat reading the All-New Square Foot Gardening book. I'm stoked about starting a container garden, and this book is easily applied to a container garden. While I was searching for It Starts With Food (I couldn't find it, which is probably a good thing even though I couldn't have justified buying it) I managed to talk a lady into checking out Robb Wolf's book, and while browsing shelves I saw this out of the corner of my eye:
It's an anatomy coloring book, and it has a buddy called the Physiology Coloring Book. It's like, an inch thick, and I HAVE TO HAVE THESE. I love to color and I need to know A&P. THIS IS SO MUCH WIN PACKED INTO A SMALL SPACE I THINK I'M GOING TO EXPLODE.
Mom made burgers for dinner. Eating burgers without buns is normal in our house because she grew up eating "steakettes," which is what her grandmother called ground beef patties. I had mine with some mashed avocado and steamed broccoli and carrots.
Sunday I was so over eating eggs, so for breakfast I had some pistachios and a banana for breakfast with my coffee.
I followed with a salad topped with a cold steakette (I decided a paragraph ago to call them that now), some Essence, tomatoes, and a little olive oil. Delicious!
For D&D night (I play Dungeons & Dragons on Sunday nights, yes) I bought some cut-up broccoli, cauliflower, carrot chips, and premade guacamole. Daniel bought chips and salsa, his sister brought trail mix, and everyone else brought beer for themselves. No cheetoes or Mountain Dew at this nerd gathering. Believe it or not, raw veggies dunked in salsa are delicious. That was dinner.
This morning (Monday) I had two chicken sausage links and half a peach for breakfast, and my snack was carrot chips dipped in almond butter. I'm planning to defrost some chicken for dinner and cook it up in a stir-fry (less the soy sauce though, since coconut aminos apparently don't exist in my town). It's almost class time now and I effectively blocked any coffee expenses by leaving my mug/cold beverage tumbler in the car. Haha! Take that, impulse buying!
Time to go to Greek Lit and talk about the Oresteia!
