Hello hello my bloggity lovelies!!! I have missed you so much this past week. I got back from the beach and then immediately started my new job the very next day. I have been busy working ever since and then I made a trip back home to Northern VA to see the daddio. Even though I missed blogging…I really enjoyed the break. It gave me a chance to get into a new routine with work and working out and such. And now I’m feeling refreshed and like a million bucks (well maybe not a million…I am only making minimum wage )
Anywho…I am def ready to get back to blogging after my week off
Like I said, I went home this weekend to spend some time with the daddio. My mom is out of town for about a month (yeah I know…the life of a teacher’s aid…she gets the best breaks) so I think he was feeling super lonely. But so was I so it worked out just fine. Besides getting to see the pops…I also got to see a really great old friend who I haven’t seen in months…
That’s right daddio took me to Costco for a seriously amazing grocery shopping spree!!! Yippppeeeee. I MADE OUT LIKE A BANDIT!! I have the best dad in the world. Honestly who else would put up with me puttering around Costco getting super excited about a ginormous package of dates and a econopacks of greek yog…and then on top of all that…pay for it. Only the greatest dad in the world Shout out to Dad—>you da you da best❤
So I forgot to take a pic of all the groceries I got there and really don’t feel like takin them all out of the freezer, fridge, etc so I’ll just give ya the rundown. Greek yog, broccoli, apples, dates, salsa, hummus, almond butter, tilapia, chicken, frozen berries, and turkey were all tossed into the cart Oooo and daddy also bought me a salad spinner (which I’m super excited to try!) but I forgot it there…womp womp.
Now that we have established that I am a Costco-a-holic and that I have the best padre EVER…let’s move onto today shall we..
Pre run fuel= best combo known to man
dates+ almond butter
Breakfast was a purple dough boy in a jar (hence the title of this post).
In the blender went:
1/3 C oats
1/2 C skim milk
then I topped it with strawbs and poured it into a
not so almost empty jar of almond butter. YUM!!! Can’t wait for my next almond butter jar to be not so empty
Lunch was…not photographed cuz I was at work and didn’t want to freak out my new co workers in the break room with my food photography.
But use your imagination…picture a huge green salad with black beans, hummus, and roasted red pepper vinagairette. Oops and I also had an apple
Snack was in between cleaning out fitting rooms and ringing up customers so it was just a larabar.
Dinner was an accidental 3 course meal:
veggie burger, onion, green pepper, mushroom, and egg white scramble tossed with soy sauce
greek yog+frozen berries
an apple + almond butter
random dinner but delish!
So that was my day in a nutshell! Happy Monday
Question of the Day: What is your favorite thing to have for dinner?
