Yesterday I hit the mall with one of my friends and we went into Sur La Table which is an upscale cook wear, bakeware and all things foodie galore! seriously, I have never been into such an amazing store!
Fun cocktail napkins
I wanted this.
Heaven? I think so.
I got home around 5pm and was a bit hungry, but not ready for dinner yet. I whipped up a yog mess with 1/2 sliced gala apple, frozen blueberries and some vanilla extract
I also had one of these lil muffins from Trader Joes that have only 80 calories, 1.5g of fat and 13 grams of fiber! They are super tasty and don't taste 'cardboard-like' at all! I heated it up in the toaster and it was perfect!
Dinner was a big ole' salad with smoked tofu, sprouts, yellow bell pepper, cuke, butter lettuce, pumpkin spiced chickpeas
Trader Joes low carb wrap with some more sliced tofu and melted mozz= A tofu Quesadilla! and roasted BS's.
This was delicious! the smokey flavored tofu and gooey cheese onto of the crispy 'dilla was just was I was craving!
Bad snap shot of myself ready to go out on the town with my best friends! Jason was in NY visiting his friends and 2 of my best friends were in town for the holidays. We went to a bar downtown Boston called "Whiskeys" we met up with some of my other good friends from HS and it was SUCH a fun time! I always love seeing my best friends from HS.
This morning, I woke up around 10:30! This is unheard of for me, but I did get to bed around 3am, so I thought it was ok to be lazy, especially on a Sunday!
This guy was waiting for a nice bath
A Coffee bath!
I have had this mug since I was 3 years old. I LOVE it with all my heart and this morning I went to my basement to get some laundry and saw it on the shelf where my mom keeps some old kitchen stuff. I smiled from ear to ear and knew I was going to be using this mug!
1/2 C oatmeal, chia, cinnamon, 2 eggwhites, frozen cherries. MMMM
-I hit the gym after I digested. I was in the mood for a run. To be honest I could have gone outside it was about 60 degrees here today in Boston! But it was a bit rainy, so I opted to go on the dreadmill. I did 4.5 miles! Felt awesome. Ended with some ab work and called it a day.
This was the star of the show for lunch! Spicy hummus from TJ's. The hummus itself was delicious! it was the inside that was super spicy, but I liked it :)
And a big ole' salad again. This was so good last night that I had to make it again for lunch! pumpkin spiced chickpeas, tofu, yellow pep, cuke, tomaters (sorry for the repetition)
Reading some Cooking Light. Great article on the Power Of Oats
And some awesome recipes
I will be making this!
Then I saw an add for Celcius whose tag line is 'Burn baby Burn" it is said to help your body burn up to 100 extra calories....hmmm I am very skeptical of these so called calorie burning drinks such as this and Enviga. I did a bit of research and it showed that
in the small number of controlled studies done on these products, the slight increase in metabolic rate was insignificant to weight loss. According to The Center for Science in the Public Interest, many of these drinks are ineffective and their advertising claims false.
I am off to relax, and watched Knocked Up, which is on E! (love this movie!) Plan is to go to spinning tomorrow morning at my gym or run, I can't decide! We'll see how I feel later!
- Thoughts on these calorie burning drinks? Do you drink them, is it because of their claims or do you simply enjoy the taste?
- Do you have a childhood gadget, toy or object that you, to this day adore, like I do with my frog mug?
- What is the most recent recipe you made?
