Hello food lovahs!
My eating today was slightly more random than last Wednesday, as I attended a small event at work this afternoon that threw a minor wrench into my healthy eats. Not that I am complaining, it was fun! But you know what happens to me at events…I’m a food table hoverer, fo’ sho’.
Shmanyways, let’s get to it.
Oatmeal! And my fave combo of banana, peanut butter, and honey. It has been a while since I’ve enjoyed any oaty goodness lately, and I’ve missed it. Hit ze spot.
Liberté vanilla Greek yogurt + Enjoy Life granola + blubes. Yummers.
I would just like to take un momento and mention that although I like Liberté and PC Greek yogurt, more options in Canada would be awesome. WHY can we not get Chobani, Oikos, or Fage? Seriously uncool. Seriously.
If you like me on Facebook (and why would you not?!? :)), you may have seen my post about how excited I was for lunch. All morning long, all I could think about was this:
Toasted whole wheat bagel topped with goat cheese and raspberry jelly (halves not combined so this lunch lasts longer ;)), and cherry tomatoes on the side. I can not get enough of goat cheese. It is crazy to think that I used to not like it… These days I die for it!
One of the other sport organizations in my building was having a little “Midweek Midway” action in their office this afternoon, with various games you could participate in while also learning about upcoming events and workshops they had going on. A few of my coworkers and I went down to check it out, and all my little sporty pals were there, so it was pretty fun hanging out and chatting with them.
The games were pretty fun!
Golf and basketball (to the right, but hiding).
War (you got poker chips to play this game, and I lost all mine immediately. I lost every hand :().
I spent a lot of time by the food table, and snagged popcorn, some chips, and an ice cream bar.
I actually had about three of those little cups of popcorn. So addicting!
At one point my boss came over to me and said that our new coworker Liz wasn’t sure where I was and thought I had left…but he told her that she must not know me very well yet, because there’s no way I would have left without hitting up the food table. And then he said he looked over, and there I was, at the food table, snacking on an ice cream bar. Funny.
And guess who won the How Many Candies Are In This Jar game?
Oh yes, ME! I guessed 78 and I was bang-on! Craziness! I won the jar of candy, which is currently residing in my office (with a few missing ;)).
The Midweek Midway broke up my day pretty well, and it was fun to get out of my own office, see everyone, and snackity-snack it up. And WIN CANDY!
I also made sure to drink a lot of water all day long.
I read an article about sitting down all day and about how it is basically slowly killing you (I think I’ll talk more about this in another post) so I am trying to drink as much water as possible so I need to use the bathroom a LOT.
On my way home from work I felt like I needed a little pick-me-up, so I hit up the Timmy HoHo’s drive-thru and got one o’ these…
Interestingly enough, the first time I tried iced coffee I thought it tasted like bacon…now I may be developing a slight addiction. This iced coffee stuff is gooood.
Deli turket sammy with lettuce, tomato, hummus and mustard on honey-oat bread, with leftover corn on the cob, and extra tomato slices. Extremely simple, and it did the trick.
The last of the Maple Crunch ice cream. We are now all out. Ohh well, I guess I have to try another kind!
Yeehaw and hurrah for WIAW!!!
My burn is feeling better, so I’m going for a RUN!!!!
Have an awesome evening!
What was the best thing you ate today?!
