When you have a major tummy ache!!! But, I will power through.
On Saturday I ate a chipotle black bean burger, open face, on a multigrain thin.
I topped it with pickles, onions, sriracha, and ketchup. I got these burgers from BJ's and they are double the calories of the normal Morningstar ones, but they are also double the size, double the flavor, and doubly filling, so it is totally worth it. I also had some string beans and garlic hummus for dipping. Quite the satisfying meal.
Regardless of being satisfied by lunch, the snack monster soon took over my body. Afternoon snacks included...
Honey almonds (OBSESSED!), chocolate Cheerios, an unpictured mini dark chocolate bar, and a couple rice cakes. I'm a little bummed because I was able to avoid snacking all week, but at least my snacks were healthy!
Later I went out to dinner with some friends and ordered
The turkey guacamole flatbread without fries. Amazing! The guacamole tasted homemade, the turkey was unbelievably fresh, and the flatbread was crispy and delicious. As usual, I studied the menu online before going so I could pick something yummy but still low in calories and I was so happy with my choice.
Yoatgurt! Vanilla yogurt, maple and brown sugar oatmeal, and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Delicious! This kept me full for a good four hours. That doesn't happen often!
Lunch was a salad.
Made with baby spinach, red onion, feta, shrimp, and yogurt blue cheese. Looking back I wish I had added some cucumber in too, but overall it was a good salad.
I needed a little something extra, so I made a simple dessert.
A deep chocolate Vitatop, covered in vanilla pudding mixed with PB2. The pudding overwhelmed the pb flavor a bit, but all in all, a nice treat.
Now, I know I ate a black bean burger for lunch yesterday, but there ain't nothing like the real thing.
So I asked Bryan to cook up some homemade bean burgers for dinner tonight. As always, they rocked. He also made some sweet potato chips on the side. A fantastic dinner from a fantastic man!
