WIAW… Again

It’s time for another bloggie meetup party.  Woohoo!  I wish I could meetup with more of you in person, but until then, enjoy the pics!

Let’s start with something completely different.  Leia’s cuddling with Kevin, and for whatever reason, I found it picture-worthy.

leiaThey snuggled while Kev and I watched Supersize Me.  Wow.  What did you think of that bombshell of a movie?  I was angered that it was so hard on fast food (McDonald’s really) when other restaurants have plenty of meals that are as bad or worse.  However, the general message was good.  We eat out too often, and when we do, we eat too much.  The school lunch portion was the part I found most interesting.  Thanks, Mom for packing my lunch!

Now it’s time for the good stuff.  I switched up breakfast a teeny bit.  I switched to a two-part breakfast this week, but I’m not loving it.  It is half a banana or a rice cake with 1 or 1/2 TBS natural peanut butter.  I think I prefer my three-part breakfast since I’m starving by 8:30, but this is working for now.  Real breakfast is Love Grown Foods granola, 1 cup of strawberries or blueberries, and 60-calories worth of plain, fat-free Greek yogurt.

The berries are so beautiful!

Lunch for the week is not pretty, but it’s good.  I have two hard boiled eggs with a veggie wrap.

The wrap is filled with broccoli slaw, a little baby spinach, a couple bell pepper slices, and about 1 TBS of TJ’s Goddess Dressing.  That stuff is the best dressing ever, or at least it’s my current crave.  The wraps are also super tasty – verrrry healthy too!

Snack is a mix.  It’s a granola bar and a little nectarine.  I’m loving the fruit, but only partially satisfied with the granola bars.  I’ve had to eat some Nature Valley bars because I ran out of these awesome Nature’s Path bars.  They’re like Rice Krispie treats for grownups!  (Not that adults cannot eat Rice Krispie treats…)

Dinner tonight will be a chicken breast, mini sweet potato, and green beans (or other veggie).  Dinner last night was half a chicken breast, a little potato, and not enough broccoli.

Yup, I was quite hungry, and dinner just wasn’t enough.  I totally thought I had more broccoli on-hand.  Sooooo, I pressed a roll, and ate it with marinara sauce.  Kev had two rolls with butter.  Mmmmm – butter.

I followed that with chips and a spoon of peeb.  It’s okay if the chips are “reduced guilt,” right???  My eats weren’t too exciting today (sorry), but at least my scallops were pretty yesterday.  If you want more great meal ideas, check out the WIAW blog party at Peas & Crayons.

What was the best thing you have eaten so far this week?
