happy wednesday! (aka happy 10 days until the wedding!). are you sick of those countdowns yet? sorry if you are – i’m too excited!!!
good thing i have something to talk about today – otherwise you’d hear all about the wedding mania that went down yesterday… but instead, i’ve got my day of meals from monday – aka my first day back to
breakfast was oats eaten in a jar and coffee in my thermos at my desk!
i’m bummed to have my ugly desk as the background for my breakfast/lunch photos again. ugh.
lunch was packed up the night before and included a salad, a green apple, cottage cheese, carrots, and horseradish hummus (it’s all gone now – i’m sad.).
i also had to dig into my snack stash right away. first thing – chocolate!
i only had one square and it was delicious!
about 3 hours later i was feeling a little grumble in the tummy, so i decided to try this new-to-me raw revolution 100 calorie bar.
it had cashews and spirulina.
it wasn’t bad after i got over the green color. but, i’m pretty sure it was this bar that turned my pee a crazy neon green later that day. has anyone else experienced that with spirulina?? it freaked me out until i remembered that i had eaten something out of the ordinary!
coffee has become a major staple in my life this summer. i’ve been cutting back on starbucks, but i needed a treat when i was out running errands…
a grande iced skinny vanilla latte! mmm….
for dinner i whipped up a variation of my portobello mushroom enchiladas. this time i kind of threw together whatever i had for the stuffing. i added diced tomatoes, red onion, red pepper, black olives, chopped mushrooms, and shredded chicken. i also put a smear of refried beans in the middle of each enchilada and added plenty of shredded cheese on top. sadly, i didn’t take any photos as i went along, but here’s what it looked like on my plate!
i also warmed up some steamfresh broccoli for some greens.
on a completely unrelated note – i got my hair dyed yesterday! 🙂 i love when my hair is dark, but it always fades quickly, especially when i spend a lot of time in the sun. so clearly, with the garden this summer, i’d just be throwing my money away if i dyed my hair at all in the past couple months.
but now that the garden is over, i can go dark again!!!
i love it!! i think the dark hair makes me look tan and makes my eyes pop!
it’ll probably fade a bit in the next day or two – i hadn’t washed my hair since my appointment when this picture was taken… also, don’t mind the lack of make-up. that’s how i’ve been rolling lately.
i hope you all have a great wednesday!
