Colorful Eats & Snow Day Superstitions

So how’s the weather where YOU are today??

Things are still clear here – the calm before the “storm” I suppose you’d say. But I’ve got high hopes for what’s to come…

C’monnnnn SNOW DAY!!! Rolling on the floor laughing

I’ve got my fingers crossed… Fingers crossed

Breakfast

Another craving for the cereal combo bowl hit me this morning. I’ll tell ya, it never gets old!

Enjoyed at my desk, along with some scrumptious caffeine in a mug. Winking smile

Lunch

When I tell you that I was excited about my lunch immediately after finishing today’s breakfast, I swear I’m not kidding…

How ‘bout them leftovers?!? Smile

I created another combo bowl of sorts by mixing together the following ingredients:

  • 1 leftover Twice-Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato boat, slightly mashed
  • Leftover roasted cauliflower
  • Chopped spinach (about 1 cup?)
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Extra Broccoli florets
  • A dollop of plain, nonfat Chobani Greek yogurt

These leftovers were everything I’d dreamed they’d be! Having the potatoes be a little more solid totally worked with this bowl today. All of the flavors meshed together so well!

All I can say is…I’m glad I still have more leftover potatoes. Winking smile

The combo bowl actually left me feeling pretty full, but hunger struck again a couple hours later, so I snacked on my nice, crisp golden delicious apple,

and some honey sesame Kashi crack crackers.

Workout

After work, I wasn’t in much of a mood to run, so I decided to take it a little easier today and did my favorite 45 minute treadmill walk while watching Ellen. That workout usually covers just about 3 miles, so it’s still a good one!

Dinner

Or shall I say…breakfast? Winking smile

For some reason, I could not get an egg & cheese bagel sandwich off of my mind, so I lightly toasted one of my Weight Watchers bagels and topped it with:

  • 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
  • Fontina cheese
  • 2 slices roasted deli turkey
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Tomatoes

Mmmmmm!! Open-mouthed smile

On the side, I had about 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese + mixed fruit.

Tonight’s dinner totally hit the spot!

Actually, ALL of today’s meals totally hit the spot. Don’t you just love when that happens?

Plus, I’d say I’m pretty happy with all the pretty colors I was able to incorporate too. I think I need to work on doing that more often!

Well, I think it’s time to go throw on the PJ’s…backwards and inside-out, of course! Gotta keep routing for that Snow Day tomorrow!! Winking smile

Question for the Evening:

Did you/do you have any strange/unique superstitions or rituals??

    haha I always say knock on wood! I don’t necessarily believe it-but I just have to say it! Or else what if it really does happen? ;)

    We’re predicted to get 10 – 20 inches here in the Hudson Valley! You’re lucky that you get snow days! I’ll have my fingers crossed for you, even though I’m sure you’ll have a snow day anyway! :)

    When I was in high school and college, I never wore makeup on test days. Don’t know where I got it from, but I was always worried about getting makeup in my eye (??) during the test! Very strange indeed.

    I just wanted to let you know that all your meals that you made today look like absolute perfection! Keep making great meals like that so I can copy you once I start classes up next week and need to pack my lunch! :) You’re so inspiring and I truly mean it when I say that! :)

    Keep up the great work…. I look forward to watching you blog for more tasty treats!

    YAY for being teachers and having snowdays!! (I live close, in Rotterdam). Enjoy your wonderful day off, I think were going to venture up to Gore to go skiing.

    Your cereal breakfast and veggie lunch looks really really great. Enjoy staying warm inside… away from the snow. I’m in New York… we have similar weather. Cold and snowy!
