Among other things for breakfast, I made an old favorite: gingerbread oats. 1/2 tbs molasses, sprinkles of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, and topped with blueberries that are actually purple.
For my AM snack I had some fruit leather and puffins, no pic. I've had a jar of chocolate soynut butter sitting in my pantry for the longest time. I tried it once and didn't like it very much, but I need to use it up eventually so I tried it again today. I grilled it on WW potato bread with some sliced strawberries and it was pretty yummy! I am convinced that grilling any sammich makes it taste a million times better! I also had a vanilla Chobby wob, sliced apples, and a TLC bar.
We had a lot of bananas getting ripe so I used them to make cookies! Or, I don't even know if I should call them cookies because they're refined sugar-free and I want to eat them for breakfast. Oooh I know, I'll call them Healthy Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies! Sorry I don't have a better picture, but I ate them with cottage cheese + blueb and an orange.

- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 chopped banana

- Combine all ingredients with a spoon. Drop by heaping tablespoonfulls onto a greased cookie sheet.

For dinner we made a spinach and cheese fritatta. Yes, I realize this is almost exactly what I ate for dinner last night. I don't care. The fritatta was made of 5 eggs, 2 tbs of milk, 1/2 c parmesan cheese, pinches of salt and pepper, about 4 c of spinach, and 2 slices of cubed mozarella. Combined the eggs, milk, parm, salt and pepper, dumped it over wilted spinach in a skillet, topped with mozarella, and broiled it for 3 minutes. It was delish. I also had two slices of French bread.
And an apple plus melted Zbar goodness. I love me some carbs, probably too much. But I'm sick so I can eat what I want.
Soo tomorrow I'm having a class party, I forget the reason why. I can't eat at these things for the life of me. I wish I could just eat and enjoy myself, but ED always bugs me. Eating spontanesouly is the worst for me. And it doesn't help that I have no friends in my class to socialize with. It just makes me even more nervous to have to make smalltalk to people I don't even know, and I feel like they're judging what I'm eating. Do any of you have tips for eating at parties like this?
See you all in dreamland!
