Do you girls get words and phrases stuck in your heads? I do! I get songs too, but I often get random words or sentences repeating over and over again. It doesn't annoy me, but I've never met anyone else that this happens to. The title of my post it what's repeating through my head right now. In ballet today, we had just finished an exercise and my teacher's helper just said "So, yay." with no emotion. It sounds stupid but it was hilarious! Oooookay reading this over sorry for the randomoscity but I'm a space cadet right now.
This morning I had to go get my blood drawn for my stupid ED doctor. She makes me get it done like every other month! Hate evil doctors grrrr. I had to sit around in a waiting room for an hour before I finally got called to get my blood drawn, so I was not a happy camper. I'm okay with blood, but thankfully I only had to get two vials worth taken out of me. I had to fast too, which I never had to do when I was underweight. It was 10:00 when I got home and I was hungry like a wolf. I saw some leftover cheesy corn and barley bake so I threw that in the skillet with tofu and a couple mushrooms.
It was okay. For my daily bowl of oatmeal, I made banana chai! My dad likes to buy this chai latte mix from TJ's. It has a bit of sugar and milk powder in it. So I put a tbs of that in, plus half a micro'd banana. Sooo creamy and good!
I don't have a pic of my AM snack, sorry. It was just almonds. It was just me and my mom for lunch today, so we decided to have the same sammich. The sandwich consisted of about 1 1/4 eggplant cutlets from TJ's, 1 slice mozzarella cheese, and 2 tbs marinara sauce. The photo doesn't do it justice. Eggplant parmesan sammich! :] With carrots and lentil dip, and a Kashi bar.
Snack today was a challenge (imagine me doing magical wavy fingers). I'm sure I'm not the only girl on here who struggles with eating by the clock, and eating the same thing every day. My snack eating schedule is crazy, I usually spread everything (always a yogurt, fruit, carrots, and carby thing) out from 3-6:00 because I'm afraid I'll get hungry. The ironic part is that I do get hungry, when I'm only letting myself eat a clementine because it's not late enough to eat a heftier snack. This afternoon, I decided that that is probably the stupidest ritual on Earth and needed to be broken! So I listened to my body and ate when I was hungry, which was at 4:00. And I didn't just eat fruit to try to temporarily kill my hunger. I had a real snack!
On the right, you see plain yogurt plus a microwaved apple and cinnamon. New favorite snack! And also a Archer Farms granola bar, which was just okay. This snack kept me satisfied for 3.5 hours, and eating each part of my snack over the course of three hours never did that for me. So take that, ED!
For dinner, I made a family favorite, kugel! It's still a bit of a fear food for me, but it becomes less and less of one every time I make it! It seriously tastes like apple pie pasta. Mmm. I ate the last apple in my yummy snack today (whoops) so I used applesauce and added in dried apricots and raisins and it was amazing. We had it with broiled tofu from Vcon, and some steamed rainbow chard. Balanced meal, for once!
I ended up eating another serving of the tofu because the omnis have something against it.
I showed my mommy my blog today. She seemed pretty pleased by it. She said that it's clear that I get nothing but supportive comments from you ladies! Her only question was whether or not I'd be taking food pictures for the rest of my life. I don't want to think about quitting food blogging though, even if it ends up being years in the future. I love it too much!
