Fruits and Froyo

February 26, 2012 at 2:18 pm Leave a comment

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all like my new and improved stuffed pepper recipe last night!

I never did finish up my Saturday happenings though, so here they are…

Like I said yesterday, Chad and I were going to run errand and get ingredients for dinner. We ended up putting a few more items into our buggy than we intended, but they were all good things!

All the fruit looked so good, so I picked up some strawberries, grapes, and nectarines! yummy!

Also, can we discuss the fact that every time I get in Chad’s car, there’s a new candy bar wrapper in the floor???

Maybe he thinks he needs to hide all the junk food since I try to eat healthy? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, when we got home, I decided to go for my “week 3 day 3” Couch to 5K run. I thought that it felt warm enough to run in shorts and a tshirt. WRONG. I was completely frozen within 5 minutes, but I pushed through! The wind was also ridiculous! I thought I was going to be blown over, seriously.

Post-run snack was a fruit bowl I made out of our recent purchase!

Diced nectarine and grapes. YUM!

Dinner was of course, the stuffed peppers. Then we went to a froyo place in Florence called Frostbite because they had a no sugar added vanilla flavor that day. Let me just say that I could eat froyo every day for the rest of my life and be okay.

I got about a cup of the NSA Vanilla with some strawberries, pineapple, mini marshmallows, a teeny tiny bit of brownie bites, and an eensy weensy bit of cheesecake bites. Didn’t wanna go too crazy. πŸ˜‰

After that, we called it a night!

This morning, after waking up to Pierre licking my face (really), I fixed myself some coffee and breakfast part 1.

A serving of Fiber 1 80 calorie cinnamon squares and about 1/2 a cup of sliced strawberries with a splash of skim milk.

Breakfast part 2 (not pictured) happened at church between services and was 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt plus 1 cup of frozen grapes. OMG SO GOOD! It was my first time freezing grapes, and now, ALL grapes will go into the freezer as soon as I buy them!

Since my past couple of meals and snacks have been “fruit heavy,” I needed to get some veggies in for lunch! I knew that Chad would be eating last night’s leftovers, so before I went to church, I put a sweet potato in the crockpot on high. It sat for about 5 1/2 hours and was cooked perfectly!

I topped it with almond butter and had a side of Wasa crackers and laughing cow cheese. Delish!

I’ve got a new snack item to try this afternoon that I’ll be sharing with you guys tomorrow, then church tonight, followed by a new episode of The Walking Dead!! I hope you guys don’t think I’m weird for loving this show, but it’s just so good!

Dinner is going to be something quick that I can bring with me to church, so I’m thinking it’ll be Subway. Can’t go wrong there!

Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚
