A quick update before I leave for cottage/beach country! I don’t know what the internet situation is going to be like tonight, so I wanted to touch base before I leave
Woke up exhausted as heck this morning and did a little yoga for upper thighs. They definitely needed it! Then I had a quick breakfast because I had to be at the army base mega early (whyyyy does the army ask the media to be at events so frickin’ early??)
Half-eaten egg on english muffin and an orange.
Didn’t keep me “satisfied” per se, but it at least kept me from gnawing my arm off until I got a spare moment for lunch.
I took a picture of why I love pitas so much.
You got your tuna salad…
And then you dump the whole thing into the pocket.
Try fitting a whole can of tuna between two slices of bread!
The tuna salad bytheway, is one can of tuna, 1 tbsp tzatziki, green pepper, green onion and tomato. It was seriously yummy.
Yogurt + cottage cheese + kiwi. I think kiwi may curdle the yogurt when it sits in it for a while. This is the second time it’s gone sour/bitter and runny on me. Anyone know anything about this? Or am I just crazy… I think I need to consult Google on this one.
I finished work early and headed to the grocery store where I proceeded to pick up waaaayyy too much food for the weekend. I always bring extra food with me when visiting family because I eat more than they do. I’m always snacking between meals, so I like to have fruit, bars, etc to munch on. As well as some alternative meal options just in case there’s weird meat on the menu.
My mom also told me the fridge at the first cottage is broken. We’ll only be there for tonight, but it definitely makes things tricky!
- butternut squash
- unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
- peanut butter
- veggie burgers
- hummus (hope this lasts the night in the cooler!)
- babybel cheese (ditto!)
- Nature’s Path blueberry cinnamon cereal
- instant oatmeal packets
- dried apple crisps
- homemade trail mix
- wasa crackers
- Whack of nutrition bars (including new ones I’ll review)
- Cherry dark chocolate Kashi bars
- pita bread
It should be said I’ll definitely be sharing a lot of this with my family. Plus, I’ll be gone till Monday. My mom is still going to yell at me for bringing all this food though!!! Oops!
Then I whipped up a quick supper.
1/2 block tofu, onions, garlic, green pepper, frozen asian veggie mix, Bragg’s and teriyaki sauce all thrown together in a “wok” (which is frying pan in my house). How’s that for a super quick and healthy dinner
I wish I had more time to talk about fun stuff, but I gotta jet!! The beautiful evening is going to disappear on me soon and I want to get to the beach before it does!
Not sure what my internetting will be like over the weekend. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to keep up with my daily updates. But I won’t be able to read other blogs till I’m home. Oh! And Saturday is a big day here on my blog… can ya guess what it is??
Another question: what are some of your favourite cottage/beach eats?
