It may be close to freezing this morning, I may need to bundle up in layers and hope to avoid frost bite while running but I don’t care at the moment – I am just happy it is Friday. I am more than ready for a break from the weekday routine.
Yesterday, in between after school activities, I treated us to pizza.
The little boy, who can’t even be quiet long enough to chew, asked me if I can go a day without vegetables.
My response? Sure I can. I just choose to eat my tasty nutrients rather than swallowing them in pill form or through blended forms found in powders.
However, lately I have been eating much less from the produce section. Aside from my beloved apples, berries and this week’s pineapple, if you follow me on Instagram, you have seen breakfast foods making a repeat appearance at lunch.
Yes, that is an ice cream bowl with a baby big bird spoon. Whoever said creative in the kitchen was limited to the ingredients you use in your food?
Oatmeal, greek yogurt bowls and comfort foods such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just sit so nicely in my stomach that they have been replacing lunchtime salads and basically anything involving vegetables.
My stomach can only handle so many servings of vegetables and I am learning that they can’t appear on my plate for lunch AND dinner.
I am all for getting your 5 or 10 a day but sometimes, your stomach needs a break from the routine and you need to listen to your body.
You know what else I have been listening to?
If Eminen’s new song Beserk has yet to make it to your playlist, I am suggesting you add it now.
The Islanders warm up to this song blasting before every game and I know why – it really gets you going.
And on that note, it is time for me to get going and get ready for a cold morning run.
WAIT- BEFORE I GO…
I just realized that Halloween is already next week and I have yet to select this year’s candy to give out to the trick or treaters. If you are also wondering which candy to buy or even which candy to eat next week, check out Hungry Girls latest newsletter:
Have a great weekend!
I NEED TO KNOW:
Do you ever take a break from eating your veggies?
Do you ever eat breakfast for lunch or even for dinner?
When it comes to Halloween candy, do you go for the chocolate or the sugary stuff? I am chocolate all the way. I have no time for the chewy sweet candies that spend more time stuck in my teeth than in my stomach.
