Ughhh.. so today started out just wonderful! I got called into work for an 11-4 shift, (keep in mind it takes about 35 minutes to drive there) and I get there- and an hour later they send me home! gah. such a waste of time!!!!! other than that, I guess my day is okay.
So you all had lovely guesses for my "surprise" gift but.... it is...
Don't mind my shower hair + no makeup! This thing is sooo nice for reading + blogging. It keeps my arms nice and warm, :)
SO I guess you are all wondering about my meal plan. as I said it is all about "balance".. a balance of different food groups.. Its not a meal plan per say, just a rough guide. At meals I need to have 3 food groups, and 2 groups at a snack!
This is still a staple snack for me! and it counts as "balanced snack" grain + protein/dairy
(it does not need to be measured, because no matter how much granola I add- it's still a grain, you see?)
Pita pizza!!! Crust=grain, Cheese= protein/dairy, Tomato sauce+apple= fruits and veggies (in the "natural vitamin" group...) You see?! Its pretty simple
This shall be called "Caramel latte oatmeal"
Caramel latte biscotti + oats.
What's in my oatmeal? Well, I always used to cook it with water, but to add a 3rd group, I started cooking it with milk. I don't like it as much, but whateverrr.
Sooo.. 1/2 oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, biscotti =Carbs!
Peanut butter= fat/protein
Peanut butter sandwich (carb + protein/fat)
cottage cheese (protein/dairy/fat)
its sooo easy! See tonight i'm going out to dinner! I'm planning on ordering a chicken wrap with fries..
Chicken wrap w/ ranch (Carb, protein, fat)
oven baked fries (Carb, fat)
although I know its higher in calories, nutritional wise it is "balanced" which right now, is all that matters. :)
Have a wonderful day!
