Usually when I have yogurt and an apple, I thinly slice the apple and dunk it into the yogurt like a dip (I love dipping things, as you’ll see with my lunch!). But I realized my breakfast total was only around 340, which would not keep me full until lunchtime at all. I pulled out the Nature’s Path Granola, dumped it into the yogurt along with the apple, and mixed it up.
I hadn’t had the Thomas Cinnamon Raisin before (I LOVE their Light and multi-grain options), and I was not disappointed. The raisins stayed plump after I toasted the bread, and the cinnamon was sweet enough to be memorable. The Nature’s Path Granola kind of disappointed me. What I thought would be a pumpkin pie party in my yogurt turned out to be a generic granola sprinkled liberally with pumpkin seeds. It was still delicious, but I was looking for something sweeter.
Mondays are my day off, so I spent the morning running errands. While going to the bank and doing my laundry, I broke into another Sobe 0 Calorie Lifewater, this time the Black Cherry Dragonfruit.
Holy crap, this stuff was strong. The black cherry flavor was overpowering! Overall, I liked it, but it bore a funky aftertaste that deters me from purchasing it again. I have a few more flavors to try, but so far the Strawberry one from yesterday is winning the battle.
When I got back from my errands, I defrosted another slice of Great Harvest Dakota Bread, then cut it in half (one loaf yields 16 very thick slices, so they’re easily cut in half to make a small sandwich). I put Boar’s Head Turkey Breast and a Pepper Jack Veggie Slice on top and served it with 1/2 Red Bell Pepper w/ 1tbsp Woodland Farms Almond Butter.
I’ve been putting almond butter on everything lately.
That little plate at the end there is my dessert (I told you, I need something sweet after every single meal!) I enjoyed a fresh apricot, 6 Archer Farms Dried Mango Slices, and 1tbsp melted Maranatha Dark Chocolate Almond Spread, aka THE GREATEST THING YOU WILL EVER EAT.
