Now that summertime is almost here and spring has most certainly sprung, I can’t stop eating them. On everything. Sweet mixes, savory omlettes, wrapped in Swiss chard or collard greens…I’m addicted and proud of it. That is eggwhites on an Udi’s gluten-free bagel (which, I gotta be honest with you, might be just the best tasting bagel I’ve ever had. When toasted, it’s got a crunch to it but it’s still thick. I LOVE them.)
I’ve also been eating grapefruits like they’ll go out of style or become extinct or something. That tang from the citrus is unbelievable. Sometimes they can be a bit too tart, so I’ve been taking to topping them with just a sprinkle of stevia from a packet.
That was the other part of my breakfast that day…I put some of the egg whites in another bowl and topped them with salsa. I told you I’m addicted to eggs.
I’ve been taking to drizzling tahini on top of my sweet potatoes like HEAB, but sometimes just that alone can be a bit much for my taste buds. I buy tahini made from roasted sesame seeds and the taste is VERY chalky if you just eat it by itself. That is nothing, however, a little bit of agave and coconut oil can’t fix!
I’ve actually eaten sweet potatoes or potatoes 4 times this week. Also I just went to Trader Joe’s yesterday and as well as stocked up on my favorite sunflower seed butter (which I’m currently enjoying slathered on top of half an Udi’s bagel!), I bought a bag of their small sweet potatoes. One of those bad boys has 100 calories…so obviously I’ll be eating two tonight with my dinner. Just sayin’.
I have issues.
But then again, you knew this.
PS. Thanks for your advice on my lunchtime situation. I’ve been just getting up a SMIDGE earlier and putting together a simple wrap and granola bar/yogurt lunch now, and it’s worked wonders. My energy level is much better. Although this Wednesday at work I got a Starbucks Strawberry Vivanno Smoothie and granola bar for my lunch, and the crash was so intense I swore I’d never do it again. We shall see.
