Wasn’t today just gorgeous out???
Did you hear that they caught and killed this guy?
Go Team America! I’m kind of embarrassed that I actually found out about this from the Facebook newsfeed, rather than from any credible news source. When you have hundreds of people updating their statuses that Osama bin Laden is dead, I guess you can assume that it’s true. Then again, the same thing happened with that crazy horoscope thing back in January, and that ended up being a hoax…
In other news, my basketball team won today 97-91!
They kind of rock. Plus now I have bragging rights for at least the next few days, since Keenan is pulling for the Celtics. 🙂
I also made my first ever iHerb.com purchase today! I got myself a 2lb bag of vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder. I’ve never tried it, but I’ve heard so many people in the blog world raving about it, that I figured it was worth a shot. I use protein powder in my smoothies daily, so I’m pretty stoked to try this one out. I also bought a bag of chia seeds, which I haven’t had on hand for a few months now. These will also go in smoothies, for omega-3 power, but I also plan on using them for other recipes, which I’m sure you’ll end up seeing on the blog. My final purchase was dulse powder, which I’m excited to try out. I’ve had regular dried dulse, but I haven’t tried it in a powder form before. Should be interesting to try out, and experiment with different uses for it, besides just a smoothie add-in.
So, on to my food for the day….
When I got to work I bought myself a grande soy chai from Starbucks.
On the outside, it may looks like a normal sandwich, but on the inside…
…packed with berry goodness! I requested this almond butter and strawberry sandwich this morning as a healthier alternative to an AB&J. AB&S, I suppose?? This was actually my first time trying a sandwich like this, and, let me tell you, it will not be the last. Despite lacking all the added sugar that jelly contains, this was still sweet and delicious. I would say that this will be a staple of mine in the future, but I actually don’t keep fresh berries in the house too often because of the price. I was lucky enough to score these strawberries from my farm delivery last week.
As usual, my second lunch was a huge ol’ salad.
In the mix: spring mix (with the radicchio picked out, of course), shredded carrot, red bell pepper, sprouts, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and Goddess dressing.
My dinner at work consisted of half of a baked sweet potato with BBQ sauce.
It photographed poorly, but tasted amazing.
These are super easy to make, by the way. All I did was cut a large sweet potato in half, poke it with a fork a few times, then put in in the microwave for five minutes. I poured on the bbq sauce, then packed it for work. When I was ready to eat it, I simply put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds, then enjoyed. I just wish that I had some itty-bitty containers that I could have carried the sauce in, to put on after microwaving. However, It still tasted great anyway.
I still haven’t decided on my after work snack, but apparently, since it’s my Friday night, I might be going to play poker at one of Keenan’s friend’s houses. That should be interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes, k? 😉
I hope you all have a lovely night, and a great Monday!
Who’s your team in the NBA playoffs? Do you even care?
Tell me about something exciting that happened to you this weekend!
