Daily Eats ~ May 31st

It's a hot and sunny Sunday here in NYC. I'll be staying in and playing with Peanut most of the day. I'll also be posting my daily eats for the first time! Now I'm a not a nutritionist by any means, nor is everything I eat healthy. But I do try, and that should count for something!

Breakfast:
Orange Juice & a Kashi GoLean Cinnamon Coffee Cake Bar (these are the best, but they aren't vegan...). I wasn't that hungry this morning, so I only had a light breakfast.


Lunch:
Ellio's Pizza (it was on sale this week and I hadn't had it in ages!) & an Orange. Ellio's Pizza makes me feel like a kid again. I love it!


Here's a pic of Peanut lunching... for reference, I feed him Blue Buffalo kitten chow (what he's eating in the pic) and Petite Cuisine canned food (this is a great company that makes people food for cats! I get them at Petco in Union Square, which is right near me). Peanut still eats his dry food and water out of measuring cups, as you can see in the pic! Yes, he's that little!


Snack:
Also on sale this week were Ghiradelli brownies. Mom wanted to get some. Neither of us have had a brownie in ages, so I broke down and made them yesterday. OMG are they good! I cut a small square (it's on a tiny plate) for my snack this afternoon, along with a couple of strawberries. YUM!


Dinner:
I had Amy's Baked Ziti Bowl for dinner. This is really tasty and completely vegan! You can't tell the difference between the soy cheeze in this dish compared to regular cheese! Plus I love that they added the veggies in for you-- the peas taste great with it. I also had a bit more of my brownies after because it was a smallish portion (not pictured).


Snack:
For my snack tonight I had a Mott's Healthy Harvest Peach Medley apple sauce (which I originally saw on Peanut Butter and Jenny's blog and wanted to try ever since!). It is really good! I also had a Clif Mojo Dipped Peanut Butter & Jelly Bar. You haven't lived until you've tried this flavor. It is SO good! Just like a PB&J sandwich. It was off the market for a while due to the peanut recall, but I'm glad it's finally back!


So I just realized that a lot of what I ate today wasn't that healthy and that I'm not off to a great start! lol I do eat a lot of "convenience" foods, so you're going to have to bare with me!

Anyways, Peanut says "Good Night"

Now you're probably wondering what he's holding... That's a beanie baby that I got years ago named "Pellet." He's either a hamster or gerbil-- I'm not quite sure. But he's Peanut's coloring and I thought he'd make a nice toy for him, and sure enough he loves it! He drags him around everywhere, bless his heart! :)

Added ya to my blogroll ;)

Aah, how can you not be hungry for breakfast!?! I'm usually STARVING by the time I wake up!

Don't worry about not always eating healthy - I think treating ourselves is GOOD every once in a while as long as a balance exists!

Thanks for adding me!!

Sometimes I'm hungry, sometimes I'm not... I'm usually hungriest at night if anything!
