Since I was in a rush this morning, I just had a glass of orange juice and a Kashi coffee cake bar.
For lunch I tried Trader Joe's Penne Pasta with Creamy Vodka Marinara Sauce. I absolutely LOVE Penne with Vodka Sauce at restaurants, so I was hoping it would taste similar to what I was used to...
Unfortunately it just tasted like regular, mediocre pasta. I really had high hopes for this one, because it looked so promising! But even though I followed the instructions to a tee, the pasta came out soggy and I couldn't taste the vodka sauce at all! (Unlike this place I tried in the West Village last month... now that's Penne with Vodka Sauce!)
Maybe it was the lack of protein or a small breakfast, but I was still really hungry, so I made a veggie cheese dog! I microwaved one of my jumbo veggie dogs and put a few strips of american cheese in it. It may look gross, but it tasted delicious!
And here's Peanut taking a nap between my legs this afternoon...
I decided to make a yogurt parfait with a Fage Total 2% Peach Yogurt & some Trader Joe's Low Fat Granola with Almonds...
I found this entree at Whole Foods yesterday... it's from an organic company called "Seeds of Change." I had their Turkish Seven Grain Pilaf. It was really good! I've had it once before, but a long time ago, and I forgot how much I liked it. I also had an orange after dinner (not pictured).
I bought this awesome strawberry shortcake from Trader Joe's today. I couldn't wait to have a piece! My only gripe is that this cake is TINY.
I had two pieces, as they were very small. Here's what the cake looks like on the inside... very little cake, mostly whipped cream, but very tasty! This is a great light dessert to share with two people (in my case, I shared mine with Mom!).
I also had some of my Trader Joe's Cafe Twists with it (not pictured).
I figured I'd finish the day with a picture of Peanut sleeping on top of his carrier (which he LOVES).
Today wasn't so good food wise, and I was pretty hungry all day. I'm going to aim at being healthier, although I do believe that it's okay to have dessert or a treat every day. I just want to keep it healthy at least 90% of the time. Please keep the comments coming and let me know how I'm doing!
