That's right--I actually took pictures of the food that I ingested today!
It all started with this apple oatmeal goodness:
This doesn't look like much, especially in the bowl that we got from the insurance company after the fire, but it was just what I needed this morning. I let the oatmeal cook longer over a low heat to soften up the apples, and I also used coconut/almond milk instead of water to cook it. And that almond butter you see in the background? Soooo good. I've always been a peanut butter person, but every once and awhile I'll get a jar of almond butter and wonder why I don't do it more often.
Breakfast was eaten after trying to figure out my phone's panorama feature and taking this picture:
After breakfast I tried to make my mushy brain do some work, until about ten a.m. when I went to the gym for a run. I've been kind of irritable the last few days, so a good run with energizing music did me some good.
Something else that did me some good? Going to a movie in the middle of the day and eating brussel sprouts and a muffin top for lunch.
After the movie I went to the Levi's store on the 29th Street Mall to try on jeans. The sales girl at the Levi's store had definite ideas about how jeans should fit, and kept insisting that I try on and buy jeans that were tighter than I like. (Even after I explained my distaste for the muffin top effect.) Actually, I never said the words "muffin top"; she used the word when I was trying to describe how the jeans were too tight in the waist. Thanks a lot.
The remainder of the day has been pretty uneventful. I made some noochy kale
which I enjoyed with a cranberry kombucha. Now, I'm snuggled down for the night, kind of watching TV and looking at random sites on the internets. Peace out, peeps!
*Almond or peanut butter? Also, what are your thoughts about oatmeal? Obviously it's big in the blog world, but do you really like it? (How about when you don't add gobs of honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar--then do you really like it?)
