Looking back on yesterday’s eats, they were much more interesting in my opinion so I’ll start with them.
Chai Tea + Banana, Aril, Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Upon waking each morning this week, the temperatures have been in the 50s so oatmeal is the perfect warming breakfast. My oatmeal was mad on the stovetop with:
~1/4 c old fashioned oats
~1/4 c water + a little more
~1/4 c lowfat milk
~1 mashed banana
~Hanful of pomegranate arils (added after cooking)
~Teaspoon? of peanut butter
Lunch was thrown together fairly quickly.
Turkey and Reduced Fat Swiss with Honey Mustard and Spring Mix on wheat bun + honey yogurt and more pomegranate arils
I finally made it back to the gym yesterday after my injury last Tuesday. I started with 15 minutes of cycling, followed by 30 minutes of weights, and 20 minutes on the elliptical to finish up. Exercise most definitely lifts my mood and makes me feel better.
For dinner, I planned on making some Baked Mahi Mahi, which I purchased the other day on sale from my neighborhood grocery. So I got 2 nice sized filets for less than $7.00. I took a cue from my sister’s meal and went with the individual packets.
After rinsing the fish filets, I placed them on a large piece of parchment. I added salt, pepper, garlic powder, mushrooms, black olives, olive oil and white cooking wine, and lemon slices. I also added some chopped potatoes, but ended up taking those out and cooking on the stovetop because they were yet tender and the fish was done. So I cooked them with Brummel & Brown and minced garlic.
The Mahi Mahi was baked at 425* for about 15 minutes. My, oh, my I forget how quick and EASY it is to cook fish. In less than 20 minutes the protein of the meal can be cooked.
I also made some Caesar salad.
My salad was made of romaine, light babybel shredded, homemade croutons from a leftover wheat bun sprinkled with salt, garlic powder, oregano, and basil that was baked at 425* for 10 minutes or until crunchy. I drizzled fat free Caesar dressing over the top.
Wednesday dinner just did not satisfy me so I had to have a slice of Sweet Potato Pie and a spoon of creamy coconut gelato on top.
And for today:
Granola, Flaxseed, Cinnamon Almonds, Half a Banana, Lowfat Milk
Romaine, Grape Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Turkey slice, Light Babybel Crumbled, with Raspberry Vinaigrette + Plum + Cinnamon Almonds
After school snack of chips and salsa.
Wonton Soup + Eggroll
I stopped at Imperial Garden on my way home from sister’s house. I wasn’t really in the mood for Chinese, but hub chose it. My wonton soup was not good; I ate it, but the flavor in the wonton tasted funny.
Thank goodness tomorrow is the weekend! This week has been a busy one. One more week then it’s Thanksgiving Break! :) Woooohoooo!
