Every 26 days I feel down and out and kind of blue. I get really frustrated and overwhelmed with life and I get all sad and morose. Today was that day. I hate day 26. So does my husband. I went for a walk this afternoon though and I’ve been in a better mood since then. Thank goodness!
Lucy dancing around with my underwear on her head helped too:
Don’t worry-it was clean!
For lunch I made a big salad with the leftovers from Friday night. A bed of spinach with steak, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, quinoa, pear, and goat cheese. Dressed with Annie’s Goddess dressing with some balsamic.
After lunch I went to Trader’s to shop for the week. I normally go to Whole Foods but I knew that I wanted pizza tonight and I didn’t feel like making my own dough. Trader’s has great dough so I decided to do my shopping there. I hate that all the produce and meat is from so far away. Their products are too. I ended up spending about $60 MORE than I normally spend at Whole Foods and it was for food that left a HUGE carbon footprint. If that’s not a fail, I don’t know what is. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself and I ate an entire Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bar. A smaller 290 calorie one but still. I woofed it down before I could take it’s picture.
Before my walk I had some yogurt with Galaxy Granola-love this stuff!
After my walk I normally eat a Larabar but decided to skip it because of the chocolate mishap 🙂
When we got home, I made pizza. Vegan for me.
A more traditional pepperoni (turkey), cheese, pepper, and mushroom for Shaun and Lu:
I ate this:
Plus one more piece. It was really good.
While I was preparing it Lu munched on garbanzo beans (she LOVED those), peppers, and tomatoes. At dinner, she didn’t like the mushrooms or pepperoni but liked everything else. After dinner I gave her her first Oreo. We have some leftover from Shaun’s Oreo Pie at Thanksgiving and this book I’m reading says to not make any food taboo. So I gave her an Oreo. She HATED it. She took one bite, spit it out and asked for her normal cookie. Which is so healthy many say it’s not a cookie 😉 No refined sugars, all organic, no milk or soy, and whole wheat. We’ll see if this sticks.
