daily eats: 10.30.12

My food from Tuesday might go down in history as the ugliest day of food. EVER! You’ve been warned…

Oh, and apparently I shop at Trader Joe’s a lot. :)

Workout: 45 minute spin class.

Beverage: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2. (And a side of man with sword…the sword was NOT a Halloween prop).

Breakfast: Banana Custard Oats ala The Healthy Everythingtarian. I used 1/2 cup oats + 1 cup water + 1.5 eggs + 1/2 banana and topped it with 1 Tbsp peanut butter. This breakfast is amazing. Not in terms of looks, but in terms of flavor and its staying power.

Snack/treat/sugar: coffee + coconut creamer and 1/2 beignet. We had some beignets and chicory coffee at the office  and I had to sample.

Lunch: 1 cup turkey chili (from Trader Joe’s) + greek salad: romaine + cucumber + hearts of palm + kalamata olives + feta cheese + dressing. Lunch was tasty, but I don’t think I’ll get the chili again.

Snack: baked lentil chips + mediterranean greek yogurt dip

Dinner: 2 masala veggie burgers (Trader Joe’s) + steamed green beans + raw veggies

Dessert: 2 squares dark chocolate

Now, the real important question is – did you dress up for Halloween? What were you?

This was my sorry attempt…and my brother is here!

      I liked the chips – they are kind of airy but nice and crunchy. :) Dip didn’t hold a candle to the kale & spinach.

    There’s no shame in eating TJ’s-inspired meals multiple times a day! I do the same thing, especially after a big shop. Everything there is irresistibly delicious–it’s hard NOT to eat what’s stocked in the house. ;) Do you recommend the Greek yogurt dip?

    That chili looks delish actually – you have me craving some now.
    Love the face painting. I didn’t dress up this year, I know…I’m lame. I had a costume (80s themed) but ended up not going out and we don’t get any trick or treaters.

    Wait, what? A man with a sword??? Do tell!

    The first San Antonio Trader Joes just opened. I’m giving it another week for the rush to die down, and then it’s on. :)

    I just wore my orange skinny crops with a black shirt while trick or treating with the kids. Someday I may dress up, but I’m not really crafty or creative and most of the store costumes are sexy and/or scary which isn’t exactly family trick or treating appropriate.

    We just got a Trader Joe’s in Lexington this summer. I still get excited every time I get to go! I was just there tonight! You definitely underestimated the appeal of your eats. It all looks great! :) No dressing up here, but I did get to see a bunch of cute kiddos in their costumes while handing out candy.
