To say that I was hungry all day long is an understatement. I think it had to do with 2 things. Swimming yesterday was one, and you can probably guess the other ;)
I should have known not to try something different for breakfast. It kept me pretty full but not like my oats!
These are the tortillas I made my tortilla pizza with last night. SO good. Well, They’re not at all like a fluffy flour tortilla. They are heartier and a little tough. I like the texture + flavor, but straight out of the fridge I’m not sure I would like them as much. We’ll see! I have toasted them each time with the ingredients piled on.
This was a GREAT breakfast in theory. It had a decent amount of calories in comparison to my oats. Like I have said before, I don’t count calories, but in comparing how full it kept me I’m taking the calorie count into consideration.
Typical bowl of oats = ~400-450
Large orange + tortilla with pnut butter, almond butter, 1 small banana, chia seeds, cinnamon and Heather’s jam = ~400-450
This was DEElicious. Lately I have been craving oranges. I toasted this tortilla with all of the ingredients and you know I LOVE melty pnut butter and warm bananas are delicious too. Anywho…
They also have about the same fat/protein content. What I realize is that although I’m hungry about 2-3hrs after a huge bowl of oats, I think in some way it still keeps me fuller, longer. I feel like I don’t need as much at my next meal to be full again. Does this make sense? ;) When I eat breakfasts not containing oats, I feel like I consume more throughout the day.
However, I should test this more accurately on a day when my hunger isn’t as CRAZED.
Ooooooh!!! Good news that I can share!! Chris has a full time job!!! We are more than excited. :) Thanks for all of your thoughts + kind words during this stressful waiting game. Now, hopefully something will come my way at some point soon!
I bought these bagels yesterday because they have 19 grams of protein and 13g of fiber and I just couldn’t believe it. Also, the ingredient list was something that sounded like it could be homemade. The protein + fiber was not added fiber…like you see infused in yogurt + cereal, etc. It was from REAL ingredients. So I sent one off for with the huz on his way to WORK [hehehe]. He was my guinea pig for these. I toasted it and topped with PB. When he got home he said it was “okay but a little dry.” I asked if he would want another and he said “probably not.” He did however confirm that he would try it as a pizza bagel ;) I’ll let you know when I try them out!
MUNCH CRUNCH LUNCH: romaine + pepper + avocado + fresh mozz + brocc + homemade balsamic
The rest of lunch: Leftover Millet Stuffed Pepper + black eyed peas mixed with tomato paste + water
Tried this little bar because I had a good coupon. I had about 1/4 of it. [also had more choco covere pom seeds] The fruits were definitely noticeable. I liked it but wouldn’t buy again.
Then…more eating happened…2eggs + slice of toast…few other things….HUN-GUH-Reeeeeeee
When Chris got home from WORK :) we headed to climb on fake rocks at the gym. Definitely a good time. It’s really satisfying when you see yourself improve each time you go, and it’s SO much fun to do together.
Peeeeeeeeeetzaaaaaaaaaah :) I got the fresh whole grain dough from WF, per usual. I have made pizza dough a lot in the past, but just haven’t messed with it in CO yet. I’m a little nervous the altitude will mess it up.
My side: yellow peppers : roasted garlic : mozz : pepperjack
Chris’s side: bacon : jalapenos : yellow pepper : mozz : pepperjack
There may have been a stray bite or 2 of bacon on my side as well ;)
With a PILE of steamed broccoli. MMMmmm
I’m really tired + so is my body. GOODnight!!
My parents wanted to say THANK YOU for all of their comments about their 35th anniversary. They were so excited about them :)
