My morning started at 5:45am today – I have a 10-page essay to write for my Intro to Cultures of Asia class, and I wanted to make a good dent on it today.
Breakfast began with a bowl of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs topped with organic raw pumpkin seeds and unsweetened almond milk, with an organic banana on the side.
Of course, coffee was very necessary this morning given 1) my early wake-up call and 2) my sleep-inducing essay to write.
Enter: Starbucks tall pikes place with an inch of steamed soy.
YES! The steamed soy topper returns… I can only live with so much black coffee.
I wanted to get 1/5 of my essay completed this morning, and by 10am I had done just that! I love accomplishing my goals! 🙂
When lunch rolled around, I was in the mood for olives, so I opened up a can I recently bought at Whole Foods to throw in a wrap today.
I used to HATE black olives with a passion when I was little. Then one day I tried them again in chop suey mix my mom made and fell in love. There were times when I actually had my mom buy a large can for me to snack on plain! Although I’m not nearly as inclined to choose them today, I definitely still enjoy the taste!
Lunch ended up being a Food for Life Brown Rice Tortilla topped with Daiya cheddar style shreds, organic greens, and organic black olives. On the side, I had sliced organic cucumbers, activia light, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.
It’s a little chillier outside today in Madison (about 40*F now), but I’m still heading out for a walk! I’ll take it what I can get!
Happy FRIIIIDAYYYYY everyone!!!
