Some days are fun. Some days are smooth as molasses. Some days are a piece of cake. Then again… some days aren’t. Yesterday was not one of those days.
I knew it was going to be a doozie, so I did my hip exercises instead of a hard workout in the morning. Hey, it was still something productive that allowed me to drink my coffee. (multitasking) I then powered up with a hemp and raspberry spinach smoothie.
I powered up again with this “marathon mix.” It’s high calorie, but it’s delicious and nutritious. Win.
Lunch was a salad packed with strawberries, mushrooms, radishes, and cucumber – all topped with Annie’s Woodstock dressing. The salad and the dressing were both great, but a different dressing might have made for a better pairing.
For snack, I planned to have an apple and a hard boiled egg, but I thought this day needed some fun, or at least a fun-size treat. (I still had the apple too.)
I got home, ate a rice cake and sweated it out while dinner cooked. It’s amazing how even a quick workout can change your mood. Anyway, dinner’s ugly, but it was good. Sweet potatoes are a total comfort food for me. Well, sweet potatoes and fun-size treats… among other things.
I may have also went for a little organic chocolate ice cream for dessert. It was full-fat, so super creamy, but surprisingly relatively low in calories. After today – I deserved it!
What are your comfort foods (the healthy or not-so-healthy ones)?
