I’m here!

Bonjour homies! So sorry it has taken me so long for another update. I’ve been supah busy! Last week and the beginning of this week I’ve been working on the fashion pages for the magazine I work for, so all my time has been spent styling a photo shoot, picking out clothes, going through clothes and photos, choosing locations and returning clothes to showrooms. I love being busy, so I’m not complaining!

I’ve only snapped a few foodie-shots the past couple of days since most of my eats have either been really sporadic or the same as what I always eat (i.e. the same thing you have seen on this blog forevah!) so I’ve skipped taking pictures of it. I have taken some pics though, so here’s some of what I’ve been eating lately.

Hugh salad and corn on the cob for dinner on Sunday.

Hugh salad and corn on the cob for dinner on Sunday.

On Sunday evening I made a big salad and had some new type of veggie balls in it. They were broccoli-something-or-other and I’m a huge fan of broccoli so I expected big things from this, turned out to be a bit of a dissapointment though. They were sweet in some odd way, so didn’t go with what I had imagined. The corn on the cob was the best and I’ve been having a cob with dinner almost every day lately. Other than the veggie balls there was also this in the salad: lettuce, 1/2 tomato, 1 beet, steamed broccoli, chunky salsa, cucumber and carrot.

Dinner after working all day! It was what I was craving!

Monday was the photo shoot and I got up super early, had a quick breakfast and then was off to get to work styling it all. We were working all day long and I only snacked on an apple quickly during the day. I got home past 7 pm to find that mom had been to the bakery and got some mini-baguettes! I threw together the above: mini-baguette with laughing cow cheese and cucumber, whole grain flakes with peach (1/4 of he peach on the side) and soy milk and a cup of honey vanilla chamomile tea. Hit the spot!

Big fruitbowl evening snack!

Here’s something I’ve been enjoying a bit lately as well. For an evening snack I’ve been putting together a big bowl of fruit to snack on. It’s so yum! I’ve been getting these big juicy peaches at the grocery store because they’re in season now. SO good! In the picture above is a cup of Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice tea and a bowl of some watermelon, 1/2 apple and a peach.

New tea!

New tea!

I picked up a new flavor of Celestial Seasonings tea yesterday, Bengal Spice. Yet another great flavor, very strong cinnamon flavor, smells divine!

And that’s about it for now. Tomorrow I’m meeting my brother for coffee and then in the evening going to meet my friend for coffee or we’re going to the movies to see Public Enemies. I’ve been trying to stop by your blogs and comment but like I said, I’ve been so busy so sorry for the lack of comments!


Peanut butter cinnamon

With an apple in my tummy I headed out to Bikram yoga this morning. I was feeling completely unmotivated and uninspired the whole way to Bikram and having a hard time focusing during class today. I don’t know why. It was with one of the toughest teachers, who is also my favorite. It’s hard to explain why her class is tougher than the other ones (especially since it’s always the exact same poses and timing). I guess the way she talks just motivates me more. I always get my butt kicked in her classes.

I got home hungry as a hippo, as usual after Bikram. I had envisioned the following on my way home:

12:55pm Lunch-ish. A whole grain organic tortilla made a wrap with tofu, baby spinach, tomato and alfalfa sprouts. On the side I had a new super favorite – a whole grain quinoa rice cracker with a little bit of peanut butter and cinnamon. Holy yum!

Of course I had to have seconds of that rice cracker with peanut butter and cinnamon.

2:35pm Snack. Feeling hungry only a few hours later, I whipped up a sweet snack. A pink lady apple, along with my mini-bowl that I filled with strawberries (on the bottom) a tablespoon of strawberry rice cream and topped with some raspberries. Nice one.

6:05pm Dinner. I was frustrated about dinner and couldn’t think of anything to make. I finally settled for a classic – a plain salad (lettuce, tomato, carrot, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, baby spinach, sundried tomatoes and a tbs of hummus) with two slices rye bread topped with Tofutti Sour Supreme and some little sprouts.

9pm Evening snack. I was definitely hungry for an evening snack, I’ve actually been rather hungry all day but feeling totally uninspired or frustrated about what to eat. For an evening snack I went with what I know I’m loving right now – more rice crackers with peanut butter and cinnamon. And two lovely fresh strawberries on the side.
