Mighty Maple

Friday, March 26, 2010

Happy Friday! I appreciate all the advice you gave me yesterday on my post :) I definitely think posting each day in my recovery does keep me very accountable!

This morning was all about this beauty...PB & Co. MIGHTY MAPLE peanut butter! I have had this jar for quite some time and I just finally got around to opening it this morning! Just like all the other PB & Co. peanut butters I have tried, this one did not let me down! This peanut butter smelled and tasted just like maple and was very sweet! The people over at Pb & Co. are geniuses for coming up with these amazing flavors!I had Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal with the mightly maple peanut butter and the two went together so well! Honey & Maple=heavenly :)My yogurt mess was Vanilla Brown Cow yogurt, 1 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine and a sliced up banana with a dollup of PB & Co. Mighty Maple peanut butter with milk on the side.Love love love only having ONE class on Fridays at 11:30! My morning snack during class was a Chocolate milk with a bag of peanuts, a lil switch up! Kind of a weird combo, but hey it worked for me;)Lunch was a turkey & swiss whole wheat wrap, bag of pretzels, a pear, and milk. For the past few days I have been having a craving for pears, they are soo good when they are really ripe!Afternoon snack was a Bluberry Crisp Clif Bar. Dinner tonight was eaten back in the dorm with the girls. I had Shrimp Scampi over Linguine and a piece of bread with buttah and milk.

I remember this past summer when I went out to eat with my fam and I ordered the Shrimp Scampi...but with OUT the sauce, so it was basically shrimp with spaghetti and no sauce at all! Yeah I know totally not normal. When my mom found out I ordered it without the sauce she got very upset with me because she just wanted me to eat normal because I was supposed to be gaining weight and I was restricting and avoiding. But I will tell you tonight I had the shrimp scampi WITH the sauce!

That night was probably the worst restaurant experience I ever had. I was out to eat with my fam, grandma, cousins, aunts, and uncles and it was just a disaster because my mom was mad at me for what I ordered and I felt like everyone at the table was staring at me the whole time to see what I was and was not eating. So annoying!

But I must say going out to eat has gotten a lot better and I have gotten so much more comfortbale eating out at restaraunts. That was one of the first times eating out after I got out of in-patient so it was extremely hard but after going out to restaurants more and more and getting comfortable eating out it will get a lot easier, I promise! It still is a bit hard at times, but for the most part I am pretty comfortable eating out and plus it is so much fun. I now look forward to eating out and I have learned to enjoy it :)

Well I am gonna go get ready for the night and then hit the campus with the girls!

Weird question, but I thought your school didn't offer meat on Fridays!

On another note, Mighty Maple is one of my FAVORITES for pb toast!! Especially for breakfast- it's like pancakes!

Jenna said...

Laura- your right my school doesn't serve meat on fridays because of
lent so they only serve fish etc. They don't consider it to be a meat!

Jenna said...

Mighty maps defs sounds delish on toast!!

Jenna said...

Oh did u mean my turkey wrap?! It was some kind of benedicts day today so they were allowed to serve some meat!

No offense or anything, but I don't know what you mean when you said that you have gotten better about eating out at restaurants because I never see you eating out unless it's panera or subway! You should try eating out more!

Jenna said...

yes, there are definitely restaraunts i am more comfortbale with. my i have gone out to panera bread, subway, d'angelos, olive garden, and chilis!!

Meg said...

Next time you go out to Panera you've gotta try the salmon salad! But I already told you that, haha.

Hope you enjoyed your night out!
