Hey hey hey! Is it hot enough outside for ya? It sure is here! The past week has been such summer weather and today we actually hit 100 degrees! Cra crayyy! But I wasn't too worried because I was nannying all day which meant hanging out by the pool and inside with the AC ;)
I also met with my therapist today which went well. I can't say it enough but I am truly glad and blessed I finally found a therapist that I am satisfied with :) We talked a lot about how I need to be in control of ED and not let ED control me. It is important I be active rather than passive in recovery. I need to want to recover rather than just sitting around hoping and wishing to recover and the only person who can do this is ME!
Moving onto my eats lately!
More yoatgurt! I love the combination of hot oatmeal and cold yogurt together, especially topped with banana and peanut butter.Can't forget about the yogurt messes obvs.
I have been having lots of Larabars as a morning snack.
The new Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabar that just came out!I thought this bar was very good. I mean let's be real how could anything with peanut butter and chocolate not be good! Although this bar was very crumbly and did not hold together well.Apple Pie LarabarKashi Chocolate Turtle Roll! This bar was chewy and delish filled with chocolate, caramel, pecans, crisps, and whole grains.
So I guess you can say I am lovin' Annie's Cheddar Bunnies ;)
Subway for lunch two days in a row! But hey whose counting?!Turkey & swiss with lettuce and tomatoes.Dinner last night was the Panera Strawberry & Poppyseed Salad with freshly baked bread. This is such a nice and refreshing salad for the summertime!
This afternoon I went to Trader Joe's with my mom and I picked up this gem along with some sushi, salad, yogurt, and Clif Bars.
This would be Trader Joe's Mideast Feast! For the past two times I shopped at TJ's I have been eyeing this meal but this afternoon I actually bought it! I have seen a lot of bloggers eat and rave about Meditteranean food and it looks great and I just really wanted to try it out myself...so that is what I did!
This was a big step for buying this meal because ED kind of freaked out since I have never really had a Mediterranean meal before and he kept telling me I shouldn't buy it because it was a mixed meal rather than having separate proteins, carbs, fats, etc. If that makes any sense to you?!
ED also was telling me I wasn't sure of how many calories, carbs, fat, protein, etc it had in it and if it fit into my meal plan and blah blah blah and all in all it actually fit my meal plan pretty well ;) ED was just totally making me freak out for no reason at all! So in the end I just bought it and ate it for dinner tonight :) Take that ED!
This meal had a pita, falafel balls, hummus, tabbouli, and tahini sauce. This was my first time ever trying falafel balls and they were great and I really liked them. I decided not to make a pita sandwich but rather dip the pitas into the hummus and then eat everything else separatly to truly see what I did and didn not like. Although I was NOT a big fan of the tabbouli at all...yuck! So overall I love this meal and can't wait to have Mediterranean food again in the future and now I know what I like and do not like. You never know until you try it, right?!
Have a great night and keep cool!
