First off: Did I have a Dairy Queen small cherry dipped cone for dinner last night? o.O Yes I did. Sometimes you just got to give into a craving. Secondly: Was it everything I’d been dreaming about for weeks? Yes! I loved every bite and didn’t feel guilty about a thing. Third: Did I wake up super super hungry this morning? Yes! Ice cream really isn’t that filling.
I got out of bed around the new 9am I was so hungry! I decided to make a pumpkin version of my breakfast yesterday. Looks like oatmeal, right? It’s not! It’s actually Bob’s Red Mill’s 10 Grain Hot Cereal! 10-Grain Cereal is made from stone ground high protein hard red wheat, rye, triticale, oat bran, oats, corn, barley, soy beans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed.
I thought it might end up like a big bowl of mush but I actually really enjoyed the texture! It’s somewhat chewy but still creamy. I mixed it with some canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and ground flax. I topped it with a scoop of coconut pecan frosting (don’t ask what in the world I was thinking!) and some craisins.
Turns out frosting can’t replace the texture of nut butter. I vow to never put frosting in my breakfast again!!
For lunch I was really craving a burger! Vegan Boca burger topped with cheese, pickle, and avocado on a toasted sesame bun and BBQ sauce. On the side I sautéed some Brussels sprouts, more than my stomach could fit! I ended up sharing them with Chase. ❤
I really need to get to Trader Joe’s because I have absolutely no fruit to eat to finish off my meal! I always need to end on a sweet note even if I’m stuffed. >.< So to stop me from snacking (on what!? We have no snacks!) I made myself a cup of sugar-free cocoa.
Oddly enough, around 5pm, my energy took a real dive. I felt so drowsy I was sick. I could hardly focus. The only thing that sounded appealing was peanut butter. So I made myself a small PB&J quesadilla with a leftover fajita tortilla, almond butter, and strawberry jam. Delicious! Maybe my whole no-nut thing every other day isn’t what my body wants. =/
Dinner tonight was brought to us by: Chase! He made the entire thing. =D Fried rice (mix of leftover white and brown) with frozen veggies, eggs, and soy sauce. I sprinkled some sunflower seeds on top for some crunch.
The fried rice was pretty good but it really needed some onion element. It just lacked that zing!
So..I have a confession. I really wanted cake for dinner tonight. O.O I know, I know. I don’t know why I’ve been having these off the wall unhealthy food cravings!
Luckily, Chase is smarter than me (sometimes!) and made us dinner with vegetables. But for dessert I gave in and thawed a German chocolate cupcake and added the coconut pecan frosting. ~.^ Perfection. The cake was a little bit drier since it had been frozen, but it was still quiet enjoyable. Honestly, I want another one.
Tomorrow is a start of a new week so I can get myself back in order! Have my workout scheduled planned and am definitely going to the store tomorrow!
How do you make fried rice?
