Oh boy do I have big news today! I finally have a trip planned for Spring Break!! ^_^ I’ve never gone anywhere for Spring Break in my entire life. In fact, I remember watching an entire season of The Apprentice one spring break in High School and that was the most eventful one I can think of… SO I just booked my flights to fly on down to sunny (hopefully) San Diego to spend a week with my sister, Win! I figured why not use my tax return on something completely fun and family-oriented. Yes I did consider instead flying home to Missoula, MT but then I thought about how not very nice it is there in March. =P
Anyway, it’s been hard to contain my excitement but I’ll try to tell you about my food!
I woke up around 10am and made myself an easy breakfast of popped amaranth with toasted walnuts, fresh blueberries, and ground flax. I still love this cereal, but Weetabix is still calling my name. When I find myself in Trader Joe’s again I’ll probably snag another box. >.>
After breakfast I hit the gym for a 60 minute hill stationary bike ride where I finished my library book, Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver, and followed it with strength training.
Eventually I was hungry for lunch after doing a bit of homework. I had Triple Grain Waldorf Salad with homemade dill pickles, freshly roasted beets, and a small cup of nonfat Greek yogurt topped with raspberry jam and a few roasted peanuts. There was nothing on my plate I didn’t love. ^_^
After lunch the babies piled on my lap while I studied the endocrine system for my A&P exam tomorrow. I enjoyed a mug of hot cocoa while I did this because I was freezing! We need the nice weather to return.
Around 5pm I was getting pretty hungry but still had an hour and a half to wait for Chase to get home. I ended up munching on this All Natural Q.Bel Crispy Dark Chocolate Wafer Bar. It was interesting…It did the job for my sweet tooth but I wouldn’t say I’d go out of my way to eat one of these.
Finally around 7pm it was time for dinner. I’d thawed out the last of those BBQ baked beans I’d made weeks ago and had a portion with some brown rice, roasted beets, and quick steamed maple collard greens. It all went really well together and made me a complete protein. ^_^ Beans + Rice.
Later though I was unsatisfied and really craving a tiny bowl of Life cereal with frozen mixed berries. Why does Life taste soo good!? I keep looking at the ingredient list (really not the worst thing I’ve seen but certainly not great) trying to figure it out but I can’t!
Anywho, do any of you have plans for Spring Break? Or anyone have suggestions for what to do/see/eat in San Diego?? I will for sure be hitting up my favorite The Mission restaurant!! (Heidi are you game?)
