Dogs need love too

Teriyaki beef for lunch
all those veggies come w. the Teriyaki beef-- makes my life so much more simpler :)

sauteed peppers w. evoo, salt and pepper. The sweetness of the peppers really shine through w. the minimal seasoning.
After lunch, I spent most of the rainy afternoon finishing The Help. It was such a GREAT book. I highly recommend it and btw.. grab some tissues. Either I'm PMS'ing or it really is that much of a tear jerker!

more Bighams..
I made sure to prepare lots and lots of veggies so I wouldn't feel a huge void of no carbs at dinner :( I usually eat something like pasta or brown rice w. my main but its time to change that rule!!
I added some spinach to the Moroccan chicken tagine for more substance

sauteed veggies in evoo, sesame oil, soy sauce, and siracha

T's plate: I added some brown rice to his plate because I think its unwise for him since he's so big (in a good way) and he needs those extra calories!
The trick is to make yourself think you're eating a lot of food. Technically this is a big plate but half of it is veggies!
Dogs need love too yo!
don't mind that huge mess she's making on the couch, argh!!!

After dinner, I watched another movie.. I'm on some movie kick or somethin..
It was actually kind of enjoyable.. I wouldn't watch it again per say but I thought it was light hearted and cute!
I also made a breakfast cookie for a snack tomorrow before I teach zumba. Recipe courtesy of:
  • 1/3 scoop oats
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein whey
  • Mix together into a crumbly mixture then add----
  • 1/8 skim milk
  • Toppings: raisins, 2 squares of dark chocolate broken into little pieces
Spread evenly on a small plate and then pop it in the fridge overnight. I've tried this before last year and it was a nice sweet breakfast. Its even more perfect as an afternoon sweet treat.

T made me breakfast this morning because I slept in til almost 9!! I feel like I never do that.. Holy crap.
sunny side up with cinnamon and all spice. Yum!
Check out that duck egg! The yolk was definitely creamier and bigger than our usual eggs.

Agenda: zumba, take Noms to the park, zumba teach, salsa class
