Evening! I hope everybody’s first day of September went smoothly. Time flies, where did the summer go??
This afternoon my hunger kicked in like a mad man. The hunger took me by surprise since my lunch contained a lot of fiber, protein, carbs and healthy fats. Usually salads fill me up pretty nicely too. Next time I should add some extra umph if I think about it. Maybe some black beans, avocado or grilled chicken.What is your go-to salad that fills you right up?
I was a bad blogger this afternoon guys 😦 I forgot to photograph my snacks. They were an apple as well as probably two servings of trail mix? It fixed the old hunger problem right away!
After work I had to run to Comcast to return some equipment from my old digs. I was dreading going to Comcast, because usually I have nothing but problems with any kind of utility or cable company. But I am happy to report, it was easy breezy tonight. When I got home, I had some cheese and crackers. (I get on kicks, you’ll probably see this as a pre-dinner snack for awhile!)
It was a long day at work today, so I was in the mood for some kind of comforting food. We had some cheddar turkey sausages in the fridge, so I decided to spin those into a healthy meal. I cooked the sausage on my griddler for about 7 minutes, diced it up, and placed it on top of a wrap with lettuce and tomato.
The wrap is made from whole grains and contains a whopping 32% of your daily fiber needs. Score and score! This wrap turned out to have protein, fiber and veggies (yay for vitamins!). It was also packed with flavor. The sausages were bursting with cheddar flavor, I would definitely buy these again (they were Johnsonville brand if anybody is interested).
To round out the meal, I had leftover parmesan risotto and a few Old Dutch potato chips. These are pretty stellar and worth the calories. They are crunchy and perfectly salted. I always dip my plain flavored potato chips in ketchup, I usually get really odd stares when I do this, but it is so.darn.good. Anybody else do this?
I have been lacking in the fruit department lately, so on the side I cut up some cantaloupe, a peach and red grapes for a fruit salad. This particular cantaloupe may have been the best I’ve had all summer. It was perfectly ripe and juicy.
And of course condiments to dip the wrap in…
I am on peanut butter withdrawl today, so it will be incorporated into dessert in some fashion ;).
Today Kath had a story about how she got started blogging. I found it very helpful as a new blogger that she explained her success as a blogger wasn’t overnight. Although that was obviously a given, I, as a new blogger, have great ambitions and want the world RIGHT AWAY! So it gave me a reality check and made me realize that, in time, I can get there. The power of positive thoughts! 🙂
How did you get started blogging? What is your bloggie story?
