Refreshed

Good morning!

I have to say, I am feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after getting 9 hours of sleep last night. My body has been telling me it is tired lately. What better way to cure that then sleep and skipping the gym!

Other than that, not much to report on my front. Same old, same old for me today. But I did manage to pack both breakfast and lunch. Lately, as you know, this has been a struggle! And better yet, I actually want to eat them. :mrgreen:

So, as I was searching through our mess of cupboards last night, I found this.

Okay, so totally not the healthiest thing around, but hey, it was an impulse by a few months back, and I’m not going to throw it away. 😉

However, to make these gems a bit healthier, instead of adding for the 1/3 cup of oil it called for, I used canned pumpkin. Who needs oil when you have pumpkin??

Mmm mm mmmm, look at the strusel topping. I am packing two of these for breakfast this morning, they are on the small side.

Along with an overripe, juicy pear. Just how I like them.

Lunch is, of course, leftovers from last night. Who else loves leftovers? Seriously, all you have to do is put food in a container, and bam, you have your lunch. Usually I think food always tastes way better the next day anyway!

We’ve got leftover butternut squash with the tofu in the middle. Surrounding the squash is a can, yep, a whole can, of green beans. Soooo good.

There of course will be some miscellaneous snacks throughout the day. I am a total grazer.

I’m off to work, have a wonderful Thursday!

What is your eating schedule like?  Do you stick to three meals a day?  Or do you have smaller meals with snacks in between?  Please share! I stick to three smaller meals a day with two snacks and a dessert.  Slow and steady meals throughout the day wins the race for me.

  1. I’m like you. Most of the time I need a few snacks to get me through the day!

  2. oooo love the streusel adaptation!! great idea, pumpkin always makes things better right? i agree, leftovers rock. i am missing my leftovers this week actually bc we are getting lunches each day here, which is nice if I end up liking what they have but not so nice if not! food snob? 😉

  3. When I was working 9-5 I was very set in my eating schedule (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert). Now that I am home all day I eat breakfast but kind of snack my way through lunch and then eat dinner and dessert. Some days I don’t really eat lunch at all and will just eat an earlier dinner. Anyway, your addition to those muffins looks great. good thinking! And BTW you need to get some of Angela’s bars asap. You will not be disappointed 😉

  4. the cinnamon streusel muffins are SOOOO dangerous (and sooooo good!)

  5. I am totally a grazer! Especially on days like today when I’m studying all day.

  6. I eat leftovers pretty much every day. Love it!

  7. SO jealous of your sleepies! I hope to get some good sleep in this weekend. I love making packaged mixes on occasion- they’re great in a pinch. Love the pumpkin sub!

  8. I love eating smaller meals throughout the day (though sometimes mine ain’t so small.. woops! ;)) gives me more to look forward to 🙂

  9. i eat three meals and two snacks! and jealous of your sleep- i am in desperate neeed of some
