Repetition, Repetition

If it’s good the first time, it’ll be good a second time around, right? I think that’s why I had another biscuit after dinner, as well as some other food repetitions.

Pomegranate Chobani With Dark Chocolate

It’d been too long since I had this combination: Pomegranate Chobani with 2/5 of my favorite dark chocolate bar. And talk about an antioxidant kapow! Between rich pomegranate extract and cacao, let the flavanoids roll in. It was so good, I had to have another.

This time it was a Pomegranate Chobani with this orange dark chocolate; something about the pomegranate flavor with a little citrus is amazing; try adding a little orange zest to your Chobani next time and I promise it will blow your mind!

This morning, another “conundrum”: Besides the fact that I had eaten all my pomegranate Chobanis, I just wasn’t craving yogurt, or protein, or anything but carbs and nut butter. But an unbalanced meal once and a while would never hurt; and it’s all healthy, right?

Oatmeal With 365 Creamy

Healthy, creamy, and dreamy.

What 3 foods could you always eat? I would say oats, peanut butter, and dark chocolate. And because the first two are so cheap, I don’t mind splurging on the good chocolate 😀

So Good I Could Cry

Posted on May 19, 2010. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

What a wonderful response to my freshmen review this morning.

But that’s not what my title is referring to. It’s referring mostly to this:

Sushi And Fudge

Sushi And Fudge

Sushi and fudge on a Wednesday for lunch. I think a tear just went into my wasabi(I’m joking, of course; I hate wasabi). I picked out this sushi at Whole Foods the other day and ended up not wanting it for dinner. I love when the Genji people make a custom order just for me 🙂 I’ve been craving raw salmon for too long; I’m surprised I didn’t end up curled in a ball in the corner clutching a can of salmon. This hit the perfect spot.

And what’s more extravagant than fudge? My refrigerator will never be without fudge again, methinks.

Starbucks Extra Bold Decaf

And this! Oh my, words cannot express my enjoyment. You see, when we went to the auction a few weeks ago, my parents won more Starbucks coffee than you can dream of in a raffle. I’ve been weening off of it, moving to teccino, iced tea, or just water. But today I held nothing back. Absolutely dreamy.

Green Beans

Green Beans

My hunger was still up even without running so I noshed on sting beans while doing some reflecting. You see, even though I haven’t ran the past 2 days, today felt like my first true “rest” day in too long. Without schoolwork and with crappy weather, I gave myself full license to do nothing. If I had on a pedometer, it’d read about an 8. And that gave me time to dream up things like oatmeal. Dreamy, creamy oatmeal…

Pumpkin Flax Oatmeal

  • Oats
  • Crunchy peanut butter
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Molasses

Oh, hello; this was a recreation of one of my favorite granolas and it did not disappoint. I forgot what a sweet and distinctive flavor molasses has.

Gluten-Free Biscuits

Gluten-Free Biscuits

OK, I did do a little work today. I whipped out the food processor and got baking. I blame this post which had me craving KFC biscuits–sweet, flaky, butter biscuits. I used this recipe and followed it to a T, but since I didn’t have a biscuit cutter, I kept them square and made 8.

Protein Hummus

I also whipped up some Mama Pea inspired protein hummus. Just chickpeas, tofu, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and lemon juice. So simple!

Hummus Salad With Raw Veggies And Hummus Chips

Gluten-Free Biscuit

Dinner was a simple hummus salad with raw veggies and hummus chips. On the side, of coarse, was a fresh biscuit patted with earth balance. Did I die and go to carb heaven tonight? I wish I had a marathon to eat for tomorrow; I don’t, but I’ll happily eat like I do. After this, I threw another one in the microwave and ate that, too. Who can resist biscuits when they’re fresh?

Did you ever love KFC? I remember eating there 1 a week in my childhood. Probably not the best habit, huh? My favorite thing on their menu was their thick cut, seasoned fries, and then their biscuits were a close second. And their mac n’ cheese–Yum! I actually didn’t care so much for the chicken thinking back.
