Yesterday between the geese and a murder of crows ( at least I think they were crows), our walk was a very NOISY experience ! It entered my head that perhaps in the annimal kingdom our apartment complex is some kind of avian amphitheater and one of these feathered creatures was perhaps the equivilant of our Miley Cirus or something. Could not definately say yes, and worst still I could not definately say no !
We began the day with a happy mess- half cup cottage cheese, one cup frozen berries and one cup Special K cereal with a container of probiotic yogert and coffee. The kid in me loves to mix stuff in bowls it seems. Fun option at 390 calories
Lunch was leftover black forest ham with swiss cheese on Arnolds, celery cucumber and carrot with a 100 calorie pack of Sun Chips and Diet Soda- a welcome 430 calories after a morning that included questions like what is the difference between an ocean and a sea ( has to do with land borders and size ).
At snacktime I wanted something different, so I made two Aldi's fit and active rice cakes with whipped berry cottage cheese and a Fiber One bar for 280 calories. I just felt in a really crunchy, grainy mood.
Dimmer was two oven fried chicken thighs , garlic parmesagn roast potatoes, green beans and a tossed salad for 405 calories. Normally we eat chicken breast, but sometimes you find chicken thighs for a lesser price. While higher in fat, they are also very high in B Vitamins and other nutrients, so it can do your body good to switch every now and then. Evening felt like a crash landing goose, as it had been a really busy day for both hubby and I . I got out our Haloween decorations, planned next weeks menu and shopping list, did some of my own studies, homeschool and housework. I grabbed my usual evening snack of pudding, a Fiber Plus Bar and an apple for 320 calories, bringing the days total to 1825. And strange thing- I do not have a lot of gas from eating two of these high fiber bars. Why is that ??
