I didn’t realize how carbo-loaded my eats were today until I wrote this post! I ❤ carbs. I used all the carb-y energy to power me through my day!
My day started with two big cups of coffee and a midterm. Not the ideal way to start off the week, but the test went well, and I had it out of the way by 9 a.m.!
After my test, I went back home to make breakfast.
With summer right around the corner, delicious berries are finally starting to reappear on store shelves, and I could not be more excited!
My oats powered me through a few hours of studying for Friday’s midterm and a great run at the gym that went a little something like this…
I loved this routine…definitely had me sweatin’!
Post-gym, I came back home to refuel with lunch. I have actually eaten this lunch two days in a row because it was so good!
I topped a bed of lettuce with steamed spinach, roasted eggplant, a pasta-salad of sorts made with garbanzo beans and feta and a Gardein Chick’n Scallopini filet.
I have long been a fan of Gardein meatless products becuase they are a great source of complete protein (14 grams in this baby!) free of cholesterol and fat, but this was my first time trying this particular product. I loved it! The taste was delicious and the texture was great. Just 3 minutes per side in an oiled pan and you are ready to go!
A few more hours of work, and I headed back to campus for class. Whoever thought that scheduling classes at night was a good idea is a jerk. I hate night classes, and they shouldn’t be allowed! I have actually been pretty lucky in avoiding night classes throughout college, so I just have to suck this one up. Plus, I don’t have many more left before graduating next month!
After class I headed home for the night. Dinner was a repeat of Saturday’s Shrimp and Veggie Stir-Fry.
It was just as good the second time around!
Off to relax a bit…good night!
