I have big plans to catch up on grey’s and ugly betty after work with some nice ice on my ankle. it is not so happy with me today. I keep drifting off into the ideas of this afternoon…. it is pizza friday so i plan on making the dough and doing the above while it rises! can’t wait!
This morning I had a 2 oz piece of Great Harvest honey wheat bread with farmer’s market raspberry preserves. I know that I will be having a lot of carbs today in the form of this bread + pizza night, but I really just need to get my fix of it. And as long as I am listening to my body I don’t really care.
Lunch was the last 1/2 serving of umjaddarah (the other half of last night’s forfeited serving from my cousin). Keeping it light on the cals to save room for pizza night!
Thought of the day:
Today is my brother’s birthday, so in typical office fashion (we all work together) I ran over to Stop and Shop to buy a birthday cake. We always go into the conference room and yell over to the birthday employee that they must come right away for an emergency meeting (in a stern voice)! it’s so funny. Anyway, at S&S I asked what the difference was between the peanut butter cake and the Reese’s cake. The woman stared blankly at me and said she didn’t know. okkkkkkkay. So then I asked if the cake was vanilla, chocolate, or peanut butter based.. still she didn’t know. Finally I asked where the cakes were baked and she said (insert gasp) MAINE. I had always assumed they were baked on the premises, with real flour and butter and such. I was in shock. What is the point in having the cakes come from so far, when there are plenty of capable bakers so close? Gross! Anyway, it just gets me thinking that really, nothing is ever as it seems. If Michael Pollan said to “eat food. mostly plants. not too much” then I say “ask questions. lots of them. know where your food comes from”
