sleepy but excited little girl~~~~~~~~~

This will be a quick post because I have to finish up my work before going to bed early. My Daddy will arrive tomorrow morning, I have to be at the airport at 6.30am!

Okay, about food. This morning I had tropical flavor oatmeal..... (a little soupy though)
  • 1/3 pre-made steel cuts
  • 1/3 almond breeze vanilla
  • 1/3 cup of chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 large banana
  • coconut flakes
  • cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
I love the mix of flavor of this combo, the sweetness of banana and citrus of pineapple! so yummy~~~~~
When I finish the bowl, I felt needing something more.....so more citrus....an orange.
I woke up sleepy this morning, so two hours after the breakfast I wasn't awake yet! so second cup of coffee with a bowl of EnjoyLife granola.
Two hours later, still not awake....... more drink and snack
Mate and little cup of pumpkin seeds (new cup! isn't it cute?)
Lunch was baked tofu (marinated with BBQ sauce, S+P, tomatoes paste, gram marsala), 1 poached egg with sauce and some aduki rice with veggies heated together with gram marsala, S+P. Quick, simple but colorful and delicious meal....

Dessert was baked butternut squash with cinnamon
After lunch I went to campus for a lecture and then office hour. (still sleepy!!!)

When I came back I had a chopped apple with 1/4 cottage cheese and 1 slice of Ezekiel with laughing cow!!!

I didn't really need snack but I continued sleepy, so more food to keep me awake. (isn't the other way around? that more food makes you sleepy? )

For dinner, I made a squash oatmeal with 1/3 oats and some baked squash. Sauteed spinach with mushrooms with garlic, S+P and a pinch of soy sauce. Light dinner since I snacked too much during the day and wasn't hungry at all.

But I did need a big and satisfying dessert. 1 fage and 1 cup of raspberries. OH~~~~~~~~~ Love how creamy it is and of course its color!!!
and peppermint tea
Tomorrow will be a busy day. Pick up my Dad, teach 3 discussion sessions right away, help my friend to buy a bed since she's moving in this weekend......do groceries........and BE with my DADDY~~~~ So excited....and so sleepy!!! Fortunately it's night and I can go to sleep soon~~~

Tomorrow is Halloween!!!!! Can't wait to see what you guys do tomorrow to celebrate it!

well.... it wasn't a short post!

Love EVERYTHING. Especially noteworthy is all the SQUASH. I can't wait to bake up the butternut that's sitting in my cupboard. Mmmm.

I responded to your inquiry about my portion sizes on my blog but I'll sum it up again quick here for ya. I pick, snack and graze all the time. So probably half of what goes in my mouth doesn't get any picture or mention on my blog haha ;)
