This morning I had to teach three sessions. It was a rainy day, I'd rather stay at home and sleep. But my dear students were waiting for me. Obviously the attendance is lower than usual and I don't blame them. As it was a small group, I had more chat with them than usual. A couple of students were interested in going to grad school, so I gave them advice on what to do from now on and what to expect to find in grad school. Sharing my experience with them reminded me my passion about economics, the main reason for my being here, the reason that encouraged me to live in a country that I had no friend/family, to adapt to a new life style. After reminding me that, my mind was clearer, less stressed, more optimistic, because I'm doing what I do because I wanted to, I chose to. It was my decision to work hard because this is one of my passion in life.
Now back to eats and munchies.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup almond breeze vanilla
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbsp wheat berries
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp dry cranberries
- 1 tbsp flax meal
Satisfying and filling (I needed it because I didn't have time for snack)
Back home around 12.30pm, I was starving. So first I had a cup of almond breeze and then prepared a quick lunch which included 1/2 steak of baked salmon that I made the other day, stir-fry veggies and shitake and 1/2 cup of rice. I also made a seaweed soup.
Colorful and delicious!!!
As dessert: baked kabocha and a marroc.
I was productive this afternoon in term of reading papers and having snacks. hahha..... munchies come
munchies 1: 1/2 cup 2% fage + 1 tbsp wheat berries + cinnamon
munchies 2: 1 slice of Ezekiel, half with laughing cow, half with PB
munchies 3: 1 big spoon of PB
munchies 4: another slice of Ezekiel with PB
munchies 5: final slice of Ezekiel
You can see that I was craving breads today~~~ I think if I had more Ezekiel, I'd have more.
Obviously after all these munchies, no appetite for dinner again. So, I had the rest of my seaweed soup added some spinach and mushrooms.
For Savanna I made a quesadilla and a veggie bean soup. For the quesadilla I used 1 Tj's rice tortilla, parmesean cheese, mozzarella cheese, spinach and mushroom. For the soup, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 cup of frozen veggies, 1 cup black beans, S+P, cumin, cilantro and achiote seasoning of Goya.
She seemed to enjoy them a lot~
Dessert: the rest of Fage with cinnamon.
I have one question for you. I never thought that yogurt had saturated fat until Erin mentioned it to me. Is it bad the saturated fat from Fage? Because I have 2% fage and just realized that it has 15% DV of saturated fat, is it too much?
