gray day~~~ coco munchies chocolates

Another rainy day.....grrrrrrrrrrrrrr......I hate it! Look the gray sky. I woke up good but when I saw how horrible was the day...I just can't cheer me up!
Breakfast combo
  • 1/8 cup bulgur
  • 1/4 oat bran
  • 1/3 almond breeze vanilla
  • 2/3 water (all above soaked last night)
  • 1/2 large banana
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp PB
I used to like this combo..but today I didn't enjoy it much.... maybe because I was in bad mood. I had a sliced apple right after because even my stomach was mind needed something more satisfying.
I tried to do something productive this morning.....but failed... I read and read but couldn't concentrate 100%, and I felt even worse!
Mid-morning I had a cup of powdered soy milk
and first marroc of the day
Lunch was noodle with frozen veggies and Tj's turkey meatball. That was yummy~~~ these meatballs are amazing!

Dessert 1: Fage with cinnamon
Dessert 2: Fage with 1/4 cup wheat berries.
Dessert 3: marroc!
I spent afternoon in campus attending lecture and holding office hour. Un-productivity continued. Went to a spin class and the instructor was 10 minutes late!!!!!! grrrrrrrrrr....... can my day be worse????? Anyway, it was an unsatisfying workout (only 35min)! Instead of making me feeling better, I felt even worse.
When I came back home I was craving carbs, so I had 1 Tj's pumpkin seeds bread and 1 Ezekiel with laughing cow!
Obviously after these, my appetite for dinner was gone. But I still needed something comforting. I think the reason is that I was in bad mood, anxious and angry with myself all day I need something to heal my soul. After thinking 10 sec I decided to make a huge bowl of my favorite oatmeal for dinner: kabocha squash about 2 cups or more with 1/3 oats.
So creamy, so sweet! Love it!

Savanna is coming back for dinner, so I prepared her scrambled egg with tomatoes. Last time, some of you asked me recipe. So, here it goes.
2 beaten eggs with pinch of salt
heat the oil and pour the eggs and stir constantly to make the scrambled egg. Half way through, pour 1/2 canned diced tomatoes
Continue stirring for 1 or 2 minutes more. Add 1 tbsp of sugar
Stir 2 minutes more and voila
It took me 5-6 min to make it. Can't be more simple, right?

I also made a black fungus salad. Just hydrate it, S+P and red pepper flakes.
I just had my pum-oatmeal and some black fungus.
Dessert was more chocolate.
1 marroc
and 1 "Dos Corazones".
Today's quote: "Un castillo de ilusiones yo construi al verte, para nombrarte mi Reina y que tu... vivas en mi". (When I saw you I constructed a castle, to name you as my Queen, to live in me) So romantic!

okay. I'm going to bed early tonight to finish this awful day~~~~~ Hope you guys had a better day~

OMG the chocolates are all SOOO GOOD!!! I can see why you're obsessed with them :]

And I LOOOOVE tomatoes + eggs, but I have them with scallions and I use fresh tomatoes :]

Wow, I've never tried to turkey meatballs but next time I'm at trader joes I'm looking for them for sure! Are they in the frozen section?

Hope your day tomorrow is sunny- if only in attitude ;)

Well I think your breakfast bowl sounds deelish. Too bad you didn't enjoy it. I need to try bulgur one of these days. That and SQUASH in my oats. Well other than pumpkin of course, I've done THAT combo.
And wheatberries in yogurt. That's a great combo. I don't know why I haven't soaked any wheatberries in a while. They are sitting patiently in the cupboard waiting for me...

Rainy days are just terrible if you're not in a great mood to begin with. Hopefully you have a sunnier day tomorrow!

ahh! I love how you eat your oatmeal with chopsticks!! I eat and cook everything with chopsticks too (like pasta, for instance; I grew up in Tokyo)Hope the upcoming weekend makes you feel better!
In regards to the yoga question, last night I did the 60 minutes Power Vinyasa flow 1 with Dawnelle. I think it is worth downloading, because it's only a few dollars! (a dvd would cost like, $20) I have three downloads that I rotate around. I find that yoga doesn't get boring, because everyday, I can feel a change, a difference, an improvement, or a different stiffness. I really enjoy how different my practice feels each time, even though the sequence might be the same.
Email me if you have any Qs! Happy Friday!!!
