Woke up this morning feeling well. I did pop another Sudafed for good measure tho. Also woke up to a miserable rainy day. But it said it was warm out and I thought maybe it was only sprinkling so didn’t wear me boots. Hence my wet ankles. I despise when the bottom of your pants get wet in the rain. It make my whole body feel cold.
For breakfast some more oats. This time I tried just the multi grain to see how it was. And I made them Festive Holiday Oats:
-1/4 c multi grain oat
-1 tbsp splenda brown sugar blend
-sprinkle of green cupcake topping crystal things to make it festive
-handful frozen pomegranate seeds
Red and green! These were delicious. I def like these oats better then the regular rolled oats. Not as well as steel cut but steel cut you don’t get as big a serving for your calories. I also am loving these frozen pom seeds I bought. Frozen fruit on hot oats is amazing.
Snack was again the other half of the banana.
I also ate this ricotta that coworker Leslie was raving about and was a stickler with making Me take a pic ;)
For lunch I went to the work freezer and perused. I knew I was going to have a noodle dish tonight and I only had 2 non noodle lean cuisines. I whipped out this Amy’s cheese enchilada.
It had corn and black beans. And i spiced it up with some of my hottest hot sauce: crazy mother puckers liquid lava. Very spicy. I usae like 6 drops.
Unfortunately the work microwave (which has the power of the surface of the sun), booked it so all the cheese oozed out onto the rest of the stuff. It was still delicious. This had a little more calories then I would normally eat for a weekday lunch (about 370) but it was very satisfying and oozing with yummy cheese and enchilada sauce.
I also had this serving of salad with tomatoes and spring mix donated by coworker Brian.
I missed my apple snack because I was in a meeting but I dis still have my vita top hiding in a poinsettia in the office.
There you are! (yes I did sneak and take this pc in a high traffic area of my office. I’m that cool.)
Fitness: normal Wednesday routine. Taught kickboxing. There were lts of people in there today and it was a hard class.
Dinner I had big plans haha. I bought these tofu shirataki noodles a couple weeks ago(they are hard to find around here).
I decided to do an easier version of hungry girl’s tuna noodle casserole.
-1 bag tofu shirataki noodle
-1 can tuna
-1 can, or in my case box, of condensed cream of mushroom soup (I use tj portobello mushroom soup-delish!)
-4 tbsp parmesan cheese
-1/2 bag of green beans
-lots of crushed red pepper
I drained, rinsed, and patted dry the tofu shirataki. I microwaved the green beans for 3 mins in a bowl with a little water. I drained the tuna and added tuna, soup, and crushed red pepper to noodles and stirred it all up. 4 mins in the microwave. Half way stir and add Parmesan to top. Enjoy! The total calories is about 460. It’s a huge bowl! I only ate half.
This was the first time I’ve made anything like this. It’s actually only the second time I’ve eaten tofu shirataki. An I am not sure I’ve ever even had tuna noodle casserole.
My 2 cents on Tofu shirataki:
1. They smell weird out if the package
2. The consistency is a little strange. Chewier then regular spaghetti.
3. I love love love the amount you can eat for so few calories! A whole bag has 40 cals- amazing.
4. They have some fiber and protein as well. Bonus.
I enjoyed the dish it was a ton of food and I still get to have dessert!
Which was this sour box of Raisels! Sour in a good way. These are golden raisins covered in citric acid (the powder they put on sour patch kids- I would eat anything covered in that!). There are a few flavors. The lemon are a fav.
Lauren and I also put up our tree! Yay Christmas. Haha… Our tree is a little sad. Took us 5 mins to put up.
