In my food world today, I didn't get the fruits and veggies I was aiming for and this morning it dawned on me why. First, most of the fruit is in the freezer and therefore, out of sight, out of mind. Totally forgot it was there. I woke up late and didn't have time to fix the oatmeal - which is where my morning fruit usually is. I probably could've put some frozen berries in the fridge overnight for my cereal - there's a thought. Anyway, around dinner time, I realized my lack of anything green today, so I added a side salad.
Here's the details
B: Uncle Sam Whole Berry Flakes & Flax Seed w/unsweetened vanilla almond milk
L: Turkey breast with mayo on Joseph's Lavash
S: Choc. PB Cups (from last night - yummo!)
D: Pizza using Joseph's Pita w/sausage & turkey pepperoni and salad with cheese, ranch & turkey bacon bits
S: Chocolate Cake in a Mug (THM Recipe) w/ chocolate cream cheese frosting
New for today is a healthy coffee creamer. I've been trying to find a coffee creamer to replace the last of the sugar in my life that resides in my coffee creamer. I've found 2 that work with the THM lifestyle. Here are the recipes:
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1 doonk (1/32 tsp) stevia extract
1 and 3/4 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
1 scoop Whey Protein Powder
1 tsp stevia/erythritol blend
Stir into coffee, sweeten more if needed with on-plan sweetener
1 mug brewed coffee
1-2 tsp unsalted butter (pref grassfed)
1-2 tsp coconut oil (pref MCT)
vanilla or other flavoring (optional)
sweetener to taste
Blend 'til creamy (in a blender)
NOTE: Shake and carefully unscrew lid to release air a few times if making in Bullet-style blender BEFORE actually blending to avoid messes.
So uh… it appears that I walked away from my computer and didn't post this on Friday night. Ah well, here is a rare Sunday post for your perusal… I may as well include my weekend meals too:

Oh and something else I've been doing… Sippers!! These are between meal drinks that help keep you full and offer great health benefits to boot.
Here's one I've particularly enjoyed:
Tazo's Passion Tea brewed with sweetener added (I make a 2-quart pitcher and share that with the fam)
In a quart jar, pour a half a jar of Passion Tea. Add 2 TBS Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/2 tsp powdered ginger and additional sweetener if you like (I've been adding about four drops of liquid stevia). Stir. Add ice to raise the liquid level to the top. Enjoy!

Movie quote: "The best place to meet a guy is at the supermarket. You don't need to waste a lot of time there, either. You see a guy holding a list, you know he's married. He's in the frozen food section carrying a small basket, he's single. I like to hang out by the fruits and vegetables, there's a better chance of getting a guy who's healthy."
