I saw Smoked Wheat in Super C today and the name made me laugh. I'd never heard of it before so I just had to buy it! I put it in a sandwich with lettuce, vegenaise and mustard on whole wheat bread. It was pretty good for what it was. I was never a fan of meat sandwiches so I wouldn't say it's the best sandwich filler I've ever had, but definitely something to try!
Speaking of Super C, why do they suck so much? That grocery store had nothing! Of course, Billy was able to find plenty of junk food. But do they have canned black beans? No! Do they have canned green chilies? No! Do they have green split peas? No! Do they have anything good? No! I was so mad, I think Billy was about to tell me to calm down. To be fair, I think I was saying rather loudly: "They have no selection/products here! Let's go, I'm never coming back!" They don't have many vegetarian things, no soy ice cream, no good soy milk, etc. I was quite upset, and ended up going to my regular Independent Grocer instead, where they usually have everything I need except Silk. Oh, Super C does carry Lick's veggie burgers though, so I suppose I'll have to go back if I ever want to buy them. They are quite yummy.
Today I made Sarah's Green Split Pea soup from La Dolce Vegan. I am so into soups right now. This one was great! It had so much flavour and was hearty enough to be a meal in itself, with a side of broccoli.
Now I'll have some food for lunch or dinner on Wednesday. For dinner tomorrow I made Sherri's Black Bean chili from LDV as well. I didn't quite taste it, just a few bites to check the rice, but it seems spicy as hell! I hope its not too spicy for me to eat. I knew I shouldn't have used the whole can of chilies! I'll post a picture and review it tomorrow after I eat it!
Confession time: the munchies hit big time yesterday while I was doing homework. I had a whole wheat bagel with pb and chocolate chips (one of my fave snacks) and then a big spoon of pb with more chocolate chips. This wouldn't be too bad, but I also used a bagel to make a sandwich for lunch. So I limited the rest of my food for the day, and I didn't let it ruin my resolve. Just wanted to get it off my chest.
I've decided to not eat after 8 pm. Or at least to make a big effort not to. That might be hard with three night labs in a row, but I'm gonna try! I hope it helps. I definitely usually eat more junk food later at night. And on Oprah's DVD yesterday her trainer was saying that those little/big pangs we get to nibble/pig out is our body going into our fat stores and using them up. We can either let them be or feed it, which only makes us fatter.
Did I mention my body is rebelling against yesterday's skating? My abs and back are in quite some pain...but I like it :D
My goals for the week:
-eat lots of veggies every day
-do not eat after 8 pm
