hummus hump day!

hola blogettes! like the title? yeah me too. find out what it is all about at the end.

loved reading about the grown-up versions of classic meals you guys make! here are a few ideas:

  • a LOT of you make a grown up mac&cheese with added veggies, bread crumbs, meats/faux meats, etc.
  • a LOT of you also do a grown up PB&J with different preserves, real fruit, fun nut butters and fancy breads.
  • a LOT of you also do a grown up grilled cheese with fancy cheeses and added veggies.
  • jessie adds tofu to her pudding.
  • taylor makes brie nachos.
  • tessa eats grown up candy like super dark chocolate.

it was also nice to read all the different opinions on sweeteners, both artificial and natural.  i forgot to answer that and say that i do not use sweeteners ever, i like my coffee black and my oatmeal unsweetened, but i will add some fruit in there from time to time. that is why i am a little nervous about all this nunaturals product on my hands, i need to find some ways to use it!  but i do use sugars in baking so i figure that is the best way.  if anyone has suggestions send them my way.  i know i am going to whip up a recipe from therese and one from annabel here in the near future!

okee dokee, onto today!

meal 1: almond chiaseed protein muffin @ 8:30 AM

9-8-09 037

this is a recycled photo from yesterday, but you can check out the recipe page for these dudes here and the nutrition stats worked out to be (per muffin): 100 calories, 9g protein, 9g carbs, 2g fat! pretty stellar.

work was busy today! what else is new? my boss even had the nerve to tell me i am over-worked. um.. yeah.. thanks boss, well aware.

that one muffin obv did not hold me over long, i was busy all morning and had planned to make waffles but by the time i had a chance to eat, it was lunch!

meal 2: cottage cheese+chicken+ranch seasoning & veggies+hummus & 2 mini pitas @ 11:30 AM

9-9-09 001

so, guess what? i bought the container of sabra chipotle hummus on august 17th (thank you food blog records) and polished it off today. i think that says something about my hummus self control!

mushrooms sure are weird looking. but oh so tasty!

so the fact that i did not have a quality breakfast shined through later when i was already hungry again at 2 o’clock.  i held out a bit because i knew i was working until 5 and then eventually celebrated waffle wednesday after all!

meal 3: protein waffles @ 2:30 PM

9-9-09 007

i ate them dry. the recipe can be found here. i could eat these dry all day long they have so much cinnamon flavor!

i went home and changed for the gym and grabbed a little something before heading out the door…

meal 4: chocolate banana protein shake @ 5:45 PM

drank it in the car on the way to el gymnasio. i don’t even think that is a word, in any language.

i took a flat out wrap and slathered a wedge of laughing cow light cheese on it, i had cooked up some turkey burger with some fennel and also sautéed some onions, green bell peppers & mushrooms.. i put the turkey burger and veggies atop the laughing cow layer and baked it for about 6 minutes.

1. Favorite flavor? It would have to be a combo one that I’m going to count as one flavor – triple-layer hummus from TJ’s

2. Nope, but I’mgoing to have one next week with Brittany from Eating Bird Food (IM SO EXCITED!!!)

p.s. so many awesome ladies in this post DAYUM.
