It All Evens Out

Post title comes from the ironic zen-ness to my day.  Going on my trip made this week a living hell, but going on my trip also made me beyond happy and thrilled, so it all kind of evens out.  Similar sitch (adore that word) with my meals.

I ran out the door without breakfast and ended up stress-eating 5 fun sized candy bars from my desk (no pic, bag was too heavy for a camera).  Clearly on the lower end of healthy breakfasts, but my veggierific lunch evened things out!

Baby carrots with a Tbsp of blue cheese dressing and a Odwalla Pumpkin Smoothie!  (my celery had become more chewy then crunchy – gross!).  Lunch was yummy and put a smile on my face, but could have been more filling.

I grabbed dinner the minute I got home at 6pm.

I doctored up our leftovers with the rest of our pine nuts, a dash of salt, a tsp of evoo, and a liberal sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

A slightly more grown up version of the original dish.  I imagine when I have kids they’ll be served dish 1 and A and I will eat dish 2; I don’t ever picture myself making 2 meals a night.  If you are feeding your kids a healthy diet (and you are keeping a healthy diet) there’s no reason the two shouldn’t be able to converge.

I’m still a bit hungry, and know I’ll be up late, so I’m having on having a snack later.  Everyone have a productive evening!

*****Updated to add – I did in fact have a snack, a broccoli roll from Pinos; Yum!

    Oh yes the fun is always worth it though! Nice addition of the veggies to the mac and cheese. When I have kids they will come out loving veggies, beans and hummus! Yeah right. 🙂

    I have that coke plus once and it made me ill!

    Hangry Pants – hehe, I’m sure that because I grew up liking healthy food I will spawn Devil Dog inhaling veggie refusers… always seems to work like that! I can’t believe you don’t like the plus, do you just not drink much soda in general? I’m pretty soda obsessed and it’s probably my all time favorite.

    Candy breakfast is better than no breakfast at all!

    Dinner looks yummy – I love diet coke plus 😀

    You make a good point about what you feed your kids and yourself!

    Maggie – a fellow plus fan; Yay! I feel like the blog world does not share my obsession.
