ok, i drank EIGHT oz. of beer last night. so no, i can't be hungover. but lets just say i did NOT sleep well, and woke up with a headache. i'm wondering if i've developed some sort of alcohol sensitivity? because i've always been a lightweight but c'mon, 2/3 of a bottle of beer?

at least i woke up hungry for breakfast.

mix pb puffins, heritage flakes, vanilla soymilk, and the last of my frozen cherries. the cherries i buy are usually $2.99 at whole foods (which is a good price as is) but they were on sale for $1.99 this week, which meant they were all sold out.
** 2 starch, 1 dairy, 1 fruit **

lunch packed:

perhaps my favorite lunch - banana and almond butter. i use a heavy hand with the almond butter and cut the banana into thick slices (entire banana used). and a plum. who says every lunch has to include veggies?
** 3 starch, 2 fruit, 1 protein, 1 other **

i'm planning ahead for snacks/dinner, as i won't get home until 9 or so tonight-- i'm teaching another crochet class. i decided that instead of eating dinner @ quarter to 6 (which usually means i end up skipping my p.m. snack because the meals would be too close together), i will have a larger p.m. snack and then will dine on easy leftovers when i get home. so i packed:

morning snack - wallaby yogurt
afternoon snack - muesli bar plus some sort of milk/drink from whole foods (next door to yarn store where i teach).

this should hold me over pretty well until dinner
** 1 dairy / 1 starch, 1 protein, 1 other, 1 dairy **
oh! and i washed my lunchbag, so it looks like new again!

i love this bag - lots of room!


  1. You work in a yarn store, right next to a WF? I am jealous. Your food looks GOOD - and did you just post that pic of yourself? I never noticed it before. It's cute. :)

  2. well i only work there around 1x/week (if that) because i teach crochet classes in the evenings. and yes, i just put up the picture... figured it's OK to be not quite as anonymous! =)
