oat bran!

this morning i decided to try oat bran. i didn't know whether i'd like this or not, so i only bought a small amount (i the bulk section at whole foods). verdict? very yummy... sort of a nuttier/creamier version of oatmeal. and at $.89/lb., i can buy some whenever i like.

1/2 cup oat bran with 1/2 cup soymilk, (and 1/2 cup water), and 1 banana, finished off with a small amount of brown sugar, 1/2 a chopped up walnut-date KIND bar, and a spoonful of almond butter
** 2 starch, 1 fruit, 1/2 dairy, 1 protein, 2 other **

i have a hunch that i will not be eating a morning snack this morning, as this was very filling. but it's slightly more "energy dense" than some of my other breakfasts anyway, so 'tsall good.

i packed the most gourmet looking lunch today:

(leftover) ratatouille atop polenta cakes, topped off with some crumbled goat cheese. i think this will reheat nicely. i'll probably get a few comments in the kitchen, but that's ok... they'll just be jealous!

** 2 starch, 2 veg,1 dairy, 1 other **

and a few strawberries
** 1/2 fruit **

i have a yogurt and some cheese/crackers at work from yesterday. i'll probably end up eating 1 but not both. tonight i'm going to another knitting/crochet meetup group. it's from 6:30-8:30 but this time, instead of having it at starbucks (where you can't get dinner so that makes for a bit of a challenge maintaining a normal meal schedule), they are having it at panera! i'm having more "dinner" for lunch today anyway, so this will be perfect.
