Good morning (err…afternoon?!?) all!!!  I have an exciting announcement to make…Tanya over at iateapie.net has featured me on her site to share my Healthy Foodie Favorite Products of 2008! I am so very excited and flattered that Tanya contacted me, and have discovered that her site is a fabulous resource of product reviews.  You all should hop over there to check out her reviews of all low fat, low carb, reduced sugar, whole grain, natural, organic or high protein products that she can get her hands on!  Thank you Tanya!!!  🙂

So, last night I caved to my craving for eggnog.  It is definitely my holiday must-have treat, but luckily, after a glass (or 3 or 6) during the first week of December I am GOOD for the rest of the year. Eggnog is one of those things that I can only handle a very small amount of, thankfully since it is certainly not light in the calorie/fat area…!


Breakfast:  Bowl of oats…yay!  So much more filling and satisfying than yesterday’s (non-breakfast) cookie.  This standard bowl featured

  • 1 cup prepared rolled oats
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • sprinkling of pom seeds


I enjoyed my long weekend immensely, but I am excited to be back into my regular routine and healthy eats.

Lunch:  I’ve felt like my lunches have been lacking in the protein department lately, so I decided to mash up some chickpeas this morning with a little extra virgin OO, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.


I spread about 1/4 of the mashed chickpeas into a whole wheat pita, and filled it up with leftover roasted veggies.  On the side, the last of the roasted veggies and mashed sweet potatoes.  I just finished lunch, and am really full after just 1/2 the pita and all of the extra veggies/sweet potatoes. We’ll see if I’m hungry for the other 1/2 a bit later…


Snack:  My trusty Pink Lady apple.  And maybe a piece of maple banana corn bread too…  I brought about 1/2 the loaf into the office for my co-workers and it has been a BIG HIT so far, so we’ll see if there is any left for me this afternoon…


I hope you all have a fabulous afternoon!
