I ran out of Nature's Path Optimum Slim cereal recently. I loved that stuff. I ate it with cereal; I ate it with yogurt. I finished eating it and wanted to eat more even though I knew its fibre content would be enough to keep me full for hours. Anyway, I was too cheap to pay $7 for another box (I originally bought it when it was on sale for $3) so instead I opted for Weetabix Alpen cereal and let me tell you, it is NO substitute for the OS. The Alpen is sugar and salt-free so maybe I can pass it onto my dad, hee hee.
Today's breakfast was supposed to be today's work snacks. Triscuit whole grain crackers, brie cheese, pecans, grapes and apple crisp. I ate everything except for some pecans and grapes. I ate those later in the day along with some leftover watermelon cubes.Lunch was mom's stir-fried vermicelli noodles with carrots, Iceberg lettuce (??) and sliced pork (??).I'm really not sure about the lettuce or pork. I really don't think it's cabbage but lettuce? In a noodle stir-fry? It tasted good though. The pork was a little sketchy. I didn't eat my entire bowl. Instead I ate half and then ate this Red Delicious:Tonight's dinner involved a few different things. As an "appetizer" I had some liver and onions. I know, gross! But my parents have me digesting all kinds of stuff in an effort to boost my immune system. In addition to the below (I swear there's a piece of liver there somewhere), I'm taking cod liver oil which I remember from my childhood and it still tastes as bad as it did back then. Anyway, my liver and onions and is actually onions with a bit of liver because this is the only way I'll eat liver. I hate that stuff. I take after my dad who just flat out refuses to eat it but because I know it's (probably) good for me, I'll consume it with copious amounts of caramelized onions.
And after that I was too full to actually eat dinner so I decided to make dessert instead! I meant to follow this recipe from Chocolate-Covered Katie, however, my reading skills weren't on par today and so I kind of botched the measurements. This is what my Fudge Babies looked like:And here's the recipe...
Star-shaped Fudge Babies
- 61g raw cashews
- 13 dates (pits removed)
- 6g cocoa powder
Okay well here is tonight's dinner:And as is always the case, my eyes are bigger than my stomach so I will probably only end up eating half of this. After that it's time for Desperate Housewives-watching with my mom, a shower and bedtime.
