Posts Tagged ‘Soy Milk’

I woke up and went for a brisk walk around the neighborhood. It usually takes me about an hour or 45 minutes… depending on how fast I go. And I think length wise it’s about a 2 mile walk.

THEN…. Mike and I were set to go to the Farmers Market down in Flagler Beach. It’s about a 15 minute drive from the house to the Beach Market… and on our way down I decided to detour over to the Starbucks.

I know! I know!.. I had a craving that came over me and I indulged it. I had a Tall Iced Mocha with Soy Milk… boy did it taste good.!

Then we headed over to the beach and picked up some vegetables. I love coming home after the farmers market, because I fill up the basket in front of the kitchen sink on the counter with all the goodies and there are so many rich, bright colors to look at. I love that!!!!

This afternoon, Mike prepared a mid day feast for us. He made his famous Grilled Potatoes & Onions dish and then he tried a new recipe he got from his friend in California.

Saturday Lunch on LakeIt’s a Tomato, Cucumber & Onion Salad. And then we set the table on the patio and sat outside with a beautiful view of the lake behind the house. I sat across from Mike facing the ocean and saw a light blue calm ocean through the houses on beachside.

Boy, when I woke up it hurt to take my first step out of bed. My calves got such a workout yesterday; I didn’t realize it until I was walking away from the bed. I wanted to hit Pilates again this morning, but thought better of that idea. 🙂

So instead, I did something better (as I type facetiously).  I got a Starbucks Tall Pumpkin Spiced Iced Latte with Soy Milk instead. There’s 5 or 600 calories of sugar and fat I can’t get back!

Garden Green Salad

For lunch I made a Garden Green Salad with a bunch of great Vegetables in it. Today, I added Raisins and an Oil & White Balsamic Vinegar Dressing.

Ingredients:

1-Bag of Spring Salad

4 Mushrooms

4 Green Onions

1 Avocado

1 Orange Bell Pepper

1 Tomato

1/4Cup Raisins

Directions: Wash the Spinach and Baby Greens from the Salad Mix Bag. Wash and chop up the Vegetables. Add the Raisins and Dressing and serve.  

Oil & Vinegar Dressing:

Ingredients:

2 Tbls. Olive Oil

2 Tbls. White Balsamic Vinegar

I’ve got to say, my experimenting is getting better and better. I had just a little bit the Whole Grain Rigatoni left, so I heated it up and had that as well.

Assorted Danish Cake

What's Left of Assorted Danish Cake

And I hate to say this, or even document it, but I had yet some more morsels of the Danish Assorted Cake Mike bought at Costco. This is what was left of the Assorted Danish Cake after I got my hands on it. Both Mike and I had a part to play in polishing off the tin of Danish. It’s ruining everything I’ve done so far by going to the Pilates classes this week.! But I’m happy to write, Mike ate the last of the Danish, so thankfully there are no more temptations.!!!

We pushed through all day Friday… and into the when. When we finally got into Potomac, MD at 1am. It was rough!!! I was sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose every five seconds. And to top it off, I was driving. 😦

We left Albuquerque, NM Thursday morning with temperatures in the teens… Yikes! It had been way too long since I was in temps that cold. But Mike was driving and we made it into Amarillo as the sun started to peak out of the clouds and warm things up.

We stopped off at Wendy’s for a Baked Potato and Green Salad. I immediately ate the Baked Potato and held off on the Green Salad until later…. we ended up sleeping in Little Rock, Arkansas.

From which we left early in the A.M. Friday morning… there was a Starbucks right next door to the Hotel, and I couldn’t resist the temptation of a Pumpkin Spiced Latte with Soy Milk…. From there we pushed into Tennessee where we stopped for lunch. I wanted so much to eat fast food, but we actually found a Panera Bread place. That’s where I warmed right up with a Vegetable Soup and Green Salad with an Apple on the side. That was a very refreshing lunch, from which I got up to take my empty plates to the trash, when I hit the dividing wall and dropped the soup bowl on the floor. It made the loudes crash… for which I was completely imbarressed.

Moving on,… for the rest of the journey to drove in the dark and only stopped for gas and to switch drivers. I ate my Apple from lunch and had some Almonds and drank alot of water. Finally, we made it!!!
