And sugar! And caffeine!! OMG!!!
Breakfast: granola bar. Lunch: giant cup of fro-yo from Forty Carrots (a.k.a. the best yogurt on the planet). Snack: Venti iced coffee. Other snack: jelly beans.
Tatatatatatatatatata. That’s my fingers drumming on the counter all afternoon at work.
Even though I don’t really consider myself a health blogger, I have to admit, the day was looking pretty shameful when I headed home from work and started contemplating dinner. I needed a real meal. Hmm….what to do with a boring-ass chicken breast?
Chicken salad! This was super simple to whip up and packed with protein (thanks to swapping the traditional mayo for Greek yogurt) and flavor. (Recipe here!) On a sandwich thin with some baked chips and a sliced apple, it hit the spot!
Now it’s time for some couch time. The hubs is still away, and guess who thinks he is man of the house now?
Parker is completely shameless when it comes to demanding attention.
Today’s EAT: I think this Chicken Yogurt Salad will become a summertime staple around here! So easy to whip up a big batch and then graze on it for a few days – on crackers, as a sandwich filler, or straight outta the bowl.
Nummy – and healthy! What did I do before Greek yogurt?
Today’s DRINK: What’s a night chillin’ solo with the kitties without come Chardonnay?
This Chateau Lafayette Reneau chard is a little too sweet, but not terrible. I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to buy it again, though.
Today’s RUN: I ran home from work tonight – through the park and around the lower loop, then down the Hudson greenway. About 7 miles total, I think. Not sure – I didn’t have a watch. Other than the fact that is was rather damp outside with the humidity, it was a pleasant run!
Amazing how just yesterday I was cursing the entire sport of running and vowing to never do it again. Race headcase: that’s me.
Today’s QUESTION: What’s your favorite sugary treat? I am on such a huge fro-yo kick lately, it ain’t even funny. At least it’s somewhat healthy!
