Happy Sunday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend (or long weekend, like me). It's such a gloomy day I'm glad I can just stay home and relax today. Maybe I'll throw on some sweatpants and watch a movie! For breakfast this morning I had 2 slices of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a banana. It was simple but hit the spot. Later on in the morning I had a Larabar Jocalat Bar as a snack. I like these bars because they have no added sugar and are made with just a few natural ingredients. I don't think I've ever mentioned it, but you'll notice that I eat a lot of snacks. This is because I try and eat something every 2-3 hours. Eating often keeps your metabolism constantly going and supplies sufficient energy throughout the day. This doesn't mean I eat huge meals every 2-3 hours, just sometimes something small and well-balanced to keep me going. Here is a link that can explain this further. For lunch I made a quick quesadilla. I used a multi-grain wrap, folded it in half, filled it with chicken and cheese and cooked it on the stove. I used soy mozzarella cheese because I think it melts better, but regular cheese tastes just as great. I also cut up some apple slices to go with it. Then in the afternoon I had a packet of organic oatmeal with raisins to hold me over until dinner.
