All My Eatin’

by spiceaholic on November 2, 2009

Yup, I actually managed to take pictures of my food today! Well, like 80% of it, but still!

Let’s start the day off  .  .  .


I usually don’t drink coffee, but Mr. Spice was actually up and he’d made some and it smelled good and it was freezing in the kitchen, so I stole some. Plus it was a good excuse to have some of this yummy creamer! I want to marry this flavor and I’m so tempted to sneak a sip or two straight from the container.


Doesn’t that look good? This is one of my favorite breakfast standbys. Now that it’s getting colder, I like having warm breakfasts and this hits the spot. This is my favorite breakfast sandwich. The key ingredients are Kraft 2% pepperjack cheese and Taco Bell Hot Sauce. Today I used a Jennie-O turkey breakfast sausage patty (it’s only 60 calories!) but long ago I would only make this with the Morningstar breakfast sausage patties. I use either a light english muffin, a light hamburger bun, an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin, or light bread. Whatever I have at home.




Today’s lunch was a combo of what I had at home and what I had at work. This morning I packed some carrot slices, strawberries, broccoli slaw, almonds, and string cheese. At lunch, I took a Smart Ones Spicy Szechwan Vegetables and Chicken (I LOVE these when I’m craving Chinese food!) and mixed in the broccoli slaw when heating it up. The box looks all dark because I was hiding beside the fridge to take the picture. Silly me. The bowl is the Smart Ones and my extra veggies all mixed up together and looking very delicious. I was caught as I snapped this picture, rats!

The almonds and string cheese were for later in the afternoon. Unfortunately the almonds tasted bad, like they went rancid, so I chucked them after choking down a couple and had a spoon of PB instead. And a glass of Almond Breeze (unsweetened chocolate, yum!).  Forgot to get pics of the PB and almond milk.


By the time I got home after sitting in traffic, I was hungry again. In the interest of time and gnawing tummies, we just ate the rest of the Halloween pasta bake I made Saturday night. It was just ground turkey breast cooked in garlic, oregano, pizza seasoning, crushed tomatoes with basil, the last of my pasta sauce, and some Morningstar sausage-style crumbles, then mixed with Halloween pasta and topped with mozzarella cheese and baked. Yum yum. I took pity on the cucumber sitting in the veggie drawer and sliced some of it up and sprinkled some Greek seasoning on top.

After wolfing down dinner, Mr. Spice flipped through channels while I read a little and kicked butt answering some Teen Jeopardy questions.


So after all that mental exercise, I was still a little hungry so I decided to have some Cocoa Puffs with some soymilk. Don’t you love the box?

And that is that!

Your eats are soooooo much better than mine! For one, you don’t eat an insane amount of calorific desserts. Two, you eat veggies!
I should take a pointer or two from you and change my eating.

Haha, well I’m really not a model eater! For one thing, my portions can get big, especially if we’re eating desi food. And I tend to eat a lot of junky foods. I’m trying to use up stuff we have at home, and that means using the veggies before they go bad! 🙂

Brandi — you HAVE to try the creamer!

I do love the Cocoa Puffs box! It’s so retro, and that makes it pretty awesome in my book.

The broccoli slaw mixed in with the Smart Ones looks very yummy. It’s such a good idea to bulk up frozen meals with fresh ingredients. That seems like a very natural addition.

Sweetie Pie — frozen meals just don’t fill me up unless I have some kind of veggie or fruit with them.
