The Best Sandwich

Now, I know this breakfast isn't the most appetizing one. However, smoked paprika scrambled eggs with red pepper and baby Bella mushrooms are nothing to turn your fork at... unless your fork is turning in, towards the delicious eggs. There is nothing more filling to me than eggs and veggies, I was thankful to be satiated this morning.

Does it skeeve you out to see someone else's bite out of food? If so I'm sorry! I almost forgot to take a picture. This amazing sandwich is on german dark wheat bread with olive hummus, tomato, arugula and tofurkey hickory. I don't care what anyone says, tofurkey (can be) delicious... do yourself a favor and buy the hickory smoked.  mI also had some leftover gazpacho and a la Croix. Snacks at work were peanuts and cottage cheese with blackberries- both delicious!

Dinner was really good! Another vegetariantimes.com recipe called crunchy stuffed zucchini. I didn't do the yogurt/potato chip topping but instead did raw milk sharp cheddar and Italian breadcrumbs. MMM!
Best part? Leftovers for lunch!
Marc, Bean and I walked the beach and we enjoyed playing a game called 20 questions, celebrity edition. Overall great day.

I'm Back!

Wow, so much has happened since I've last updated the blog.

Some sad things, like dealing with my Dad's death. You never get over it, you can't explain it, and it made me really unable to face certain events/ days. It could be a random Tuesday and I'd be a wreck. I've had a significant weight gain since this happened.

Some happy things: I graduated with my B.S degree in dietetics, have a full time position doing what I love, and I just passed the registration exam (I'm now an official RDN!)

That last happy bit just happened on Saturday. I'm over the moon!  Last night I curled up in bed with a good book that had nothing to do with college!!!! I'm very proud of myself. I'm so proud that I feel encouraged to face some things that have been put on the back burner, especially my health.

This is where you come in, oh faithful subscriber!

I will be coming back to you after a long break and ready to blog about my meals and my day. Let's start now, shall we?

Breakfast was a tropical green smoothie with spinach, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, milk and protein powder and the best iced coffee I've had in a while! Coconut macadamia nut mmmm...

Snack #1 carrots and homemade ranch (ranch powder and whole plain yogurt)
 snack #2, delicious thingamabob and a lacroix (Name this fruit? Pluot?)
Carrot Gazpacho from Vegetariantimes.com, so good but the recipe was a pain in the ass!
After exercising with the husband and the puppy! I'm treating myself to a couple grasshopper cookies! (Gotta have balance, RDN orders!!)
