Crazy Weekend Wind Down

by Meghann on May 3, 2009

It feels so good to sit on my own couch, watch the televisions shows I want to watch and just be plain lazy. The perfect Sunday afternoon wind down from another great weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

We ended up stopping right outside Jacksonville for lunch. My Dad and I chose Tropical Smoothie for wraps and my Aunt and Mom went to Firehouse for some subs.

I had the Veggie Veggie wrap which was southwestern rice, corn black beans, asparagus, romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, & parmesan cheese sans the dressing that was suppose to come on it.

It was very tasty, but I should have asked for it without the rice. I will have to remember that for next time.

The wrap came with an orange that I enjoyed as my lunch dessert.

When I finally made it back to my apartment I had a couple of presents waiting for me.

The first from Melissa at Fitness NYC who sent me a care package to help with my upcoming marathon.

Thanks Melissa!! These goodies are going to come in handy!

With the package she packed some Sweet Potato Oatmeal Muffins and Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies.

Of course, I had to try a muffin.

YUM!!! It was perfect, with just a hint of sweetness. I love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The next was a gift from Danica who sent me a variety of Annie’s goodies.

I can’t wait to start testing this stuff out. Thank you Danica!!

Right now my kitchen cabinet is filled to the max with snacks and bars. In fact it’s so full I had to empty the shelf I had my reusable bags on so I could start putting food on that shelf as well! BUT, they are just snacks and my kitchen was bare of any essentials for lunches or dinner so off to Whole Foods and Publix I went.

At Whole Foods I picked up an Honest Tea.

This baby just had a touch of sugar in it and I have to say that touch was even too sweet for me. I have officially gotten to the point where I can’t stand any sugar at all in my tea anymore. Unsweet only for me please!

Since this was a celebration weekend I had no problem indulging by eating out for almost every meal and having my fair share of sweets. However, I felt it was time to do a little eating out detox. All I wanted for dinner was something simple and I was really craving almond butter.

I had a piece of toast I slathered with Almond Butter and topped with Spinach and Carrots. I then put the toast under the broiler for a couple of minutes to heat everything up.

It might sound like an odd combination, but it was sooooo good and exactly what I was craving! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also had the last of the Fruit Salad from this morning that I mixed with Vanilla Coconut Milk Yogurt and some Ezekial Almond Granola.

Perfect dinner!!

All weekend I was dreaming of all the wonderful Turtle Mountain Coconut Milk Ice Cream products I had waiting for me in my freezer back home. I felt good knowing I was going to enjoy one after dinner tonight. After a quick survey of the products I chose the mini Coconut Almond Ice Cream Bar to pop my Coconut Milk Ice Cream cherry.

It was the perfect minature size coated with a great Chocolate and Almond coat.

Upon first bite I was pleasantly surprised that the coconut flavor was definitely there, but as with the yogurt it’s a faint flavor in the background. It was rich and the great chunks of almonds in the coating gave it the perfect nutty crunch. I can’t wait to slowly work my way through the rest of my supply, but I can tell you right now, this one is going to be my fave.

I am WIPED right now. It’s been a long weekend with lots of excitement and not enough sleep. I am going to hit the hay early and prepare for a nice full week of work.

I hope everyone had a great weekend as well! Good night!
