Lazy Dinner

by Meghann on December 15, 2008

I’m not sure if it’s my metabolism or the amount of food I ate, but the stuffed feeling I had after lunch time disappeared as it always does and around 4:00 when I was suddenly very hungry again. I can never seem to make it from one meal to another without wanting to gnaw my arm off. This is precisely why I work snacks into my daily meal plan. I know some people can survive on only three meals a day, but no matter how full I am I tend to always need a snack to help me make it to the next meal. Does anybody else need snacks to get them through the days?

As I said, around 4:00 I was in need of my snack and happily munched on a Reduced Fat String Cheese and a serving of Kashi Crackers.


I had to run to the grocery store after work, so when I got home I was in no mood to cook or be creative. I settled on the Kashi Pizza I picked up on sale at Publix and some Kale Chips.


I picked up some Kale this weekend in Amelia Island. I have never been able to find it around here, so I jumped at the chance to buy it when I found it in another city. After a year of watching Kath make and eat Kale Chips, I was dying to try them myself.


I followed her directions exactly, but some how I burnt them. I was cooking the pizza in the oven at the same time, so I may have messed up the temp that way. They were still pretty good, just very, very crumbly 🙂 I still have some Kale left so I might try these again in the near future.

Melissa’s goodies had been staring at me since I got home, so as soon as I finished eating and did the dishes, I Immediately dug into the treats. 🙂 I started out with a M&M Blondie & a Peanut Butter Strip.


Melissa cut all of the sweets into perfectly portioned bite size pieces. I had no problem going back for a third piece. The Lemon Whipper Snapper was just calling my name!


OMG this Whipper Snapper was melt in your mouth delicious!!! Thanks again Melissa for all of the wonderful treats! 🙂

I have been DVRing Christmas movies all week so I am going to heat up some Sugar Cookie Tea and get into the christmas spirit. Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! 🙂

I am stuffed. My protein packed lunch filled me to the brim and I now feel like its nap time at my desk. But no can do, I have work to do! I broke into my mid morning snack way early this morning. I’m not sure why, but i just had this sudden urge of more »

Yoga Review

December 15, 2008

I’ll admit it I’m a little sore today. I actually started to feel sore last night. Yesterday’s 5k was a little bit tougher on me then I had imagined. Maybe it was the fact I was trying to gun it the whole race? I agree with Kath’s statement yesterday, its amazing how I can run more »
