This morning started off with a wonderful bowlful of oat bran. I mixed in a spoonful of mascarpone ice cream, and sprinkled the oats with a handful of President’s Choice Berry Blend Sweetened Dried Fruit, and half a Ruth’s Hemp Power Chocolate Raspberry bar.
The dried berries (cranberries, cherries, and blueberries) were given to me, I probably wouldn’t have bought them myself given that they’re sweetened with sugar and corn syrup, but I’m glad I tried them because they are really good, nice and plump with lots of blueberries. Though, I’m still not likely to buy them next time I run out of dried fruit….
The bar was really good too. It has a nice raspberry flavour, and the chocolate wasn’t too overpowering (it’s not dark chocolate). And there are nice big pieces of nuts. The texture is like a typical granola bar.
Through the morning I sipped on Breakfast part 2, the other half of last night’s spinach/collard/mango/banana green monster. I am pleased to report it held up quite well in the fridge overnight. I detected no difference (though I’m not really sure why I thought there would be).
For lunch and snacks, I brought along an apple with black berries, a container of celery, carrot, and grape tomatos, some hummus, and chili.
I wasn’t really feeling the chili once I got around to lunch at work, so I ate the other stuff, and before leaving I dug out the last 2/3rds of an All Fruit Original Elevate Me! bar which I munched on while walking to the bus stop. Here’s the evidence.
Come dinner time I didn’t really know what I wanted so I figured I might as well finish my lunch. I also had two broken up whole wheat matzo crackers for chili dipping.
Now to come up with something for tomorrow’s lunch…I’m thinking not chili…
