Mmm… new hummus

IMG_2875I packed both my lunch and part of my dinner today (I’ll eat the rest of dinner when I get home, but I know I’ll be hungry before then!)

Lunch today was lettuce and carrots with hummus, plus a Greek yogurt with one of my apple granola bars that I made yesterday.  I tried a honey vanilla Voskyos yogurt because they were on sale at Whole Foods last weekend, and I liked it.  The texture wasn’t necessarily my favorite, but I think I’m still getting used to Greek yogurt in general.

I recently rediscovered a love for hummus.  Today I cracked open a container of Spinach Hummus from Whole Foods.  Delicious!  I also love the Chipotle Hummus from Trader Joe’s.

Unfortunately, my yummy lunch wasn’t filling enough, and I was starving by 4:00, so I broke out my dinner (aka: leftovers from yesterday’s lunch):

IMG_2880Still hungry, but I have meetings from 5-6:30, so I won’t be eating the rest of my dinner until 7-ish.  There will be food at the meetings, but I’ll try to restrain myself from eating too much of it.  Then again, it is free food… 🙂

The SWE family

Last night, we had an executive officer meeting for SWE at Lucky’s, a local bar and grill.  There are 5 VP’s and 1 President.  We intended to go to the Library Cafe, which has better food, but it was closed for Labor Day — oops!  Unfortunately, Lucky’s vegetarian options are limited.  I ended up getting the Maui burger (pineapple + teryaki sauce + ham + burger), but with a veggie pattie and no ham.  The waitress seemed really confused by my order, but she ended up getting it right!


This burger was HUGE.  I only ate half, and most of the fries (they were good!).

Good news for us: Lucky’s was not at all busy last night.  Which means we weren’t rushed out to open up a table, and we ended up staying for almost 2 hours.  Most of it was business talk, but it was so much fun.  All of my best friends are in SWE, so even when I have multiple meetings back-to-back  (like the 3 I have today!), it is still the highlight of my day!

Remember Kim, Kelley, Jenny, and Amanda, who I went to the Taste of Madison with?  They are all officers in SWE with me.  Love it!

After our long meeting, I was still hungry.  I ended up having the same snack as earlier today: berries, milk (this time vanilla soy), and granola:

IMG_2861What can I say? I love my berries and my granola!  Plus, I can’t let the berries go bad, right?   🙂  After finishing my Finance homework and doing some yoga to loosen my sore muscles, it was off to bed for me!

Breakfast this morning was Fiber One pancakes (+ oat bran + flax + soy protein powder + walnuts).  I heated a bunch of raspberries and strawberries with a little bit of syrup on the stove, and served it over the pancakes.  YUM!


I am super stiff today, and I can’t figure out why.  I’m going to bike instead of running this week because my right knee is really bothering me, and hopefully I can run to the Farmer’s Market again by Saturday.

Any advice on Pilates/yoga moves I can do to help my aching knees/hips/calves?
