Hi, everyone, how was your day?
Today was my slow day, so I took advantage of my extra time and made pancakes with my TJ’s multigrain pancake mix.
They turned out just the way I like them—very light, with the center still gooey. My Aunt Melissa taught me this. It makes it so that you don’t need syrup, and since I don’t have any syrup, it was perfect!
I loved them, and them, and they were very filling.
After my big breakfast, I drove to the store to pick up a couple things for meals for the week. I’ve started meal planning, so that I only have to make one trip to the store per week. It worked out well last week, so hopefully I can keep it up.
After my very filling and carby breakfast, I had a light lunch around 3. I had romaine lettuce with some cucumber and chicken. I topped it with a new light ranch dressing I’d picked up at the store.
About an hour later, I had a white peach for a little snack.
Then I decided to get my rear in gear and sweat a little! I walked with Leslie for “four fast miles.” This is a video that has walking and jogging intervals, and it really does make you sweat.
After that, I quickly fixed up my dinner.
I cooked up some of the ww TJ’s pasta, and added some light(er) ground beef to a jar of spaghetti sauce.
I topped it with some shredded parmesan cheese on top. This turned out so good and comforting. I had forgotten how much I loved spaghetti!
I had planned to have some toast on the side, but was too full from the pasta. So I waited until later when I got a little hungry, and had a sandwich thin with some spray butter and garlic salt.
So in my Education classes, we’re put into discussion groups. Here’s how our conversation went:
Girl 1: (to girl 2) So, have you gone vegetarian yet?
Girl 2: Not really, it’s just cheaper to not buy meat, so I usually don’t eat it.
Me: Yeah, beans are really cheap, and they’ve got 99-cent tofu at the Super H Mart.
Girl 2: You know, that’s really not good for you. It’s so processed. You shouldn’t eat it very much.
Yes, I realize I’m probably thinking way too into it, but I just thought that was sort of… weird? rude? I don’t know. I really wanted to tell her that yes, I did know that. I know If you know me in real life, you’ll know I like to talk about food. I like to talk about which foods are healthy, and which are not-so-healthy. But I’ll probably only talk to you about this if (1) you bring up the subject, or (2) we know each other really well. This girl does not know enough about me to be giving me nutrition advice.
Okay, I’m going to get off my rant now. I’m sure lots of you have dealt with similar situations. How do you deal with unwanted nutritional advice? [I also wanted to add that of course I love getting advice on here, just not in real life from someone who barely knows my name.]
Bye guys, I’ll see you tomorrow!
