The crazyness begins!


A week doesn't seem like long enough to re- cooperate! :( I worked the week and enjoyed the lack of homework but I sure don't feel ready for the summer semester!

How was your weekend? I went house hunting (our lease is expiring and we at least want to look before we sign again!), spent time with my man and  friends, cooked some mean dishes (like this wholewheat flatbread 'pizza!)
2 for my man, one for me :) And grilled tomatoes on the side

Close up- pinapples, green peppers, mushrooms, cheddar, crumble veggie patty and a slice of veggie turkey just for fun- DELISH

 and went through old photos from London! They made me nostalgic!
Outside Buckingham Palace
A friend of mine came over to chat with me about Australia and where she should move to- I recommended the relaxed, vegetarian friendly Byron Bay in Brisbane over corporate Sydney. I also felt a twinge of jealousy- I want to go live in Byron for a year!

Todays Food Log:


I had the new Berry Veggie Machine™ It contains purple carrots, sweet potatoes, red beets, sweet corn, cherries, strawberries and plums and is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E, B3, B5, B6, B12, potassium, fiber, iron and calcium. Plus, it holds two whole servings of veggies and one serving of fruit in each 15.2oz bottle.

I did not like the taste though, compared to their other flavors, and the beets are really staining. I had to go brush my teeth again before work and use mouthwash and was still spitting red!


230 Calorie Amy's rice and enchiladas


160 Calorie Chobani Banana Strawberry Greek Yogurt, my favorite!

I made a delicious sweet and spicy stir fry for under 400 calories! I went on to check everything and make sure everything was correct- yet again I was surprised at how low calorie mushrooms are and loaded up the stir fry with them! So much food for so few calories!!

1 fifth of a block of spicy tofu (I usually do more but just that much was 90 calories, glad I checked, and when I cubed it it was enough!)
half a green pepper, sliced
8oz fresh white mushrooms
1 cup of canned pineapple chunks
1 cup of boil in a bag brown rice (cooked)
Chili flakes
Braggs Liquid Aminos (Zero calories and delish!)
A quarter of an onion
Fresh crushed garlic
salt and pepper to taste

I grilled the tofu first, letting it soak up some brags and put the remainder of the block in a Tupperware with sesame and ginger marinade for next time! Then I added in the mushrooms and onions&spices, and put the pineapple and peppers in last for some crunch.

Feeling happy I cooked and didnt grab take out even though I was exhausted!
I was SOOOO full from this meal I didn't even THINK of snacking later on in the evening :)

I've done about 45 minutes of walking for work today...too tired to do more!
