The best laid plans …

(Don’t forget to go visit Brandi — She’s hosting this week’s BSI: Spinach!)

As usual, I have a food plan for today. And as usual, my generous coworkers may throw it into a tailspin :-D.

After the gym this morning (I did Tina’s 45-minute treadmill run for the 3rd time — love this workout! Stats: 1 hour, 6 minutes; 538 calories; 149 average heart rate and 183 max heart rate ), I came home to a gingerbread theme. A shower with this new soap that my stepmom Rae Ann gave me for Christmas:


Followed by a cup of gingerbread spice crockpot oats topped with 1/3 cup healthy cream cheese icing, 1/4 cup plain yogurt, more ginger, and two crumbled graham sticks:


With Celestial Seasonings chocolate caramel enchantment chai + unsweetened Silk on the side:


If you recall from yesterday, I crafted the main course of today’s lunch plan from the chicken + rice Vianni made (see previous post) and the other half of my kale + date curry:


I left the above entree in the work fridge last night and gathered everything else I needed for today once I got home:


orange (mid-morning snack), yogurt (lunch dessert), pb + raisins I've been carrying all week, carrot sticks (from Monday night's findings) for afternoon snack, end-of-day apple, and emergency granola bar

Today’s yogurt contains 1/2 cup plain yogurt, chopped apples and melon (both from Monday night‘s findings), raisins, almond extract, and nutmeg:


I’ll report back later on how it all pans out!

Do you plan your daily food? How closely do you stick to your plan?

    I TRY to plan daily food, particularly lunch and bfast. Usually I end up thinking of dinner on the way home from class but I DO make something Monday night that will also be consumed Tuesday night since I get home mad latersss. I wish I could plan better, it would save me so much time!

    All your eats look fabbbb

    I’m bad at planning food for dinner, I just go with whatever I feel like and whatever I have on hand. Sometimes I make a big batch of something to last through most days of the week, though. Breakfast and lunch are normally similar day-to-day. Your yogurt mixes look divine!

    I usually plan out my breakfast and lunch and dinner is a bit more spontaneous, but I usually have somewhat of an idea what I’ll be eating based on what I have on hand at the apartment. Um, and I think I’m going to be dreaming about those oats now… graham crackers? Icing?? yum!!
