Monday I had a great lunch at Clementine, but since I was with a coworker, I don’t have any pictures! I DID have an amazing sandwich that I can’t wait to eat again or try to replicate on my own: roasted sweet peppers with mashed chickpeas, organic heirloom tomatoes, salsa verde and arugula, served open-faced on toasted whole grain bread. Doesn’t that sound heavenly?! It was!

The day passed relatively quickly, and I made it to the gym for some interval action on the elliptical. I picked up dessert on my way back from the gym and didn’t even want dinner! I compromised by eating a yam first (hey, that’s a compromise in my mind!!) before digging into my Yogurtland.

Chocolate, coconut, strawberry and PB froyo with fruit and candies!

Breakfast this morning was a yogurt mess, without too much fun fruit. I’m out of mango and strawberries sadly!

I got SO hungry around 11:30 and dug into a white nectarine. It was a little crunchy but I like it that way!

The fruit held me over a wee bit longer until I reached the “official” office lunchtime of noon. Today I had whole wheat pasta shells with veggies and corn on the cob that was leftover from Sunday night. It was delicious but a tiny bit awkward eating corn at my desk! I was trying so hard not to obnoxiously crunch :)

The day went sooooooooooo sloooooooooooooowly and I almost didn’t make it to the gym but convinced myself to go and ended up banging out a great hour on the elliptical. I had a super healthy meal in mind but a wicked craving for pizza that won over, so it’s a good thing I hit the gym! I whipped up my quick homemade dough, divided it into three, and used one piece to make a personal pizza.  I was in the mood for a few different tastes, so I ended up doing half tomato sauce/cheese/peppers/red onion/basil, one quarter cheese-less with peppers/red onion/hot pepper flakes, and one quarter acorn squash with pear. Yup, you read that right!!

Today I saw a great savory grilled cheese and pear sandwich featured on The Biggest Diabetic Loser that stuck in my mind all day! This sammie was my inspiration to make a sweet/savory section with squash and pear that tasted FABULOUS!!!

The other slices were pretty good too :)

For whatever reason, pizza always prompts my sweet tooth, so I had a Skinny Cow fudge pop and a handful of M&Ms. Seriously good thing I made it to the gym, right?!
