Just Call Me Snacky Kathy!

Hey hey! How is everybody doing? Me? Well, thanks for asking…I had a great day!

I had an older gentleman as a patient today (for newbies, I am a CAT scan technologist in a hospital) who was the most personable and pleasant patient I’ve had in a long while. It can be hard working in a hospital sometimes. Let’s face it, when you don’t feel well, you get cranky and sometimes that crankiness is projected at the wrong people. This gentleman was a stark contrast to the majority of my patients lately. He had a bright smile and a great sense of humor and was a joy to talk with. It feels good to be appreciated for what I do and the patients that acknowledge that always bring a big smile to my face!

I started out with something a little different for breakfast this morning. Honestly, I really couldn’t decide if I wanted oats or a yogurt parfait. I seriously stood in the kitchen for at least 5 minutes contemplating my breakfast! I know…I have no life!

1/4 cup oat bran + 1 tablespoon ground flax cooked in 1 cup of water
1/2 container of Strawberry Chobani
1 tablespoon TJ’s Valencia peanut butter
1/2 banana, sliced

And Black Coffee
Like my new mug? I L-O-V-E it! 😉

This was good, but I was hungry again after two hours. I will definitely use 1/2 cup of oat bran next time.

Like you can see from my post yesterday for What I Ate Wednesday, typically I have one am snack and one pm snack along with my three main meals. Today I had FOUR snacks and three meals!

Snack #1 (8:00am): A new-to-me Z Bar flavor courtesy of my girl Christin. I am in love with these things!

Yeah, the package is empty! That’s how hungry I was by 8am!

Snack #2 (9:30am): About 3 cups of fresh popcorn from our popcorn machine in the breakroom!

Popped with butter-flavored oil, no salt

Snack #3 (4:00pm): Pumpkin Pie Parfait

1/4 cup pumpkin puree + 3-4 drops vanilla stevia +
a HEAVY sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
+
Cottage Cheese
+
Pom Arils

I swear this tasted JUST like pumpkin pie! The only thing it needed was some graham cracker crumbs!

Snack #4 (right now!): Snickerdoodle Hummus & Animal Crackers

I saw that Katie made herself some dessert hummus today with inspiration from Evan. I was like, “What is dessert hummus?” So I took a look over at Evan’s blog wannabechef. You have GOT to try this! I seriously thought I was eating a snickerdoodle! I followed his recipe, but left out the brown sugar and I thought the sweetness was perfect!

Excuse me while I live vicariously through Teddy here for a moment and bathe in this cinnamon goodness!

I may or may not have just run out of animal crackers and used my finger to clean this little bowl! 😉

Have you ever tried dessert hummus? If not, go make it NOW!
