You ever have those days when you have a practically insatiable appetite?
You know, the ones where you can honestly visualize yourself eating something without even bothering with cooking or preparation of any kind because you’re just so freakin’ hungry?
Veggie lovers think ripping up some kale straight out of the ground and going to town dirt and all. Meat heads, well…I won’t go there…we don’t want to scar our veggie loving friends, but you know what I mean. 😉
Well, THAT is the day I had on Monday.
I started my rather chilly morning with a big cup of black coffee…
and a side of fluffy white robe 😉
Then, with thoughts of this past weekend still in my mind, I assembled a ham and pineapple omelet (4 egg whites) with a bit of mozzarella cheese melted to perfection!
I thought about having some toast or maybe an English muffin to go along with it, but I figured the stats were pretty good to keep me satisfied for a few hours before snacktime rolled around…I was wrong.
I got to work at 8:00 and by 8:30 I was chowing down on this beauty:
I went to the cafeteria looking for something…but I didn’t know what…until I spotted my long lost love, the self-serve waffle station!
I swear when they first started it up a couple of years ago, I had a waffle everyday for WEEKS!
I mixed a little cinnamon and some raisins into the batter and topped it with maple syrup, chopped pecans, and a sliced banana.
For a few hours anyway…
I don’t know what these are…and I can’t really remember how they got into my hand…all I know is that they ended up in my belly.
And then not long after it was lunchtime…and I was so happy…because I was STARVING!
Romaine, ham, pickle, mustard on whole wheat bread with a honeycrisp apple and more pickles.
Ham twice in one day? Hey, I told you I “pigged” out! 😉
(Sorry, couldn’t resist)
Luckily, lunch kept me satisfied for about 4 hours. On my way to the gym for yoga class, I snacked on some Greek yogurt.
I got home from yoga around 5:3o and started feeling hungry AGAIN. Having already made plans to meet a friend for dinner, I didn’t want to spoil my appetite, but in the end, I was just too tired (and lacked the willpower) to say no to a few of these:
Yes, that would be the same Ritz/almond butter/pumpkin butter combo from this weekend…I am officially addicted. All I can say is it’s a good thing I’m out of Ritz crackers now!
Afterwards, I got ready and headed over to Kori (my absolute favorite local sushi restaurant) to meet Lettie for dinner
Her roll is on the left wrapped in the cucumber and mine is on the right (it had eel in it, but that’s all I remember…well, other than it tasted fan-freakin-tastic!)
Miso soup was also involved…I swear I could have a bowl everyday and not get tired of it!
I left feeling quite full and thought, “Ugh, FINALLY!”
And then, about 2 hours later, this happened:
Yep, straight outta the container…because I’m classy like that. Luckily it’s not the BEST flavor in the world (too much chocolate and not enough pb in my opinion) so I didn’t go totally crazy, but I’ll have you know I jumped in bed with a quickness after that little snack before I found myself gnawing on the kitchen sink!
I seriously don’t know what got into me because today has NOT been that way at all! In fact, I actually waited until I got to work today to have breakfast (yes, I caved and got another waffle) and didn’t feel hungry again for nearly FIVE hours!
So weird how the body works sometimes!
Do you ever have those “eat everything but the kitchen sink” days?
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten lately?
