celebrating the beginning of a new week

Happy Monday!

It’s the last day of the month and ironically the beginning of a new week. As we say good-bye to January 2011 let us embark on a new week full of adventures and aspirations.

In honor of a new week…celebration pancakes.

These pancakes have been spotted all over the blogosphere and clearly I was inspired to make some of my own.

Batter up!

Sprinkles are calorie free. Right?

A girl can dream.

My cakes topped with 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter and sprinkles. Plus a side of low-fat vanilla yogurt for dipping.

Lunch was a packed salad that consisted of lettuce, cabbage, carrots and a hard-boiled egg. raspberry yogurt, two clementines, 5 stoneground crackers, and 1 laughing cow rounded out the meal.

It took 20 minutes to remove a thick sheet of ice from my car windows before driving home from work.

Dinner was a late an I probably could have skipped it, but sometimes if I don’t eat enough before bedtime it affects my falling asleep.

 Comfort food.

 Scrambled egg with peppers, cabbage, dash of garlic, dash of cumin, S +P, and nutritional yeast. Of course I had a small side of chips and salsa, what can I say I’m addicted.  Sadie’s Salsa and Naturally Preferred Tortilla chips both seem to be lower in sodium than some other well-known commercial brands.

Dessert.

Easy mango bowl

  • 1 cup frozen mango (found at Trader Joe’s)
  •  1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tbsp granola
  • sprinkle of coconut.

I’m not really sure I can call this dessert because in my opinion it is so dang healthy. Is it possible to call something “healthy” dessert? I think so!

Speaking of desserts my goal for January was limit them to three per week. Overall I think I did pretty well, except for last night when I raided the cookie jar.Smh oh well.

seriously though have you had a chace to think about your goals for February?

December’s goal was to drink less coffee and diet coke and instead drink more water. Done.

January’s goal was to limit deserts to three per week. Done

February’s goal is to eat out less. In progress.

Buono fortuna!
