Hey All –
Tuesday was a long day, I got to work at 8AM and did not get home from work until 8:45 in the evening!! But it was a great day, at the same time so that is all that matters!
I started off the day with breakfast in the office (this is getting SO OLD!) which was another bowl of cold cereal. Honey Nut Cheerios with Light Vanilla Soy milk. Yum! I wish I had time to make oatmeal in the morning, but it is just not happening this week 😦 Oh – not pictured in breakfast photo is half a banana which I also enjoyed in the cereal!
For lunch, I enjoyed another bowl of my homemade veggie lentil soup. Yum!
For my afternoon snack, I had a big handful of red grapes – my favorite!
And an Adora disk!
At 5 o’clock I met my sister and we went to an awesome forum on Haiti with Dr. Paul Farmer as one of the featured speakers. If you have not read it yet – please read Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World. You can get the book on Amazon.com for just 11 dollars or so.
The forum was amazing, and it really inspired my sister and I to get involved to help the people of Haiti. Our dad did a lot of work in Haiti when we were younger, and he always told me what a horrible thing it was to have such poverty so close to the United States. I will be doing more research to find organizations to support and hopefully volunteer at – and once I find information, I will pass it along via the blog. But for now, go to Partners In Health, Paul Farmer’s non-profit and read about what they do, and how you can help them!
Before the forum, my sister and I split a Larabar – which is one of our favorite things to split! We shared the Lemon Bar – and it is by FAR one of my favorite Larabars!!
I have to say one of the most amazing things about splitting a Larabar with my sister is that I was not hungry anymore after just half of a bar! And I am always hungry. 🙂
After the forum, I took my sister to the grocery store (she lives in Beacon Hill, and does not have a car – so it’s a treat for her to get to the grocery store with a car!) where she stocked up on some healthy snacks! After the store, I drove her back home, and then eventually got home myself.
Thankfully when I walked in the door, Ben had already started dinner. We had pasta, turkey meat balls, tomato sauce and a little bit of mozzarella cheese melted on top. I was so hungry when I finally ate at 9pm that I did not take a picture! 😦 Sorry guys!
One thought on “Tuesday”
Your lentil soup sounds really good. Did you also put tomatoes in it? It looked like it in the picture. You have really long days! I found Quaker breakfast bars and really like them. But the last time I looked they were gone. Now something very similar is called “breakfast cookie”–it tastes about the same but it’s a bit smaller. The breakfast bars were really filling. I usually ate that at noon–nothing else–and it kept me going until dinner.
