Pasta Primavera

Hi All –

Hope everyone had a great Thursday.  I had a great day – the overnight oats really kept me going all morning. I love my new breakfast! I did not get really hungry until a few minutes before noon… because I was going for a walk before having lunch, I had a graham cracker just before leaving for the outdoors. These awesome snacks are left over from our weekend in the White Mountains.

Lunch was not quiche – I’m going to freeze the rest of it and see how it is in a week or two. 🙂  Instead, I brought the last two pieces of the Sweet Tomatoes pizza… I love the combo of fresh basil and garlic on the pizza. It was so good.

I also enjoyed a refreshing Fresca with the pizza… not really a healthy lunch! But before eating I walked 35 minutes with my friend Jamie. Today was such a beautiful day in Boston – made even better by the fact that all week we had been expecting rain today…. instead we ended up with beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures.

A few minutes before 4 o’clock I started looking for a snack.  I had no idea that I was in for such a treat!  One of our interns made the most amazing black and white cookies today and I definitely enjoyed one this afternoon!  It was one of the best cookies I have had in a long time… I definitely wanted to go back for seconds, but I refrained 🙂


I left work at 4:30 today and went straight to the gym even though I really wanted to go home!  I was hoping that I would find a second wind while working out, and I would say that I really didn’t but at the same time I was able to crank out 50 minutes on the elliptical. I was saved by the fact that there was a re-run of Project Runway showing on Bravo while I was working out. I love Project Runway – and this episode was the finale of a season I had not seen. It was very interesting! I feel like I had an active day today with walking at lunch and paying a visit to the gym after work.

On my way home I stopped by Trader Joe’s where I picked up a couple of bananas, more yogurt for the overnight oats, balsamic vinegar, and some great pasta:

I built my dinner around this new pasta that Jamie recommended to me this afternoon. I had been planning on some sort of pasta primavera for dinner tonight, and Jamie had just tried this spinach and chive pasta the night before. I totally love it now!
Here is how dinner turned out:

The pasta:

Along with the pasta (the veggies are: tomatoes, broccoli and carrots) was a Morningstar vegan burger with a tablespoon of roasted red pepper hummus. I only ended up eating half of the burger – I’m bringing the other half along with more pasta and veggies for lunch tomorrow.

On a side note – I munched on Twizzlers after the gym today as I was making dinner and putting away groceries! Four in total. 🙂

Hope everyone has been having a good week and has a great Friday! See ya’ll soon!
