Brrrrr! It’s freezing here in Colorado!

I woke up, and warmed myself up with some good ol’ Jillian Michaels. After the butt kicking, I wanted something warm, with staying power.

An egg white baked omelet. In this particular creation: 3 egg whites, 1 handful of frozen (thawed) spinach, 1 shredded carrot. It was yummy, and it served its purpose. It held me over for a while, but as always, I was about to gnaw my arm off when lunchtime rolled around.

I had packed this the night before:

You can’t really tell, but this is an enormous container filled with lettuce, cucumber, and shredded carrot. I also always include some balsamic vinegar in a baggie to add to the salad at lunchtime. The best part of this lunch was the pear that I sliced and threw in the mix. Pear and balsamic…dynamic duo.

I also had this vitatop somewhere during the day. Along with a half a PB/pumpkin butter sandwich that went un-photographed.

I got home and realized we had a ridiculous amount of eggs in our fridge, and we’re leaving town soon, so I looked up a recipe for Eggs Foo Young in one of my favorite cookbooks: More With Less. This was infinitely better than my first attempt at these little guys.

I had to change the recipe based on the ingredients we had on hand, but it was a giant success.

Here are all the little eggy pancakes.

And my portion:

I actually had one more after this plate…

With instructions, Meeker made thickened soy sauce to accompany the eggs. I will post the recipe for both the egg cakes and the sauce here.

I will probably have some sort of dessert after publishing this post. A cookie, maybe? Dates and peanut butter? VitaBrownie? So many possibilities…


Tomorrow is the last work day of the week! My day is jam packed. I am not exaggerating when I say that we booked our day so full (minor instruction, Thanksgiving feast, crafts, Grandparents Day) that I will not have ONE break. Not even 30 seconds to myself. I imagine I will have to go to the bathroom at some point…but I guess I’ll deal with that when it happens. Until then, I am going to rest-up for the fun day of festivities tomorrow!

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving at your job or in any of your classes?
