Two weekends ago, I went up to Mount Snow in Vermont to go snowboarding for the first time and surprised myself by liking it, especially since I HATE the snow and cold. The first two days went pretty well, considering I was a complete newbie. :P However, on my first run on the last day, I wiped out pretty badly and ended up spraining my wrist. (Another first! My worst injury to date.) Luckily, it was not my favored hand so I could still function decently enough. Despite the fall, I can't wait to get back on the slopes and practice, practice, practice! Anyways, my wrist is feeling a lot better and I'm looking forward to what February brings!
Enough of my babbling, let's get to the eats! [Click the button for more great WIAW menus.]
Breakfast: Oatmeal with PB2 and cinnamon; egg whites with lotsa cayenne pepper
I love PB2 in my oats. Regular peanut butter sometimes adds a strange gummy or "too creamy" texture. PB2 is powdered, so it eliminates that issue AND it is lower in fat and calories.
Lunch: White chicken chili with whole wheat penne (from 400 Calorie Fix)
This was leftover from the previous night's dinner. I liked the chili recipe but the pasta seemed unnecessary. True, the recipe called for elbows but I think I'll just omit the pasta altogether next time. Save the calories for something else! ;)
Dinner: Bahamian-Spiced Chicken Breast with Yogurt-Cilantro Sauce; salad
The yogurt-cilantro sauce was deeeelish! And healthy, too, since I used plain Chobani 0% Greek yogurt.
Snack: Forelle pear; blood orange
Oh. My. God. This Forelle pear was so tiny and adorable! :) And I'm so glad blood (Moro) oranges are back in season - they are my favorite.
Dessert: Plain Graham crackers spread with homemade dark chocolate pumpkin butter
Yep - dark chocolate pumpkin butter. Recipe to follow in a few days, so make sure to come back!
