How is your Wednesday going so far? Mine is off to a great start after eating an especially delicious breakfast!
This morning’s breakfast was my usual nut butter + banana slices on toast with iced coffee, but I tried a new gluten-free bread this morning, which was so, so, so tasty, especially for gluten-free bread. Some of them can be really blah… gross and flavorless.
This Glutino cinnamon raisin bread is the bomb. It was on sale at Whole Foods this week, so I bought a bag, and I’m so glad that I did. It’s soft, chewy, and sweet with big ol’ plump raisins throughout. It is so goooooood! I actually just noticed that the bag says “Almost a dessert. Almost.”, which is definitely an accurate description!
Quick side note: Please don’t freak out that I’m eating gluten-free bread. It’s probably pretty obvious on CNC that I don’t eat a gluten-free diet, but I just wanted to point that out. I actually like the way most gluten-free bread tastes, and it doesn’t make me feel tired after I eat it like regular bread does. Plus, there’s a lot of research out there about the connection between gluten and autoimmunity, so I figure it can’t hurt to cut it out here and there when I can, especially if I like it. So that’s that.
I loved this morning’s breakfast so much, I went back for a third piece with melted butter on top. Holy yum, people.
Yesterday, when I drove to my doctor’s appointment, I gave myself plenty of time to get there. Without traffic, it usually takes me about 45 minutes, but I always leave with about an hour and 15 minutes to spare just in case I hit traffic. I almost always do, so most of the time, I have about 10-15 minutes to spare before my appointment, which is cool with me because I like to read the pregnancy and baby magazines in my doctor’s office. Plus, I hate feeling rushed or being late, so it works out.
Long story short, I ended up getting to my appointment in record time yesterday and had almost 30 minutes to spare, so I grabbed a decaf iced soy latte at a near by Starbucks. Since I had some time to kill, I started to clean out my purse and wallet. Both of which were a disaster.
Some of the randomness found inside:
- Headphones + cord taco <— best thing ever!
- Pen from Hotel Vermont
- Chapstick from the spa at Esperanza
- Thumb drive with a copy of my book on it
- Top of a champagne bottle from when we told my in-laws we were pregnant
- Lip gloss
- Blotting papers that I bought for my wedding day
- Waste bag for doggie do-do <— you never know when you will need one!
- Useable bags <— I always have a bunch on me
Not pictured: A least a dozen receipts from Whole Foods and about as many straw wrappers from iced coffee purchases. #whereallmymoneygoes
