I’m really sad to admit this, but I think that my daily iced coffee habit might also contribute to my sugar cravings. Remember how I skipped my usual glass of iced coffee with breakfast this morning? Well, I didn’t crave sweets after I finished eating my bowl of oatmeal like I normally do. Maybe I was in a different mindset this morning, knowing that I’d wait until after dinner to treat myself, but I didn’t feel those usual mid-morning cravings.
Eventually, I drank an iced coffee with only milk in it, so I never really craved sugar this morning. Of course, if someone gave me a cupcake, I wouldn’t turn it down, but you know what I mean! 😉 Maybe cutting back on the amount of iced coffee that I drink is my next experiment.
Mal and I spent most of the morning doing a little shopping. He was in the market for a new winter coat.
And let me tell you, it was a tough decision for him! We spent over an hour at REI while he tried on different coats and debated between his favorites.
Mal and I are both very careful with how we spend our (personal) money, so I understand why he put so much thought into his purchase. Eventually, he decided on a nice little number!
It took me 10 seconds to decide which Gu I wanted to buy. Vanilla Bean, baby!
At home, I whipped up a quick lunch: quiona with baked tofu chunks, roasted brussels sprouts, and balsamic vinegar.
It was an awesome combination of flavors and textures! Quinoa rules.
Lunch left me feeling very satisfied, but I still have a hankering for something sweet. Maybe brushing my teeth with help? I feel like the taste in my mouth is giving me the urge to eat something sugary. I’m not going to give in!!
Time to take the pug to the dog park!
See ya for dinner!
