It has been nearly impossible for me to squeeze good blogging time into this weekend! My sister was visiting from out of town and I wanted to spend as much time as her as possible, especially considering my crazy work schedule for the past three days! It was great to see her!
First thing is first. I have always known this subconsciously, but now it is a fact that I can no longer ignore! Sugar is DANGEROUS! This weekend, I pretty much let my guard down. I realized that my favorite treats at work (read: elephant ears and pumpkin donuts) will soon be gone. Additionally, I always find myself eating 50 times worse when there is company in town as there are more meals out and more treats and special things. Anyway, it is so scary, but so clear that the more sugar you eat, the more you “want” it. It is suddenly so very clear to me how I would get myself stuck in donut-frenzy ruts in previous years at work. It is so easy to convince yourself that you’re “hungry” and that a sweet treat will solve the problem! I can’t wait to hit up the gym tomorrow and fill up on nutritious things again. I do love my splurges, but after a couple of days, I start to feel pretty sluggish!
I must say, this cake bite from a local bakery was 100% worth it.
Tonight for dinner, I decided to make one of my new favorite, super simple meals that I found online a while back. Avocado-egg pizza. (His picture is 150% better than any picture I was able to snap of my own creation, but trust me. If you’re an avocado-lover as I am, this is a MUST-TRY.) Also, Kontos “Smart Carb” pitas are brilliant. They are tasty, healthier than normal pita breads and also filling. I will definitely be throwing them in my shopping cart more often!
If you are NOT an avocado or egg lover, then this picture will look absolutely repulsive to you! In that case, I highly suggest that you avoid this recipe.
Stay tuned for tales of Brittany’s Day Off tomorrow! Have a great night!
(Also, is it weird that I just got really excited thinking about my morning cup of coffee tomorrow? Probably. Actually, maybe it’s a sign of a problem…….Naaaaaaw. 😉 )
