Ate at A Taste of India in Lake George today. This is really a nice place to eat with yummy food and a nice view.
I had some wonderful dal mahkani, which is a creamy lentil dish served with jasmine rice (cooked with a little cumin!)
We also had some paneer in a tomato-based sauce:
Plus, the view is nice!

Lots of water involved with today’s eats!
Preworkout shake of milk and Jay Robb strawberry protein powder. Dang this stuff is good, it’s a shame it is so expensive!
Did some swimming today at the Y for the first installment of water. Got back and had some oats cooked with banana and pumpkin, topped with PB.
Lunch was the second installment of water: Tuna fish! As a wrap with roasted red pepper hummus. And some low fat potato chips for something completely different.
Snack was a latte (and no bar today, staying strong!).
Dinner was another sea item: Clam strips. You all have seen this meal hundred times LOL! These strawberries were excellent.
Stay at home night tonight with some decaf coffee.

This morning before my workout I had 1/2 of a Genisoy bar. This was surprisingly good, but pretty high in calories (hence the 1/2 bar).
Came home to my beloved pumpkin oats topped with a bit of apricot peach marmalade and some toasted walnuts. No protein powder today.
Lunch was Fage, strawberries, a drizzle of honey, and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. I will be eating a lot of this meal during the hot summer months! Tasty. Plus a banana
Snack was a latte and the other half of the Genisoy, because I was really hungry.
Then my stomach was really growling about 1/2 hour prior to dinner, what’s up with that? So I had some honey roasted peanuts.
I’ve been craving buffalo wings lately, so I made my own version. Chicken breast served with Frank’s Red Hot sauce and a tablespoon of bleu cheese dressing. Plus broccoli (don’t do celery) and applesauce. It was good.
Dessert was some decaf and a graham cracker spread with PB. Yum!

Well, had to work today, but that is okay. The Y was closed today, so I ran at home. Preworkout snack: Date with peanut butter.
Came home to a different breakfast: Nutrigrain waffles! How about that for a change. Topped with my blueberry sauce, though - 1 tablespoon of maple syrup just isn’t enough for me. With the active events paper looking up races!
Lunch was a yummy, yummy egg salad sammie on a Smart Carb wrap. Found out we were out of baby carrots, which was weird since I had a bag in my hand at the grocery store. I think I might have put them in someone else’s cart, because they weren’t on the receipt, either! So I just had some cantaloupe on the side.
Snack was a latte and some Kashi Go Lean Crunch. Man is that stuff good.
Dinner was a grilled chicken burger with a touch of cheese, plus some more fiddleheads and yummy strawberries.
After work snack:
I am really trying to break my addiction to the bars like I did before, but they are yummy and easy!

Okay, not so lazy since I had to work, but it’s my day off from exercise – so it feels lazy.
Breakfast was the usual Sunday bagel! Whole wheat with shared maple nut cream cheese. T’was good!
Lunch was my beloved Fage! Mixed with some Kashi Go Lean Crunch and strawberries. I love my Fage!
Snack was a soy milk latte for a change. This soy was pretty mild tasting, although it was vanilla flavored and I don’t usually have sweetened lattes other than a bit of honey drizzled on top (which I did).
Plus a Zone bar.
Dinner was a fantabulous wrap. Smart Carb tortilla (8 grams of fiber!) with sauteed chicken breast, roasted red pepper hummus and spring mix. Delicious! Plus some baby carrots and a whole container of blackberries. It’s only a cup, but I wanted to eat them all LOL. And so I did.

Been busy! I am trying to consolidate blogs with my other one under its own domain to help myself. Hope to have that done soon.
Anyway, today is the start of my weekend. After my Y workout I came home and made some pumpkin oats!
Yummers. I wish I had nuts, though instead of nut butter. I like straight up nuts with the pumpkin. Or cranberry sauce!
With cafe au lait.
Lunch was some Stonyfield probiotic yogurt with Optimum blueberry granola and strawberries. Very good, although I don’t like this yogurt anywhere near as much as I like greek.
Got a postcard in the mail for a free iced coffee – so that is where I went this afternoon!
Dinner was at East End Eatery, where I got a fresh and delicious salad. Rode the scooter, here is my lovely helmet!
plus a pizza wrap on a whole wheat wrap. Lots of cheese, but at least not a ton of dough.
Snack, one of those yummy fudgy ‘brownies’ with PB.
