Lettuce wraps rock!

Happy Monday! 

Started off the day right with a big bowl of cereal with almond milk:

Then I went to work.  Today I met with 2 brides and reviewed everything for the 4, yes 4 events this weekend.  I’m going to be lucky to get a day off this week.  I was low on groceries so this is what I came up with for lunch:

Quorn “chicken” sandwich on rye with some applesauce.  I was so excited to go to the grocery store after work.  First of all, I love grocery shopping.  Second, I desperately needed groceries.  And third, I have a bunch of new recipes I’m excited to try.  My first experiment was dinner tonight:

Lettuce wraps. Oh yum!  They are made with chicken, mushrooms, scallions, garlic, and ginger, in a sauce of  natural peanut butter, organic chicken broth, low sodium soy sauce, hot sauce, and peanuts.  So freaking good, I will definitely make these again.  And surprisingly filling too.  I’m thinking I may have to break into the homemade snickers for dessert, not sure yet.  Anyway, good night, I’ll see y’all tomorrow.


It’s hard to remember not eating breakfast.  It wasn’t very long ago that I did not.  So much can change in a year.  In a year, I quit smoking, started running, started eating right, changed careers, gained three nieces and 1 nephew, lost 5 pounds and more than a few  inches.  All this from eating breakfast?  Well, no, all this because of lots of prayers.  I envisioned the way I wanted my life to be and prayed hard for God to transform me.  He put in me the drive and motivation to make the changes in my life necessary to experience this.  It’s awesome!  Prayer can do sooooo much! 

For breakfast:

Bran Flakes and a cup a joe.  It was gobble, gobble, and off to work.  A full day of meetings and productivity.  It was a late but yummy lunch:

I love these Quorn meatless “chicken” patties.  I slathered on some Smart Balance mayo on my whole wheat bun and added a couple of pickles, and crunched on some carrots.  I stopped at Publix on my way home to pick up some more Easter celebration supplies.  I finally got home and relaxed a bit and then I whipped up a salad to go with Amy’s mushroom and olive pizza:

Love this pizza!  For dessert, my beloved dark chocolate.  Every day should have a little something sweet in it!
