Cookies for breakfast

This post isn’t near as personal as the last two (sigh of relief) but much more upbeat πŸ™‚ I am glad that you guys are getting to know me a little better and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you through your blogs as well. Let’s rewind to yesterday, shall we?

Brekkie was a PB&J cookie, well.. AB&J if you wanna get technical. I made the standard Fitnessista breakfast cookie.

*1/3 cup oats
*1 mashed banana
*1 tbsp almond butter

Mix it all up, spread it on a plate and stick in the fridge. Wake up, stumble to coffee pot, take breakfast cookie out of fridge and add raspberry jam icing! Seriously, tasted like a PB&J. For the icing, I mixed greek yogurt with some raspberry preserves.

The rest of the morning consisted of me pacing our apartment back and forth. Seriously. Why? Because I hate going to the girl doctor for the annual check up, eekk. BUT, afterward I don’t understand why the hell I was so nervous about it. Oh, well… white coat syndrome is quite normal.

Since my doctor’s appointment was right in the middle of lunch, I broke it up into parts. The first part of lunch was a cherry pie larabar. Tart, tart, tart, but as all laras, very yummy.

Second part was a nonfat pumpkin spice misto while I was waiting for my prescription to be filled. Whit there is a Starbucks inside Target!! πŸ™‚ The barista spilled a tiny bit of my coffee… which means I get a free coffee at Starbucks this weekend!! Awesome.

The final part of lunch, once I got back to the apartment around 3, was some grapes and 1 slice of Dakota bread with goat cheese and jam. Savory+Sweet. Have you tried goat cheese and jam together? Why not? It’s amazing.

No afternoon snack since lunch was so late but Hans and I went to a mountain biking group meeting at Fuel pizza. I didn’t know if I would partake in the pizza eating tonight until I got there and saw that they had a veggie pizza on whole wheat crust.Tons of fresh veggies-peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach- with a delicious pizza sauce and little cheese. Perfect.

Fuel pizza is a ‘buy by the slice’ NY-type pizza place. It had a 50’s look to it, and Hans and I thought the pizza was quite good. Best pizza that I have had in Charlotte so far, not as good as my beloved Hideaway, but pretty dang close.

Before we started the meeting, I thought to myself..What would be better than mountain biking lovers and pizza than a beer? So I really surprised Hans and asked for him to go get me one. He came back with Sierra Nevada, Summerfest Lager. Being an avid wine drinker, I always stuck my nose up to beer. However, I actually really enjoyed this one. I am no beer expert, I assure you.. but it was light and crisp with a bitter taste to the finish.

I didn’t get much veggies in yesterday but I think I did pretty good for running around all day. I can always get veggies in later πŸ˜‰
