Breakfast Buffet


I don't know what got into me this morning, I definately over did it for breakfast today:(  I woke up feeling tired and lacking energy so I had a small banana and 1 T. peanut butter before I headed out to EXSC.

I walked about 1.5miles to a mountain bike/running trail to run some hills.  By the time I got home I had been out about 90minutes and was hungry!  So, I started witha slize of Ezekiel toast topped with a few black beans and left over egg white turkey scramble from my pizza the other night & a drizzle of low sugar ketchup.   It was good but I wasn't satisified.

So, I had this small bowl of granola.  Wouldn't have been that bad but I had a second bowl too oops!  Man, granola is just so hard for me to stop at just a bit.

Then, I still wanted even a sweeter treat so I topped one of my caramel brown rice cakes with a T. of peanut butter, a few raisins and a drizzle of honey.  
Well, to look on the bright side at least I ate this all for my morning meal & not late at night.  Pus, they say its best to eat your largest meal after an intense workout because your muscles will eat up all the glycogen and it won't be stored as fat.

My hubby and I are going to dinner and a concert tonight, can't wait!  I am going to try to eat some very light meals the rest of the day so I don't "feel guilty" at dinner.  Going out to dinner tonight will be a good test for me.  I am definately going to order what I want but eat a small portion of whatever that may be.  :)

It makes sense that you were so hungry after such a long workout! It may have been more than you wanted to eat but at least it's all healthy stuff! And great tasting to boot, so I'd say it was worth it :) That topped toast sounds fab. And I am with you on the granola. I rarely buy it because I just can't stop eating it. Straight from the box... hehe.
