Here in lies the reason as to why I should not have given up PB.
In a moment of panic, dissatisfaction, boredom and madness I bought these last Friday:
They arrived from iHerb today. Apparently my sanity, which unbeknownst to me I had lost, arrived along with them. I’m not going to say how much these 4 jars of nut buttery goodness and 2 packets of crackers cost me but, What The What! I haven’t told Tom, and whilst he does occasionally read my blog he usually just skims through the posts. Hear’s to hoping he’ll skim through this one too…
Oh, and it turns out that my addiction is not unique to PB. I am, in fact, addicted to all forms of nut butters and nuts. Oh well, at least I know that as long as there’s another nut butter back-up at home I sharen’t freak out if the PB is finished like last time. When this month’s PB challenge is up, that is.
I have also learnt that there are new levels of boredom when writing a dissertation. New levels. And nothing can resolve the boredom other than the completion of the dissertation.
In better news, my lunchtime salad today was fricking amazing!
And it kept me full for a good 4 hours afterwards; probs because of all the crackers and nuts I added in as the rest was the same as yday. Progress.
As for the rest today’s eats, they haven’t been too bad…
The usual breakfast. What it lacks in elegance and variety, it makes up for in taste. Fact.
This ain’t pretty either. And was rather random. I just grabbed whatever I could post-run and chucked it together. Spiralized carrots and cucumber (I’ve missed my spiralizer!), chopped red pepper dressed with Gena’s balsamic-tahini vinaigrette and served with sweet potato that was topped with mango chutney. Twas good.
Dessert x4. Just because I’ve given up the PB doesn’t mean I’ve given up my go-to and all-time fave snack of nut butter and marmalade on rice cakes.
Right, I’m going now. I feel sick from sitting in front of my computer too much over the last few days (and longer)! Nos star.
