B: blueberry banana baked oatmeal
L: lean cuisine (not proud – but was over BF’s watching Celtics and Bruins games last night) 1/2 larabar ( I cut my larabars in half to save calories and money) mini babybel cheese round
I found myself quite hungary by the end of the day – might have been that I did not have enough protein in my breakfast OR my overly processed lunch choice
Snack last period: moz. cheese stick
Snack in car: organic apple
Dinner: veggie burger on sandwich thin, roasted cauliflower
Snack: broccoli cauliflower soup

Recipe: Brocoflower Soup
Adapted from – Oliver Oz’s Broc-Cauli Soup

1 cup broccoli, steamed (about two small bunches)
1 1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 1/2 cup of water

1 oz grated fresh parmesan
Sauté the garlic and onion in olive oil for 10 minutes. Add the milk, water, broccoli and cauliflower into a pot and stir. Add in the cheddar, garlic, onion, salt and pepper (to taste). Boil the soup for 15 minutes.
Blend with an immersion blender OR Transfer the mixture to a blender and purée. Serve and enjoy!
