yesterday was a really good working day. It was one of these days when you go to work in the morning and the next thing you realize is that it’s about time to go. I was doing a lot of tiny bits and pieces but I was really happy in the evening as I had accomplished quite a lot stuff. Luckily I didn’t forget to take pictures of all the deliciousness that went into my mouth for this week’s WIAW!
HUMP DAY, HOME OFFICE DAY, FAVORITE WORK DAY!!!! And of course my absolutely favorite link-up blogger day! Thanks Jenn as always for hosting this!
My morning started as always with breakfast in the car. I had my beloved cinnamon oatmeal with pear and some chopped almonds. Fantastic! I bought a new brand of physillium seed husks last week and ever since my oatmeal turns out even better. A little smoother and thicker. It’s hard to describe. Since I realized too much hazelnut milk makes me feel a little sick I started to use soy milk again for my morning coffee. Now my belly is happy again 🙂
When I arrived at the office I started to answer my emails and worked on a concept for my boss. She suggested our project for a University Award and I needed to get together an overview of the program evaluation. Fingers crossed friends! Around 10.30am I had to leave as I had an appointment with one of my mentors. I realized that I had forgotten to eat completely so I had my peanut butter and banana sandwich on the go. Didn’t matter. It was so very delicious! I tried a new organic bread called Essener Brot. It’s whole wheat spelt. I will never have another type of bread!
My meeting ended earlier than expected. The nice guy was so supportive and friendly that we did not need to negotiate a lot. We were both happy and will meet again on Friday for further planning. Since I had some time left I met with my hubby who works only 10 minutes by food from the guy. We met up for a coffee and a quick chat. That was a really lovely unexpected break 🙂
My stomach started growling around 4.30pm and I had my second snack of the day. You might have wondered if I wanted to deny my signature meal today? NO WAY!!! But in order to mix it up a little I had one of y latest favorite desserts. Cottage Cheese with cacao powder and a hint of agave syrup. VERY VERY GOOD! A fantastic way to curve sweet cravings without indulging into too much sugar. Doesn’t look very good but I promise it is!
Around 5.30pm I had to leave the office. I hardly made it in time as working was very easy yesterday. Nevertheless I had to go in order to go to my power plate training session. It was the first time in 3 weeks and yes it burned! I was ready to go to bed after it. But I didn’t. We had to celebrate a little as my husband got a brilliant performance appraisal today! So happy for him! I certainly know how brilliant he is but it’s simply wonderful to hear that someone else agrees 😀
So I decided to make a special meal. Ever since I saw Jenn’s Chilli Stuffed Sweetpotato on last week’s WIAW I just couldn’t get it out of my head. So yesterday was the day this recipe finally happened. It turned out deliciously. I highly recommend to try it. I might have a new favorite meal! We enjoyed a bottle of sparkling wine with it. We had a nice and cozy evening and started with the 4th season of Dexter. Haha I never thought Dexter and nice and cozy would go together in one sentence!
As I was craving something sweet (I always crave sweets when I have alcohol) I had one of these lovelies! It’s a little smaller than a lifebar but as healthy and with different flavors like gingerbread ♥ and cashew cookie. Yesterday I had orange cacao and it absolutely hit the spot!
I’ll be off to Munich soon working on my thesis. I need to start at some point so why not today! First of all I might have to update my schedule. Maybe 2,5 years was a little bit naive 😛
Happy Wednesday Bloggie friends! Looking forward to see all your fantastic eats!
