Yesterday was a crazy day at work. Today was a crazy day at school. Well not really, I just think it’s crazy to be in the same class for six hours. Yuck.
Today I had the oh so delicious Chobani’s Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt. I am actually trying to my my own version of it. I made “baked” apple topping and layered it with cinnamon and Chobani plain greek yogurt. I’m going to let it sit for a day or two to see if it tastes similar. That way I’ll only have to buy a big tub of plain Chobani, some apples and save money.
Speaking of trying new things, I tried the Blue Diamond Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Breeze with Coconut. The result? It tasted exactly the same as the original! I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Even Victoria at Confession of a College Vegan, didn’t care too much for it. I didn’t taste any coconut. Maybe if I got the sweetened one it might have tasted like coconut? Who knows.
The only pro I have to say it that the sodium is reduced from 180 mg to 130 mg. I’m all about low sodium things, especially if I am going to mix it into something that already has a higher sodium content. But I think I’ll just stick to Silk Soy Milk or So Delicious Coconut Milk.
For some reason, I am quite “food-out.” I didn’t know what I wanted to eat for lunch today, so I just had a little bit of everything. I just realized I had a lot of cinnamon. I love cinnamon. It’s my favorite spice!
Here are my meals for today. Only nine more days left for the challenge. I knew for dinner I wanted to use that spinach from the other day. With black beans, tostones, quinoa, oh my!
Allan also spoiled me today with delicious Brazilian coconut candy called beihinjo, meaning little kiss in Portuguese. Here is a picture of what it’s suppose to look like. I ate them all… there were about 10 little balls… each around 50-60 calories each. You do the math lol.What can I say? I’m a sucker for coconut! The real kind, that is.

Question: Do you ever get “food-out?” If so, how do you recover? Trying a new recipe? Buying new foods?
