Last night, I got a really bad headache (hence no blog post), and I couldn't even recall if I drank more than 1 cup of water that day. So I have a new goal: I'm going to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day a and hopefully more. I have a feeling I'm going to start using my new tumblr a bit more frequently (yay!).
Some foodie highlights from today and yesterday:
Yesterday's lunch was an egg salad sandwich with a bagel thin and peach. The egg salad was made using 4 hardboiled eggs (I took out one yolk), 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, and 2 tbs Trader Joe's light mayo, and capers. This was a super last minute meal, and if I had a choice I would have subbed in some greek yogurt or something to reduce the mayo. It made about 3 sandwiches worth, so I shared.
Today's lunch was my attempt to recreate black bean soup, whole wheat toast (with Smart Balance), and another peach. The soup was good, but I'm sad to say that it was no where close to the original. I made this with one onion and red bell pepper sauteed in olive oil, garlic, chicken broth, and pureed black beans. I also added chicken into the soup to make it more filling.
It really was good, and I'm not giving up on it. I want to try adding different spices to it to make it more flavorful.

We all got dessert at Yogurtland after, and guess what? They have a new flavor! I died a little bit with happiness. It's carmel almond bar and it is delicious. I also got cinnamon graham cracker and cheesecake flavors topped with cheesecake bites, graham cracker crumbs (I originally almost typed graham cracker dust...like fairy dust) and reeses. Nom.
It's almost the fourth of July weekend! I'm getting excited!
