I imagined myself waking up at 8 and eating a big bowl of oatmeal but in reality I woke up at 9 (yes, that’s ten hours of sleep!) and just wanted some simple cereal.

Did you know there’s actually a restaurant called Cereality where you can choose from a variety of cereals and toppings?  Oh, and there’s some pretty good looking oatmeal concoctions too!

Unfortunately Nature’s Path Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise is not on the list of available cereals.

Cereal + almond milk + small banana + cinnamon granola.

Then I got to work on lunch for later.

Hmmm what do I have on hand?  Chickpeas, tomatoes, spinach, pitas, curry.  Say no more, curried chickpea pita here I come!

Cooked 1/2 cup of chickpeas in some olive oil and curry then tossed in some plum tomatoes towards the end.

Then stuffed it all in a pita with some spinach.  The filling proceeded to fall out as I tried to photograph it.

Carrots and hummus on the side.

And I bought a Kombucha at Whole Foods, where we ate lunch.  This drink was such a pain, it would NOT stop fizzing everytime I tried to open it.

What the heck is elderberry?

Also had a couple bites of the sister’s oatmeal raisin cookie and it was stellar!!

Came home and for some odd reason was already starving — what the heck?  But my body wanted food so I fed it.

Apple, cinnamon peanut butter and multiseed crackers — these did not hit the spot today 😦

I indulged in a little reading then decided it was wayyy to nice outside to pass up a chance to get some fresh air so I took a leisurely (and long!!) walk through the neighborhood.  Not sure how far I went but I was gone for an hour and a half and it was pretty chilly by the time I finished up.

Tofu was on tap for dinner.

Caitlin’s Perfect Baked Tofu is my go to tofu recipe.

With roasted veggies (slow + low sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts in olive oil and salt + pepper).

I think I could have this simple dinner every week and be happy!

Ended the night with trivia and hopefully I’m out on a long run as you read this.
