I'm glad the end of work is near since I'm finding it difficult to sit indoors and be productive on such a beautiful day.
For lunch I had plain yogurt with kiwi, a hummus-veggie pita, and a few baby carrots. The pita was falling apart because it was one of those small ones and I stuffed it too full! Oops.
For an afternoon snack (and excuse to get outside!) I went to my favorite coffee shop, Coffee Bene. I LOVE this cafe. It is located right by St. Thomas' campus and I used to walk there almost everyday when I lived in the neighborhood. I miss living there. Of course, when I lived there I always wished I was living back in the suburbs. Sigh, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.
My love affair with Coffee Bene started when I discovered their fat free, low calorie bran muffins (they have awesome coffee too). I had these for breakfasts several times a month during college. The thing about bran muffins is that they are either too dry or full of fat. But these are moist, dense and delicious. I have no idea how they make them so big and dense, yet low cal. They remind of Trader Joe's bran muffins, but taste much better.
Look at the size of this thing...
Because this muffin is so dense and heavy it fills you up almost instantly and thanks to the fiber, keeps you full for a long time. I also had an iced coffee with a splash of soy milk to wash it down.
My stomach is very full right now, but happy.
