Was very busy yesterday. Between a plumbing problem as well as having to go to one of my daughter's best friends's play last night, I didn't have time to cook anything. Her friend played the role of Audrey, which is my name, and she threatened to come and get me a drag me to the play, if I didn't go on my own. I couldn't disappoint my namesake for the night. Needless to day, yesterday was another very low day for me. *sigh*

Today, hubby and I ran a lot of errands today and went shopping, so we decided to check out the Co Op cafe, which has an awesome salad bar, olive bar, and homemade all natural entrees. I got two plates, loaded up one with salad items such as lettuce, spring mix, red pepper, snow peas, broccoli, 2 artichoke hearts, about 1/2 cup of Moroccan cous cous salad with veggies, a couple of cherry tomatoes, and fruit (1 humongous strawberry, canteloupe, some red grapes, raspberries, and two good pieces of pineapple) with chipotle ranch dressing and a couple of croutons on top. The other plate, I had a huge amount of broccoli (again, only hot, lol!) in garlic butter (not greasy at all, very tasty, too!), kale, summer squash and red pepper in a light sauce, and some spicy rice with cabbage, jumbo shrimp and snow peas- everything was absolutely delicious, and the best part is that I didn't walk away bloated like I do whenever we go out to eat! I estimate that I had about 6-8 grams of fiber there, judging by what was on my plate. Might have been a little higher, but to be on the safe side, I'll just leave it at that. I couldn't make dinner again tonight, due to us trying to fix the plumbing problem, almost a success, but need to do more work tomorrow *sigh again*.

Today's menu-


At the Co Op Cafe- 6-8 grams
2 bottles of Glaciar Distilled Water- one with lunch, and one I drank after food shopping


2 pieces of Fiber One 9 Grain bread- 12 grams
roast beef, mayonaise and mustard
2 servings of Beanitos white bean Nacho Cheese and Better Cheddar flavor 12 grams
gnu foods high fiber Blondie bar- 12 grams
chocolate milk

total for dinner- 36 grams

total for the day- 42-44 grams

As I said, we went shopping today. At the Co Op, I picked up these high fiber bars- Blondie flavor and Chocolate Brownie flavor. Tried the Blondie tonight- it was ok, but it didn't taste anything like a Blondie, that's for sure- very fruity flavor to it, if you ask me. It didn't taste bad, but I wouldn't buy it again for $1.89 per bar. Hopefully, the Chocolate Brownie flavor tastes better. I'll just stick to my high fiber Market Basket or Hannaford bars, thank you very much, if this is the best they can do for high fiber bars at an all natural store.

I waited with such excitement and anticipation for the infamous Beanitos........well, I don't care for the Nacho flavor ones at all- too "beany" tasting for my liking. Of course, dummy me bought two bags of that flavor as well as the Better Cheddar kind, and one bag of pinto beans with sea salt. If only I didn't live so far away from where these products are, I would have just bought one until I tried them out first. Better Cheddar wasn't too bad, hopefully the pinto bean with sea salt is good. I will eat them so as not to waste them, but very disappointed in the Nacho and Better Cheddar flavors, with Better Cheddar being the better flavor of the two I tried tonight.

The Fiber One 9 Grain bread is awesome! They didn't have my Arnold's Double Fiber Bread, so I found this one and decided to try it- it is nice and moist, thick slices, too! I just might try these in French toast some time.

They didn't have my Snyder's Eat Smart Tortilla Chips, but Bachman has a similar product, so I picked up a couple of bags of those. I like to keep all of my high fiber stuff handy and ready to use, especially during times when I can't cook and eat my salads- having an awful lot of those days these past two weeks!

I hope everyone is doing great this weekend. Enjoy the rest of it!
