Midnight Muncher

So for the sake of confession you should all know that last night I was awake until all hours and polished off about 1/2 of a large bag of popchips. booo hiss. Laying in bed frustratingly awake makes me snacky!

I did take a melatonin after all of that, but you know what it did?  Made me sleep in like a rock star this morning and I totally missed my weekly conference call.  Thankfully it was postponed anyway because the bosses are away but I didn’t know that when I slept in.

This insomnia really needs to take a hike. In the meantime I morning medicate with delicious coffee.


And tasty healthy breakfasts with organic vanilla yogurt, sliced bananas, walnuts, and cinnamon.


Before lunch I decided it was a good time to walk over AGAIN to get my car.  The guy left me a voicemail this morning saying he was sorry if I was inconvenienced but he waited as long as he could.  Um, he didn’t wait until their advertised closing time so I’m not sure that explanation flies with me.  Unfortunately he was on lunch when I got my car so I couldn’t tell him my opinion on the subject. Instead he’s just lost my business.

I ate this super delicious Honeybar I found hiding in the cupboard as fuel for my walk.


When I got back I made a fun lunch.  Over-medium egg on Squirrelly toast with light cream cheese and wilted arugula.


With roasted carrots on the side. 


At the end of the day I had a massage appointment. My tummy grumbled while I was on the table! Probably because Laura and I are also foodie friends and tend to talk food while she works on me. :)

I grabbed dessert before dinner to tide me over. Dark chocolate.


Dinner involved a few of this week’s leftovers with a sweet twist.

Black beans, quinoa, carrots, red onion, red pepper, lime juice, cumin, salt & pepper all mixed up and used as quesadilla filling.  Roasted pineapple and shredded low-fat mozzarella completed the deal.


So filling!!


After dinner I had work to do for both my regular job and my small contract.  Thankfully both were taken care of fairly quickly and I think I now have time to run a quick vacuum through my place before it’s too late to annoy the neighbours.

There’s an apple on the counter for late night snacking if necessary.  But I won’t need it, right?  Riiight?! :)

Your egg sandwich and your quesadilla looked really delicious. How do you usually roast your carrots?

I think I recognize your Starbucks mug :) You must have quite a collection by now!

I sometimes suffer from insomnia too. For me, exercise is the only thing that really helps...on days when I exercise, I sleep so much better. Also, I try to avoid all caffeine.
