Yesterday, I skipped the spring rolls for a lovely lunch date with Justine and her Little One at one of our favorite Mediterranean restaurants, Cafe Rakka.

Usually, we order the hummus appetizer followed by a meal, but these days if I eat a lot of food at once, I feel really sick. So, we skipped the appetizer, and I ordered small tasting platters of some of my favorites: Baba ghanoush, tabbouleh, and falafels with whole wheat pita bread. YUM!

We ate and had the best time talking. I love my girlie lunches! Before leaving the restaurant, Justine pointed out that they sold their whole wheat pita by the bag, and of course, I had to buy some. It then made an appearance at breakfast this morning in an Egg McMuffin, HEAB style. :)

That’s a whole wheat pita stuffed with 1 scrambled egg, 2 slices of ham, and 1 piece of goat cheese all toasted and warm. I can’t seem to get enough melted goat cheese into my body these days, and I must admit that I LOVE ham…and eggs. :)

Another thing I love?

Cookies ‘N Cream has always been one of my favorite ice-cream flavors, and I did a little dance in the ice-cream aisle when I saw that Turtle Mountain is now making a So Delicious coconut milk ice-cream version. In all honesty, it didn’t really taste like your typical cookies ‘n cream ice-cream. There were cookies, but it was missing that cream flavor. It basically tasted like vanilla ice-cream with large cookie chunks, but there is nothing wrong with that as I love a good chunk-filled ice-cream!

Tonight is yoga, and I am so excited. I love my prenatal yoga class and being around other mamas-to-be. Their bellies are so cute. I’m not really showing yet, but I’m looking forward to a little belly of my own. :)

Time to get started with my day. Hope you all have a good one, and please tell me, what is your favorite pita bread stuffer and do you prefer your ice-cream chunky or smooth?
