Yesterday, I met up with HEAB reader, Cat. Cat is originally from Nashville but now lives in my beloved state of Colorado. So, while she was in town visiting her family, we got together at Whole Foods for a little hot bar action.
For the record, my lunch set a new record low. Good job HEAB!
I was so excited to see some roasted tempeh on the hot bar. It’s usually all tofu, which my stomach cannot handle. My bowl consisted of said tempeh, tuna salad, and all the roasted veggies I could find. My belly was happy. After chatting about life out West, we said our goodbyes. Cat, our conversation has me missing the mountains so much, and I hope to see you when you pass through town again! For any new HEABers, CD and I have spent the past two summers in Colorado, but we can’t go this year as I was advised not to travel from sea level to altitude, and we have to be in Nashville for several doctor’s appointment over the summer. You can read about our some of our past adventures here and here, and we plan on going back next year for sure.
Since I was at Whole Foods, I figured I might as well peruse the ice-cream aisle, and I came home with 2 new pints…
Tempt’s hemp milk Coffee Biscotti and Almond Dream’s Cappuccino Swirl. (Note to Almond Dream folks: update your website with your new ice-creams!) The nutritional stats weren’t too bad, with both flavors coming in at 140 calories per serving. I was a bit hesitant to try the Tempt as I am not a big fan of hemp, but I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. The texture was a bit funky, not as creamy as typical ice-cream, but the flavor and fudgy chunks of biscotti made up for it. The Almond Dream ice-cream was good, but I’m more of a chunk girl – the swirl alone didn’t do much for me.
Now, I know it seems like I am going through ice-cream like crazy, but honestly, I only eat a few spoonfuls at a time, averaging about 1 serving a day. Keep in mind I do have a husband with a bit of a sweet tooth. In fact, I’ll leave you with CD’s favorite bowl of cereal…
Oh, and one last thing before I go. Several of you asked. So, here you go…my baby bump at 15 and 1/2 weeks.
