WIAW: Sloppy Joe’s and Black Bean Brownies
Happy Hump Day Folks! This week has actually gone by pretty fast for me. Monday I had a good amount of work to keep me busy and then we went to my parents for dinner and to watch the Lightning lose the Stanley Cup 🙁 Tuesday I had several meetings- two with free food! And today’s half way through the week. Nice. Let’s party on with Jenn and celebrate all the food.
BREAKFAST: I’ve been enjoying Trader Joe’s Pretzel Bagels for breakfast at work. I bring a little container of half cream cheese for the bottom and half butter for the top. I think I like the butter better, but I still like both 🙂 Indecisive much?!
And my new favorite… the yogurt parfait: 2% Fage Greek Yogurt, halved blueberries, chopped strawberries, puffed wheat and almond slivers.
MORNING SNACK: As the saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
LUNCH: Work salad bar for the win! There’s a little bit of everything in there- mixed greens, beets, chicken, mushrooms, banana peppers, carrots, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, olives, egg and a balsamic dressing.
And a black bean brownie from Queen Bee Fresh, an all organic, healthy catering company. (Actually, I went back for another because it was so yummy but so small 😉 )
AFTERNOON SNACK: I found my second favorite Larabar– Coconut Cream Pie. Cherry Pie is my fave, but this comes close!
Washed down with a Zephyrhills Watermelon Lime Sparkling Water.
DINNER: I’m a big fan of sloppy joes, but they can be rather unhealthy, so I made my own “sloppy” mix, used extra lean ground beef and put it over a baked potato instead of a bun. It. Was. Delicious! A major win in my book. Steamed asparagus on the side.
Have you ever tried a black bean brownie? Thoughts?
