Snack Attack?

I was having serious cravings yesterday. Sometimes they are legit and I truly need to eat something! Sometimes they are not - I just want the sheer pleasure of eating! I'm trying to be discerning. I have been known to sabotage a week's worth of effort with one snack attack. So I keep an arsenal handy. You probably do too. Here's what mine looks like today (usually there is a nonfat/sugar free yogurt stuck in there) ...This is where I start before I turn to heavier stuff, like peanut butter on the apple!

Since reading Maribel's recipe for roasted veggies, I've been wanting to try it. I needed a change up from the many salad greens and chicken breasts I've had for lunch lately. These are my veggies before roasting!

Beautiful huh?

Paired with a small thin veal steak (palm-sized) and onion sautéed in a little olive oil and
spices, this made the most delicious and filling lunch!

I'm ready for a change up in exercise too! The bike has served me well, but today I have a sore throat, perhaps from riding the bike in the cold wet weather yesterday. Today I'll try a dvd! Here's to crunching with you ladies!!

OK, can I join you for lunch tomorrow? Looks wonderful, especially the mushrooms (can't get those here, and I love them!) You are doing so well!
