SNAP Challenge 2014: Day 5

SNAP Challenge Day 5 |

Mike is loving the chicken taco soup. It’s his favorite meal of the week so far. I have to agree that it’s pretty darn tasty, but not even the soup is going to satisfy my intense cravings for salty snack foods. We’re all out of raisins (I can’t believe I ate so many raisins!!) and almost out of peanut butter… The stuff we have left isn’t very good for snacking. We have a bit of fruit, celery, carrots, spaghetti, oatmeal  and some random produce. Sorry, but there are only so many carrot and celery sticks I can chow down on in a day.

Today we ate:

Breakfast: oatmeal with egg (me), yogurt (Mike)
Snack: raisins (me)
Lunch: chicken taco soup
Snack: peanut butter toast (both), apple (me), banana (Mike)
Dinner: spinach lasagna rolls with extra spinach (me), chicken taco soup (Mike)
Snack: celery with peanut butter (both)
Drink: peppermint tea, lemon water

Mike and I are trying to plan out our weekend. So far, we have a 7 mile run for Saturday, church on Sunday, and some floor shopping both days and that’s it. We wanted to watch the Badger game, but that would involve us having to go to a bar or restaurant. And we can’t. Soooo… looks like we’ll be keeping updated on the game online. A little frustrating, but I guess that just means I’ll have more time to research what type of floors we should install in the house.

Fingers crossed for a Badger win 🙂
