New Veggie Burgers

I have been eyeing these Veggie Burgers at Costco for a while, but didn’t want to get them because of the nutrition info.DSCN0924

DSCN0927They are a little low on protein for a girl who uses veggie burgers as her main source of protein some days (when breakfast is cereal and lunch is PB&J…).

 

But, I knew based on their similarities to Dr.P burgers that I would love them, so I went for it. And I was right – LOVE IT!

 

 

 

 

I stuffed a patty into a wrap with hummus, spinach and tomatoes for lunch.DSCN0946

My co-worker was eating pretzels today and totally gave me a craving, so I went next door to grab some to go with my lunch. DSCN0941 DSCN0949

 

 

 

DSCN0935My morning snack was a container of blubes.

 

 

 

 

 

I was actually super hungry all day today and ate half of this Kashi bar around 11am, plus some trail mix. I figured it would push back lunch, but it didn’t I was hungry at 12pm on the dot!DSCN0940

After lunch I ate an apple and the rest of my trail mix. Then, I was overly full! I am so bad with reading my hunger level :(

I stopped at the store on the way home to pick up an ingredient for dinner and ended up buying croutons and eating a few handfuls of them. Then, I ate a cup of cereal and a handful of crackers. Once again I ruined my dinner, but I finally realized why/how.

The first thing I do when I get home is go to the kitchen. It’s kinda the way I unwind after a long day (some people get a drink, so it could be worse). I’m going to make the kitchen/food off limits for 30 minutes after I get home each day to get distracted with anything else. If after that time I want a snack that’s fine, but I think if I find something else to do I’ll be fine.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while but this is the first time I have commented…

    Maybe instead of eating to unwind, unwind with a nice cup of herbal tea (hot or cold). It usually works for me! =]

    Oh, I’ve been scoping out those veggie burgers at Costco every single time I go in! I didn’t buy them for the same reason-I think I might have to break down and get them now!

    I always clean when I get home, then cook dinner. I also have my afternoon snack around 4PM though, so I’m not usually hungry as soon as I get home. Can you push your afternoon snack back, or bring another small snack to eat before you go home?
