Well, this may not be the best way to kick off the documentation of my healthy meals, but, hey- I said I would document it all- the good, the bad and the fattening.
Mondays are always tough. Corey has class until 8PM, and I don’t usually get back from my own class until 9:30PM. By the time I walk in the door, the last thing I feel like doing is making dinner. This is why Corey started a little Monday-night tradition for the two of us. Drum roll please…
Pollo Tropical and The Bachelor!
Please don’t feel intimidated by our upscale classiness.
My meal looked like this:
I normally get the smaller size, but Corey accidentally got me a large this time. I definitely could’ve scarfed the whole thing down because I was famished, but I maintained slight self control and split it down the middle. I saved the other half in the fridge.
To be fair, the smaller size of this meal at Pollo Tropical is pretty low-calorie. It has around 330 calories.
Later on, I may or may not have had a bowl of Publix Premium No Sugar Added Light Vanilla Ice Cream, topped with half of a crumbled, whole-wheat chocolate chip muffin that I made earlier in the week!
I was planning to post the recipe for the muffins, but they actually turned out to be pretty crappy. They’ve only been successful as an ice-cream topping.
Now that my hunger and sweet tooth has been satisfied, onto more important things:
While I’m happy that Michelle is gone, I will definitely miss the crazy that she brought to the show. But, seriously, Brad needs to just get down to it and send everyone home so he and Emily can start their perfect life together!
Who are you rooting for on this season of the Bachelor?
And for an extra important question from my co-commentator and Bachelor expert, Corey:
Will Emily say “yes” to the fantasy suite next week?!
