Full, But Not

This Honduran  craziness makes my tummy so strange. I’ve felt hungry all day, but not much actually sounds good. I’ve eaten, but still just feel empty? It’s very strange.

I got all my work done today! Mondays are my busiest day at work, and I was wondering how today would go with the teleworking. The set-up we used worked great! It was a bit slow, but other than that, I think it will work fine if they really do start supporting this more often.

To quiet the tummy rumbling this afternoon, I had a snack.


Oikos and Fage were both on sale this weekend! Wahoo! I crumbled up one of my blueberry chia muffins into a plain oikos and ate that while working. I love having baked goods crumbled in yogurt – the different textures and the sweet/tart combination always makes me happy.

I really wanted to have an even bigger snack that this, but I didn’t want to ruin my appetite since Nick came home at lunch. Because we were both already at home, I knew dinner would be earlier than normal, and I was right!

Nick asked for a big salad tonight and since that actually sounded good to him, I pushed tonight’s dinner plans to tomorrow and put together a big salad spread.


Mine had:

  • romaine
  • hard boiled egg
  • yellow tomato
  • black olives
  • a tiny bit of crumbled bacon
  • homemade avocado dressing, which was thick but really good

Nick added beer butt chicken to his, but I just wasn’t feelin’ that since I had some at lunch.


The avocado dressing just had

  • about 1/2 of that huge avocado I opened up today
  • the juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1-2 tsp canola oil

Whir it all up in the food processor or blender until creamy. You could add more liquid or something like mayo/yogurt to make it thinner. I liked the overall texture and once I mixed my salad together, it coated everything nicely.


I also made me some more “garlic bread” on a hot dog bun. Nick went and got himself a little loaf of french bread, but I know he’ll want more the next 2 nights with dinner so I let him have that and just made one of these for me. I just split the hot dog bun, spread on a little olive oil spread, sprinkled on some garlic salt + parsley and toasted in the toaster oven. Perfect!

I just finished packing up my lunch for tomorrow and doing some other things I needed to do (cut celery, freeze a package of chicken, make bean dish for lunches, etc) and now all that’s left is to make the bed, prep breakfast, and have a snack!

My stomach already feels empty again. I know it may be because I had 2 salads today, but this hunger is just ridiculous. I’m hoping we both get back to normal in the next day or two.

I have a feeling a bowl of my microwave popcorn is going to appear tonight  🙂

Is there a food that always makes you full/satisfied when you have it? I feel like nothing is working today, but it may just be this weirdness.
