Day 9: Hmmm...DONUTS

 Today's haunt was: DONUTS.

They invaded the conference room this morning.

Can I just say, how does anyone ever stay fit working in an office!?!?  How in the world are you supposed to fight away these sugar & grease monsters day after day after day?!?  It is a conspiracy, I tell ya,  a conspiracy. Sigh.

So I am noticing that my only cravings now are the ones that are by habit.  Those times of the week when you get your favorite foods.  Today was the ever famous Sushi Hanna Volcano Roll.  Cucumber, avocado, cream cheese, crab meat and white sticky rice wrapped in a seaweed roll drowned in a spicy mayonnaise sauce.  YUM! I like to get this after a hard spin class.  Today was a heavy duty spin class...and I wanted that roll.  Or did I?  Maybe this was just habit by association.  Of course, I resisted.

The other challenge...pizza on a weekend night.  I think it is the cheese I miss...but is it?  Maybe it is just a food associated with the weekend.  And the weekend is associated with happiness...

Hmmm...all this vegan food is making me very philosophical. 

Breakfast:
Oatmeal & Blueberries
Blackberries

Lunch:
Black bean soup with sliced avocado
Orange

Dinner:
I mixed the bland sloppy joe leftovers with the vegan mac and cheese leftovers...and it was not so bad.
Butternut squash oven roasted with Thyme and olive oil
