After a long weekend in the Outer Banks, I was kind of excited to get back into my regular routine. I guess I’m a creature of habit? Or maybe I was just happy to sleep in my bed? Anyways, I shared a few tips for getting back into a healthy routine after vacation and I’ve been putting those ideas into practice!

I had just restocked the fridge with yogurt and fruit so breakfast was this yogurt bowl topped with frozen blueberries and fresh strawberries.

This was so yummy. I might have to add yogurt bowls back into the regular rotation.

The morning was filled with many cups of coffee and around 10:30 I started getting hungry for a snack. I generally try not to buy cereal because I can seriously eat a whole box in one sitting, but I grabbed a box of Special K protein cereal because I was craving something crunchy.


I munched on this while answering emails. Does anyone else eat dry cereal or am I a total weirdo?

Once lunch rolled around, I went down to the cafeteria to make a giant salad.

Veggies, chickpeas, black beans, feta, pita, and hummus made this salad super filling. The afternoon flew by with lots of meetings and work to do but I managed to grab a quick snack from my desk drawer.

I always have random snacks on hand. If I don’t eat something in the afternoon, I’m practically starving by dinner. #dramatic

After work, I stopped at my parent’s house for dinner! I mentioned last week that they moved here and we had our first family dinner on Monday night!

We picked up dinner from Panera and I had the vegetable soup with the kale and quinoa salad. I really love their vegetarian options! The kale and quinoa salad has a nice crunch to it.

I ended up having some nuts and a few pieces of dark chocolate before going to bed. I just have to have something sweet! As much as I loved vacation, I’m glad to be back in my routine.

Are you an afternoon snacker?
