English Muffins, Tomato Soup For Lunch, Other Recent Meals



Okay, so I’m still in the sudden phase of randomly deciding to eat an English muffin with peanut butter for breakfast instead of oatmeal.  I mentioned last week that it’s weird and unheard of for me to NOT eat oatmeal for breakfast — but it’s happening with no rhyme, reason, or planning. Who am I?

I mean, an English muffin with peanut butter does make sense for me as it was my go-to breakfast every day for like seven years before switching to oatmeal.  So it’s not that far off for me to go back to eating it again, I guess.

These are old English muffin photos from previous posts on the blog but I do sometimes skip jelly and dice apple on top as I did in the past.

Side note: Whatever happened to the cinnamon raisin English muffins at Trader Joe’s?! I haven’t seen them in so long – why would they stop making them? Didn’t other people like them as much as I did?!

Lately, I’m also deciding some weekdays to have tomato soup for lunch. I’m really not a soup eater unless I’m sick so it’s slightly strange (although becoming normal) when I heat up tomato soup with toasted Ezekiel bread and melted mozzarella cheese for lunch.

However, I have not been able to restock Trader joe’s Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Low Sodium Soup. What gives? Where is it? Why do they do this to me?

I’m still eating salads regularly.

In this salad from Chopt was:

  • romaine
  • corn
  • crispy chickpeas
  • avocado
  • hearts of palm
  • pickled onions
  • beets
  • lemon tahini

I started to have them mix the lemon tahini into the salad rather than order it on the side. They are good about not drowning the salad in dressing — and I like it much better this way. It’s nicely chopped and mixed all together.


And nothing beats my favorite slice of whole wheat pizza with a salad. We are at the point now where I walk into Mario’s and the guy starts boxing up my slice before I even order and pay.

My son made a beautiful mug of hot chocolate with one of the cookie hangers from Trader Joe’s. Looks so pretty, right?!
