Breakfast out didn't break my calorie budget!
Thursday, October 12, 2017
This morning I met a friend for breakfast at First Watch. I planned ahead what I would order - the Sunrise Granola Bowl - fruit, yogurt, granola...yum! When I arrived and saw the seasonal menu, I decided the Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal looked great too. I checked my phone for the nutrition info and saw it was in the same range as my previous choice and went ahead and ordered it. It was really good, and I was glad to make a healthy choice.
The oatmeal came with a side - a cranberry orange muffin. I had already planned not to have it at breakfast - it was a good thing because that oatmeal sure filled me up! I boxed up the muffin and took it home for lunch. My children eyed me jealously as I enjoyed it along with an apple-cinnamon smoothie.
Because I planned ahead, it was easy to budget my calories and stay in range today.
