Sweet Potato Biscuits

Thanks for all of the well wishes on the job yesterday 🙂 Day 1 was VERY long but extremely productive. I trained for most of the day and then did a lot of the things on my own! For those of you who asked I took a Sales and Event Manager position within walking distance of our apartment. The walk is about .7 miles so i”ll be getting a little added exercise to my daily routine!

Yesterday’s meals were rather boring – Since I worked til almost 9pm I ate lunch and dinner at work (and it’s free, score!)

Breakfast: Special K Vanilla Almond – I know this isn’t new but it’s my new favorite! SO delicious

Lunch: Mixed Greens with goat cheese, candied almonds, dried cranberries, sliced pears and grilled chicken

Dinner: Romaine w/ red onion, cucumbers, tomatoes and grilled chicken with buffalo sauce

Get used to these red bowls because I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of them.

Yesterday I promised the recipe for sweet potato biscuits so here it is.

I have off today for the long hours I put in yesterday but might stop in later to check on my emails…Off to my happy place!!

QUESTIONS: Do you usually pack a lunch or get something while you’re at work??
