First off, a big congratulations to Jenn at Peas and Crayons on her pregnancy! And she’s still hosting WIAW- veggie loaded while not being able to stomach much more than bagels herself. Impressive!
2 eggs scrambled with red and green peppers and olive oil, topped with Jack’s special salsa. Half a grapefruit on the side.
My morning drinks vary lately, but I’ve mostly been enjoying tea. This week’s choice is chai.
Yesterday I also tried out a Vega pre-workout energizer that I picked up on a whim. It was murkier than I expected, but the flavor tasted like watered down lemon lime gatorade. Not bad!
Some of you may be familiar with their plant-based protein powders, but I just do not like protein powders. However, this fully plant based drink I can get behind. I drank it 20 minutes before my class and I felt a needed boost!
Tanya and I kicking butt at cardio strength.
This class is becoming one of my favorites. I’m flat out exhausted by the end and always feel it the next day.
Vegetable lentil soup and Greek style shrimp over spaghetti squash.
Thank goodness for leftovers. I defrosted the soup and reheated last night’s dinner.
I snacked throughout the afternoon on almonds (probably 3 handfuls) and half a banana. I needed something more and decided to try out a snack sent to me by Vitatop.
Carrot Cake Vitatop topped with peanut butter
Vitalicious sent me a whole box of carrot cake Vitatops to try out. They are 100 calories each and the ingredient list is decent. I don’t like that it has added vitamins or natural flavors, but it tastes pretty good. I won’t be mistaking it for my Nannie’s carrot cake, but for a quick snack, it was a tasty, filling option (the peanut butter probably helped!).
Sweet potato with a bit of butter, kale sautéed in olive oil, lemon and garlic, half a chicken breast topped with avocado feta salsa
I felt like I was eating all day yesterday. I’m definitely a snacker. In fact, I’m going to be that girl that brings her own snacks on vacation. For our honeymoon, I didn’t pack any and ended up eating my body weight in plaintain chips.
This time I’m packing almonds, a big ‘ol bag
…any other easy to pack snack suggestions?
