…and I’m not talking about a wedding! :)
Today was full of random eats, but the good news is I am slowly but surely eating up all the food I have in the house. To start off the morning, it was something new…
GREEN BERRY MONSTER!!!
1 cup Oat Dream oat milk
1 cup frozen fruit (raspberries, cherries, boysenberries & mango)
2 cups spinach
3 tbsp. berry acai hemp protein powder
Honestly, the addition of the hemp protein made it a little too gritty for my taste. I loved the mixture of the berries and bananas, but the protein powder muddled that too much. Next time, no hemp protein. I’m going to go out and have to splurge on some yummy vanilla brown rice protein powder! Along with a nice Caribou coffee with 2% milk…
Mid-morning, I had a good ol’ banana (one of the only fruits left in the house!).
Lunch took care of my something borrowed… I borrowed some honey whole wheat bread to have a delicious AB+J along with a side salad of spinach, cuc, onion, sunflower seeds, green pepper and Organicville Sesame Goddess Dressing. I had avocado in the mix, but I took it out because it just did NOT taste right :(.
The afternoon flew by, thanks to the fact that (a) I got to leave work at 4:15pm, (b) I left early to go pick up my hemmed bridesmaid dress for this weekend! I am soooo excited for the wedding – there are going to be tons of fabulous pictures, and my college bestie Jess is going to make the most gorgeous bride!
Before I left work, I had a yogurt parfait I got from Caribou Coffee (from the early morning coffee run) – lowfat yogurt, granola, blueberries & strawberries. It was yum-o!
After I got home (at 5:15pm – woowoo! That hasn’t happened in forever!), I went for a quick handful of plain popcorn to munch on while dinner was reheating in the microwave freshly cooking :).
Then I devoured something old by immediately heating up the remainder of my Oaty Cakes (recipe courtesy of Ms. Polly) from Sunday morning. Smeared with about 1 tbsp. almond butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and a hefty handful of blueberries (my something blue!), I totally devoured this delicious stack.
After dinner, I enjoyed almond butter (about 1/2 tbsp.) with half a naner before heading out the door for a nice 6 mile walk…
The long walk was much needed today – my monkey mind was in full force, swinging from limb to limb, thought to thought (props to one of my favorite ladies, Elizabeth Gilbert, for coining the monkey mind phrase in possibly the best book ever, “Eat, Pray, Love”). I may not have solved world peace or anything, but I came back from the gorgeous walk a whole lot saner.
When I got back, I just had to have the other half…
Now, I am pretty pooped, not going to lie. I’m going to finish up stretching, take a quick shower, get in my comfy jammies and head to bed early. This girl has 5:30am Vinyasa Flow with Deb to attend to tomorrow morning!
Anybody else getting up early for a workout? If so, just think, you are not the only one! :P
