Well folks, its my last day in Kentucky until next Wednesday night!
This morning, well yesterday actually, I had a hankering for a good protein smoothie, so I picked up some protein powders at Whole Foods yesterday to have before and when I leave. Since we’re leaving so early in the morning and I’m always hungry no matter what time I wake up, I’m going to make myself a smoothie in the morning to hold me over until we stop somewhere for breakfast. But I have lots of snacks packed with me just incase where we stop is somewhere like McDonald’s. Ick, I just can’t do it anymore, I know too much ;-) But they do have good coffee! I hope they don’t inject their coffee with sodium, haha.
Breakfast this morning was a chocolate-peanut butter-banana smoothie; I used this powder which was awesome and packs 20+ g protein:
I added 1/2 frozen banana and 1 cup of 1% milk from the fridge. This was so creamy & filling, what a great idea it was :)
I made one Kashi 7 grain waffle topped with PB to round it all out. I swear, I don’t know what I would do without peanut butter. My life would suck.
I actually haven’t packed lunch yet and I may even buy it today because we’re just about out of everything. Either way, you’ll have to wait for a later lunch post or perhaps combined with the dinner post.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day :)
Lunch – Cashew butter & preserves sandwich on whole wheat; broccoli w/ cheese sauce; applesauce. Snacks – oranges, granola, Fage 2% with strawberry.
The Fage 2% with strawberry was so good. I liked it just as much as the cherry! I’m going to have to get more of these :)
Friday night for dinner we had Subway; I got a black forest ham sub on wheat with cheese, veggies and mustard; plus some Sun Chips!
We went to drop off our doggie at my parents’ house :( So on the way home, I emotionally ate some ice cream. No really, I actually wanted it and I got just a single scoop of the lowfat, no sugar added turtle caramel chip in a cup from Baskin Robbins. I couldn’t find this flavor on their website, but I assume its the same nutritionally as the other “BRight” choices.
I’m pretty sure I went to the gym after work too, but I couldn’t tell you what all I did. I think I ran 3 miles and did some abs and stretching, haha!
