Best salad ever!

Guess what I had for breakfast this morning? Haha…I promise that will be changing up a bit soon 😉 For those who don’t know, it’s oatmeal with PB and banana.

Mid-morning, I tried something for a snack that I hadn’t had in a while.

I had some eggs in my fridge that I needed to try and use up this week so I thought, why not make some hard boiled eggs? It was yummy (even though it kinda fell apart when I peeled it) and made a great proteinous snack.

I’m not kidding when I tell you that today’s lunch was the best salad combo I have ever made!

Romaine, cucumber, 3 oz packet of salmon, 1/4 cup chick peas, 2 generous tbsp of classic hummus….I can’t even tell you how good this was. I definitely think the salmon + hummus was what made it but everything else fit together nicely too.

Mid-afternoon, I snacked on some mixed nuts before heading to the gym for a killer upper body workout: we warmed up for 5 minutes on the treadmill, then did every exercise for triceps and lats that we could think of, plus a few abs and back exercises as well. Then we rounded it out with 10 more minutes on the tread and I climbed a bit (incline) just to give it some variety.

I am going to be sore tomorrow!

For dinner, I made grilled zucchini and grilled tofu.

I will share the details with you in a later post which will focus on cooking with canola oil. I can’t wait! Ok, so I can.

Have a great night everyone! Thanks for reading.
