Thanks for the support
Thank you times a million for all the comments on my last post! You guys are too sweet, for real.
Guess what? It’s Monday, which means you get to see everything I ate today. Are you ready?
This one contained 1 cup of Almond Breeze (unsweetened vanilla), 1 frozen banana, a tablespoon of peanut butter, a few big handfuls of spinach and 1/2 tbsp of maca powder.
I had heard of maca powder before, but wasn’t really sure what it was until I read about it recently on Gina’s blog. Apparently maca is an awesome thing!
Not so awesome was the $8.99 price tag at Whole Foods. But I decided to try it for a while to see what it was all about.
I used another “new” product in my smoothie today: organic spinach.
I am trying to buy more organic produce and spinach is one of the 12 you should get organic, known as “The Dirty Dozen.”
Mid-morning, I snacked on some mixed nuts. I also had one cup of black coffee.
For my afternoon snack, I had a Primal Strip.
As I was wrapping up things with work, I started to get really hungry again so I grabbed these on the way to meet my running group.
Last week when I was trying to think of more natural post-workout drinks, I remembered this little electrolyte mix packets they sell at Whole Foods.
It was very refreshing…both in taste and cost effectiveness!
For dinner, I did my part to replace my glycogen stores, ha ha.
I made Barilla whole grain pasta and topped it with 365 brand organic pasta sauce (roasted red pepper) with broccoli and Gimme Lean sausage mixed in. Plus a breadstick on the side.
It was delicious and even slightly spicy!
I’d noticed that my Monday eats are becoming rather repetitive (green smoothie, pasta, etc.) so I’m thinking of moving the day around or perhaps doing more than one day a week.
Just bare with me 😉 Good night!
