I’m back again!
Thank you so much for all the supportive comments on my last post. I’m really grateful to have such kind readers.
Hope you are ready for a full day’s worth!
For breakfast this morning, I had THE BEST green(ish) smoothie ever 🙂
I think what made this one special was a new protein powder I picked up at Amazing Grace, a local health food store (this packet cost me less than $1).
This smoothie contained 1 cup Silk vanilla soy milk, the NutriBiotic chocolate rice protein powder (which I will be buying again), 1 frozen banana, a few handfuls of spinach and a tablespoon of natural almond butter.
It sort of ended up with a split pea soup tint, huh?
But I think this might also have had something to do with it:
When I finally did break into my snack, I enjoyed some delicious almonds. Ever since I read on Gina’s blog that almonds were a good source of calcium, I have been trying to include them more in my diet.
I tried the Black Bean Mango chili from Health Valley. It was good but not the best I’ve ever had.
Later in the afternoon, I enjoyed some Peeled Snacks!
Today, I tried the Pine-4-Pineapple since dried pineapple is one of my favorite dried fruits.
The Peeled Snacks actually looks like the “real” fruit, they are organic and taste much less processed with no added anything.
The bags are also portion controlled which is great for someone like me who needs help in that area 🙂
You can find these snacks at most Starbucks locations, but I didn’t look to see how much they are. But if you are a fan of dried fruit I suggest you check them out.
After enjoying this snack, I went on an amazing 4 mile run!
For dinner, I had my usual Monday pasta only this time I had Barilla whole grain penne with 365 brand organic pasta sauce, cauliflower and Gimme Lean “sausage” for some protein.
Great day of eats, all tracked and accounted for. The 9:00 rule holding steady. Awesome run. Everything is good!
Man it feels good to be blogging again. I think I might finally be getting out of this funk!
I’m going out of town later in the week and I’m setting up some really great guest posts for you guys.
Hopefully I’ll be able to check in a little bit while I’m gone too.
Thanks for always being so kind to me. “See” you tomorrow 🙂
