A Day of Eats + House Rules

Happy hump day friends! We’re half way to the weekend and things are looking up!

Today I am sharing my meals from yesterday, partially to keep me accountable and partially because it’s nice to have ideas when the usual routine gets a little old. 

Breakfast 7:30am – 1 PerfectFit protein pancake with cinnamon, maple syrup, blackberries, and raspberries. (This recipe is from the Tone It Up nutrition plan, which I finally caved and got. I plan to commit 100% and write a full review after the half marathon.)  

Coffee.

Snack 10am – 1 medium grapefruit (I forgot to take a picture)

 Lunch 12:30pm – leftover Easiest Broccoli Pasta. I’m partially following along with the Skinnytaste meal plan this week!
Green tea 1:30pm

Snack 2pm – Coconut Chia Seed Pudding  (also from the Tone It Up nutrition plan) topped with coconut flakes and cacao nibs
  

Snack 4pm – Cherry pie Larabar (forgot to snap a picture)

Dinner 7pm – Crockpot Chicken and Black Bean Taco Salad
  

I ended the evening with a mug of warm mint tea and 2 pieces of Dove dark chocolate. 

On a side note, we are currently ‘puppy sitting’ (all dogs will forever be puppies to me) for Kris’ parents for 3 weeks and we’ve had to implement some pretty strict house rules for these houligans… 

  
  

It’s sad how much of a kick we get out of our new little catch phrase. 

What ridiculous saying do you use at your house?

Week 1 Meal Planning

Hi! Happy Sunday.  It’s already time again to start planning meals for the week.  Although I do adapt my meals as the week plays out, I usually formulate a plan on Sundays and try my best to stick to it! So this will be the first of a series of weekly meal plans.  I enjoy finding new recipes from around the internet, but I also have some regular go-tos.  Once I find something I like for breakfast or lunch I will eat it over and over again until I can’t even think about it anymore. But for dinners, I like to switch up!

So, here we go:

Breakfasts:

– 1 slice Ezekial 7 sprouted grains bread with Justin’s vanilla almond butter and small glass of OJ

OR

– 1 slice leftover cherry coconut chia seed bread with a hard boiled egg and small glass of OJ

I usually make coffee at work, but I made this awesome find at TJ Maxx yesterday, so I may brew some at home this week.  I think it would be delicious over ice:

Lunches:

– kale chicken wild rice bowl  I had this for lunches last week, and I still can’t get enough.

Snacks:

Green tea with:

– 1/2 cup Fage 0% plain greek yogurt with pomegranate seeds and a drizzle of honey (here is a good tutorial to cut a pomegranate)

OR

– Banana with a handful of almonds

Dinners:

Sunday – Slow cooker chicken chili (with a few adaptions, stay tuned!)

Monday – Kale swiss tomato pizza (I’ve never made a pizza from scratch before, looks like I’ll have to start the crust today)

Tuesday – Leftover chicken chili

Wednesday – Leftover pizza (assuming there will be leftovers)

Thursday – baked salmon, roasted sweet potato, & brussels sprout slaw

Friday – go out to eat

Saturday – go out to eat

I hope you have a great Sunday!
