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.)
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?
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:
– 1 slice Ezekial 7 sprouted grains bread with Justin’s vanilla almond butter and small glass of OJ
– 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:
– kale chicken wild rice bowl I had this for lunches last week, and I still can’t get enough.
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)
– Banana with a handful of almonds
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!
