Busy days, eventful evenings, and jam-packed weekends call for simple and delicious What I Ate Wednesday eats!
The frenetic pace of summer life continues… As much as I love the warm weather, sunshine, and go-go-go attitude that this season brings, I sometimes miss the long evenings of snuggling up on the couch for hours. But life without constant change would be boring, right?? But you want to know what doesn’t change? My obsession with my fav morning smoothie…
That’s right, I started my day with a banana before the gym and a Chocolate Cherry Beet Smoothie afterwards. And it’s a good thing I’m such a creature of habit because I forgot to take a pic of either. Womp womp… (Pic from last week)
We crushed leg day this morning which always seems to make me famished all day. Baby muscles gotta eeeeeat! A monster apple held me over.
didn’t have time was too lazy to pack a lunch ahead of time and this was the best I could come up with in the morning. The bowl of plain mixed greens (honestly, what was I thinking?) looked much more appealing with some balsamic vinegar and crunchy chickpeas I found in the back of my snack stash. Carrots and cukes dipped in lotttts of hummus rounded out the haphazard meal.
After endless spreadsheets and a one-hour-turned-two-hour meeting on the most complicated and frustrating task in my job description, I ran straight to the fridge for a snackity. I’ve been experimenting with a bar/bite/cake-ish recipe using banana, peanut butter, and Manitoba Harvest hemp seeds. It’s not perfect but it’s super filling and just needs a few tweaks. Keep an eye out!
John lured me home for a bike ride instead of yoga and it turned out amazing. A quick 8 miles in the sun was just what I needed after a long day. We came back ravenous and had chips with vegan cheese, sautéed fajita veggies (onions, mushrooms, peppers), and some refried beans for dipping. Let’s call it deconstructed nachos….?
I had to run right back out the door for a work session (I’m doing some contract work on the side) at a local coffee shop. Of course I biked and of course after being gone just over an hour, I was hangry again. I’ve been eyeing this chocolate bar at the store for weeks and finally bought it. Sadly, it was just aight. The juicy organic strawberries totally made up for it. So of course I ate almost the entire container.
And that’s it friends! Back on the grind tomorrow! Hope you all have a wonderful week- get out and enjoy summer!!
