Now that I'm (finally) done with school, I have a lot of extra time on hands and being as bored as I was at work today, I decided to be productive. Shocked? I know I am. Not only did I write out my workouts for the week, but I even created a cute little chart to write them in! Yay me! I can't put it up right now because the internet is against me, but it will definitely be up tomorrow. Feel free to use it if you'd like (:
Breakfast was thrown together in a matter of seconds since I was on the run. Ezekiel sprouted grain bread with the crunchy almond butter I picked up at Trader Joe's in Pittsburgh over the weekend.
Seriously this stuff was GOOD. Wayyyyy better than the first almond butter I tried, which I think was the blue diamond kind? This also had flaxseed in it! Double score.
For a mid-afternoon snack, I whipped me up a blueberry banana and chia seed smoothie! After reading so many posts in the blog world with bloggers adding chia seeds to just about everything, I was totally stoked to finally find some at a health food store nearby. Totally. Stoked.
I really like the texture that chia seeds add to smoothies. I mean, yeah, they're kinda on the slimy side but I love the crunch they add. What I don't love however is when they get stuck in my teeth! lol
Lunch was pretty much my fav. I recreated my favorite house salad from Up A Creek - spring greens with chickpeas, black olives, red onion, cucumber and raspberry vinaigrette. Mmmm delish!
And finally dinnertime! I actually tried something new tonight - the sweet potato/baked beans combo that I've been seeing over and over again through the blogsphere. Really really quick and easy to throw together at work. It was way more filling than I thought it'd be, I couldn't even eat it all! Definitely will make this again whenever I need a fast dinner.
Notice anything about my meals today? No meat! Props if you got that right. I've been leaning in this direction for a while lately and I think it's time I just do it. It's crazy how you really don't even miss meat. I don't feel less full or less satisfied. Plus I'm interested in learning a few new veggie recipes.
Any other vegetarians out there? Vegans maybe? What is your favorite go-to recipe when you're craving a good, fast all veggie meal?
