Good evening friends, how was your Monday? We have had a pretty decent day at my homestead. The weather was gorgeous today – not too hot, not too cold. D had some fun playing with his pals at the gym while Mommy got in a workout. I did do one of Jillian’s Circuit Training Workouts – it was fab!!! I also did 40 minutes on the Step Mill – love that machine.
When I got home I needed a snack so that I would not pass out in the shower. I had an apple and 2 pieces of Swiss cheese.
After I washed off the gym grime, I did a bunch of things around the house and fed my little monkey lunch. He was not happy that I gave him gluten free chicken nuggets – he is not a fan of chicken. I actually got him to eat them dipped in pure maple syrup – he goes for odd combos like his mama.
My lunch was a salad – lettuce, red pepper, zucchini, salsa, hummus and cottage cheese. I also had a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar – yum, yum, yum!!!
Then it was off to the grocery store. Yes, I seem to make multiple grocery store trips but that is because we eat ALL our meals at home and I always run out of something or other. I picked up a big container of organic spinach and came home and made myself this beauty. I did not make this because I don’t eat my veggies. I just see it all over the blog world and had to jump on the wagon.
Into the Vita-Mix went 1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk, 1/2 a packet of Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein Powder, 2 tsp PB, 2 cups of Organic baby spinach and 4 ice cubes. OK, why did I take so long to try this. It was delicious and I could not even tell that there was spinach in there. I am seriously drinking one of these puppies EVERY DAY. I think that it would be good after my AM workout. Looks like I will be stocking up on spinach and almond milk. I also had a Goji Bar with it.
For dinner I had roasted egg plant, a sweet potato and a Sunshine burger with Almond cheese. For the eggplant I just brushed 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the slices before putting them into a 400 degree oven. I just let them cook until they were soft and browned to my liking.
No dessert tonight – I actually had a cup of decaf tea (black) after I was finished with my dinner. I guess my sweet tooth took the night off.
Time to go put on some jammies and relax. See you tomorrow.
