Happy 27th birthday to the best big sister, Ina! I love you!!
I’m back for another round of What I Ate Wednesday hosted by the lovely Jen!
I didn’t eat super clean this past weekend because my sister, parents, and friends were in town. My sister and I may have overdosed on HipCityVeg, and we enjoyed every second of it. If you’re ever in Philadelphia, please go there. Whether you’re a vegetarian or meat-lover, it will not disappoint.
Anyways, I cleaned up my eats as soon as Monday rolled around, and thank goodness yesterday’s meals were a tad bit more exciting than last week’s chicken and broccoli that I had for every meal.
Meal 1: 1/2 cup oats with frozen blueberries and flax meal, 1 organic cage-free egg and 1/2 cup egg whites
Meal 2: chicken, sweet potato fried in coconut oil, and spinach
Meal 3: lemon poppyseed greek yogurt! Last week, I combined some paleo lemon poppyseed cookies that I made with greek yogurt, and it was one of the best things I ever ate. I didn’t feel like baking cookies again just to mix them with my yogurt, so I figured I’d just make lemon poppyseed greek yogurt.
Lemon Poppyseed Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
- juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tbsp)
- 1/2 tsp poppyseed
- about 3/4 packet of Truvia
Directions: combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly before serving.
Voila , so quick and easy!
Meal 4: veggie burger with turkey bacon on Ezekiel bread and broccoli because I was slackin’ on the veggie front today
Meal 5/PWO: protein shake with a banana…I’m trying out this new-to-me brand of protein, and I’m loving it so far! Does anyone else associate peaches & cream with this song by 112 from back in the day?! I definitely just cracked up watching the music video.
Meal 6: I’ve been playing around with casein “cakes” as my last meal of the day. I used banana casein for this one. I’m still trying to get it a little more moist. Even though it was kind of rubbery, I still ate it topped with a tbsp of all natural peanut butter and raw cacao nibs. Peanut butter makes anything edible in my book.
I feel like I have to run a lot of errands, but I’m not sure what. Getting my haircut is quickly becoming my number one priority. It is getting out of control long.
I’ll leave you with this beautiful picture of me.
Stay warm east coasters!!!
Question of the day:
Do you drink protein shakes? If so, do you stick with chocolate/vanilla flavors or fruity flavors?
I have always stuck with chocolate/vanilla, but the fruity flavored proteins are starting to grow on me! I wish I could buy a variety pack from somewhere.
