So today has been a pretty low-key, lazy day…which is just fine with me! I have been enjoying Summer and relaxing. The weather has been rather gloomy and cold today for some odd reason, so I didn’t get to soak up any rays. Instead, I spent the day catching up on re-runs of Dog The Bounty Hunter. Does anybody ever watch that show? My sister got me hooked on it!
This morning, I enjoyed a cute little breakfast cookie:
I topped it with nonfat plain greek yogurt aka clouds of fluff. :)
Although the majority of my day has been pretty lazy, I did have a successful run on the treadmill this morning. Another 3 miles down! I am getting more and more excited for my race with every run that I do!
For lunch, I used one of my new favorite products: Ezekiel tortillas!
plus a baby orangie:
I filled a wrap with my turkey, turkey pepperoni, string cheese stick, laughing cow, spinach leaves,and alfalfa sprouts. Then I stuck it on the George Foreman grill for about 5 minutes. The cheesestick was a great addition because it got all nice and melty inside. mmmm
Oh, I also did 2 loads of laundry in-between my lazy-ness! :D
Then I proclaimed that it was time for a snack, so I headed out to the kitchen and made an amazing shake…green monster style:
So I realized that I really need to buy some new tall glasses for my juices and green monsters because you all probably get tired of seeing this same KU glass every time, haha. I will work on that soon! :D
Anyways, this green monster was especially delicious because I used the secret ingredient.
Here is all that went into the blender:
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3 cups of spinach leaves (estimated)
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 avocado (secret ingredient!)
Avocado should ALWAYS be put in shakes/smoothies. Seriously, you need to try this if you haven’t yet! It makes it SO creamy, smooth, and delicious. I gulped this down in no time!
For dinner, I wanted something simple, so I decided to have dinner on Amy tonight:
along with a side of steamed broccoli:
This was my first time trying this meal and I really like it! But I wasn’t surprised though because how could I NOT love anything from Amy’s kitchen?! I totally recommend that you give this meal a try!
For dessert, I ventured into the freezer since I have been trying to eat up all my frozen baked goodies…so I can make more of course!
I knew what I wanted when I laid eyes on Heather’s (from Heather Eats Almond Butter) chocolate chip banana nut butter muffins. These are seriously the best muffins I have ever made/eaten. The nut butter put in this recipe makes it a million times better!!
And you know i covered the top of the muffin with some more nut butta lovin’. ;)
I also had a couple handfuls of Moose Munch!
I don’t turn down anything that has caramel corn in it! Yum!
And now I’m about to watch So You Think You Can Dance! Wooohooo! Man, I really sound like one big couch potato don’t I?!? Oh well! :D
Will YOU be watching So You Think You Can Dance tonight?
