Happy WIAW! Here is the rundown on what I ate yesterday: In the morning I took flax-seed oil, fish oil and a probiotic vitamin with a glass of water and then hit the gym for forty minutes (later at work I ate my chocolate calcium chew).
For breakfast, I had yet another variation of my favorite breakfast, the smoothie. This smoothie turned out very tart because of the passion fruit and cranberry juice, which I found to be a nice surprise after the creamy chocolate smoothies I’ve been drinking lately. This time it included (for 2 servings):
- 2 bananas
- 16 oz cranberry juice
- 3 small stalks celery, including the leaves
- 2 scoops green superfood powder
- 2 tsp. Acai berry powder
- 2 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- half a package of frozen passion fruit pulp
I have meant to replace drinking coffee with drinking green tea with lemon (the combination is supposedly very good for you) and this week I’ve actually been able to resist coffee so far! I use Dr. Mercola’s Organic Royal Matcha Green Tea, which is a beautiful, vibrant color and tastes great. Later I hope to incorporate it into some recipes, like smoothies, cookies, etc. Any ideas?
At work, for lunch I melted an ounce of cheddar cheese (sprinkled with garlic powder) onto the last of the baguette I brought back Sunday from Di Bruno Bros in Philadelphia. There was some leftover food in our office kitchen, so for snacks I grabbed a mini carrot cake muffin and some fruit: grapes, strawberries, blackberries, pineapple and honeydew.
After work I dropped off some Biscaitie to Mikayla and then went shopping at Whole Foods. When I went in a had a short list, but of course I lost all control and left with a bulging bag full of [overpriced] goodies. It was a lot of money, but I’m so excited to eat all the delicious, healthy items I bought, such as Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter! When I got home with the goods, Kiyo had made chicken soup from scratch! He roasted a whole chicken this weekend and used it to make a flavorful broth. Then he added onions, celery, carrots, chicken and parsley. It was the perfect warm meal for the end of a rainy October day.
For dessert, I ate a package of heavenly (and relatively healthy!) organic dark chocolate peanut butter cups by Justin’s Nut Butter.
