Hey y’all! I’m watching my Heels beat ClemPson hehe right now. If I could not have gone to UNC, I would’ve applied to Clemson…seems to be a great school.
Anywho…thanks for all your comments this week. I’ve enjoyed catching up with y’all and hearing your thoughts. It means so much to me!
Breakfast today was OIAJ! There’s a little smirk on my face every time I get to the bottom of a jar when there’s about 1-2 Tbsp of nut butter left, because I know there’s oats in a jar on the way. Today a finished the jar of Sunflower Seed butter, the majority of which was used for my Balls of Energy. In their honor, I made
Jar of Energy Oats 😉
In the jar:
- 1 Tbsp-ish of Sunflower Seed Butter
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats, water, almond milk, greek yogurt
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 smashed banana
- sprinkles of sea salt and cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp Twister Power powder
- 1 tsp maple extract
- toppings: Ball of Energy crumbled, 1/2 sliced banana, and a few raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries
I scraped out every last bit of that sunflower seed butter 😉 YUMMY! I am already excited about breakfast tomorrow as I type this hehe
I had 8 oz. of leftover green juice from yesterday for my snack after I taught this morning.
When my tumbly started rumbling for lunch, I really just wanted veggies. I keep craving them this week. So, I tried to clean out my leftovers in the frige but ended up adding some more…
I had 1/2 a sweet potato with black beans and sexy spice (I’ve never put cinnamon on black beans before, but don’t knock it til you try it…it wasn’t bad hehe), a little bit of goat cheese, an organic Braeburn apple with sexy spice, a pile of veggies (Brussels sprouts/broccoli/carrots/cauliflower/edamame). Veggie fix: check!
And a little dessert: peanut flour sauce (it looks like a Ying-Yang sign that we used to draw in middle school) and a cup of chai tea. (It’s amazing to me how my palette has changed to not crave coffee in merely a few days.)
Workout today: taught Zumba and went to Hot Yoga at One Heart Yoga to detox this afternoon.
Dinner was a usual favorite…Sweet Tomatoes! I got to catch up with my old boss and friend Brooke who is due in 5 weeks, and I haven’t seen her in months! It’s so fun having friends who are pregnant as I get to learn so much from them.
I had the beasts of all salad beasts for starters. I piled on tons of veggies and beans that looked fresh and crunchy and yummy. I tried wheatberries for the first time…LOVE the texture. It’s nice when you can try something new at a restaurant as it’s already prepared and if you don’t like it, you haven’t lost grocery money on an item. Also, Whole Foods bulk bin is good for trying a little of this, a little of that.
Then some bean and barley soup in veggie broth. All veggies! So yummy! On the side, 2 small pieces of cantaloupe with cottage cheese and a few bites of a whole wheat sugar-free banana muffin top. The muffin top wasn’t that great, so I decided not the waste the calories.
Because I had a beautiful dessert on the brain…
I had this x2 (oops!). I was still not quite full after the first
pathetic excuse for a bowl hehe.
As a whole, it was full of guilty, negative, judgmental thoughts as I have to give myself grace that I can’t be everywhere for everyone. If I could have one super power, it would definitely be being able to be in more than 1 place at once. Do you ever feel like that?
That’s all for today. Good night, bloggies. Sweet dreams!
Something to read and ponder…
