Exercise: 90 minute Bikram Yoga class
Green Machine Smoothie
I added 3 good-sized strawberries, but I felt like it was sort of a waste since I couldn’t taste them over the banana. I would have rather just eaten them whole, or added flax instead!
Gluten-Free Peanut butter Cookie
Damn that talented baking mother! She was at it again, this time with the cooking class at my school. They made delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookies (1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg=12 delicious cookies). I had one small cookie as a mid-morning snack.
Leftover Chicken Primavera
I made this last night, and the 3 1/2 cups of it I had for lunch was filling and delicious!
This time I added 2 TBSP oats, 2 TSP honey, and a handful of blueberries. I needed something protein filled and filling before Bikram, which I go to straight from work, so I made sure to pack this in my lunch box!
Black Bean Tacos
- 3 corn tortillas
- 1/2 can black beans (low sodium, rinsed and drained)
- 3 TBSP shredded cheese
- 3 TBSP salsa
- shredded carrots
Toast the tortillas on a stove top, heat the beans in the microwave, and then portion and serve! It was a super easy dinner, but honestly it wasn’t that tasty. I should have taken the time to spice up the beans, and it was missing a lot of the protein I was craving. I wish I had yellow corn tortillas, and that I could have added avocado and chicken.
They left me feeling unsatisfied, so I even had…
70% Dark Chocolate 100 Calorie bar from Trader Joes
I split this with my boyfriend, so it was pretty minimal in calories, but it bothers me that I felt like I needed it. Maybe if the dinner had been more satisfying…
