Well, my laptop has been out of the shop for a week, but I haven’t been blogging. I’ve missed it, so now I’m back. I was going to highlight some of the things that I’ve been munching on since I last wrote. It hasn’t always been as healthy as I’d like. It’s amazing how having a “health food blog” helps keep me making healthy choices. I like to eat healthy anyway, but this really holds me accountable to live the healthy lifestyle I want to. So, I’ve decided to just start fresh today.
A bowl of cereal and apple juice with ORAC Energy Green powder. I was feeling a little under the weather, stuffed up and a sore throat, and this concoction usually helps. As I sit here this evening, 12 hours later, I feel almost 100% better. I had planned to run today, but I listened to my body, and rested all day. Yep, I was a lazy bum! We have a super busy weekend with 3 weddings, so I really needed to get up to par.
I packed in more nutrition for lunch:
Quinoa salad with tomato, mango, cucumber, onion, jalapeno, avocado, and lime juice.
Organic spinach with hummus and pita chips. I ended up dumping both salads together in one bowl and it was awesome and super healthy.
I also snacked on a frozen fruit bar at some point, and a couple of pieces of random candy (a jelly bean, a gum drop, and a couple of lemon drops). Sweet tooth attack!
Dinner was leftover lettuce wraps from last night, but I didn’t blog them, so here they are:
I ate the tomatoes by themselves, and wrapped up the chicken (with mushrooms, scallions, ginger, garlic, peanut butter, peanuts, hot sauce, and lower sodium soy sauce) in the lettuce leaves, with a dash of hot sauce:
Sorry, no picture of my yummy chocolate frozen yogurt for dessert. Went down the hatch way too fast. I’m so glad I got back to this. Thanks Vicki for lighting a fire under my butt. Tomorrow will be a complete post with wedding pictures too. See you then. Night!
