Day 1 ended not on a clean note, I had made a few loaves of banana bread last week, and there were a few slices left. So I ate em. I had been craving chocolate all day, and that bread had mini chocolate chips in it…and The Hubby invited me to a lunch date at Chipotle. Which normally would mean “there goes my day”; but I was quite smart in my choices. I had a bowl with chicken, black beans, corn & tomato salsa, lettuce and guac. No rice! No Cheese! No sour cream! At 556 calories for the entire bowl, and I only ate half, that is much better than the normal 900 calorie bowl I usually get. Yikes!
Ah well…it’s a new day!
The plan for today:
Breakfast: 159 Calories
- Clean Carrot Cake oatmeal (I added 1 tsp of maple syrup to today’s and it was much better)
- Egg Whites – 2 egg whites, no yolk
- Vanilla Isalean Shake
- Steamed chicken breast
- Steamed veggies
- Chocolate Isa pudding
- Steamed Chicken breast
- Steamed veggies
I also did quite a bit of food prep yesterday. I prepped freezer stuff for the veggie & fruit smoothies for later this week.
Above (From left): Naked Power garden juice for veggie smoothies, kale & spinach processed with coconut water for both fruit and veggie smoothies, coconut water for both, and vanilla chobani yogurt for fruit smoothies. I had 3 cans of coconut water in the fridge and just hadn’t used them. So I figured why not? I would have made ice with regular water, but coconut water has a few more health benefits than plain water.
I also sliced bananas for smoothies, and for an “Ice cream” recipe for later this week. I sliced them, put them on wax paper and stuck them in the freezer. So today I will be packaging those smoothie packs…more to come tomorrow.
This is why I love Naked Juice. they list out the fruits and veggies in the mix. I am saving this one so that I can bust out the juicer and make some of my own! My original idea had V8, but it has too much added sugar for me, so I went with an more natural and organic route.
Today is an office day…so I am looking forward to yoga this evening! What are you doing on this lovely Tuesday?
