WIAW #14 + video!

I was so sad I missed WIAW last week, but don't worry I'm back!





Breakfast was pretty typical- oats with egg whites, cinnamon, truvia, almond milk, and blueberries with a shot of ACV. A few of you have asked recently if I still drink the Apple Cider Vinegar and the answer is yes! I take a medicine cup full and chase it with water first thing in the morning. I find it helps a ton with my digestion all day long.


Green protein smoothie after the gym! PS I feel like a walking ball of lactic acid today. My abs and whole lower body are SO sore!


Cottage cheese and chocolate peanut butter protein bars for snack. And yes, I ate the cottage cheese right out of the cottage cheese container. Hey, reduce-recycle-reuse, right?


Steak and asparagus for lunch. It doesn't look like much, but boooy it was tasty. Sometimes you just need a little red meat in your life. (I meant to bring sweet potato to go along with this, but I forgot. That's what rushing will do to you!)


Turkey meatloaf muffins with sliced tomato and a side of ketchup, of course.


Chili verde salsa chicken with lettuce, avocado, and roasted poblano pepper. I topped it with greek yogurt and Tapatio. Delicious!

The usual casein pudding for before bed snack. I actually made a quick video for those of you that had questions about it!




Happy Wednesday! :)

    1. Hi Bernadette,

      The casein protein powder tends to be a little thicker, so it works better than regular protein powder... it's always worth a shot though!

  4. I have to make your salsa verde chicken! It looks so good, I love tomatillos.
    I need to order casein, I think I would like chocolate pb best, what is your favorite flavor. I really want to get more serious about my diet, up my weights, and lean out some... I'm running a marathon on the 18th after that it's game on!

    1. Chocolate peanut butter is by far my favorite! I've tried chocolate, and cake batter and didn't care for either as much as the pb :)

  7. Hi Little b, love your blog!! I'm gonna start making cottage cheese like you. I hate the taste of cottage cheese, but I love anything with cinnamon!! I'm having a very hard time motivating myself to eat healthy and workout everyday..I do so good for about 2 weeks then I fail! How do you stay so motivated? Did you ever fail during your journey?
    Thanks,
    Mo:)

    1. I HATED cottage cheese for the longest time... like I couldn't even look at it without getting grossed out, and now I eat it almost every day! I stay motivated by results! Waking up and seeing small changes in my body gives me the push I need to get to the gym on the days that I would rather sleep in. Everyone has slip ups now and then, but it's most important to learn why they happened and how you can prevent them from happening again.

  8. How much is your medicinal cup of ACV? I usually dilute 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water, would you recommend more?

  9. I end so many of my days with protein pudding but I add a tablespoon of flax or other oils a lot of times to get those healthy fats in right before bed. SO delicious. I have always used whey protein but was thinking of switching to casein since it's slower digesting... how is the flavor of casein vs. whey?

    1. The casein is just a lot more thick, which is why I prefer it this way instead of in a shake. I love the choc peanut butter!
