So stoked that some of you have agreed to participate in the What's Beautiful challenge with me! I think it will be so much fun and setting goals for myself is one of my favorite things to do. Today is considered a rest day from the gym, but since I'm committed to being active all through October, B and I are going to take Charley for a walk later this afternoon.
Now on to yesterday's eats!
The usual! Cottage cheese and toast for mid morning snack. This bread is actually Food For Life's gluten free bread (instead of Ezekiel) and it's really good! Definitely has a different texture to it, almost more like a pound cake- but it's great toasted with cinnamon and coconut oil.
For lunch I had a protein style turkey burger with lettuce and tomato and a yam on the side. I love putting coconut oil and cinnamon on my yams!
I'm clearly on a burger kick lately because for my afternoon snack I had a protein style bison burger! Roasted veggies on the side were AWESOME. I haven't made my veggies like this in a long time and it was so good... just drizzle a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and then bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. Even B loved these!
I got home from work late so unfortunately I didn't have time to try the new recipe I had planned, but I'll definitely try it tonight! For dinner I just made a quick over easy egg with 2 additional egg whites and an almond flour pancake on the side. I clearly devoured the pancake before I remembered to snap a pic. Darn.
I've been switching up my pre-bed snack lately and adding almond milk to my casein pudding instead of water and then freezing it for about 45 minutes. It tastes like chocolate peanut butter soft serve! I'm also using Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk now and I highly recommend it. They just recently came out with the unsweetened version of the vanilla and it's pretty much to die for.
Happy Wednesday and Happy Birthday to my Dad :)
