Happy Hump Day Everyone! I think after two 4 day weekend in a row I am struggling to get through the day. I am day dreaming about the weekend and getting back to the beach and being outdoors. Sitting at a desk doesn’t seem like so much fun! What about you? Well go ahead and get aboard the struggle bus with me and while you hitting the for your viewing pleasure take a look at some of my eats for this past week.
Breakfast: I got this idea from Chris Powell’s book The 7 day Carb Cycle Solution. I haven’t read through the whole book yet so I can’t say much about it, but this was delish! It was a 1/2 cup of gluten free granola, 1/2 cup of unsweetened Almond milk, 1 cup of water, and 1 scoop of protein powder. Mix the Almond milk, water and protein and pour over the granola.
Snack: This was something that I could grab and go. A handful of grapes and about 3 ounces of cheese. The cheese added protein needed to feel full and the grapes add that little bit of sweetness.
Salad and me go together like Bert and Ernie so I can have it for every meal just about.
Don’t believe me? See Exhibit A
This contained romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, feta cheese and 2 hard-boiled eggs. You really can’t go wrong with a salad, just be careful with the dressing you choose!
This ended up being my lunch and dinner on two seperate days. I just made enough chicken for the week on my grill and reheated. Salad was romaine lettuce, tomato and red onion.
This salad was romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, carrots and celery. I added these kabobs with Steak, pineapple and zucchini. So yummy!
Dinner: I was really craving pasta but I haven’t had regular pasta in a while and I remembered this Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Alfredo I made a few months ago. So I whipped it up and it was just as delicious as I remembered. For the recipe click here.
Splurges: I am human and I was on vacation so I had a few splurges. The first one I kept on the cleaner side so July 4th and the other was a pure cheat meal!! The first was strawberries, cool whip and blueberries. That was it, no sugar added. A sweet treat for the holiday. The second was a S’More. Which is enuff said I wanted some more!!
