Happy Wednesday! Can I say how excited I am for today since I am only working two days this week then I have another 4 day weekend! Yeah I am not made about it either. Hoping the weather is a little better this weekend so I can hit the beach.
I have to admit my first day of vacation last week was horrible. I ate like crap and I totally felt it the next day. I tried to make up for it the rest of the weekend. Here are some of my eats!
Breakfast: I needed to fuel up for my hike so I started my day with 2 eggs, one kielbasa dog and a cup or so of watermelon. If I wasn’t hiking for two hours I would have left out the kielbasa. Either way it was super yummy and really hit the spot!
Morning Snack: This has to be my absolute favorite hummus but I also got a spinach and artichoke hummus which is a close second!
Lunch: Coming back from my hike I was famished, and I just got back from grocery shopping. I whipped up a great big salad (romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, and hand shredded gouda cheese) and a burger using 90% lean ground beef. I added a slice of cheese and a dollop of BBQ sauce.
Mid Afternoon snack: I have to recycle this photo because it was my plain on protein shake. I used Cytosports Muscle Milk in Raspberry Cheesecake flavor (picture shows the Graham Cracker flavor which is my favorite but I ran out), 18 ounces of water, 1/2 cup of almond milk, with 6 frozen strawberries, and 1 TBSP of PB2. So yum!
Dinner: I was trying out a new recipe I found via Pinterest and this coleslaw was so light and refreshing. I never really cared for coleslaw mostly because restaurant served it dripping in mayo and dressing to the point it was soggy. The addition of the apple and using half mayo and half greek yogurt this tasted more like veggies with dip versus drenched cabbage. For the recipe click here.
