Just a quicky today! I need to get out to go shopping for this coming weeks good eats! Where I live it is not a quick trip to the store to get some of the more 'exotic' or organic things. It is a minimum 3 hr. venture. One hour drive each way, plus shopping, usually a meal with my hubby out and a little stop by another shop. We make it a 'date day' so it doesn't seem like such a chore.
Friday started off with a protein smoothie. It was yummy. However, I am honestly not a fan of starting off my day with a liquid breakfast. I workout hard in the evening and come breakfast time I am pretty hungry.
I must have been too hungry to remember to take a picture of snack, it was albacore tuna and an apple. I chopped the apple up into the tuna.
Lunch was leftovers from the night before. It was supposed to be a bouillabaisse, but the ingredients and the nutrition were so similar to the Seafood Chili, I just saved myself the work and packed leftovers.
Afternoon snack was chopped up apple and pear with blueberries and walnuts. Since a fruit serving is one small-medium piece of fruit, I ate 1/2 of a small apple, 1/3 of a medium pear, and 1/4 cup of blueberries.
After work I had my favorite lower body workout! Lunges, squats, deadlifts, skater squats, plyo in and outs, leg abduction and leg adduction and hip thrusters. This workout drains me! But the results make me smile. So I give it my all. When I got home I was too tired to make the salmon and pineapple chutney. So, I had tilapia. I did make the greens and they were delicious!!! I am going to be making more kale in the future!!! Real near future!
The kale was sauteed with red pepper flake, garlic, olive oil and golden raisins. I also had 1/4 cup of cooked farro, thanks to Amy (fitchick75) whose picture of her dinner reminded me that I could have a grain serving! Thanks girl!
Oh, and we don't usually have the night time snack that is listed because food late in the evening makes it difficult to sleep. We usually have a casien protein shake. HOWEVER, Friday night snack was an apple with almond butter!!! mmmmmmmmm! I did not have almond butter, so I used sunflower seed butter (which I adore!).
I licked the spoon . . . heck, I licked the plate!
Amy gave the salmon such a good review that I was excited to see that leftovers from Friday night dinner were for lunch on Saturday! I definitely made the time to cook that up and will tell you all about it in a later blog!
Time to get rolling!
Live beautifully! Lift something heavy! Light a spark in your life today!
