I started my day (post gym) with a protein shake made with my MILK and I must say, it was quite delicious. It tasted alot like chocolate milk. Yum.
Since i'm home all day and had gone to the supermarket yesterday I was feeling somewhat motivated...and hungry.
For lunch I threw together a salad consisting of mixed greens and carrots, then added some sliced strawberries, a few raisins and a bit of shredded low fat mozarella cheese. I figured since I had the protein shake that I didn't need to make myself crazy about adding a protein. I used a newly purchased low fat balsamic vinaigrette from Kraft. Quite tasty!
I like to have a snack before I head to my evening Spin class, but I've found that my stomach is very picky and if I eat the wrong thing I pay the price on the drive down and during class.
Today I decided to make a smoothie. My parents bought me an immersion blender which to date had only been used for soup. Part of the hassle of making a smoothie was having to clean out the blender. Woo hoo for the immerision blender. I had frozen mixed berries from TJ's and then added milk. Wow, two times in one day. I've probably drank more milk today than I have in years and years.
So there's a shot of my smoothie. Notice the Yankees cup. Go Yanks! It was good. Not great, but good. It wasn't overly sweet and the seeds from the berries drove me crazy. But, it's a good start and now I can make changes and improve my "recipe". Any recommendations?
I used to make a peanut butter banana smoothie using sugar free frozen yogurt. Delicious, but not terribly healthy. But maybe a version of that can be my "treat" smoothie.
On that note, time to finish up the smoothie, change, and head out to teach. Happy hump day!
(as a side note, this is not all that I ate all day, in case you were concerned, these are just the highlights)
