Since this “What I Ate” series was such a hit last week, I think it’s here to stay. (Assuming that I actually remember to take pictures before eating.)
Here’s a peek at Monday’s meals.
Morning green tea, sitting among a jungle of cords at my desk.
Fresh fruit works in a pinch!
Spinach & Banana green smoothie. Into my VitaMix, went a frozen banana, half a bag of fresh spinach, a heaping spoonful of coconut oil, water, cinnamon, vanilla and a large handful of ice–> which makes it nice and slushy-like. It also makes TWO 16-oz. glasses worth!
I “rounded out” the meal with a few vegan banana bread cookies.
Which, as a couple of you commented yesterday, are really more like muffin tops! Delicious, filling (thanks to the flax seed and almond butter), and totally guilt-free. 🙂
I met up with a couple of girlfriends for dinner at The Cheesecake Factory last night. I was pleased to see that they offered a new “Skinnylicious” menu— with all the offerings under 600 calories– but after looking it over, I stuck to my usual.
I ordered their tossed green salad, and brought my own fixin’s–> a container of roasted red peppers and a big chunk of soft goat cheese, along with my favorite dressing. I’m pretty discreet when I throw on my toppings, but I find that it never bothers anyone when I fix-up my restaurant meals.
I’m also convinced that I’m never going to get sick of this flavor combo. It’s seriously the best-tasting salad in the world!
A glass of wine was also enjoyed with dinner, though I’m a serious light-weight and could only finish about half. My friends were happy to help me polish it off. 😀
This shouldn’t be a surprise. I forgot to take a picture of my dark chocolate bar until it was almost finished, but I always eat the full bar. Hence, why I’m trying to buy the smaller bars from Trader Joe’s. (Pretty sure I don’t need a full 3 oz. bar every night, even if my taste buds say I do.)
