So a highlight of today's food was: Spinach Balsamic Strawberry Salad. Jiminy Christmas.
That said, I also ate a LOT of other food. It wasn't an overeating day, though I do have those, it was just a planned increase in intake. That's because I had a 9 mile run this morning to train for my race coming up, and I like to add in at least a few extra calories on those days to support the training. In fact, that salad was just a light afternoon snack.
Food 1: Post-workout pre-breakfast SIAWG.
What's a SIAWG? You may or may not be familiar with the acronym SIAB - smoothie in a bowl.
Well this is a Smoothie in a Wine Glass.
Maple Nut Smoothie
In the mix:
1 tbsp almonds
1/8 cup peanut flour
1 oz. maple syrup
Big handfuls spinach
1/2 cup almond milk
60 g soy yogurt
And topped with a tablespoon of walnuts. It has 8.5 g fiber and 20 g protein, and tastes like my favorite waffle toppings: maple and peanut butter.
Food 2: Breakfast, leftover Pumpkin Crepes with Maple Banana Butter.
Food 3: Leftover Orange "Chicken" Quinoa Medley. This was the last of it, in case you're sick of this picture:
Food 4: I tried to eat some wasabi peas. I haven't tried them since I was a little kid. Yuck. Still awful. Anyone want some? I have a whole bag.
Food 5: Baby apple.
Food 6: The above Strawberry Balsamic Salad.
Food 7: I unfroze the last batch of this Thai Red Curry and had it with Trader Joe's Thai Lime Pilaf rice.
Food 8: Coming up still, some vegan hot chocolate.
Besides the run, it was just a study day. This week is going to be pretty crazy. It really never ends does it?
I'm watching the Academy Awards now, and otherwise this evening I do have some more study ambitions.
Happy Sunday friends. Let's dominate this week.
