Mondays can be tough but I actually enjoyed getting back into the swing of things. I had a busy morning with teaching Bliss Boot Camp, and then two personal training clients but of course had time to eat and actually ate 3 of my favorite meals today.
The only thing missing today was a bowl of oats! I opted to have an Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam Ezekiel English Muffin.
I absolutely love Ezekiel English Muffins and the few days that I had to go without has only made my craving for them stronger.
Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam Ezekiel English Muffin
1 Food For Life 7-Sprouted Grain English Muffin
1 tbsp MaraNatha Raw & Creamy Almond Butter
1 /2 tbsp Oregon Red Raspberry Jam
Handful of Fresh Red Raspberry
Great way to start the day!
Lunch was a Black Bean and Egg Taco. This is another one of my favorites. So satisfying and delicious.
Black Bean and Egg Taco
1 La Tortilla Factory Hand Made Style Corn Tortilla
1 egg, fried
1/4 cup fat-free refried black beans
Sprinkling of Mexican Cheese
2 tbsp of Guaca Salsa
This is such a quick lunch and would also make a great breakfast. I am usually not up for eggs first thing in the morning but this is great energy food. The egg provides a nice source of protein, the black beans are loaded with fiber and protein, the cheese has calcium and avocado provides you with a good fat. Yum.
This afternoon the kids had activities-- Destination Imagination for Emmet and Theatre Dance for Zoe. So by the time I got home I was famished and needed a quick dinner before training evening clients. My default dinner is always a veggie burger and I also had leftover salad from last night so I was able whip up a healthy dinner in minutes.
Feta Hummus Veggie Burger
1 Boca Burger Original Vegan Burger (only 70 calories)
1 Oroweat Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins
1 tbsp Sabra Hummus
1 tbsp of Feta Cheese
Kitchen Sink Salad
Dressed with 1 tbsp of dijon mustard, 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar, 1 tsp olive oil
About right now I am thinking of indulging in a little dessert...... we have Vanilla Bean Pudding and Macaroons in the house so I am thinking I might have a small serving of both. The scale was slightly down this morning but still need to work on it a bit more to get back to my "happy" weight.
I am looking forward to a nice run in the morning and a noon yoga class tomorrow. So I will be catching up on my exercise as well.
So I have to tell you that I am off to watch a bit of the new Bachelor. It is such a cheesy show but I enjoy making my husband watch a little of it with me just for his snide comments.
I wish you could seen my hubby's face when they started piping in "On The Wings of Love" while Jake and his date where in the plane. Oh my.... I have been laughing so hard!
I hope everyone has a great evening and survived their Monday.
