With Kasey and I’s #plantPOWER challenge coming up on MONDAY, we thought we’d provide you with everything you need to go grocery shopping this weekend! We’ve created a stellar list and broke it down according to macronurients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats). It is full of amazing foods that make you feel good from the inside out!
We can get everything we need from plant-based foods and October’s #plantPOWER challenge is the perfect month to usher in those plants! Remember that this isn’t about losing weight – this is about treating your body with TLC and feeling energized from the inside out. That’s what matters most!
Right. That’s me channeling my inner Uncle Sam/I Want You face, aka the “Kasey-and-I-Really-Want-You-To-Join-Us” face. Sexy, huh?
Kasey and I developed the following grocery list together and we know you’re going to LOVE it! Thanks to Kasey for making these charts and picking up some slack this week, which has been very hectic and busy. I love you, girl!
If you have ANY questions or want to submit a recipe for us to share with everyone during the challenge, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kasey (email@example.com) for more information. Along the way, we have some amazing foodie giveaways for all of you! All you have to do to be entered is participate in the challenge every day and make sure that, starting Monday, you’re tagging @theloveofkale and @Powercakes with the #plantPOWER hashtag and the #FitFluential hashtag. Let’s bring the plant thunder!
In the spirit of #plantPOWER, I thought that I’d show you how I’ve been reppin’ the plant-based love so far today!
At my desk today, I enjoyed some unpictured dried figs, chocolate protein pudding oats with hemp seeds, and a black, medium coffee with one shot of espresso. I’ve finally found the one and only thing I’ll ever like from Dunkin’ Donuts. Eureka! Espresso is the key to making their otherwise bland coffee stronger and tasty, in my humble opinion.
Mid morning, I broke into my nuts. My favorite is a the mixed bag of raw nuts from Trader Joe’s, which includes almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, walnuts, and peanuts. Brain power at its finest!
Lunch was warm and cozy – just what I was craving on this dreary and rainy day! I made a scramble with organic sprouted tofu from Trader Joe’s, kale, red pepper, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, curry powder, and Trader Joe’s eggplant-garlic spread. I served it up with a roasted sweet potato, sliced into wedges, and a dollop of organic ketchup. Delish!
Alright, folks, it’s back to work for this girl. Make sure you check out Kasey’s awesome #plantPOWER grocery shop. She got some amazing loot that is making me kale-green with envy! I’ll be doing my grocery shop tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!
