Hey guys, happy Halloween!

I’m running a bit behind (I squeezed in a 12-miler before work this morning) so let’s get right to the food, I’ll be showing you my meals from yesterday!
Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

As always thanks to Jenn for hosting!

{5:15 am} Pre-run Snack

Classic date stuffed with sunbutter that successfully fueled me through my 7 mile recovery run on the dreadmill.

{7:00 am} Breakfast

For breakfast I had oats in a jar. I cooked 1/2 cup oats, 1 1/2 cups water, and 1 tsp chia seeds on the stove until it started to boil. Then I added in 1/2 mashed banana and 2 T PB2. The oats came out tasting nice and peanut buttery and tasted great in the dark chocolate dreams jar!

When I got to work at 9, I drank some coffee with almond milk and stevia.

{12:00 pm} Lunch

I had some leftover soup from last week (it’s still good so I’m still eating it!) with half an avocado sliced on top. The two didn’t really go together but the avocado definitely cooled off the soup a bit. Plus, I’m under the impression the avocado (and hot sauce) make everything better :) .

I finished off lunch with two mandarin oranges.

{3:30 pm} Snack

My stomach started to grumble around 2 but I put off eating anything because I thought I was dehydrated. Half of a bottle of water later + a Vitamin Water later it was still grumbling so I had a mini Larabar that I got at the Chicago Marathon expo.

{7:00 pm} Dinner

I’ve been loving these huge fall-inspired salads. The one above is actually from Monday night and is loaded with a baby spinach/baby kale mix, sliced mushrooms, mandarin oranges, roasted brussels sprouts, walnuts, and dried cranberries.

The one I had last night had a base of steamed kale and was topped with mushrooms, roasted brussels sprouts, roasted butternut squash, dried cranberries, walnuts, and TJs light champagne vinaigrette dressing.

Both of these salads were delish and I actually struggled to finish mine last night.

{7:45 pm} Dessert

I mixed pumpkin, Life’s Essential Protein powder, and pumpkin pie spice together and crumbed in a piece of dark chocolate with ginger. I served it with an almond butter spoon.

What are your favorite salad toppings? Mine change pretty regularly but right now I’m loving roasted veggies — particularly brussels sprouts.

Have a great day!
