A quick look at what I ate yesterday…
I can’t remember the last time I ate just one breakfast and I also can’t remember the last time I was able to sip my first cup of coffee at a leisurely pace rather than gulp it down in two seconds.
Early morning (as in still dark outside) pre-run small bowl of oatmeal with mashed banana, cinnamon and peanut butter. Can you see my mug is basically empty before I even took a bite of the oatmeal?
After my run (nine miles!), I came home wanting a simple english muffin with peanut butter rather than my usual oats in a jar.
It’s extremely rare for me to switch up my post-run meal but this Rudi’s Organic Spelt English Muffin topped with a mix of Crunch Time Peanut Butter, Trader Joe’s Crunchy Peanut Butter with Flax & Chia Seeds and some cranberry apple jelly hit the spot!
I needed a change of weekday pace for lunch too.
Red Mango is usually a weekend lunch treat but I just needed it yesterday, you hear me? I needed it.
I didn’t want to look at another salad or vegetable or anything savory of that sort. I wanted my parfait layered all nice with berries, pumpkin flax granola and dark chocolate chips.
It’s not like I miss out on my vegetable servings anyway because I always seem to get them in later in the day.
A peak inside a steam fresh bag of mixed vegetables…
I really like steam fresh bags of veggies. I heat them up sometimes while dinner is cooking and pick through the mix.
This mix is my favorite – snap peas, broccoli, water chestnuts and carrots. I could do without the carrots but I guess they make it more interesting and colorful.
Let’s just call this another plant-based power bowl for dinner.
Roasted brussels sprouts with other vegetables, chick peas, brown rice and avocado. Hummus too!
Dessert was a winner. A real winner.
I ended up with a jar of PB2 in my pantry after telling you I stopped buying it because it was on sale so I figured, like, okay why not?!
The one thing I do love about PB2 is how well it combines with bananas, fresh or frozen.
For this dessert, I mashed a fresh banana, added PB2 with water (don’t ask me how much because I don’t know) plus dark chocolate and a spoonful of crunchy peanut butter.
Warmed in the microwave for a minute and you have some sort of gooey snacking cake.
It’s so simple it’s silly. I can’t even call it a recipe.
Wait, I totally had an apple somewhere in the day too.
