I’m going to (hopefully) make this a quick one so I can watch one of my favorite shows tonight – Heroes!! Love it!
I got a fabulous night’s sleep last night which included a stretch of 6 consecutive hours! Woohoo! And, baby let me sleep until almost 7 today.
Once I was up, I was ready for one of my favorite breakfasts – Banana Bread Oatmeal with scrambled egg/egg whites.
I used 3/4 cup of oatmeal today and only 1 tbs of ground flaxseed. This breakfast kept me full for 5 hours!
I went out for a bit this morning to run a few errands. It was a gorgeous day! I regret that I didn’t spend more time outside.
For lunch, I made a wrap with deli chicken, light mayo, lettuce, and pickles. So tasty…
…but not so filling. I followed this up with a protein shake about an hour later. I used a new protein powder I picked up at the drug store this morning. (I love trying new things!) I bought MLO Vegetable Protein Powder. It’s unflavored, so I knew I’d need to add quite a bit of fruit. I blended it with 1 cup of unsweetened soymilk, 1/4 cup of OJ, and 3/4 cup of frozen mixed berries.
It was pretty chalky and gritty. It may be because I only used 1-1/4 cups of liquid and the canister recommends 2 cups. I definitely need to get Jay Robb back in my life!
Later in the afternoon, I wolfed down a small banana.
The highlight of my afternoon was the package I received from Foodbuzz. It contained 2 loaves of Nature’s Pride bread. There’s a loaf of 100% whole wheat and a loaf of 12-grain. I haven’t tried them yet, but I did look at the nutritional stats. They’re pretty caloric – 110 calories per slice. And they have 20 carbs in just one slice, with only 2 grams of fiber. Hmmm… I’m sure they’ll taste good, but I prefer my sprouted grain bread that’s higher in fiber and protein, and lower in calories.
I had yet another new product for dinner – Gardein Tuscan Breasts. I roasted some eggplant to have on the side.
This was just ok. It was definitely my least favorite Gardein product I’ve tried. I didn’t particularly care for the sauce. It was filling though!
Have you tried any “meat substitutes”? If so, what’s your favorite?
I loooove Gardein BBQ Pulled Shreds! Sooo good!! They’re quite hearty, too.
After I ate dinner and settled baby into her crib, I did Biggest Loser Power Sculpt. I actually listened to my iPod while I was doing it because I’ve done the video so many times, I think I could do it in my sleep!
After my workout, I snacked on an apple.
I didn’t actually finish this post before my show started! So I took a break and came back to finish it. Time for a shower, jammies, and bed! Night.
