Good morning, loves! I am happy to share another What I Ate Wednesday post today. Let me know if you enjoy these types of posts or if I should share something different. I would love to hear the opinions from my lovely readers! I was thinking of doing a “How I Motivate Myself to Workout” type of post with a list. Let me know what you think in the comments!
After my 22 oz. of water with fresh lemon juice (from 1/2 of a large lemon) I had a cup of coffee with almond coconut milk and coconut sugar. Yesterday was hotttt so I made a huge mason jar full of mango banana “nice cream” and it was heavenly. I love nice cream because it gives me a ton of energy and fills me up for a while. Frozen bananas are the best thing ever created.
Want to make this nice cream? I think you should. Get 3 frozen, ripe, sliced bananas and place in high-speed blender or food processor with about 1/2 cup (or more if needed) of almond milk. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour half of that mixture into your mason jar or cup. Add 1 fresh mango to the blender along with 1 more frozen, sliced banana and a little more almond milk. Blend until smooth and layer on top! Add some granola or whatever you please. I go through a lot of bananas.. I am thinking about just buying a big box and freezing all of them once they are ripe so I don’t have to keep running to the store! #veganproblems
That nice cream gave me so much energy I had to workout! I did Fitness Blender’s Leg Slimming Pilates workout – twice through. And then did their No-Equipment Upper Body video. I am feeling it today.. ha. After that, I noticed these peaches were about to go bad if I waited until the next day to eat them, so I sliced up 2 of them and snacked on those!
For lunch I made a veggie pasta salad with ditalini pasta, black beans, green pepper, red pepper, corn, celery and hemp hearts along with a homemade cumin dressing. Yum! I also finished up some leftover kale salad.
For dinner I made a little side salad to go with these roasted potatoes and brussels sprouts. Side salad was spinach, 1 tomato, and hemp hearts, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Marty was eating tempeh so I may have had a few bites of that 😉
That’s it! I am going to make some nice cream now, I love it too much. Happy Wednesday ? and let me know what you think! Do you like these kinds of posts? Should I share something different? What are your favorite/typical meals in a day?
