How’s your week going?! Happy What I Ate Wednesday! We have lots of yumminess happening today, including these tasty little Sejoyia Coco-Roons 🙂
My morning hydration was a cup of water with liquid iodine – a new addition to my routine that I’m trying. Read more about that here! I won’t go without drinking tons of water first thing in the morning. It’s habit to me now, but I used to need friendly reminders to get my water in before diving into breakfast, which is why I share it here with you guys! After that I made iced passion fruit green tea from Pique Tea Crystals (pictured above). So refreshing and a nice little pick-me-up.
I start to crave more carbs in my luteal phase, and for good reason – our bodies need the extra energy! So I opted for avocado toast using the Angelic Bakehouse sprouted bread (which I love). Then I also made a protein smoothie to tide me over until lunch.
Creamy Cauliflower Protein Smoothie:
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon sunflower seed butter
- 1/2 scoop vanilla Vega Sport vanila protein
- 1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup filtered water
Lunch was the yummiest soup and salad! I picked up the Carrot Ginger soup from Trader Joe’s and heated it up in a cup, paired with Mary’s Gone crackers. My salad had spring mix, cucumber, chickpeas, cabbage, coconut and crushed almonds, along with my Spicy Magic Green Sauce for dressing – it can be used for anything!
Let’s talk a little about snacks. What does your work day snack look like? Mine usually consists of an apple with almond butter, but when I want something more exciting, I can’t get enough of the Sejoyia Coco-Roons! I picked them up at Walmart as they’re new to the gluten-free aisle. I will say, it’s hard to abstain from eating the whole bag! Coco-Roons are a healthier, clean-eating, non-GMO treat. Think superfood cookie meets lots of cashews and coconut, sweetened with pure, organic maple syrup (aka no refined sugar!). Coco-Roons satisfy my sweet tooth cravings in a guilt-free manner with healthier ingredients that are the yummiest!
These superfood cookies are organic, gluten-free, paleo-friendly, vegan, and kosher. My favorite flavors are Brownie and Lemon Pie! Lemon is light and refreshing, similar to airy lemon cake and brownie is made with organic cocoa and has a deep, rich, chocolate-y flavor! Take advantage of the $0.75 off ibotta offer when you purchase 1 Sejoyia Coco-Roons at Walmart, while supplies last! Also, get an additional $.50 for redeeming the rebate on 3 different shopping trips.
Pack them as a snack on-the-go.
Make them into a cookie sandwich with almond butter in the middle!
Or eat them plain when you have a cookie craving 🙂
I made a big batch of red lentil pasta with broccoli, zucchini, artichoke, tomatoes and green peas!
Plus my nightly cup of Calming Magnesium Beauty Sleep Tea before bed!
Hope you enjoyed this What I Ate Wednesday!
