Hey there, today is What I Ate Wednesday! These posts are fun to do, it forces me to jot down what I’m eating, and maybe to make better decisions 🙂 you should try journaling your food intake for a few days, you may learn something or recognize areas that can be improved!
Of course I had my usual large glass of warm water with the fresh juice from half a lemon. I bought a new milk blend from Whole Foods of almond milk, cashew milk and hazelnut milk to try in my coffee — it was pretty good! Also I added a couple teaspoons of coconut sugar. And then the yummiest green tropical smoothie ever!! You have to try it! It consisted of a ton of spinach, 2-3 cups fresh pineapple, 2 bananas, 3 tbsp. hemp hearts, 2 tbsp. coconut oil, Almond Breeze Almond Coconut Milk (SO friggin’ delicious) and ice. YUM. The perfect smoothie for anyone new to green smoothies/juices.
I was hungry an hour or two after the green smoothie, so I had an orange with a Pure Organic Cherry Cashew Bar.
I love having huge salads for lunch, you can pack in a bunch of veggies and it’s filling, if you add in the right foods. This salad was spring mix lettuce & spinach, with quinoa (under all the veggies), celery, purple cabbage, red pepper, red onion, hemp hearts and sunflower seeds. And a simple homemade vinaigrette dressing, I need to post a salad/dressing recipe soon.
I had a handful of pistachios as a little snack later on! Dinner was two falafels (yummy recipe coming soon), hummus, pita crackers and a greek veggie salad with cucumber, tomato, red pepper and black olives. And a glass of red wine.
I am warning you, what I ate next is highly addicting and I kinda wish I didn’t buy them! Definitely not the healthiest dessert but sometimes, you gotta live a little. I had to stop myself from eating all of them. They are a cookie/graham cracker mix with a brown sugary topping from Trader Joe’s. With a little almond milk on the side. OMG. Seriously, don’t buy them.
Have you heard of the Tone It Up girls?! I have been meaning to share their workout videos for a while. They had a show on Bravo a few months back. ANOTHER reason I am a Cali girl wannabe 😉 ugh I have to move to Cali already! They are so fun and I love their Bikini Series workouts. They are already in week 4 of their Bikini Series challenge, but it’s never too late to start. I do 2-3 videos for an awesome workout 🙂 and most of their videos are on the beach! I am loving their “Bikini Body Routine 2” video at the moment. Let me know if you try their workouts, or if you already are loving them!!
I love your what I eat in the day and I live your videos! I’m not vegan, YET but I’ll get there. Please don’t judge me. I’m motivated to start a plant-based diet. And yes I also love tone it up girls. They have amazing workouts!
Love you and thank you for sharing your ideas and recipes!
I really liked how you combined the salad,crackers, falafels and hummus!I would have never have thought to add crackers to it.Looks amazing!!
