Lately, I’ve been slacking a little in the greens department. I always throw spinach in my post workout smoothie, but after that, sometimes I don’t have any for the remainder of the day! So, I’ve decided that I am going to buy at least 2 other greens every week at the grocery store.
And, I’m going to join in the What I Ate Wednesday April Challenge!
Let’s start with Monday night’s eats. After a long weekend of rather unhealthy choices, I opted for an easy dinner. For Christmas, our friend bought us a slew of steaks and seafood from Omaha Steaks. It ships frozen and we’ve had it all in there since December! I decided on the scallop and crabmeat stuffed sole. It was simple to make: add water and bake!
I made a side of blanched asparagus with roasted tomatoes and shaved parmesan. I also sprinkled it with truffle salt and pepper.
My Easter cravings were not being tamed because leftover sweets were hanging around.
Joe and I split the two cupcakes for dessert. Unfortunately, that green frosting doesn’t count for greens.
Tuesday morning started off with a long run. It felt awesome aside from the fact that I thought I was going to puke at minute 57. I toughed it out and then bolted home for breakfast.
I was a sweaty disgusting mess, clearly. I immediately made a banana, blackberry, and spinach protein smoothie when I got home. I slurped it down faster than ever! Not only because I was starving, but I was running late, as usual.
Unfortunately, I had a 12 hour work day, so no other food photos were snapped!
This morning, I woke up a little late, being that yesterday was a long day. I did an upper body workout similar to Saturday’s “first and last”, only I changed up the exercises a bit. I dreamed about Ashley’s protein quick bake the entire time I was at the gym, so obviously, it happened when I got home.
I really need better light in my house because I refuse to stand by the back door every time I need light for my photos. Ugh.
And it still looks like crap – but it’s actually blackberries muddled with agave nectar and a scoop of crunchy almond butter.
Anyway, I had a bunch of book keeping to do for the restaurant, so I got started on that right away while listening to the Tennis station on Pandora.
I took a lunch break after about 2 hours.
I made an avocado, jalapeno hummus, and baby spinach wrap (whole wheat).
I liked the spiciness of the jalapeno hummus combined with the creamy avocado. The spinach added a nice crunch. Easy, delicious, and nutritious. Can’t beat that. Lots of green going on here!
I was going to wait to post after tonight’s dinner, but I have a feeling it’s going to deserve it’s own post tomorrow. Look out for a healthy version of a savory dish! Off to make that, right now!
