Sweat It Out:
Elliptical 60 Minutes
So I totally slacked on taking pictures of my Tuesday food so I’m a little late on the What I Ate Wednesday. But yesterday I captured all of my eats and here they are for your enjoyment. Once again thanks to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for hosting this every week!
Protein Shake. In the mix was:
- Almond Milk
- Pea Protein
- Frozen Strawberries
- Half a Frozen Banana
- HUGE handful of spinach
Oddly enough, I wasn’t really hungry ALL morning. Weird? But I knew I needed to eat something and so I had some baby carrots and Red Pepper Hummus. I love Banzo’s Hummus. It’s not quite as thick as Sabra, I like mine a little runny.
Lunch, if you can call it that:
Peanut Butter on a Thomas’s English Muffin. I was hungry by about 1:30, but I was also feeling lazy so this tided me over until late afternoon when I had another protein shake for an afternoon snack. Those Protein shakes were filling because I wasn’t hungry all the way until 7 when we had dinner.
I kept telling myself that I wouldn’t try eating cheese substitutes while doing my Vegan Challenge, but this recipe for Butternut Mac & Cheeze (notice the “Z” in Cheeze) looked to good, I had to try it. I found the recipe at Oh She Glows. It was good! I topped it off with some Franks Red Hot Sauce, and roasted some green beans on the side. The Butternut Squash made the cheeze sauce a little sweet, which I wasn’t super jazzed about, but once I added the hot sauce it really kicked it up. I would probably try using a different kind of pasta too, because the penne was a little thick for my liking. I would tweak this recipe a little bit the next time I make it by adding 1 less garlic clove (calls for 3) and less salt. I was pretty amazed that you could make an awesome sauce with raw cashews, almond milk and a few seasonings. Next week I will be trying out her original Mac & Cheeze recipe, which uses potato’s and carrots instead of Butternut Squash. One Last thing: This recipe makes a TON. I made an entire box of pasta and still had more cheeze sauce left over.
Now I am off to do a little shopping for some birthday’s and showers that are coming up next week! Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
Have you eaten anything memorable lately?
