It’s been quite busy so far this week and it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. I know, I know..you gotta make time..
Apart from working out, I’ve been quite organised when it comes to food..from juicing my heart out to lunches/dinners I brought to work to healthy desserts. If preparation is the key to success, I’m winning! 😊
Here’s a look at a selection of food and beverages I’ve been eating..
It’s safe to say that, when it comes to breakfast, I haven’t been very adventurous lately..just your
ordinary amazing porridge with different added extras..always made with unsweetened Almond Breeze and cinnamon, then topped with, mmh, well, let’s see..- banana, chia/sunflower/sesame/pumpkin seeds, PB or AB, but always sprinkled with more cinnamon! 😋
On other mornings, or pre-workout, I typically make a green juice. This usually consists of carrots, apples, pears, spinach, kale, ginger and lemon/lime..if I feel like it (or haven’t run out of it) I add beetroot and cucumber. Yummy!
As for tea or coffee- one or the other is always essential.. be it black tea with almond milk, green tea, chai or vanilla roiboos tea, an almond milk latte or a “blended” iced latte (coffee+almond milk+vanilla extract+ice cubes=wizzed together in a blender).
Err..speaking of predicable – chicken, chicken and more chicken.. oops! I actually had a vegetarian salad with falafel at work on Sunday, which went undocumented, but I can assure you it looked and tasted delicious.
Aaaanyway, so apart from the chicken, red cabbage and kale has featured quite heavily on the menu these past few days – because both just rock my taste buds! The Boyfriend is quite the fan too..win-win!
Mmmhh – desserts! Dried pineapple..can I even count the ways..!?! It’s just so..so..so delicious and nutritious aaaand addictive ..read:dangerous! I kinda feel the need to state that I only eat the unsweetened kind, cos otherwise what’s the point! Plus, I tried the sweetened one only once and didn’t like it.
Then there were a couple of new discoveries .. alcohol-free vanilla extract! Amazeballs! Perfect for adding to yogurt/cottage cheese, coffee..anything that isn’t baked really. Like Greek yogurt..nom! 😊
The second new find -the Green Glow smoothie (desserts), which is based on Tone It Up’s recipe, only I added almond milk instead of coconut water. So, yes- that’s a super delicious dessert that’s good for you. Dreams do come true! Hehee!
And with that, I’m off to dream about the “Green Glow” dessert..gotta buy some avocados tomorrow.. 😋
