We are half way through the work week and it feels great! My Mama is coming to visit my sister Sarah and I this friday and saturday and I am pumped!! My mom and I are really REALLY close and I love her to death. I dont know about you, but I live for countdowns even for little things, so without further ado…3 more days till my Mama comes!!
Back to the topic of the day, WIAW! I follow peas and crayons and my sister also participates in this so I thought, hey, what the heck! Here goes,
To begin the lovely day (which was tuesday) I ate one of top 5 quick fix breakfast! All that you needs is…
Nutty breakfast rollup
- Whole wheat tortilla
- An apple
- A Banana
- ANY nut butter of choice (as many as you want)
- Flax seed
- Chia seed
- Anything else you feel would taste delicious!! 🙂
Put it together and you get this delicious, nutrient dense breakfast that will hold you over for at least 4 hours!!
I also followed that up with Soy milk/Almond milk over ice with a little coffee. I don’t really enjoy the taste of just plain coffee so I have milk with coffee in the morning over ice. I don’t drink it every day, just when I feel like spicing up my morning!
After breakfast I headed off to the garden for a day in the sun. I can’t imagine my life without this sunscreen! I dont know about you guys, but I burn like a baby so this little guy comes with me every where!
Moving on.. so after the garden I munched on a lovely little plum from Aldi. If you have Aldi around your house, I would suggest it. It has great deals and great prices! For example, a pack of ground turkey for 2.50! Yup, 2.50!!!
When I got home from work, I ate a refreshing lunch which included…
1/4 c. farro
1/2 c. plain yogurt
1 tbsp. honey
handful of fresh blueberries
A little handful of granola on top
How does it look to you?
Pretty tasty! It reminds me of a rice pudding-ish texture!
After this little lunch of mine settled down, I headed to my home away from home! You guessed it, the gym!!
Great workout today! After my cardio session I headed into the back to do my Body Pump class via You Tube! If you have access to a gym that offers the Les Mills Body Pump class, I would highly suggest it!
I dont know about you guys, but when I return from the gym I am famished and I heard the dinner bell ring! (my stomach grumble)
Left overs it was, but a little bit different than last night! Everybody meet the “turkey burger salad”….
Leftover turkey sliders
Slice of whole wheat honey oat bread
*This is a great way to watch carbs if you chose! (I still ate some)
Few, that was painless. I did enjoy what I ate today and hope that maybe you can try some of my concoctions too!
What is your favorite quick fix breakfast?
