This morning was a slow one. After being out late with a few friends for labor day, I woke up and grabbed for the coffee. As soon as I sat down at the computer to start going over some work emails, the phone calls and emails just never seemed to stop. Before I knew it, it was 9:30 and I hadn’t had breakfast or gotten ready to walk out the door. So breakfast was a quick and easy smoothie that Maggie had whipped up. Yummo.
8 Medium Ice Cubes
1 1/2 Cups Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sugar
1. Puree the mango and peach. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend. Top with granola.
BOOM! Delicious Mango, Peach Smoothie! Perfect way to start off the work day…well mid morning snack I guess.
When lunch finally rolled around, I was craving eggs. I was so surprised at how well it came out. I felt like it could have gone either way, but man did it satisfy! I wanted a second one after this was polished off!
On this sandwich there is:
1 Over Easy Egg
2 Table Spoons Sun Dried Tomato Hummus
1/4 Cup Sprouts
2 Tablespoons Fresh Chives
1 Honey Wheat English Muffin
Surprisingly, overwhelmingly good. I topped my meal off with 2 Whatever You Got Oatmeal Cookies from last night and went back to work.
Tonight I wen to the gym for a quick workout on the treadmill. I am not so much into long distances on the treadmill because I find them really boring and if I attempt to, chances are I’ll just quit half way through. So, tonight I did a 25 Minute Interval Workout.
This morning I woke up with a bit of a cold that was still lingering from the weekend. Even when I feel like I am starting to get sick, I go straight to brew myself some tea. This weekend I had gone to Teavana and grabbed some fresh tea leaves so that’s what ended up in my cup. I love that place because as soon as you walk in you feel like the options for tea are endless. The only thing that bothers me about the place is that you can’t take them all home!
After my tea I stumbled around the kitchen to find some waffles that had been in the freezer for a while. Just waiting to be comfort food for just this occasion. I am a big fan of the Van’s natural foods Waffles. They load these waffles with flaxseeds and natural wheats and they are friendly to just about every dietary restriction. No eggs, No Dairy, No Gluten….and yummy.
For the syrup I used Agave Nectar, just trying to stay on the healthy side again 🙂
When lunch came around, it was another veggie sandwich for me. I love them even though I feel like they sound so bland. Hummus is my go to as far as condiments go. You can get just about every flavor of them and they add so much to your sandwich. I just picked up this Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus the other day and have been slapping it on everything. They other one I picked up was a Spicey Red Pepper Hummus, and that has a hell of a kick.
For the sandwich…
4 Slices of Cucumber
1 Slice of Whole Wheat Bread
1/4 Cup Sprouts
2 Tablespoons Sun Dried Tomato Hummus
Tonight I headed to the gym to do an Elliptical Workout and my Shoulder Toning Circuit. I am going to try to start adding a link to some great little workouts that I do to stay in shape 🙂
