Guess what today is?! It’s Friday for me!
We are heading out of town this weekend for a mini vacation and I am so looking forward to 4 days of relaxing! (For those of you who know me, you know that I have trouble with that.)
I started the day with a smoothie to go.
In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana (organic)
- 1 cup frozen mango (organic)
- 3 frozen strawberries (organic)
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- 2 tbsp hemp protein powder
- 1 tsp maca
- 1 tsp spirulina (which gives it the pretty color!)
- 1.5 tbsp raw cashew butter
- 1.25 cups coconut water
It was really good today! I have been super thirsty for the past few days even though I have been chugging water, so this definitely helped.
For lunch, I had something a bit different for me today – Almond Butter & Jelly Sandwich on whole wheat multigrain, 2 carrots and a grapefuit.
I ended up not eating the grapefruit because I didn’t have time to peel it…but, the sandwich was really good!
I skipped an afternoon snack because I needed to eat an early dinner! I packed my dinner to-go tonight because I am taking a CPR class.
Amy’s Burrito, yogurt and granola.
This was my first time having an Amy’s Burrito. I try to stay away from stuff like this, but I needed something quick and fairly healthy. Amy’s uses minimal ingredients in their pre-packaged meals.
Amy’s Non-Dairy Burrito: Organic flour tortilla wrapped around organic pinto beans, rice and vegetables in a mild Mexican sauce.
INGREDIENTS : (VEGAN) ORGANIC PINTO BEANS, ORGANIC WHOLE WHEAT AND WHEAT FLOUR, FILTERED WATER, ORGANIC BROWN RICE, ORGANIC TOMATO PUREE, EXPELLER PRESSED HIGH OLEIC SAFFLOWER AND/OR SUNFLOWER OIL, ORGANIC ONIONS, ORGANIC BELL PEPPERS, ORGANIC SWEET RICE FLOUR, SEA SALT, SPICES, ORGANIC WHEAT GLUTEN, ORGANIC GARLIC.
Not so bad for a frozen burrito. I’m not going to lie – I loved this!! The tortilla was not soggy at all (I was fearing it would be) and the flavors were delicious. I love beans! I would totally buy these again for quick lunches and/or dinners when I am in a rush.
Along with my burrito, I also had a greek yogurt and granola.
Above are 2 new flavors of Galaxy Granola that I was sent to sample! I was psyched to receive these. I liked the other flavors of Galaxy Granola, but these 2 sounded so much better to me – Maple Pecan Quinoa and Hint of Honey?! YUM!
Tonight, I tried the Maple Pecan Quinoa Granola. I love quinoa, I love pecans and I love maple syrup! I couldn’t go wrong. The granola was great. Similar texture to their other flavors, and the maple really came through. I liked the additional crunch from the quinoa. These 2 flavors hit stores this month, so be sure to check them out!
I also brought an apple, some dried fruit and a few pieces of dark chocolate to snack on during the class if I feel the need.
Off to CPR…
