real quick

Wow!  I am sore from the GRAVITY class last night!!  Just a quick post to tell you my boring eats for the morning and afternoon. 🙂  I have been pumping up my lunches with lots of leftovers, which has been great.  I was getting sick of eating the same old salad everyday.  Change is good!

I had a great run at the gym this morning, but was very hungry when I got home.  After cleaning up a bit and prepping for girls’ night tonight, I made myself a big glass of juice.

Juice Mix

  • 4 celery stalks
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • hunk of ginger

My juice was spicy today!  Lesson learned – don’t add too much ginger.

I also have a Cinnamon Raisin Vitatop with Nuttzo.

This kind was pretty good.  I do like the Vitatops that I have been trying out, and the ingredients that they use are great, but I don’t love them.  My favorites are the Apple Bran and Banana Nut.  The Cinnamon Raisin was good with big raisins throughout, but it was better spread with Nuttzo!

I snacked on a banana mid-morning, and then was more that ready for lunch when it came around.

Lunch consisted of another salad that I threw together this morning with a lot of leftovers hanging out in the fridge.  It consisted of romaine, chickpeas, carrot falafel, cucumber, somersaults and tangy tahini dressing.  It is such a big help to wash, dry and store your lettuce when you buy it.  It makes it easy to make a quick and healthy lunch.  You could even store the lettuce in individual bowls to grab and go in the morning!

Along with a side of parsnip fries, which were still great from last night.

They were especially delicious dipped in the extra tangy tahini dressing!

Almost time to hit the road and get cookin’ for a little girls night dinner tonight.  I recently picked up Veganomicon and found a delicious recipe to make from there.  I hope they like it. 🙂
