a day late

Good morning!  Yesterday was crazy, so I didn’t get a chance to post!

My day started with a smoothie.  I was running out the door, and needed something quick.  This wasn’t my best smoothie, but it did keep me full and satisfied for hours!  I think I put a little more peanut butter than was needed…and the cottage cheese added lots of extra protein for me.

In the mix:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup 2% Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 packet Vega Vanilla Chai protein mix
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder

Wow, there was a lot in that smoothie – lots of calories and lots of goodness.

But, it tasted way to peanut buttery, even for my taste!  I think that 1 tbsp would have been plenty, but I was rushing around this morning and not thinking clearly.

Lunch was a delicious salad.

Spinach with grilled eggplant, 1/2 orange pepper, feta cheese and hummus.

The eggplant was a great addition!

It was delicious!  I also snacked on an apple and some chocolate pretzels for ‘dessert’.

Brant had the day off for Patriot’s Day, so dinner was ready for me when I got home!  He made a few additions to one of our favorite meals – Lentil Almond Stirfry from 101cookbooks.com.

He substituted the following:

  • Green Lentils for Brown/Black Lentils
  • Sweet Potatoes for Small New Potatoes
  • Broccoli for Brussels Sprouts

And, it was still just as delicious!  I really think that the mint sauce makes this dish :).  And the combination of lentils with potatoes and veggies.  It is a delicious and very easy meal.  Brant did cook the lentils this time (as opposed to using the pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joes) which makes the process longer, but it is well worth it!

It looks like a gorgeous day!
