heading out of town

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…

  2. your smoothies always look really good!

    I hope CPR went well!
    Enjoy your mini-vacay!!

  3. Woah! Happy Friday for you! & I think you just got me to keep Amy’s burritos in my mind for the future. For now, I like keeping the pre-packaged meals out of the kitchen. But I KNOW I will have days where we run out of time + have nothing to eat, and having a back up plan (in the freezer, that is) sounds great! Awesome ingredients list + gracias for the mini-review 🙂

    Have a super awesome 4 day weekend, you lucky girl!
