What a wonderful weekend away! We spent the weekend chatting with friends, BBQ-ing, hiking, relaxing and soaking in the sun. It was fabulous!
For a weekend away, I was able to keep my healthy eating style with everything that I brought from home plus a lot of fruit and veggies that we all picked up. I ate smoothies, salads, veggie burgers, grilled veggies, corn on the cob, more salad, super charge me cookies, etc. I feel great after a weekend away!
But, back to reality today!
It was a HOT one in Boston today…they say it hit 100°F in some areas. Yowzers! To cool off a bit, I started my day with a smoothie, of course.
Chocolate Mango Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1 tbsp raw cacao
- 3/4 scoop Vega protein powder
- 1 tsp maca
- 1 tsp spirulina
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup filtered water
Absolutely delicious and very refreshing!!
I kept lunch fairly simple as well, mostly due to the lack of fresh produce in our fridge after a weekend away (we picked up our CSA tonight!).
Whole Wheat Wrap with Lettuce, Hummus and Avocado
And, yogurt with fresh blueberries.
Aren’t simple foods the best?!
Mid-afternoon, I snacked on a granola bar that I had picked up at Starbucks last week.
I loved it! Simple ingredients and raw…
We tried to keep dinner very simple due to the heat.
Cabbage and Apple Coleslaw
This is a very easy recipe. I used the grater on my food processor to chop everything up, which made it simple!
- 1 head of green cabbage
- 1 cup grated carrots
- 2 small apples, chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins, chopped
- 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 8 oz thick greek yogurt (I used Trader Joe’s Honey Greek Yogurt – full fat)
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh thyme
Mix the yogurt, vinegar, oil and thyme until thinned out (use a little extra olive oil if need be), then toss the dressing with the cabbage, carrots, apple, raisins and sunflower seeds.
I spiralized a beet to serve on top of my salad.
Served with cheesy bread. 🙂
Simple, cold dinners on hot nights are definitely the way to go! This was delicious! We both loved it.
Have a great (cool) evening.
