Morning friends! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Hope you are having a great week. I feel like I have a combination of personal, professional and baby goals to accomplish each day, so I’m knocking away at those! It’s making the weeks go by so quickly.
Let’s get on to a day of full eats, shall we?
I’m in a cereal phase right now. I had some Crackin’ Oat Bran cereal with bluebs, banana, peanut butter and some other cereal mixed in. Crunchy cereal with milk is just so refreshing to me. Fun fact – Crackin’ Oat Bran was one of the first breakfasts Ed made for me back in the day. What a guy, huh?!
Usually after my cereal, I add a little bit of yogurt with more peanut butter into the bowl for more protein and the satisfaction factor. Makes a big difference!
After breakfast, I headed into the office to see my morning clients. Sometimes I have clients throughout the day, sometimes just in the morning, and sometimes I have a break. I had a break this week, so after my morning clients, I was going to try a little run on a local trail. After driving there, I realized it was still wet and muddy, and for fear I might slip, I forwent the run and came home to eat lunch. It worked out for the best because I enjoy eating lunch at home when I can and not being rushed.
I heated up some lunch, which I had made earlier in the week for meal prep. I had a breakfast skillet combo of eggs, ground beef, cauliflower and some veggies. Plus, some sourdough bread with mashed avocado and sea salt. Literally the best thing ever.
We have a plethora of greens right now, so I’m trying to add them into all of my meals so they don’t go bad. They are really easy to add into all kinds of bowls of sorts. And sauteeing kale with olive oil, garlic powder and sea salt is my favorite thing ever.
This was a really flavorful lunch and kept me satisfied. The combination of eggs and regular ground beef (I usually buy 90/10, but just went for the 80/20 this time), kept me full for hours. I like to sprinkle some cheese on top too!
After lunch, I took Tater and we met up with my neighbor and her toddler for a nice little walk. The weather has been weird and overcast this week – it rained all weekend, so I’m definitely ready to see the sun.
After the walk, I headed back to the office for some night clients. I have a few high school runners right now that I love working with. If only I had known about the importance of nutrition during my high school athletic career….I paid no attention to how foods made me feel back then.
I really enjoy working with them and educating them now, while their brains are still so young. I love to bring my snacks in to show them what balanced snacks look like. This time, I packed these brownies that I made this weekend. They are SO good. I love them because they’re made with ground flaxseed and almond butter (my favorite kind), so lotsa healthy fats for satiation. Alexis’s recipes always speak to me.
It was a little bit of a later night, but luckily, I did some meal prep this weekend so dinner was easy. I reheated my Sweet Potato Turkey Burgers and paired them with some broccoli on the side and called it a done meal.
I finally caught up on This is Us, and we watched some of the Olympics before bed.
How was your Wednesday? What show are you into right now? What’s your favorite Olympic sport?
