I hope you’re having a good week so far! I’ve been really inconsistent about taking pictures of all my meals lately, but I made sure to do it Monday for you. Thanks to the gang for hosting the usual WIAW link up.
I made a bunch of Superhero muffins from the Run Fast East Slow cookbook over the weekend and I am just loving them. They are glorious – made with wholesome ingredients like zucchini, carrots, almond flour, maple syrup and so much more. Put this cookbook on your Christmas list!
Breakfast was two muffins with some almond butter smeared on top alongside two scrambled eggs. I tried to rush to eat this because Tater was having a temper tantrum. Eventually, I took her for a walk and came back to finish, which took away from some of the deliciousness.
Mondays are typical very busy, but I had a few cancellations which opened up my morning. My first client wasn’t until noon, so I headed to a coffee shop for a few before heading in to the office. I got a chocolate orange tea, which was delicious. I’m starting to feel sick (and trying my best to stay healthy) and somewhat congested, so tea all the way. I also knocked out some emails with clients and also with brands for 2017.
After I got to the office, my stomach started growling, so I ate a pear, some greek yogurt and one of these gingerbread cookies. I figured I should save one for later, since it would be a late night with clients.
Did you know 1 pear has nearly 6 grams of fiber? That’s more than bananas and apples. If you’re trying to up your fiber, pears are a simple way to do so!
After my first appointment, I had a bit of a lull, so I started planning out a wellness challenge we’re offering in January. Since my gym is also very close to my office, I popped in for 20 minutes on the stepper as a “break,” then headed back to the office for a late lunch.
For lunch, I stopped by Publix and had my first “pub sub” as they call them. I got the mediterranean wrap, but got it on their hearty 5 grain italian bread (because I was drooling just looking at it), and I added some turkey for extra protein! It was amazing. It had hummus, carrots, cucumbers, spinach, tomatoes, onions and feta cheese. I got to talking to this sweet old man in line who told me all the secrets about ordering the Pub Subs, and how you can add chips and a drink for $1.50. I asked him what he was getting, and he said the usual ham and cheese with tomatoes only. I’m sure he comes in multiple times a week – so cute.
I also got an apple and kombucha to go alongside it, and then in typical Sarah fashion, spilled half of the kombucha in my purse! So now not only does my purse smell like raspberry lemon kombucha, but it also has little microbes living in it, I’m guessing?! Time for a new purse, perhaps.
I then worked through some nutrition assessments and three follow up clients before heading home around 7. It was the perfect night to try Hello Fresh! This was my first time trying a packaged meal system, so I was excited! We made the skewerless chicken kebabs over mediterranean couscous for dinner. It even came with a lemon yogurt sauce for a drizzle.
I snacked on one of Alexis’ muffins while I was waiting for the chicken and cous cous to cook. Her recipes always kill it, btw.
I think I may do a whole post on Hello Fresh meals soon, but this one was a win. Very delicious and ready in under 30 minutes!
I’ve been eating ice cream with some dark chocolate for dessert nightly. It feels good on my sore throat and after races, I tend to eat more ice cream than usual (at least I know this about myself). When Turkey Hill goes on sale (buy 2, get 3 free), you buy them and enjoy them. I’ve been loving mixing cookie dough and cookies ‘n cream.
Have you tried a meal delivery service before?
