Wow, Wednesday already? This week is flying by. Must be that holiday Monday that happened. This week is already full of changes and hopefully future rewards, and I’m ready to get this September starting off on the right foot.
Another Wednesday, another new month, which means another day of eats.
Again, I’ve been failing miserably on my more sleep goal. Oops.
I did manage to still get up and go to spin class. I made sure to purchase a heart rate monitor, so I can be aware of my heart rate during class and make sure I don’t push it too much.
Breakfast – 7:30:
Breakfast was a granola pancake.
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup banana (melted, and mashed)
- ~1/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup granola
- handful of frozen blueberries.
Mixed it all together, minus the granola, then folded the granola in. Cooked in a big pan with about a teaspoon of coconut oil.
You can also add a little almond milk to the batter, if it’s needed to thin out.
Topped this off with some creamy almond butter. Yummy.
Anyone else find it super weird to wake up early and instead of being light it’s super dark out? Looks like fall is coming soon!
Lunch – 12:
Lunch include socca with a side of roasted zucchini and aspragus.
The socca was simply made with 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour, 1/2 cup water, and cooked in a teaspoon of coconut oil.
After, I added a little extra coconut oil and nutritional yeast, so it made a “cheesy” like sauce.
Also a side of avocado in a shot glass.
Snack – 3:30:
For a snack I decided to try out a new recipe, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as good as I hoped…it also crumbled a little too much and is clearly not blog worthy yet.
I’ll have to work on this one!
And yah, I happen to think the green colour is cool;)
I had this alongside leftover greek yogurt and a few strawberries and blueberries.
Oh goodness, I just realized how excited I am for Starbucks’ red holiday cups to return!! I wonder when they get those in?
I’m pretty sure last year they started giving them out early, so hopefully the same goes for this year.
I think I’m getting a little too ahead of myself over here.
Dinner – 6:
After I did all my “housekeeping” chores for the day, I whipped up something fast…
Just a simple slice of toasted ezekiel bread with avocado an egg, and a side of kale “chips”.
Easy, but tasty.
Now I’m drinking a cup of chocolate coconut butter milk.
This was fantastic.
It created a warm coconut-ty, yet chocolatey beverage. One of the best combinations out there.
Off to catch up on Grimm. Enjoy your Wednesday, make it a good one!
Anyone else excited for the holiday cups at Starbucks?
