8:30am: Coffee with creamer
9:30am: Breakfast: Almond Joy Oatmeal
I was sooooo excited to share this one with you guys! I had whipped this up for breakfast on Saturday morning, and loved it so much it made a repeat appearance come the Monday sunJ
- 1 cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup oats
- sprinkle chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
...possibly one of the GREATEST items from Trader Joe's of ALL-TIME!!!
If you loooooovvvvvvveeeeee coconut, as I do, just RUN and pick up a bag of these sweet (with a little kick of salt) strips. They are just...THE. BEST.
A little sprinkle on your oats (or swap for regular shredded coconut) and you have all the deliciousness of an almond joy bar mixed with heart health Oats.
1:00pm: Lunch- Donna's "Eggless" scrambleJ
So as much as I loveeeeeeeeee coconut, it is equated by my DISLIKE of EGGS. So I came up with this 'eggless scramble' back in the fall when I was trying to have a NON-CARB breakfast...sans those gross eggsJ First, into a pan heated with a SMALL drizzle of olive oil I added:
- 1/2 sliced onion
- 1 diced roasted red pepper
- 5 slices turkey lunch meat
Once the onions were softened & the turkey crisped up, I added a BUNCH of spinach...
I let the spinach wilt for 2 minutes before added a tablespoon of capers (cause I LOVEEEE me some capers!) & a sprinkle of feta....
I let everything melt together for another minute & WALLAH! A QUICK, DELICIOUS, cheesy, salty, filing & super healthy 'eggless' scramble!
I mean, I SUPPOSE you could add eggs or egg whites to my scramble...but...just...WHY?J
Although I WILL admit, I was just wishing for something a LITTLE extra after I mopped up my plate. And these new Coconut Almond Fiber One bars were calling my name....
I had half of one of these chocolate-y coated bars with the plan of going back later that afternoon, but the double punch of the scramble + protein bar kept me full for so long!
4:30pm: Snack- Honeydew
5:30pm: Dinner- Roasted Beet Salad
Again, in the mix:
- Roasted Beets (drizzled with olive oil & baked for 45 minutes at 400.)
- 1/4 diced avocado
- 3 diced green onions
- Handful toasted walnuts
6:30-7:50pm: Beginners Power Yoga class
