Two for one...

Hey everyone!  So, sorry I'm a day late...but after the day getting away from me yesterday, I realized that Tuesday & Wednesday were nearly IDENTICAL anywaysJ  So you get a DOUBLE recap for the dayJ

Breakfast:  Tuesday- Pineapple smoothie & Wednesday- Almond Joy oatmeal (with banana)

Pineapple Smoothie
  • Pineapple Chobani
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • Chia seeds

Lunch:  Hummus, pretzel sticks, low fat cheese sticks & mini turkey pepperoni

I whipped up a quick hummus since we were CLEAR out!
  • 1 can drained & rinsed chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil, to create desired consistency
Combine everything in a blender & mix until smooth.  (slowly adding olive oil until smooth)  

I don't know why I continually buy hummus when homemade is sooo easy & SOOOOO good.  And BONUS:  Katie INHALED this!

Snack:  So after "Easter Bunny" shopping just happened to coincide with one of those endless Target-browsing sessions (you KNOW what I'm talking about!), I stumbled on these AND tore into em right in the aisle!  Very tasty and saved me from passing out in aisle 12J
(PS- Easter Bunnies who are delivering goodies to YOUNG kids...Target had really cute little Sesame Street books in the $1 bins.  Just a heads upJ)

Yep, thanks to Scott working EXTRA late the last couple nights...dinner both Tuesday AND Wednesday was Spaghetti Squash Casserole.  Yes...that casserole has feed us 2 dinners + dinner for my MOM + 1 leftover serving!  It was the gift that kept on givingJ

(Sided with a little leftover stuffed cabbage last night tooJ
Our favorite add-in's to the casserole at the moment is roasted broccoli & spinach...but I already have a plan for my NEXT casserole.  And it MAY just involve those mini pepperonisJ  Stay tuned... 

And dessert last night:  A slice or three of my Mom's famous "Easter sweet bread."  
You just can't have enough of this stuff this time of year! 
Katie agreesJ

Workouts:  Tuesday- my first day off after EIGHT days in a row (wohoo!) & Wednesday- TOUGH Power in, "I still don't know how I carried the baby out of the gym after that class" tough!  I can't even count how many chaturangas & BONUS push-ups were doneJ

Alrighty, I'm thinking maybe tomorrow I'll switch it up & share some Easter recipes that you might use this weekend.  Preview:  It involves lots of SPRING LEMONS!J

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
