Let the sunshine in...

Monday Recap:

8:00am:  Hot Lemon Water

9:30am:  Coffee with creamer

11:30am:  "Brunch"- Spinach "pizza"
OK...so I think since we had not one, but TWO dinners (and TWO desserts!) with my Aunt & Aunt-in-law's on Easter Sunday, I was genuinely not even hungry until almost lunch time (ummmm...ya THINK that's a sign of too much food??J)  So by the time I was hungry, I quickly whipped up one of my more unattractive dishes...(sorry 'bout that!)
But hear me out:  This has all the flavors of pizza...without the crust!  In a pan drizzled with VERY little olive oil, mix:
  • 1 diced garlic clove
  • 1/2 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • handful of mini turkey pepperonis
  • sprinkle of mozzarella
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
Heat up everything in that order, cooking the spinach until just wilted (mine went a little too long, hence why it's barely visible!)  But tangy tomatoes, gooey mozzarella  salty pepperoni & some bulk and LOTS of vitamins from the spinach...can you beat that kinda "pizza" for breakfast??J

Wasn't too hungry for the rest of the afternoon...so it looked like this....
2:00pm:  Snack #1- 1/4 cup chocolate trail mix

3:30pm:  Snack #2-  Apple (no pic)

5:30pm:  Dinner- Honey Mustard Salmon with salad

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
I marinated the salmon in the mix for a bit before slathering it on the salmon & popping it into a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

And in keeping with 'salad night tradition', I sided the salmon with a simple salad of lettuce & roasted beets mixed with olive oil & a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

6:30-7:50pm:  Beginners Power Yoga class

That wraps up Monday...and in a Tuesday "preview," I must say I found it very easy to hop out of bed this morning to workout since the sun was up & ready for me and looking so beautiful this morning.  I ain't gonna hate on that part of this seasonJ

Have a good (and sunny!) Tuesday, everyone!J
