And in the 'less calorie' corner...

Monday Recap:

8:00am:  Coffee with creamer & cinnamon

9:30am:  Breakfast- Vitatop

11:00am:  Snack #1- Cheese stick  (I was STARVINGGGGGGGGG!)

12:30pm:  Lunch- Tropical Smoothie

So in an effort to use up all the scraps & stragglers, I took the leftover peaches & mangos from the caprese salad, froze them and used them for the sweet fruit in this smoothie!  I love when I feel somewhat clever & thrifty...even if it's just 'somewhat' J
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 pineapple Chobani yogurt
  • Frozen leftover peach & mango slices
  • Drop of coconut extract
The frozen fruit made this so thick & ice cream-like that I had to eat part of it with a spoon... 
Mock ice cream for lunch??  I'm OK with this. 

3:00pm:  Snack #2- Healthy Cinnamon Toast  (starving...againJ)

5:30pm:  Dinner- Salad with Maple-Almond Vinaigrette 
OK, so...Scott & I had a salad for dinner on Sunday night that was so ridiculously delicious that it was the first dish I've caved and had seconds of a dinner in YEARSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.  YEARS, people!  Pretty impressive for a salad, no??  I'm planning on making it again & sharing it with you guys later this week, but for now, I'll just give you a preview with the dressing, since that ALONE is just BEYOND DELICIOUS!
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
(that's enough for 1 salad....double for 2!)  I mixed the salad with said dressing, grated parmesan cheese & a sprinkle of almond (and of course a lettuce/kale & spinach mix).  Parm & almond butter, you say??  YES!  The cheese swims right along with the sweet & salty dressing to create a luscious coating around the kale.  It is BEYOND divine.  I'm not sure how Scott & I will have any other dressing from this day forwardJ hehehehehhehe

6:30-7:45pm:  Beginner's Power Yoga
Phew...I was sweatin up a storm last night after a weekend of gentle yoga.  But it felt PHENOMENAL!

Well...that about wraps it up for today.  I have another zucchini 'pasta' recipe on the horizon for tonight.  Stay tuned for my newest twist & have a great Tuesday!J
