8:00am: Coffee with creamer
9:30am: Breakfast- "Carrot Cake" Smoothie
So I thought this concoction would be a totally fun & appropriate smoothie for the upcoming Easter season...
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 shredded carrots
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- Dash of nutmeg & ginger
...well, before I blended in a handful of spinach, just becauseJ
Guess I'll have to stick to my "Carrot Cake Oatmeal" till I upgrade my blender...AGAIN!
12:00pm: Lunch- "Happy salad"
& "Health Nut" Toast with butter and flax
...OK...make that 2 slices. After my unsatisfying smoothie, 2 slices of bread seemed like a splurge, but a worth it one since I felt satisfied for the rest of the afternoon. Happy salad + toast makes everything betterJ
6:00pm: Dinner- Italian Wedding Soup
That cold wind ushering back into NJ just CALLED for soup last night and this one just couldn't have been easier.
Starting by sauteing:
- 1/2 large onion
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- 1 diced carrot
- 2 diced celery stalks
Once the veggies have sauteed for about 10 minutes, toss in a box of chicken broth and some salt & pepper and bring to boil.
Meanwhile, I rolled up some mini meatballs (mixed with breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt & pepper) and tossed those into the pot once the soup was boiling. Cook for 10 minutes.
And finally, I added in a box of defrosted chopped spinach AND my favorite...
Boil for another 10 minutes and your '30 minute/one-pot dinner' is complete!
I was worried this was going to be kinda bland, but NO WAY! All of the veggies mixed with the little meatballs just hit the spot.
EVERYONE downed this one!
6:30pm: Dessert- Coconut cake
...even if I think this one went over just as wellJ
7:00-8:20pm: Hatha Yoga
Hope you guys have a great weekend!!
