I’m generally a high energy person. Which is a nice way of saying sometimes I drive people around me crazy because I can be a little too perky. Sorry, I can’t really help it.
But Monday, after a less-than-quality night of sleep, I was dragging. I had
a two cups of coffee but I was still feeling like I was in a bit of a haze. I decided to go for high energy foods, to keep me from nodding off at my desk becoming one of the people on True Life: I’m Addicted to Caffiene. Yes, I watched that on Monday. Quality TV.
So these are my energy packed eats from yesterday!
Breakfast was nothing crazy new, but I did find a stray jar of White Chocolate Wonderful in my pantry. Just when I thought I was on the verge of being out of peanut butter. It was a miracle.
1 banana, handful of ice, 1/2 scoop whey protein powdered, 2 handfuls of spinach, 5 drops of liquid vanilla stevia, pinch of xanthan gum, plus a little peanut butter.
I normally have a piece of fruit, but I knew I needed a little something more substantial so I had half a pack of these.
I packed the leftovers from this dinner, so I was glad to have such a protein packed lunch on hand. Broccoli and tempeh. Protein packed, and quite delicious. Not to mention cheaper and healthier than what’s served in the cafeteria!
I finished off the pack of the aforementioned nuts, and also crunched on a giant fuji apple.
As soon as I got home from work, I had a bowl of 0% chobani and some frozen blueberries, plus a little more Samoa Granola. A snack with a combination of carbs and proteins (like this one) really gives me a pick me up. It powered me through a quick workout, before I ran off to meet some awesome Fashion Bloggers.
No, I didn’t get a pink table cloth. I ate it from the comfort of my bed, while catching up with my google reader 😉
After the fashion bloggers meet up, I grabbed fro-yo at Sweet Frog with Lindsay, Taylor and Brett.
There has been a frozen yogurt turf war going on in Carytown. Sweet Frog has been there for a little while, and now Yapple frozen yogurt moved in right next door. I’ve tried both, so I can officially say that my heart remains with Sweet Frog. Chocolate + cake batter is the best combination, in case you were wondering.
Sadly, the frozen yogurt gave me way too much energy (I blame the sugar!) and I could not fall asleep again. I don’t know why I’ve been having so much trouble sleeping lately, but even my white noise tracks aren’t helping.
