After such a great weekend at the Tone It Up retreat, I was excited to keep the healthy momentum going yesterday!
For breakfast, I started off with yet another smoothie. Have you tried this coconut mango smoothie yet? Get on it! It’s my current favorite. I tried it with toasted coconut on top but truthfully I think I like just plain coconut on top better. I guess I like the chewy texture more than the crunchy texture. Anyways.
I intended on eating an apple for a morning snack but the morning got away from me and before I knew it, it was time for lunch.
Yet another delicious salad from the work salad bar. I’ve been sticking with this combination because it’s yummy and really fills me up. After I demolished this salad I actually had a handful of gummy bears but I forgot to snap a picture. Balance, right? For some reason, I was craving them!
After work, I made a quick stop at Trader Joe’s for a few essentials (namely almond butter and some produce) but I also walked out with a bag of these.
This is what happens when you go to Trader Joe’s on an empty stomach! These little pretzels are so addicting. They taste just like the top of an everything bagel.
Once Alex got home, I started making dinner. I wanted to make a healthier version of mashed potatoes. I’ve made mashed cauliflower in the past and it was fine but I didn’t think Alex would like it. I decided to compromise and make cauliflower mashed potatoes. We both loved it so I’ll share the recipe soon!
I also roasted some chickpeas in the oven. I think roasted might be my favorite way to eat chickpeas.
Here’s a super easy recipe for roasting chickpeas if you’ve never tried it! We were both pretty full after dinner so we digested for a bit and then went for a walk around the neighborhood. I’m loving the temperatures right now! I hope it stays like this!
After we got back from a walk, we finished a documentary on Netflix and I munched on frozen grapes.
These have been my go-to night time snack lately! I’ll probably still be eating these even when the temperatures drop!
