Hey greenies, it's Wednesday and time for some "What I Ate Wednesday" fun! The theme for this month is "Fall into Good Habits" as linked up by Jenn over at Peas & Crayons, so check out some of the healthy habits I've been working on, as well as the rest of my gluten-free, vegan food for the day.
|5:00 AM Just woke up: warm water with|
the juice of half a lemon
|5:15 AM Pre-workout snack: 2 slices of Rudi's Multigrian|
Gluten-free Bread with Earth Balance vegan butter and
organic strawberry jelly
Workout: 1 hour pilates 10 Minute Solutions: Pilates Perfect Body. Clearly my favorite pilates DVD! Have you tried this yet?
|7:30 AM Breakfast: "Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie"|
Tastes like ice cream, looks like ice cream...
actually just rice milk, hemp seeds,
chia seeds, raw cacao powder, spinach,
frozen bananas, and frozen strawberries!
But who needs to know, right?
|9:45 AM 1st Morning Snack: "Sneaky Spinach Pancakes"|
with maple agave nectar
|11:00 2nd Morning Snack: Berry bowl with organic strawberries|
and blueberries sweetened with a little xylitol
|12:15 PM Lunch: "Chickpea and Sweet Potato Stew" . I love |
the flavors in this! Cumin, cinnamon, and turmeric...who
knew they could taste so good together?
|2:00 PM: 1st Afternoon Snack: 1 bowl of watermelon|
|3:15 2nd Afternoon snack: Snyder's Gluten-free Pretzels and |
Simply SO Sweet Chili Chips. Strange combo, I know, but as a kid
I loved eating pretzels with Doritos...literally in the same bite.
So I created this little gluten-free (healthier) version and it
definitely fits the bill! Ever tried the two together?
|4:45 Just got home snack: 1 green juice|
with apple, celery, pineapple, kale, lemon
ginger, and cucumber...so refreshing!
My favorite green juice recipe can be found here called, "Sweet Mean Green". Just so you know, I cut the recipe in half.
|5:30 PM: Hold me over till' dinner snack:|
"Chocolate Vanilla Smoothie": 1/2 cup vanilla
coconut milk, Chocolate Sun Warrior Rice Protein Powder,
1cup of spinach, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 3 frozen strawberries
|7:00 PM Dinner: "Tofu Mushroom Stroganoff" with gluten-free|
penne noodles. We love this meal so much, we doubled
the recipe so we could ALL get leftovers the next day!
|"Did you say tofu?"|
|"I love my tofu. Eating it playing with it, it's good for all kinds |
|Oh Avery, tofu makes you silly!|
|Dessert: My version of Oreos and milk... |
Rice Dream Original Rice Milk
(a gluten-free/vegan version of Oreos).
See you all next week...
