I found that when I used my blog to keep me more on track I .... get this... stayed more on track!! So here are some meals!
Yesterday morning I made my awesome tropical smoothie, but this time had some spinach on hand.
Check out this green! :D I love this color! I want to paint my walls this color and buy matching throw pillows. You can't even taste the spinach in this. I recommend it as a great way to get more veggies in.
For dinner I had a great salad. .. But I need to remember to position each addition nicely so I can take a prettier picture!
In the mix:
- baby carrots
- jalapeno peppers
- black bean burger
I ate this dressed with Wishbone Honey Dijon. After tasting this dressing, I promptly divorced Pete and married the dressing. SO GOOD! I do want to check the ingredient list though. Whenever something is this tasty, there is usually high fructose corn syrup in it. I like to try to stay away from this. It's hard though since it's in everything!
This morning I felt I initiated myself into the "Healthy Blogger" world. I finally bought Chia seeds!!! :D
*Naturally I didn't take a photo* *Still learning blogging*
As soon as I opened them, I had to resist the urge to mix them in water & slather them all over Peach to see if I could grow my very own Chia Pet.
|Don't you dare.|
I was excited to finally try these little powerhouses out. They have a ton of omega 3s in them and have a gelling action when exposed to water that makes them plump up, keeping you fuller *not a word for longer.
I added them to my usual sandwich thin with peanut butter, 'naner, & cinnamon.
I can't wait to try them in other recipes where they really plump up.
So that's all for now! I will be photographing more stuff that I eat soon & attempting to stay on track in the meantime :)
