This morning is day two of uber cleanliness. To be honest, I’m feeling pretty crappy. But it is that TOM so I’m pretty sure that’s what it is, but it is hitting me hard. I’m feeling really weak and tummy achey and just plain tired. I liked it back when I was eating more artificially! Just kidding! I am sure it doesn’t have anything to do with my diet. It has/will be just a yucky couple of days.
I wasn’t sure how I’d get through the workout this morning but I did. It was 50 minutes of boot camp lovin. I love the workouts, if that’s ok for me to say since I write them.
About 8am I had this:
Yeah, it fell apart. I’m not sure if it was due to the plain yogurt subbed in for the cottage cheese or I just flipped it too early. I was hungry while I made the kids food so I dipped my fork in the peanut butter a few times. Then I was too full to finish the whole pancake. So I didn’t.
The morning was spent signing Caleb up for soccer (there were only 3 spots left! I guess that’s what I get for being late…) and heading up to Good Earth. How I love that place. It’s a bit pricey though. But I got something really good and fun. Are you ready? See below, my lunch/snack eaten at noon:
1 slice of banana nut bread, 1/2 t. coconut oil, almond butter and peas
“Banana nut Bread? You’re supposed to be eating CLEAN!” This banana nut bread was made by a company in SLC and is gluten and wheat free (I’m trying to avoid wheat for a bit to see if it has anything to do with my very minor stomach issues. Just an experiment), and the only ingredients are brown rice flour, water, egg, banana, walnuts, honey and canola oil. How’s that for banana nut bread huh?
And coconut oil? Wahuh? That’s a saturated fat, you’re thinking. How is that good for you? Well, it is a plant based saturated fat which is much better for you than animal based saturated fats. The fatty acid chain is much shorter so it affects your body completely differently than animal based saturated fats which is where saturated fat gets all the bad hype. This stuff is GOOD! It’s pricey ($13 for 16 oz) but I think it will last a while. I only used 1/2 teaspoon on my bread and it was PLENTY. It gave it the best tropical coconuty flavor. That paired with the banana was like I died and went to Hea-Hawaii!
After lunch, my mom came to get the kids for a sleepover! Yahooy! A big-kid free house for 24 hours! Wow! What am I going to do with myself? I’m going to go take a big nap right now, that’s what I’m going to do.
After my nap I had a great snack that I got from Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie. She has some amazing, creative ideas! Check her out!
I made some of Katie’s tofu pudding. Don’t be scared off! I’m not vegetarian or anything but I loved blending up tofu in things. The texture is amazing. I put some tofu, banana, cocoa and stevia. It was so fluffy and yummy. Expect a tofu pudding tutorial come soon!
Ok, that’s where the pictures stop for tonight. Oops. Dinner was scarfed down in five minutes because I was running really late for a fitness consultation and then the client didn’t even show up! Ugh! Some sort of egg dinner was the plan but all I had time for was some celery withn peanut butter and a smoothie made with orange, banana, coconut oil and little sweet peppers. This drink was way good. I am in love with coconut oil!!! It adds such a tropical flavor that I love! I will be trying an all natural “mounds bar”. We’ll see how it turns out!
After work, or non work I guess, I had a couple frozen grapes and some of a frozen fruit cup (only ingredients are fruit – nothing added) mixed with a few bites of plain yogurt. It tasted way yummy together.
I’m feeling much better tonight that I did this morning. I really like that I”m having to be creative with my food. It makes me try new and different things.
That’s all for today! On to tomorrow!
