Good evening everyone. I hope you are having a great week. We have had a pretty calm week besides McKenzie and McKayla not feeling well. But I have to say they slept very well last night. Whoo hoo; maybe their medicine is working. Like last week I have been feeling good about my eating lately. Yes, I have had a few too many pieces of cake, but I still make sure to practice moderation. I have to say the cake from the girls’ party was amazing so it was well worth it. Since, it’s Wednesday let’s get to it.
Thank you Jenn for hosting.
Post Workout – 6:45am
My favorite treat. Peanut butter protein shake.
The girls and I had pumpkin protein pancakes. They we delicious as usual.
I haven’t had a poached egg in a few days. So, I thought it was time to have one again. They are one of my favorite meals.
I was in the mood for some peanut butter and jelly. So, I ate half a sandwich.
Turkey, hummus, and carrots.
We had some extra chicken from the party over the weekend so I grilled up a few pieces and paired it with leftover green beans and cheesy potatoes.
Green Beans with Almonds
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2 Tbsp. butter
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 lbs. green beans
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4-1/2 cup oven roasted sliced almonds
Heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 45-60 seconds or until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, remove garlic from pan; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
- Stir in broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or just until beans are tender and brother in almost evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in reserved garlic.
- Top with almonds.
Sweet Treat 7pm
Paleo Protein Bar – I love, love, love these. I can’t get enough of them. I seriously have to make sure I only eat one a day; I could eat the entire batch and so could McKayla.
Okay, so I didn’t hit my goal this week with eating a salad. But I have still incorporated a lot of green beans. I don’t feel too bad at least I have added in some green veggies.
