exclaimed the cashier after ringing up my groceries. #truestory. no boo! this is how we LIVE.
2% cottage cheese – protein snack
brown rice (microwaved kind- forget that pot)
fresh fruit- buy whatever is on sale. it’s almost summer so you have a lot to choose from. this week, i got us strawberries and blueberries. and you know bananas are always cheap!
fresh, frozen veggies (sweet potatoes, spinach)
‘i can’t believe it’s not butter’ spray butter – for popcorn, our omelettes, and cooking in general. sometimes the butter flavor satisfies your craving. sometimes.
La Tortilla Factory whole wheat/white low-cal high fiber tortillas- for breakfast tacos, quesadillas, w/ pb2 for a snack, homemade tortilla chips.. only 50 cals for 1!
dry ranch dressing mix for seasoning my chicken, fish, pork, potatoes, etc. i seriously need to check Sams so i can buy this in bulk.
now fast forward to sunday- i made this FANTASTIC smoothie tonight!! do NOT let the color fool you. although i’m sure by now you’ve seen a green smoothie somewhere.
half a banana
3/4th cup frozen chopped spinach
1 tsp sugar-free vanilla pudding mix
1 scoop protein powder
1 cup almond milk (add more if needed, but not too much!)
SWEET, creamy, and dreamy! and most important, GOOD for you. and stop making that face cause if i hadn’t told you there was spinach in there you wouldn’t have known.
oooo it was JUST what i needed after my quick two mile run. i usually drink my smoothies from my fav mug, but i needed to show off that beautiful color. now, what can i call this thing?? suggestions??
*** help me name this smoothie!! all comments must be posted below to qualify. some lucky reader will win a little something courtesy of fitfoodiele by this FRIDAY, June 8th!! ***
s/n: school’s OUT for all you educators!!! let the summer vacations ensue:)
