oh wait it is only Wednesday!!
Nothing much to say today but I wanted to stop and post my meals....
Breakfast was 1/2 cup of Steel cut oats, a chopped up fresh Ontario grown McIntosh apple, 1/3 cup granola and 1/2 cup Vanilla Almond breeze. This was so delicious, the firmness of the apples only partly cooked and then the crunch of the granola made me want more, more, more but I stopped at the one serving... but it is definitely a do over.
Morning snack was a bowl of cantaloupe and a Fruit to go bar.
For lunch I had a smoothie again today....they are so quick and easy, I can drink it while I prepare the children something.
The special today was a frozen banana, almond butter, chocolate Almond breeze, spinach and flaxmeal.
YUMMY!!! In case you were wondering about the spinach... in a smoothie is tasteless so you get a funky colour and mega vitamins but no funny taste....this is a bonus!
Afternoon boost will be fresh pineapple and yogurt.
Supper will be brown rice, butternut squash and Italian sausage.
I feel on top of the world today, so much has happened this week and I feel stronger for having gone through it.
I have ordered myself the Eat-Clean book for families and Jillian Michael's book Winning by Losing and I am looking forward to getting them in the mail hopefully by the middle of next week.
I have the Eat- Clean Diet book and I use it almost daily so I am positive that the family edition is going to bring me great ideas to get the children eating more clean meals because to be honest I usually have to prepare two completely separate meals (one for hubby & me and the other for the children) and I don't want to keep doing this so some new ideas would be great.
As for Jillian's book.... she inspires me and challenges me so this was an obvious must read.
