Today was all about leftovers! I spent a good amount of time batch cooking this past weekend, and we ate out a few meals. So, between leftovers and cooked food, my kitchen was stocked. It made throwing together delicious meals really easy.
For breakfast, I blended up my typical morning smoothie:
- 1 scoop protein powder (I'm using Vega One, not a promotion, just like it)
- 1 tbs cacao powder
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup almond milk
Super excited blueberry smoothie face!!
Saturday, I cooked a sweet potato and a bunch of mustard greens. I couldn't eat the whole thing, so I put it away for another day. That day was today. I had the chopped greens and sweet potato (plus a little tahini) topped with a little hot sauce, raw pumpkin seeds, and avocado. Talk about an incredibly satisfying lunch. I'm still trying to get in my mega protein smoothies, so I had this alongside this mega drink.
- 1 scoop vegan protein powder
- 2 cups raw spinach
- 1 tbs maca powder
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1 carrot
- ice and water to blend
This had me feeling full and energized, and I spent several hours walking around a large job site. We have a really cool auditorium in construction, and I like to go wander through the bones of a building.
Cool stuff, huh? I like my job. When I got back, I was pretty hungry, so I scarfed this 1/4 cup of almonds.
When I got home, I cleaned the house instead of working out. I got a lot done this weekend, but cleaning was not one of them, and after being out of town for 2 weeks, the house was getting out of control.
After that, I warmed up some dinner. Josh and I had a lovely lunch at Three Fold Noodle Co on Saturday, and I have more to share with you on that later, but I came home with a bunch of leftovers. Instead of letting them go to waste or shoving them in my mouth before the reset started, I saved them and had them with a delicious side of crispy brussels sprouts.
I steamed the sprouts in a pan with some tamari, and I had the pan a liiiiiiittle too hot, so I ended up with some very browned brussels. They were still good, though. I also had a couple veggie dumplings and some killer noodles. The meal was significantly heavier than the light stuff I was eating all day, but it was yummy.
After that, I settled into an epsom salt bath and hit the sack. Great first day start to the reset!
