Okay… so this is how I normally start my day. One combination or another.
As I had said in a previous post, the last two weeks of my life have been very busy and on the go. Lots of eating out, which meant a lot of soups, salads, and pastas. I didn’t take many pictures of those meals, but here is what some of my at home lunches and dinner look like…
Can you tell I love hard boiled eggs, black beans, onions and peppers?
I mix in black beans, and peppers to my hard boiled egg.
Now that my travel has been minimized, I went grocery shopping.
Here is a peek into what I bought…
I make several trips to the grocery store every week for fresh fruit and veggies (fresh veggies not pictured) and for milk and Trop 50 Orange Juice (also not pictured).
Okay… on to my new “creations” that I made this weekend and tweeted about.
The first one is my veggie version of a sushi roll!
About half cup of Onions, peppers, and blacks (more or less to suite you), one laughing cow cheese wegde, and a Flat Out Wrap.
A whole roll is approximately: 203 calories, 16g of protein and 5g of fat.
The next one is a twist on PB&J.
approximately 3 tbsp of White Chocolate Wonderful, 1 cup of chopped strawberries and one Flat Out wrap.
A whole roll is approximately: 204 calories, 19g protein, and 24g of fat.
The whole plate is just over 600 calories. And is a perfect amount to split between two people.
And last… I went to a health food store in my area to look for a protein shake or supplement to help me get more protein into my daily diet. After talking to the store owner, she suggested that I look into this…
It’s only 100 calories if added to water. And it has 18g of protein. Add it to my Fat Free milk and it’s 190 calories with 27g of protein! I love it! Their website has lots of cool recipes for shakes. I made the ICED CARAMEL MOCHA PROTEIN LATTE, except I made a few tweaks. I used my fat free milk, and I did not use caramel syrup. Instead I made coffee with Starbucks Natural Fusion Caramel, then cooled it for this particular shake.
From now on I will be better at taking food pictures and now that I am not so busy with travel (and life!) I will get creative with food recipes.
