Daniel made me a beautiful salad for lunch. Can’t go wrong with some strawberries and blueberries!
For dinner I followed yet another recipe from Melissa at My Whole Food Life. Easy White Bean Salad. It’s so refreshing! I liked it but I added some balsamic vinaigrette to the final product for some more tangy flavor.
Now, get ready for this amazing dessert I had! I kind of stole the idea from Pinterest. Unfortunately, I closed out of the link so I’m not sure where it originated from but I’ve adapted it a bit for the vegan diet. It was also originally a cookie dough mix but mine became more of a brownie batter.
Excuse my photography skills, it was late and I was ready to dig in!
What’s in it:
2 Tbsp almond butter
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
2-3 Tbsp Almond milk
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy! You can eat as is or put it in the fridge for 20 minutes for a firmer, cooler treat.
Serving suggestion: add chocolate chips or cocoa powder to make it even more choco-licious! If I had either on hand I totally would have done that–but alas, I didn’t. And I’m also not sure if chocolate chips are vegan. Maybe the semi-sweet are but obviously themilk chocolate chips are not. *sigh*
Workout Time! The 4th day of the Five Day Workout Plan. Shazam!
I had to skip the pushups because of my shoulder but was able to do everything else. Then I did a little yoga core exercise.
