I know I’m way behind on updating the Vegan Challenge. Get ready for a bunch of updates!
|Wake Up||8 oz of water|
|Breakfast||Oatmeal with a variety of toppings OR 2 pieces of whole wheat toast topped with a nut butter of your choosing and a side of fruit (apple orange or banana)||8 oz of water|
|Morning||8 oz of water before lunch (I always keep a water bottle handy)|
|Lunch||Sandwich with whole wheat bread; spinach; slices of cucumber; tomato; yellow squash; and white bean pesto dip spread on each slice||8 oz of water|
|Afternoon||If you're hungry any time throughout the day have an apple with 2 Tbsp of nut butter (I like almond or peanut butter)||8 oz of water before dinner|
|Dinner||Sweet Potato Surprise from Love and Lemons||8 oz of water|
|Exercise||At least 16 oz of water after exercise to rehydrate|
Breakfast was toast with almond butter and banana slices.
For lunch, I felt like I needed some fresh veggies so I spread the white bean pesto on a sandwich and stuffed it with lots of greens, cucumber, tomato, and yellow squash.
Dinner time, we got a lot more creative. Sweet Potato Surprise! I found it while searching for vegan recipes. It’s delicious!
I was expecting it to be chunks of sweet potato and noodles, but blending the sweet potatoes into a sauce was a nice spin (pun intended).
The white flakes are the Panko. They didn’t brown much but they add a nice crispy texture to the dish.
For exercise, it’s a rest day! I did some stretching and relaxed. Make sure to drink lots of water still!
