So I was pretty lazy yesterday when it came to my meals.
Here’s the break down:
Cornflakes 100 cal
Almond milk 30 cal
Lean Cuisine Spinach Artichoke Dip with pita bread 200 cal
Fruit Smoothie 152 cal
Watermelon 50 cal
Smart Ones Pizza Minis 270
Velveeta Shells & Cheese 360
Total = 1162 cal
One thing you’ll learn about me is that I LOVE smoothies. It’s how I prefer to consume my fruit because I can get multiple servings into one.
Check out my usual fruit smoothie
I didn’t have blueberries or blackberries this time so it’s not the prettiest color but the taste is amazing.
Here’s what’s in it:
- 1 banana
- 5 fresh strawberries
- A handful of fresh spinach
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 small container of greek yogurt
- A handful of frozen fruit
I love adding greek yogurt to smoothies for the protein. It’s so good after a great workout. Yesterday I ended up running a little over 3 miles as my workout. Running is my go-to for working out but I’ve never been that great at it. In fact, running sucks, but cardio has so many benefits. Daniel said he’d teach me how to swim better so may I’ll start doing that for cardio. I can never get the breathing down, I always feel like I’m gasping for air. Any awesome swimmers out there? Feel my envy.
Well for dinner I was left to fend for myself while Daniel was out so I made a quick meal out of Velveeta. I tossed in some chopped tomatoes and didn’t add all the cheese in an effort to make it healthier.
Sweet and simple. And pretty tasty too!
I hope you all had a happy Independence Day!
