Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich or Spinach Salad with fresh veggies and balsamic vinaigrette
8 oz of water
At least 16 oz of water after exercise to rehydrate
For breakfast I had a tasty bowl of oatmeal topped with pecans, dried cranberries, and a little bit of shredded coconut. Absolutely delightful.
Lunch was made up of the leftover White Bean Salad with rice and balsamic vinaigrette. I also had a little bit of the Mediterranean Baked Tofu left from Day Eight. Still just as tasty!
Dinner was a total bust. I was tired and lazy so I went the PB&J route. I made it with almond butter and strawberries preserves. I wasn’t very hungry because I chose the smoothie earlier for my snack and was still full from it.
I also had a little more of the brownie batter for dessert from the day before. I kept what I didn’t eat in the refrigerator. It’s so yummy!
I love me some ab exercises! It feels so good to tighten those abdominal muscles. I can’t really do the plank because of my shoulder but don’t give up! Sometimes I have to split a one minute plank into two thirty second planks. That’s ok too. As long as you hold for a total of one minute.
I also did this building balance video. She is extremely flexible but just focus on breathing and following the movements.
First things first: I’m not sure if all protein powders are vegan, so check before you use it, but I use Shakeology in the chocolate vegan flavor. If you don’t want the added protein or don’t have protein powder, cocoa powder should do.
1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology or 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1-2 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
1 cup almond or soy milk
3-4 ice cubes
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
