For breakfast I had oatmeal with dried cranberries, cinnamon, and banana slices.

The Sweet Potato Surprise tastes just as good the next day. I will definitely be making it again.

For a snack I came up with the idea to make Zucchini Chips. I’ve seen recipes floating around the internet before but I added my own mix to it. Recipe to come!

Let’s just say, they turned out so good, I ate them all by myself and made them again the next day. Two whole zucchinis in two days. Oh yeah.

For dinner I returned to the old favorite.

easy stir fry

Stir fry never gets old, and it’s so easy to make!

For exercise I started the Five Day Workout Plan all over again.

Five Day Workout Plan Day 1

If 5lb weights are too light bump it up a bit! I use 10 lbs to get a better workout.

Day 13
Eat Drink
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

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!
