Someone on YouTube asked me to post a video on what I eat in a typical day. I have tried to do this here on my blog but find it difficult to keep up. Similarly, I have trouble writing down what I eat. I get hungry, I eat. I forget to take a picture in between usually. But sometimes I remember! Here are a few of my meals, that I remembered to snap a picture of recently.
On Sunday, I made the clean Meatloaf in my Eating Clean magazine with a green bean and red potato salad. I loved the meatloaf recipe! It uses old-fashioned oats instead of flour. Also included are onions, celery, carrots, thyme, garlic, lean ground beef (grass-fed of course!) and an egg. It’s a keeper for sure.
Surprise surprise, I had pumpkin protein pancakes on Saturday and Monday using my new Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein powder. So good. On Sunday, I decided to grab lunch for $6 at a food truck in Boston called Bon Me. It is Vietnamese and I got a brown rice bowl with bbq pork. The pickled carrots were my favorite part. It was so good and for just $6, I’ll be sure to stop by again.
While this is not a meal, Sobe sent me some samples of their new coconut water infused Lifewater. I’m a huge fan of Lifewater because it is sweetened with Stevia! This version has 35 calories per serving, 80 a bottle vs the zero calorie Lifewater. This was perfect for Sunday morning since I decided to celebrate the holidays a little too much. Naturally, the Mango Mandarin was my favorite flavor. Roomie said he liked the Pomegranate flavor better watered down because it was too sweet.
After my facial on Thursday night, I stopped by Blu, the cafe inside The Sports Club/LA for a salad to go. There is something comforting to me about croutons. I don’t always gets them, but always want them. The salad was pricey but what can you expect at a cafe inside the most expensive club in Boston. I was starving so it was worth it. In the salad is grilled chicken, olives, roasted red peppers, mushrooms and onions with balsamic vinaigrette.
Last week, I decided to make a new recipe. I made chicken breasts stuffed with mashed sweet potatoes, goat cheese and cranberries. It was awesome! I made it again later in the week. I microwaved a sweet potato, mashed it up and added in a couple of TBSP of goat cheese and cranberries. Added it in the center of a thin sliced chicken breast and plopped in a pan. After browning the outsides, I put it in the over at 400F for about 10-15 more minutes. I served it with a side of sautéed Kale with slivered almonds and more cranberries. It’s been a good week of food in my household. Again, this is not food, but Cassey also sent me a yoga bag from her new line and I wanted to share with all of you how sure it is! It doubles nicely as a tripod case as well! Cassey and I have shot a few videos together, run the SF Urbanathlon and remain friends even though she lives in CA now. Her Pilates Ab video was named one of the favorites of the year on the Diet.com YouTube channel. Way to go Cassey! I think her bags are going to do very well for her!Question of The Day:
