[aka What Haley Ate Monday ]
Yesterday’s eats seemed to get weirder and weirder as the day progressed.
It started off pretty routinely with a hot quinoa breakfast [as usual I ate half the serving before teaching and half after class].
[1/4 c quinoa + 1 Tbsp chia seeds + 1 c water + cinnamon + maca + protein powder]
Yesterday’s TurboKick class was a butt-kicker [literally – we did a few rounds of glutes at the end of class], which meant I had some extra calories to consume.
After class, I ran a few errands. I got hungry right around the time I got to Costco, so I had a handful of almonds followed by some blackberries + strawberries [oh how I miss the late summer in the Northwest… wild blackberries galore!].
Alright, here’s where it starts getting weird. I really wanted chips, goat cheese + salsa for lunch, but I knew I had to bulk add some type of nutrients to the mix, so I rummaged through the cabinets and threw something really random together. Let’s just call it a taco salad of sorts.
[red leaf lettuce + 1/2 c refried black beans + goat cheese + salsa + corn chips]
Afternoon snack = homemade cereal + more berries…
followed by a thick slice of yacon [I told you it just kept getting weirder]…
[yacon is a radish-like veggie that originated in South America. It is delicious ice cold from the fridge! Super juicy!]
Finally, dinner was a bowl of chicken curry [organic free-range chicken breast + sweet potatoes + veggies].
What a randomly delicious day.
Off to eight hours of practicum! Enjoy your Tuesday!
