I've been channeling my inner Cher lately, and wishing I could turn back time, and find a way to put summer on repeat. It's already getting darker at 8 again, leaves are changing colors, and I'm not happy about it.
Now that my pouty pants have been hung out to dry, let's swan dive into my day of eats!
After going back and forth about kicking my butt into gear with Jillian Michaels first thing in the morning, I somehow convinced my body to cooperate and get it done. My arms would like to veto that decision.
The fast was broken with what else for breakfast but, CHOCOLATE.
I got a box of Chocolate Power O's at the Gluten Free Expo, and mixed them with some plain greek yogurt, ½ scoop chocolate protein powder, and cocoa powder, because why the hell not?!
After a massacre trying to stir all that in a fun size paper bowl, peanut butter was there to heal all battle wounds. Turns out chocolate coated bean cereal is hella good.
A couple of carrots and pb held me over until lunch, but if you've spent two seconds on this blog, you'll know that's a regular occurrence. And if not, wait two more seconds and you'll know. 😉
I'm really great at procrastinating most things, grocery shopping included. I take pleasure in seeing how long I can survive on oatmeal and frozen broccoli.
I like to think it inspires some crafty kitchen endeavors, like this salmon, kale and broccoli concoction.
I threw in a can of salmon (since I didn't have an egg to make my salmon burgers) in a pan with some CSA kale and frozen broccoli. Over some lettuce greens for maximum greenage, and so I don't break my salad-a-day streak for like 10 years now.
And the last of my Dijon, which is just about the second saddest thing in my world. An empty peanut butter jar? It's like The Notebook, Marley and Me, and Titanic are playing simultaneously in my kitchen. Straight up carnage.
One of the perks of putting off grocery shopping as long as possible?
You get to eat the salmon meal twice in a row!
Still in the pyrex, eaten cold, cuz I'm lazy AF when it comes to dinner. Plus the addition of some leftover brown rice with butter, which is the only way I can actually eat brown rice.
Call me Aladdin, cuz I am all team Jasmine when it comes to rice. Butter still included.
Plus a strawberry rhubarb Siggi's for dessert, which I alluded to on Instagram earlier.
The fuller fat is so much more satisfying, and feels more like an actual dessert than just the probiotic protein-rich snack that it is.
Now if you'll pardon me, I have to go tell summer that it's not too late now to say sorry, because I am missing more than it's body.
Make it a great day!
Do you procrastinate about anything?
Team brown or jasmine rice? 6 words..."I can show you the world...."
