This green monster was composed of two frozen bananas, a little bit of berry smoothie mix, a nice handful of spinach, some OJ, ice, and amazing grass. My sister had the grass and I thought, hey if I can't ever taste the spinach then why not just throw some of this in there. It didn't ruin the smoothie or anything but it was definitely not as sneaky as the spinach! And PS the pattern of the glass makes this one look extra gross, oops.
I really believe my diet was the reason I didn't feel bad while I had my cold. I definitely had all the symptoms of a cold, but I never got that super sluggish body ache. Since then I've been inspired. I went to the grocery store after work yesterday and left with some produce, some Chobani, and some healthy snacks to bring to work. Before bed I cooked up some of the veggies for today's epic lunch. I made a sandwich with peppers, onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, avocado, a little cheddar, and some red hot. It was amazing! And I made enough veggies to eat it again later in the week.
And my clean eating quest continued today when I took my first trip to the one and only...
I was excited to check it out because I had wanted to go there for a while but it just never happened. My excitement was confirmed when I saw this outside...
Trader Joe's was hopping. I did some laps around the smallish store while checking everything out and trying to find everything I was looking for. Two different employees stopped to help me out without me even asking and I got a free reusable grocery bag when I told the cashier it was my first time here. Tonight's dinner was Trader Joe's heat and eat falafel's.
We stuffed ours in some wheat pitas with some feta, hummus, tzatziki sauce, cucumber, tomato, and lettuce. I thought it was super delicious but Dave wasn't quite as excited about it. I think he would've preferred some gyro meat, but I'm glad he's always down to try new things, and I don't think he completely hated it. On a side note, I ate meatless today, yay.
My motivation continued with a trip to the gym last night after coaching. My friend Tami just got a membership to good old Planet Fitness and wanted me to show her the machines in the circuit.
1.75 mi walk/run on the treadmill - 22 minutes
Machines in the circuit plus step work in between - 35 minutes
Abductor and adductor machines - 5 minutes
Stretch - 5 minutes
I felt so great leaving the gym, I will definitely be going back tomorrow or Thursday night. Or maybe even both! Yeah we'll see about that one haha. Tonight is movie night, watching Easy A with the boyfriend. Goodnight!
Do you share my love for Trader Joe's?
