First of all thanks for those who encouraged me about my fitness level, really appreciate it. It’s good to have other’s point of view.
Anyway, this morning was Yoga X and though I wasn’t at my best, I still sweat A LOT, especially for the first 46 minutes.
After showered, refueled with this super thick oatmeal with homemade almond milk, topped with yogurt, pb and a banana.
Cut up fruits for my afternoon snacks
I brought 2 slices of Rudi’s Organic Bakery Honey Sweet Whole Wheat Bread, and a cup of low fat plain yogurt for my second breakfast at work, but didn’t happen. Instead, I ate 1 slice for my late morning without any spread and it was good! Sometimes I enjoy eating a toast without any jam, butter or pb without toasting it. A good bread will taste good even by itself.
On the way home, I had to stop by Costco to get “girls needs” (hint for monthly stuff) and also picked up some other stuff: frozen edamame and strawberries. I start to get tired of only having orange and peach with unripe papaya. I need some more colorful fruits in my plate!
Got home and I got another surprise!
GNU foods is generous enough to let me sample their seven flavors (Thanks Robyn!) And to top it off, they sent me 2 bars of each flavor! I took a look at their nutritional info and these bars have 12 g fiber serving and only 130-140 calories! That’s so good and we all know we always need a lot of fibers in our diet, right? I can’t wait to sample these and review them!
Also I got a sample from Clif’s newest bar, Clif Crunch Granola Bar. This is one of the 4 flavors, Chocolate Chip. The other three flavors are: Honey Oat, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Peanut Butter.
I wish I can sample the other three but at least I can sample one of them right? Better than nothing.
Dinner was almost raw and vegan style, if I didn’t have 2 bowls of this veggie in chicken broth soup..haha.
Sorry to disappoint vegans/vegetarians, but I have no intention to limit my food choices. I feel I am fortunate enough that I don’t have any food allergies/intolerant like some people. However, that doesn’t mean I will indulge all kinds of meats here and there. I am still conscious enough to make healthy food choices.
So here’s my vegan food part:
Tomorrow is already Wednesday and this weekend will be a long weekend. Got plans for it? We have NO plans, except we might get that couch or the bar stools that we saw last time. Also I might want to try making Averie’s “Spicy Doritos” Cheezy Dip this coming weekend now that I got my nutritional yeast.
