It’s time for another WIAW!
Thanks Jenn for hosting once again!
When I woke up yesterday I was really in the mood for my Berry protein Loaf, but I didn’t feel like baking, boo! So while I decided what I wanted to really eat I munched on 2 of these Belvita biscuits. The blueberry is my favorite 🙂
And then I figured I really need some protein in me before I go to Crossfit! So I whipped up one egg and one egg white real quick. Then I figured why not throw it onto an English Muffin, so I made my Paleo English Muffin. Topped it with some Apricot Jam, and I was good to go!
The edges got a little crispy in the toaster, but it was still so tasty. I also needed some fruit so I ate some strawberries that I cut up the night before. That’s what food prepping is for!
This is also going to be a What I worked out Wednesday just fyi!
Crossfit was BRUTAL yesterday. I have learned to not underestimate a workout that LOOKS EASY, because most likely it will NOT BE EASY.
I wanted to cry several times during the WOD- I am such a baby.
We worked on Snatch Grip Deadlifts First.
I always have to take my shoes off because I don’t have crossfit shoes yet.
25 Goblet Squats – 35# Kettlebell
20 Walking Kettlebell Swings
12 Abmat Situps
I did it in 12:15.
After that BRUTAL workout, I refueled with my Beverly International Protein Shake- Vanilla
I started with a pear
Then a Tuna Patty. This time the ingredients were slightly different.
- 1 Can of Tuna
- 1 Egg White
- Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub (this made all the difference in the world) You can use any burger/steak seasoning you like
- Garlic powder
- 3 tbsp Oats
- 2 Tbsp Almond Flour
Mix all ingredients together and form into patties. Cook on stove top for about 3-5 minutes on each side.
Also a veggie salad with some cottage cheese.
Dressing: Balsamic, Wildtree grapeseed oil, Lime juice
While I was out I picked up some almonds that were on sale. I was so happy! These things are NEVER on sale.
I snacked on some of these in the afternoon. They have barely any sugar in them which is awesome.
For some reason I was craving a pop, and I usually don’t drink pop at all so I had a Zevia. These are sweetened with stevia and only have 5 carbs per can.
I really need to drink more water so I will be sure to have some with dinner and the rest of the evening!
I also made some of these little muffins for breakfast tommorrow, and I ate one after I made them too, duh.
Paleo Pumpkin Banana Muffins
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt (or a good pinch)
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup pumpkin
- 1 mashed banana
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp stevia
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into sprayed muffin tins and top with chopped almonds. I used cinnamon almonds 🙂 You could also use walnuts or pecans. Bake for 25 minutes.
Feel Free to use more or less honey/stevia. You can sweeten these however you like. You could even try it with unsweetened applesauce.

Sara’s Healthy Apple Crisp

- apple pie spice
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- 1 packet stevia
- optional: raisins, nuts
- 1 tbsp smart balance butter

Combine all ingredients and separate into 3 ramekins. Bake for 30 minutes. Towards the end of baking add a pat of butter on top of each dessert.
I didn’t measure the spices but you can Add more cinnamon and/or brown sugar if desired.
The boys topped theirs with ice cream, and I topped mine with 1 tbsp lite cool whip. 1 tbsp granola, and Protein cookie dough crumble.
What a day! I hope yours was as productive as mine. Now I am tired. Good night!
