What a Great Day to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day!!
I know my dogs love it!
It’s always a good day to celebrate peanut butter! Here are some awesome recipes that I have either come up with or borrowed from others and LOVE!
Peanut Butter Cookie For One– (From Tina)
Wednesday was another 10 hour day at work…So on the way to work I had “oatmeal breakfast parfait“ in an almost empty almond butter jar 🙂 Yes, I know I eat and drive way too much!
Drizzle your protein mixture on top: Protein powder mixed with water to form a thin pudding like texture.
This is one of my favorite breakfasts so far!
My new Wildtree Products are my favorite to cook with! I can make so many new foodie items with them! I should be a rep 🙂 All of the products are organic and they don’t have any of that added crap!
Snack #1– Fitmixer vanilla protein + PB2
For lunch I packed a big veggie salad with a little sprinkle of feta cheese- what was left in the fridge… I made some dressing which was a mixture of pesto grapeseed oil and Pesto that I made on Monday night.
I also had some talapia or as my mother in law would call it – “talap”
So of course I walk into the conference room at work and this wonderful looking cake stares me in the face!
No I didn’t cheat! Still no sweets for this girl, and I am feeling great! I will beat this 30 day challenge!
Anyway…… while my husband was cooking up a storm in the kitchen, I made some roasted sweet potatoes while the oven was on.
So that was my snack: sweet potatoes with almond butter!
I also had a greek yogurt- I was starving!
After work I had to get my WORKOUT on!!
So I headed to crossfit. I was actually pretty excited for the workout. I usually look ahead online to see what the WOD is and If I don’t feel like going, I will do my own thing.
#1) Front Squats 5×2 @ 85%
Rest 1 Minute between Sets
#2) 3×8 Good mornings (Increase Weight Each Set)
50 Ab Mat Sit Ups then:
3 Rounds for Time:
10 Deadlifts 225,155
20 Wall Balls
30 Lateral Jumps Over Bar
50 Ab Mat Sit Ups
It took me 15 minutes to finish- It was a great workout!
Another Wildtree Meal coming at ya!
Wildtree Italian Chicken Tenders
I put mine with 2 scrambled eggs, garlic and herb laughing cow cream cheese, tomatoes, and avocado.
The only difference between this icing and the honey pecan pie protein icing is the flavor of coconut butter that I used! Lots of protein in this meal: about 20 grams!
Which reminds me I need to hit up Nikki’s store online and buy some more 🙂 These coconut butters only have 3 grams of sugar in 2 tbsp!
I think this is becoming my favorite breakfast, snack, snack, and snack again 🙂
Have you tried PB2? – I’m going to be experimenting with that also!
When you eat avocado, do you eat half eat or just down the whole thing?
What is your favorite peanut butter treat?
Well pancakes won, and I am glad they did!
Easy Protein Pancakes
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2 egg whites
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp almond flour
Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.
Add water in small amounts until batter is the consistency you want.
I topped mine with a little bit of Nikki’s coconut butter- honey pecan flavor (prob 1/2 tbsp)
Crunchy Almond Butter
Any kind of berries you want
** Put almond butter between pancakes so it melts and makes like a pancake sandwich 🙂
Nutritional Info for 2 pancakes (approximates fruit and toppings included)
After breakfast I went to the gym. I originally planned on doing triceps but they were sore from crossfit on Saturday (prob from the barbel roll out) so I just did a short workout off of the top of my head when I got there!
I had lots to do so I did this workout in about 35-40 min.
I got to spend the day with my two good friends Ashlee and Miranda. Our lunch turned into like a 3 hour chat session. What can I say, It’s good to be around your girlfriends 🙂
For dinner I quickly whipped up a microwaveable English muffin and had a toasted turkey, egg, and cheese sandwich!
Laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese makes everything better!
Nothing to crazy for dinner since I had people coming over for my wildtree party.
