After a long weekend, I got to sleep in yesterday, woo hoo! Instead of waking up at 5:30, I got to sleep until 8:30! I didn’t have to go to work until 12, so I lounged around the house a little bit and played with the dogs. Then came breakfast.
Breakfast: Around 9:30 ish
I could NOT decide If I wanted over easy eggs with toast, protein pancakes, fit french toast, oatmeal, or scrambled eggs. Even though it’s been hot out I’ve been craving oatmeal. I guess I just went too long without it. Lately I’ve been putting a scoop of peanut butter in my oats, which is fantastic, but I was craving apricot preserves yesterday.
So breakfast was a combo of things: Protein Oats with sugar free Apricot Preserves (I’m not a strawberry or grape or anything like that fan) with scrambled eggs.
Oats: 1 packet plain oatmeal, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, 2 egg whites, water, 1 stevia packet = fluffiest oatmeal ever!
2 eggs from 2 egg whites
Then I had some coffee on my way to work which is totally weird and random because I usually HATE coffee! I like it this morning though, a little cream and stevia and I was good to go. I don’t know why I was so tired because I got to sleep in a little bit. I guess that just means I can’t handle the party lifestyle of boating and drinking all weekend, I’m officially old.
Lunch: Around 1:45
I had leftovers from Monday nights dinner. In the mix; Ground turkey, sausage, turkey bacon, scrambled egg, green beans, and spinach. Also half of a banana.
I had a Protein shake after my crossfit workout at 5:30, also LOTS of water! You must refuel with protein people.
Dinner: Around 7 ish
NY Strip Steak: seasoned with a tiny bit of sea salt and pepper, Mrs. Dash, and garlic powder
Asparagus (soooo easy, steam in the bag!) I added salt and pepper, garlic, and a splash of lemon juice, YUM!
Also some fresh veggies on the side! I got some cucumbers from the farmers market and they were lovely 🙂
Vanilla Protein Mug Muffin with 1 tbsp chunky peanut butter

- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 stevia packet
Microwave for 70 seconds- you don’t want it too dry 🙂
What are you eating lately? Love or hate stevia? I don’t taste the bitterness people talk about.
