Good Morning!

WIAW

(This is actually what I ate on Monday)

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

Thanks Jenn for hosting!

Breakfast:

I made a new version of the Microwave English Muffin today.  The Microwaveable English Muffin that I used to make like 5 times a week was awesome but I always had extra “bread” and I ended up throwing some of it away half of the time- how wasteful!

So today I just changed up some of the ingredients a little bit.  I used less almond flour and egg, but that’s about the only differences!

Paleo English Muffin

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons almond flour
1 egg white (the real thing)
pinch salt
1 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together into a bowl.  Pour batter into a separate bowl that is sprayed with non stick cooking spray.  Microwave for 90 seconds. Let cool before cutting. Toast if desired!

I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit.

This particular grapefruit is from straight from Florida and it was the best one I’ve ever had.  It was SO juicy and wasn’t too tart.

Veggie salad with avocado, topped with a fried egg. Strawberries on the side.

After crossfit I had dinner but I was too tired to make anything and this morning I woke up late- and this is serious, I got up at 6 am and was in the car by 6:15, what a record!  So the crockpot tenderloin for dinner, well that didn’t happen!

Dinner: 7:45  Subway

And a blueberry goodness!  What’s that you ask?!  Warm blueberries with a coconut butter drizzle!

The drizzle= 2 tbsp Nikki’s coconut butter + water + 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder.  Mix and microwave for about 30 seconds.

Drizzle on blueberries= Blueberry goodness!
