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.

REGULAR CLASS

#1) Front Squats 5×2 @ 85%
Rest 1 Minute between Sets

#2) 3×8 Good mornings (Increase Weight Each Set)

#3) WOD:

50 Ab Mat Sit Ups then:

3 Rounds for Time:

10 Deadlifts 225,155
20 Wall Balls
30 Lateral Jumps Over Bar
Followed By:
50 Ab Mat Sit Ups

It took me 15 minutes to finish- It was a great workout!

Another Wildtree Meal coming at ya!

Dinner

Wildtree Italian Chicken Tenders

I put mine with 2 scrambled eggs, garlic and herb laughing cow cream cheese, tomatoes, and avocado.

Dessert was a piece of my protein oatmeal loaf with Protein Icing– this time Macadamia Nut flavor.

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?


Yesterday I had Overnight Oats for Breakfast:

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • cinnamon to taste

*Add a small amount of almond milk in the morning to get the desired thickness you want! (I don’t use yogurt in mine but you can if you want it thicker)

I ate them at work in a hurry so I could only snap one picture.

overnight oats

  • Topping:
  • Raisins
  • Honey Almond Flax Cereal
  • Almond slices
  • Any other topping you like- fruit etc.

Oatmeal  is a “Super food” and has many health benefits. I like to eat oatmeal with peanut butter because it fills me up for a 3-4 hours. It has lots of fiber and you can mix in lots of fun ingredients!

Snack time: A banana with peanut butter
