WIAW #3: Lean and Green

I’m happy to bring you yet another week of WIAW on myinnershakti!  There’s a quiz at the end so pay attention. Smile

Breakfast

WIAW#3 004

Chocolate + PB + Banana Protein Green Smoothie

Into the blender went:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop Sun Warrior chocolate protein powder
  • 1 cup of skim milk
  • 1 spoon PB
  • 1 large handful of spinach

Lunch

It’s Wednesday, so y’all know what that means…free food from work (and no pictures to share). 

I had a 1.27 lb. salad!  It included spinach, cherry tomatoes, olives, green and red bell peppers, a boiled egg, carrots, celery, feta cheese, kidney beans, and balsamic dressing.  It was a MONSTER!  I also had a small scoop of pasta salad on the side – gotta have me some carbs!

Snack

Surprisingly, that monster of a salad left me slightly hungry around 3:30, so I took a walk down the hall to our “convenient store” to find myself a snack.  I ended up buying this…

It doesn’t have the best nutritional stats, but it did keep me satisfied until dinnertime (7:45).  If I remember correctly, each bar has 6 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein…ok for emergencies.

Dinner

Oh yes I did.  I had yet another salad for dinner!  This one was made with spinach, cannellini beans, tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and Annie’s Goddess dressing.  Delicious and satisfying!

Now, y’all know that when I really love something, I have to blog about it and spread the word. Take my word and go buy Annie’s Goddess dressing…TRUST ME.  It’s so incredibly delicious, and the flavor is almost exotic – a mix of Greek and Asian.  Whatever it is, it’s YUM!  It also makes a great sandwich spread.

Side note: This is a full fat dressing, but because the flavor is so strong and concentrated, you don’t need too much. 

TRUST.ME!

Quiz time!

And the question is…what’s the theme behind most of my meals today?

If you guessed spinach, you are correct!  Ding, ding, ding!

Smile

Have a great night, y’all!
