Yesterday (the day after Christmas) was definitely a relaxing day. I’ve been hearing that consensus from lots of people. I definitely wanted to make sure I didn’t succumb to all of the holiday leftovers, especially since I had the time to make my own food. The past few days was a huge sugar binge which resulted in tiredness and headaches. Time to get back to normal.
For breakfast I ate an egg white omelet with tomatoes, spring mix, and feta, along with an orange. I let myself digest for about 1.5-2 hours and then went for a run in the cold. My post-workout snack (lunch) was some fat free greek Oikos yogurt.
Green tea on the side to warm me up.
I topped the yogurt with blueberries, canned pineapple, Go Lean Crunch (Kashi cereal), Vanilla Extract (stirred in) and Cinnamon.
I don’t love nonfat greek yogurt, but I loved eating this.
For dinner I wanted to incorporate roasted veggies (my favorite).
Butternut Squash & Orange Cauliflower
Never-ending tray of Asparagus
While these cooked I prepared a salad and snacked on dried papaya.
I love this stuff, the texture is addicting.
Spring mix with chopped sharp chedder cheese & homemade dressing.
It would’ve been delicious just like this.
But alas, I needed more protein so I added chopped chicken and some veg.
That’s a large plate, people. So yum.
Later on I had more papaya, piece of dark chocolate, hummus & crackers, and nuts. I was starving after not eating any cookies, candy, etc. all day.
I should share a few more photos…
Sedgey was begging for food in the kitchen:
Emmy hopped in a box:
Izzy hopped out when my mom was too close for comfort:
K there are some of my pets (minus the other cat, Oscar).
I have too much fun with my new camera nowadays. Any cute moment, I’m there in a flash! Now I feel like I should update my blog a bit and make it less…bloggy and more websitey. Eventually…
K and as for today, it’s time for brekky.
