Halloween has always been one of those holidays that I could take or leave. As a kid, I loved dressing up and getting candy, but as an adult, I find it more of a pain. I know I know, I’m so cynical. Where is my Halloween spirit?
This morning was one of those rare times when I couldn’t decide on a breakfast. I frequent between 3 options during the work week…cereal, yogurt/fruit, or oatmeal. This morning, the yogurt won.
This bowl contained Chobani, 1/2 a Banana, Raspberries, Blackberries, 1/4 C Dry Muesli, Granola, a touch of muffin crumble, Sunflower Nut Butter.
Much like my life, these bowls are usually complicated but full of love. I want a little of everything but not too much of one thing. Does anyone else find self fulfillment in their breakfasts? Just me…okay then.
Moving right along…
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to get as much healthy fats as I possibly can these days. As soon as my doctor told me I need to increase my body fat in order to get on a normal cycle, I took this as a challenge.
2 Eggs, Spinach, Goat Cheese, Avocado and Smoked Salmon
I don’t think I could possibly get any more healthy fats into this meal. Go big or go home right!
I kept the sides simple with some greens and a slice of whole grain toast.
After lunch and work, I headed to the gym to meet my trainer for another total body strength workout. I’m really enjoying these sessions as it’s teaching me to use my muscles in ways that I never have. We focused on lower body today and ended with my favorite…pushups! (she says sarcastically)
I rounded out my workout by practicing the latest release of my RPM. We launch the new one tomorrow so I needed to get it down before I teach it.
I got home just in time to put together dinner.
This mexican inspired bowl was a delicious mix of southwest veggies (zucchini, squash, and broccoli) with black beans, seasoned tofu and served on a bed of spinach and brown rice with quinoa.
Kind of like Chipotle only customized a bit more to my liking.
