A day in Food Part II

So for breakfast, I had a banana topped with almond butter and cacao nibs. (no pic taken-just picture lots of  almond butter goodness topped with cacao nibs) 

I then went to M2M and my dear friend, Abby brought me a yummy superfood smoothie from Georgetown Market.
They are so good and are our favorite. Peaches, mango, banana, vegetable rice protein, spiriluna, etc

She also brought me a Larabar. These are great and only two ingredients. Dates and almonds. C loved it though and ate over half of mine!

I came home and had Trader Joe's egg white salad with pepperjack cheese and spinach in a brown rice, tapioca tortilla. I had baby carrots on the side (these are brand new so not liking how old they look!)

This is what I made for dinner...but not for us...for a dear friend whose little one has been in the hospital. It is organic, free range, vegetarian fed pesto chicken topped with parmesan and tomatoes. (tomatoes arent in season so they werent a vibrant red) It is sitting on homemade mashed potatoes with the peels on (most nutritious part) I served it with vibrant green organic broccoli. The smell permeated throughout the house and was amazing!  I am so making this for our fam next week.
This is what I had instead. My banana cacao creation
I washed it down with a superfood smoothie
Then we went to small group at Abby's and she surprised us with my favorite new dessert! Yummy almond butter, dark chocolate reese's...So easy and oh so good! I am making them tomorrow. She also made a vegan, brownie superfood creation that I had three of. They were made of dates, flax seeds and other great stuff
I washed it down with a giant water in preparation for tomorrow's Mini training!

So, how'd I do? I think I could've been a little low on veggies but good on the rest. Dates are an excellent source of fiber and carbohydrates so I am lovin that for my training.
How are you doing?

That's awesome! I wish I had more time ot prepare for shopping and making food like this. It's all I can do with working and feeding the boys right now.
Also, the boys are loving hte music on your page. They're dancing around!

That's awesome! Honestly, it is so easy Holly...of course you have two little ones. But I am working about 30 hrs a week, leading a bible study, have small group, attend M2M, attend BSF and working on a manuscript. I say all this to let you know that it can be done! If you need help planning out food, let me know. This was all on the fly..not really planned. I do email myself at the start of each week and start a list of what I want to buy that next week. I just update it throughout the week. That way, it doesnt really feel like a chore.

Oh my goodness, those reese's look so yummy! Do those fit in your diet, or are they horribly unhealthy? :-)
