Happy Wednesday friends!! We made it half way through the week!
Today I am sharing what my typical day looks like. Since finding Truvani’s plant-based protein powder, my breakfasts have changed to a daily delicious morning smoothie. I LOVE it and it’s so easy first thing in the morning! But I am also including my other go-to breakfasts, as well as what I snack on and what I drink throughout the day.
So let’s go!
Option 1: My favorite coffee smoothie
I am loving starting my day with a smoothie and having so much fun playing with different smoothie add-ins and options! The other day I was missing coffee…which I haven’t had since November! My husband grinds the beans fresh every morning and the smell of fresh brewed coffee enveloped and consumed me! I decided to … Read More
Currently, I am in a vanilla latte smoothie kick! I am LOVING the recipe above and drink it every morning!
Option 2: Scrambled eggs with steamed veggies
Before I found Truvani’s clean protein powder, I was making a veggie bowl with scrambled eggs (and still do occasionally) or a veggie omelet. Both basically use the same veggies…it is just how I am wanting my eggs that day! 😉
For either one of these, I just grab some veggies that I like (zucchini, onion, bell pepper, broccoli, asparagus, whatever I’ve got!), chop it up, sauté it in organic avocado oil, and if I am scrambling eggs, after the veggies get a little soft, I crack two eggs in the mix and scramble it all together. If I want an omelet, I put the sautéed veggies in a bowl off to the side, scramble two eggs and pour into my well oiled pan, cook it for a minute, then add back in the veggies and press it into the wet egg, cook an additional minute or two until it isn’t sticking and a little brown, then flip it all (over the sink…just in case!), and cook for an additional couple of minutes. Then flop it over onto a plate and fold over. For both, I top with 1/2 sliced avocado and pinch of Himalayan sea salt and ground black pepper.
Morning Drink Mix
Alkalize and Mineralize
Currently I am out of my CBD 🙁 BUT I usually mix one scoop of Alkamind Daily Minerals with my CBD and fill up my big Starbucks cup…that no longer holds any Starbucks 😉
I am literally on a “subscribe and save” for Alkamind! Perfect because as soon as I start to run low, one just magically appears at my door! 😉
- WHAT ALKAMIND DOES – Eliminate acid reflux, better sleep, improve constipation, reduce sugar cravings, fast workout recovery and mental clarity.
- HOW IT DOES IT – 4 pure alkaline minerals plus organic lemon juice powder, 1:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium, most bioavailable minerals, chelated mg for highest levels of absorption and bioavailability, medical-grade minerals and fast acting powdered delivery system.
Fresh raw salad
Pretty self explanatory here 😉 I basically take a whole bunch of veggies that I love and chop them up! I use all organic – green leaf lettuce, purple carrot, bell pepper, celery, tomatoes, sprouted arugula, walnuts, avocado, hemp seeds, drizzle with olive oil, juice from 1/2 lemon, and a pinch of Himalayan salt.
Afternoon Drink Mix
Schisandra Berry + Ashwagandha
I totally forgot to snap a picture of this BUT I use that same big Starbucks cup and fill it to the top with water and a little ice, add 1/2 tsp of my Schisandra Berry powder (which is sold out!! BUT you can still get it here) and about 1/3 tsp ashwagandha plus juice from 1/2 lemon.
Benefits of Schisandra Berry:
- Liver Detoxification and Purification
- Increased Intracellular Glutathione Levels
- Anti-Aging at the Cellular Level
- Mental Clarity and Energy
- Improves Digestion
- Balances Hormones
- Boosts Immune System
Fruit + Almond Butter
My snack is pretty much the same every day. I love a crisp, organic green apple with a big tablespoon of organic almond butter. It is pretty much what I eat on the daily.
Sometimes if I need a little something sweeter, I will grab a couple of these.
Dinner changes daily! This is where I have the most fun with my meals. I love using Danielle Walker’s cookbooks and Minimalist Baker (you can read more about my favorites here) and pretty much cook dinner every night of the week, minus a couple of leftover nights.
If you know me, you know I LOVE lemon anything!! Lemon pies, lemon cupcakes, lemon bars, lemon anything! However, some of my favorite lemon recipes are loaded with cane sugar and dairy…which I cannot have because of my health issues (you can read about my health journey with Systemic Candida here). This microwavable lemon mug … Read More
This mug cake is one of my favorites for satiating that chocolate craving! I use tiger nut flour instead of almond flour for this recipe because of its natural sweet flavor and health benefits. Chufa, also known as tiger nuts or earth almonds, are not actually nuts! They are small edible tubers. They are about … Read More
Sometimes a girl just wants something sweet! I love making my lemon berry mug cake or my chocolate mug cake, but I also really love this snickerdoodle mug cake recipe, though I made a few substitutions, it was still really good!
One day a week (usually Wednesdays because that is the night my husband and I watch The Challenge…which is over now! *insert sad face* 😉 ), I indulge in a SmartSweets Sweet Fish. SmartSweets are free from sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners and added sugar plus they are plant-based!! They seriously taste so much better than my old fav fish! 😉
IF I am on my A-game, I prepare these drinks ahead of time and drink the Jamu Juice before I eat (or drink) breakfast and the refreshing Ginger Lemonade later in the morning or afternoon for a little pick-me-up. It is also perfect to take to the pool, beach, or lake as it is a natural hydrator and reduces bloat!
Well that’s it for my day! What do you love to eat for your main meals? Do you eat the same thing everyday or change it up? I’d love to hear! Share below!
See you all back here on Friday for my Friday Favorites: At-Home Workout Edition!
