I decided on a peanut butter and banana protein smoothie and man was it good! I combined the following ingredients in a blender for about 30 seconds and the end result was a thick fluffy mixture that reminded me of a milkshake.
Peanut Butter & Banana Protein Smoothie
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp PB2
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
I foresee many more smoothies in the future to help combat this Texas heat. It hit the spot and helped tide me over until my next meal.
Lately my meals at lunch and dinner have consisted of chicken, chicken and more chicken.
I’ve been eating my chicken along side a bit of jasmine rice and veggies. I had an avocado that was on the verge of going bad so I ate ½ of it along side my lunch the other day for a punch of healthy fat. I’ve also been obsessed with lemonade crystal light lately – so good!
I also roasted a bunch of asparagus with some cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder freshly cracked black pepper and sea salt. I can’t wait for the price of asparagus to come down a bit so I can buy it more often.
A popular dinner theme in our house lately has been ‘make your own stir fry’ nights.
We usually buy a bunch of zucchini, bell peppers, onions and summer squash and chop them all up and put it all in one big freezer bag. We can pull out the amount we want throughout the week which makes for quickly made lunches and dinners.
For my stir fry I used a bit of our pre-chopped veggies and sautéed them in a bit of coconut oil and threw in a few freshly sliced jalapeños for some heat. I added in 4oz of cooked chicken, 1 tablespoon of gluten free teriyaki sauce and ¼ cup of cooked jasmine rice. I topped it all off with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of red pepper flakes because I love it extra spicy!
Yesterday, after my unexpectedly long stay at the DPS I was ready to eat my arm. I had originally planned on going home to grab lunch before running some more errands but I was starting to get light headed. I decided to stop by Panera Bread and grab my go-to salad.
I had to use an old picture of the Asian Sesame Chicken Salad because I literally inhaled it and a big piece of baguette as soon as it hit my table. It was delicious as always.
That more or less sums up what my meals have looked like recently. I’m going to try and switch it up a bit next week and I’ll be sure to report back anything noteworthy.
Have a wonderful morning!
