Busy day!

I started off my busy day today with a 2.5 mile run which was followed immediately by chugging a 36 oz bottle of water.  The run felt good today, I was proud of myself :)

Onto the eats!

Breakfast: An amazing and beautiful Blueberry Muffin Smoothie!  It tasted just like a blueberry muffin and was quite hearty!  The only changes I made was I only used 2/3 cup of blueberries and didn't add the extra milk to thin it.

Midmorning Snack: Handful of cherries and some cantaloupe.

Lunch: Brown rice with roasted cauliflower, roasted chickpeas and sun-dried tomatoes.  Served with a yummy peach.

Afternoon Snack: Iced coffee and a handful of raw cashews.

Dinner: Chopped salad.  I added the other half of my avocado right before I ate it so it wouldn't turn brown between the time I made the salad and when I ate it.

Yummy day!!


  1. The smoothie sounds great! I like mine thick too. I guess I should invest in some chia seeds too, huh? It's been a while since I've bought or had oats since I'm more into smoothies or fruit but I should have some around for things like this or overnight oats!

  2. It was REALLY good! I also added cinnamon to it which gives it even more of a muffiny flavor. I love oats because it is the only carby breakfast I can really have since I can't have gluten and I need something substantial after I work out. I've posted tons of bowls of oatmeal if you need inspiration! ;)

  3. Wow! Another gorgeous lunch bowl. Never thought of Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Roasted Cauliflower together. Excellent idea.

  4. Thanks! It was one of my favorite bowls I've made so far, the combination was so good! The roasted chickpeas were really yummy in there too and I used a lot of pepper, garlic and paprika to roast them so it had a little kick. I definitely recommend trying it!!
