I woke up early today and was at the gym by 7:45 am. I got in 45 minutes of cardio then came home, took a quick shower, made my breakfast and finished up my boss' birthday cake. Today was his birthday and I always make the cake for an office birthday (except mine ha!) and I had such a cute idea for his! Check it out!
It's a sandwich birthday cake! I made the cake and frosting last night and cut up the strawberries. All I had to do this morning was put it altogether. Prepping everything ahead made all the difference because I knew I would be tight on time.
I decorated it to look like a cream cheese and strawberry sandwich. The cake is Isa's vanilla cake recipe from VCTOTW in the sandwich bread mold and baked for about 55 minutes. The frosting is the basic vanilla frosting from VCTOTW and the fresh strawberries were gorgeous and super sweet. I didn't partake in the cake because it obviously wasn't gluten free but it was definitely a big hit!
So now that you saw what I didn't get to eat, let's check out what I did eat :)
Breakfast was another sludgy looking green smoothie. This one had a small frozen banana, the rest of the strawberries from the cake (about 7?), some Vega chocolate protein powder, a cup of almond milk and a big ol' handful of fresh spinach. It was really good but I almost regret using the strawberries in there because they were so sweet and delicious and fresh but they got lost in the smoothie. Oh well, you live and learn.
I was starving when I got home from work so I made some avocado toast and cut up a HUGE carrot. It was so good.
After lunch I snacked on two stuffed grape leaves and a tbsp of hummus. Sorry no pic!
I went for close ups of my dinner :)
Small chopped salad.
Some veggie soup...from a can unfortunately but sometimes convenience wins. It was still good though!
Hope you had a great Saturday! I'm so tired from the craziness from this morning, I'm definitely looking forward to having tomorrow off! Enjoy your night!
