Today was a short 5 hour work day (yay!) followed by some cooking and then a quick trip to the gym for a quick 30 minutes of cardio on the arc trainer. Lots of yummy food today!
Cherry Chocolate green smoothie for breakfast. So delicious.
1 cup of strawberries for a late morning snack.
For lunch I finally got to eat my roasted potatoes. I feel like I'm being teased by Shen & Ingrid's beautiful roasted potatoes so I bought some fingerlings and roasted them up with some sea salt and served them with a big chopped salad. They were so delicious! I'm glad I finally made them.
After the gym I ate a banana with some almond butter. No pic, sorry.
For dinner I finally have something new to show you! I made 2 recipes out of Crazy Sexy Diet. At the top of the plate is the Teriyaki Tofu. I actually made one adjustment to it and it came out so good! I couldn't find pineapple juice so I decided to use the juice of one orange plus about 1.5 tbsp of the zest. It added such a bright, lovely flavor, I love this recipe! The cabbage salad is the Cabbage "Hemp" Salad from the book. The hemp is in quotes because it is really more of a cabbage sesame salad. I had the choice of spending $11 on hemp seeds or $0.12 on sesame seeds so I went for the sesame. I also used sesame oil instead of hemp oil. It is really delicious and a bit tangy thanks to some lemon juice. I also cut up a carrot with it.
I'm having kind of a hungry day and I have calories left so I'm going to make myself some air popped popcorn with sea salt a little later. Yum, perfect night time snack! You know what it looks like though :)
Happy weekend everyone!
