Good morning from the Northern Coast of California!
I just couldn’t wait to share with you the tasty post workout meal I had yesterday! It tasted more like dessert than anything else…Yum!!
In the bowl went 3/4 cup of non-fat plain greek yogurt with a dab of honey and a half scoop of vanilla protein powder. I also topped it with cinnamon and an apple crunch vitatop. Remember the ones I bought last week? While I’ve been dying to try out the new flavor of vitatop and I must say it did not disappoint me!
250 calories, 30g Protein & 8g fiber- can’t beat that!
As I mentioned yesterday, we had to hit the road again. We arrived late last night, after spending most of the day in the car.
At least it was an enjoyable one, the baby slept most of the time…
which makes for a very happy momma!
Since my seat is in the back with Mila nowadays, Bella gets to ride shotgun. I’m guessing by these photos, she loves it!
Two hours into the ride, I was hungry for a snack so I munched on some veggies and jalapeno greek yogurt dip, sooo good!!
Has anyone ever tried this dip? It’s crazy, addicting good! I love the spice and tanginess, it’s packed with. (I purchase mine from Costco – and use it as a dip or in place of mayo & mustard on my sandwiches and wraps)
Four hours into the drive with about 3 more hours to go, we decided to grab dinner on the road. We wanted something quick, fresh and fast so we stopped at Safeway to order sandwiches from their Signature Cafe. I ordered a chicken sandwich on 7 grain bread with mustard and all the veggies. It was tasty and did the job, but next time, I’ll have them toast the bread.
Close-up & almost gone!
Mila enjoyed her tofu and broccoli on the road too.
Before reaching home stretch, the hubs stopped to for gas and a few refreshments…
his choice for me – a Starbuck’s vanilla light double shot espresso drink. I only managed to drink half of it though, it was a little too sweet for me.
This morning I woke up and wanted to find out what kind of continental breakfast the hotel provided?
In a sea of donuts, muffins and bagels…I managed to make out with what I thought to be a pretty great breakfast! Coffee, steel oat bread, a banana and 2 hard boiled eggs with my Barney almond butter, I brought from home.
For lunch, I’m equipped with my turkey chili muffins and fruit, that I also brought from home.
Time to get in some exercise, I’ll let you know what I did next post.
Question: What’s a snack that you have, that tastes more like dessert??
