For breakfast I sautéed some diced red pepper and spinach in a bit of cooking spray, and I added egg whites (1pp) and thin cheddar (1pp) and served it on two sliced of light wheat toast (2pp). I also had a big bowl of watermelon and two large cups of coffee with sugar and half and half (2pp for the two cups).
You may have read here about how I am looking to upgrade my daily vitamins. I am trying out some upgraded vitamins by Shaklee. I love them, but I do not love the price. I am impressed with the quality and the science, but it turns out that quality is quite pricey! Is it worth it? The jury is still out on that. I’ll keep y’all posted.
The first couple of weeks I noticed absolutely zero difference in how I felt. Now, however, I am noticing my energy levels come up quite a bit (2.5 weeks in). Specifically, I feel more focused, well-rested, energized and productive. I am going to bed later too, and yet not feeling sleep deprived at all. I am giving it more time to make sure it is legit, and not a fluke or just my imagination.
I am still researching options for high quality, food-based vitamins. Anybody out there take multivitamins that they love?
Bonus points for the cute fur baby in the background.
The middle part of my day consisted of grazing. I was pretty busy at work, so I found myself eating a little along. I had a protein shake, made with Tera’s Whey dark chocolate (3pp), frozen strawberries, frozen banana and almond milk (1pp). It was thicker than I meant to make, but it reminded me of a chocolate covered strawberry. YUM!
I am still using my Nutri Bullet on an almost daily basis.
A couple of hours later I started to get hungry again, but I had a conference call for work, so I grabbed a single serving premade chicken salad (4pp) and three wasa crackers (1pp). This chicken salad shows up a lot in my WIAW posts and What I Ate Videos. I get them at Costco, FYI.
And then I had some iced coffee (1pp) and a dove dark chocolate (1pp)…recycled picture.
A little while later I decided to whip up a little salad with spinach, diced red peppers, tomatoes from the garden and feta cheese (1pp) all topped with my homemade balsamic vinaigrette (1pp).
For dinner we had chicken (3pp), roasted potatoes (3pp), roasted carrots (1pp for the olive oil), lima beans (2pp). The toast in the picture was split with my son (2pp for my part).
A Word on Commenting
I have installed Disqus commenting plugin to (hopefully) make commenting a little bit more intuitive and convenient for my readers. Once you set up an account with them, you can comment on any blog that uses this platform without having to sign in. Hopefully this helps! Leave me some comment love, y’all! 🙂
A big thanks to Jen over at Peas and Crayons for hosting this weekly link-up party.
