BLT love

6 Jul

Getting back into work mode after 4 days off wasn’t easy, but some tasty food sure helped.

Sliced banana topped with peanut butter and granola.

And a coffee with almond milk. In a Christmas mug. What?

Lunch was a salad and some fruit.

My salad was made up of spinach, kale, tomato, green pepper, almond slivers, and a veggie burger (Dr. Praeger’s), all topped with Annie’s Goddess Dressing.

The apple slices and grapes were seriously crisp and juicy!

When I finished with work for the day I took my booty to the gym for an hour long cardio kickboxing class. A nice, sweaty, hard workout. Just what I was looking for.

For dinner I made a BLT! I used this for the bacon-

The ingredient list could be better, but hey, sometimes a girl needs some bacon. I used this for the mayo-

And I used spinach instead of lettuce. Close enough.

Ugh. So good.

Five minutes after finishing, I made another one. I just couldn’t get enough.

No Pre-Rinsing Needed

20 Jun

Lunch today was super fancy – leftovers!

I had leftover fajita veggies from dinner last night, so I stuffed them in a tortilla along with spinach and tomatoes and called it lunch. I also had some leftover pineapple on the side.

As I was putting my lunch dishes in the dishwasher, Maddux helped by pre-rinsing everything for me.

He pretty much climbed inside the dishwasher.

After work I took him to the vet for a quick checkup just to make sure he’s healing well from his surgery. Everything was A-OK!

I dropped him back off at home and walked to the gym for an hour long Muscle Max class. It felt good to do some lifting since I wasn’t able to make it to a Muscle Max class last week.

When I got home from the gym, I threw together a quick salad. The best part?

Dr. Praeger’s are my absolute favorite veggie burgers. They not only taste fantastic, but the ingredient list couldn’t be better. “Ingredients: Carrots, Onions, String Beans, Oat Bran, Soybeans, Zucchini, Peas, Broccoli, Corn, Soy Flakes, Spinach, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Red Peppers, Arrowroot, Corn Starch, Garlic, Corn Meal, Salt, Parsley, Black Pepper

My salad consisted of kale, spinach, broccoli slaw, tomatoes, slivered almonds, the last of the pineapple, and the veggie burger.

I topped it with Annie’s Lite Goddess Dressing. Random combo, but it worked.

Bedtime already?
