Hello, hello, hello!!! How’s everyone doing today?
This month, the lovely Jenn from Peas and Crayons decided that the theme for this month would be “Summer Staples,” which I love!
Who doesn’t enjoy all the yummy fresh food that is available during the summer months? It seems I just can’t get enough of my summer staples!
Let’s check out my eats from yesterday and see how I managed to fit in all the fresh foods!
7:30 – Sandwich thin “french toast” with a side of PB2 & tea
Yesterday morning, I woke up knowing I had a busy day ahead of me, so I wanted to make sure to kick it off with a good breakfast! I let this digest before heading to the gym for a killer spin class!
11:30 – Flatout wrap with green olive hummus (obsessed) and kale
After the gym, I rushed home to shower and grab this quick mini lunch before heading into my classroom! At the end of the year, I left my classroom in a sort of “end of the year” daze. Recently, I realized that I honestly have no idea what work still needs to be done in my room before my new class comes in September, so I wanted to get in and take a look!
I’ll be honest, going in gave me nervous butterflies in my stomach, but once I was in there, those nerves turned to excitement! I managed to get a lot of work done, and I’m left feeling much better about accomplishing everything by September.
4:30 – Spinach protein smoothie
By the time I got home, I was starving. My stomach needed something, and it needed something fast.
Into the blender:
- 2 scoops Tera’s Organic Whey Blueberry Protein powder
- 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 TBSP Chia seeds
- 2 TBSP PB2
- 1 packet Truvia
- a whole lot of frozen spinach
7:30 – Salmon and roasted brussel sprouts
This dinner has definitely become a summer staple for me. It’s so easy, healthy, and delicious!
After dinner, once Bobby and I finished cleaning up the kitchen… Bobby innocently mentioned that it seemed like the perfect night to go on a walk and grab some frozen yogurt.
Well, that was all it took. My flip-flops were on and my bag was over my shoulder in two seconds flat.
Why is it that the very mention of frozen yogurt (and wine, might I add) sends me into a frenzy? Once it’s in my mind, I need it!
Thanks a lot, Bobby.
8:30 – Nonfat Vanilla frozen yogurt with crushed graham cracker, chocolate sprinkles, and a few chocolate covered pretzels thrown on there for good measure.
Bobby was right, it was the perfect ending to a hot summer day!
Is there anyone else who find it hard to suppress a thought of a “treat” once it enters your mind?
What are your favorite frozen yogurt or ice cream toppings?
What would you consider the best summer treat to end the day with?
