That’s exactly how work felt today. Not because of the work per say, but because of the lack of air conditioning. I was sweatin’ like a pig :(! And to top it off, I came across my first horrendous dry cleaning order! Lets just say that when I opened up the laundry bag I could tell there was something a little brown in those pants. Absolutely disgusting!!!! I never knew working at a dry cleaner so could be so frightening. Thank god we have gloves available for us to use when handling the clothes and tons of hand sanitizer around. Sorry bringing such a sickening topic to the blog…but I had to share with someone, it was that horrific!
Now on to some cleaner topics:
B-fast this morning was protein packed….just the way I like it!
I assembled an open faced egg sandwich (spread with tomato paste, salsa, and tomato slices) with spinach and some pumpkin-y cottage cheese (1% cottage cheese mixed with pumpkin, cinnamon, and topped with plump raisins).
So good…..but of course I needed a little fruit action! Pumello time!
Talk about protection.
All my meals today were delicious…..but today’s snacks were something to rave about!
First let me share with you a new smoothie creation I made today:
I call it the Poppin’ Popeye!
-1.5 cups baby spinach
-1/4-1/2 cup milk (I used skim but almond would work to)
-1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
-3/4 cup frozen raspberries
-1/4 cup raw cashews (so creamy and nutty in this)
-2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used the packet I got from Betty Lou’s…..very impressive and loaded with vitamins)
-ice to taste depending on how cold you like your smoothies (I used a ton)
Blend everything together and enjoy! I ate mine with some cereal/granola on top with a drizzle of Artisana coconut butter
This baby has 64 grams of protein in the whole recipe! Craziness! So this could probably be for two people…..I shared with my momma
For work I packed up another winner:
Blueberry Siggis (which is slowly becoming one of my favorites…its tartness is really growing on me!) with grains (meandgoji cereal, Kamut puffs, Ezekiel nuggets, and Galaxy Granola)
and some fresh veg with Sweet Roasted Red Pepper humus<- my fav flava!
Lots of good eats today and more to come in the next few days since I received an awesome kitchen gadget from Tofu Xpress! More on that to come.
I’m watching Pretty Little Liars and it rocks! So addicting.
