Isn’t it ironic?

This morning I got up wanting to knock out 4 miles outside because the weather has been gorgeous and running outside > running on the treadmill. On mile 1.5 this song came on:

and what do you know? It started pouring rain. Everytime I see people running in the rain I think they are crazy. Today I was one.

Attractive, I know.

To get that image out of your head I’ll share with you yesterday’s outfit.

Whew, much better! I purchased everything on sale for a total of $50 at J. Crew…score.

Yesterday’s breakfast was a warm one. I toasted 2 Van’s WafflesΒ and made my own peanut butter spread to top it off with.

Anyone still own Peanut Flour?? Try this.

1 tsp of Peanut Butter (I used White Chocolate Wonderful) 1 TBSP of Peanut Four (Trader Joe’s) and 1 1/2 TBSP of Chocolate Almond Milk.

Mix it to get more peanut butter with all of the taste and none (ok, less) of the calories.

Spread your waffles with your beautiful creation

Top with an abundance of fruit. Enjoy πŸ˜‰

This surprisingly kept me full for hours. I didn’t eat lunch til 2:30! I have gotten a little more comfortable with my chef’s at work and now I request my own meals instead of ordering off the menu.

Is that bratty? Oh well, I’m a healthy brat. I had them saute up some fresh veggies (no butter) and add it to a tiny bit of whole wheat pasta and some chickpeas with a ladle of marinara sauce. I couldn’t even finish so i still have half saved for today. I wont bother them with my brattiness πŸ˜‰

For dinner we had something I made 2 weeks ago and stuck in the freezer. Mama Pea’s Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna.

When Adam came home and asked what was for dinner I told him and he said I neeeeed meat I’ll never be full.

One piece and he was “stuffed” and it was “realllly good” Vegan Meals/Alyssa 1 – Adam 0.

Oh before I forget the cake batter protein that I use is Muscle Milk Light. It’s actually on sale right now on this website. I add it to Oatmeal, Shakes and even cookies πŸ™‚

Time to get ready for work. For today’s Thirsty Thursday I highly suggest one of these.

QUESTIONS: What is your favorite type of protein? What are you drinking on this Thirsty Thursday?

  1. i’ll have to try this! i have tried so many brands between working at the gym in college and Chris! Oh Yeah! brand has always been my favorite, but now that MML has cake batter you know I’ll be picking this up!

  2. Congrats, Alyssa! You won the blog birthday giveaway:-)

    Send me your address and I’ll mail the goodies to you!

  3. Ummmm…..that appears to be a NY Giants t-shirt….???!!!

  4. That lasagna looks awesome. And sorry about the rain. I think rain runners are crazy, but one of my good buddies in college loved to run in the rain. She’s an odd one. πŸ™‚

  5. That whole outfit for 50$…I am SO jealous!! I can never seem to find good sale items at JCrew!!
    I made that same zucchini quinoa lasagna about 2 weeks ago and LOVED it..I agree it was super filling!

  6. Love the outfit! Sometimes I find the best deals at J.Crew! πŸ™‚

    My favorite way to get protein in is with greek yogurt. I’m obsessed. I could eat it everyday…wait…I do. πŸ™‚

    There’s something so fun about running in the rain, especially in hot Florida!

  7. I might need to make that lasagna because I can’t seem to convince my bf that a meal that is 99% meat is not the only kind of meal that is tasty and fills him up!

  8. I still need to track down peanut flour. I have yet to try it!

    and I love me some J. Crew and that ENTIRE outfit. gimme.

  9. Fave protein? Tofu! Only the really firm kind (twss). Thirsty Thursday – a bottle of Jack? I kid, I kid…water and coffee πŸ˜‰

  10. I love you but I hate that shirt.
    But mostly I love you.

  11. I LOVE your outfit! And what a steal!
    My favourite type of protein…haha I’m a straight up meat girl so I’m going to say: Lobster, filet mignon/really good steak, and jumbo succulent prawns! Mmm!

  12. I love eating fish although I recently went through a phase where it totally grossed me out. Go figure!

    Cute ouftit. You look fabulous!

  13. I want to try peanut flour but can’t find it! i’m sure its in whole foods somewhere. love your outfit!

  14. My fave protein is salmon because it’s so moist and delicious!!! πŸ™‚ Nut butters are my #2.

  15. Wow that is a J Crew score! Love that store. I haven’t had Vans waffles in a while- I kinda switched over to Kashi but those look real good!

  16. I actually want to run in the rain! (Not for a long distance, of course…. blisters….) But I’ve actually really wanted to do that, haha. πŸ™‚ Your outfit is beautiful!

  17. My fave proteins are Greek yogurt and nuts! Tonight I’m having some cocktails, not sure what exactly, but I’m leaning towards beerage πŸ™‚

  18. Running in the rain can be fun… as long as it’s not too cold! I feel a bit more motivated and bad ass haha πŸ™‚
    Favorite protein- fish, chicken, greek yogurt… I can’t choose just one!

  19. I just tried Van’s waffles and I really like them! Pretty good, especially for being on sale πŸ™‚

    My favorite protein is Greek yogurt by far! I’ve been out for a while, but since I did a long run today I made sure to get a lot of protein, and I think I did a good job πŸ™‚ I still have a tiny bit of peanut flour left- that stuff is crazy high in protein!

  20. Nice scores at J Crew! That is a really cute outfit!
