Flexitarian

What is a flexitarian you might ask? My definition is someone who will eat vegan, vegetarian and occasionally eat meat. That’s exactly what I do. I’m flexible – I will eat it all!! 🙂 Sometimes I have cereal and salads all day, sometimes I’ll have a bacon egg and cheese bagel for breakfast and steak for dinner – I eat what I want.

Yesterday I had a vegetarian (almost vegan) kind of day which means I had NO meat and very minimal dairy.

Breakfast (the only time i had dairy):

VitaMuffin sugar-free chocolate top w/ 0% plain greek yogurt, 1/2 a banana and raisin almond Love Grown granola.

Lunch:

Organic quinoa, meatless meatballs, organic marinara sauce (the meatballs are still frozen in this picture)

Snack:

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and tortilla chips

Dinner:

Cereal combo: Kashi honey almond go lean crunch, fiber one 80 calorie squares and unsweetened almond milk

Dessert:

Dairy-free ice cream sandwich by Tofutti *very aware i need a manicure*

To be honest, when I eat this way i feel 100x better than if I had chicken or meat during the day – but sometimes my body craves bacon so that’s what it gets! The only thing I would really miss if I did go full vegetarian would be pork.. So for now, this works for me. Maybe one day I’ll go balls to the wall full on veg-head. Until then expect to see a variety of meals!

On my to do list: Find the perfect birthday dress & pack for a weekend getaway – oh, and work.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

QUESTIONS: Do you ever eat full vegetarian meals all day? If you’re vegetarian do you eat vegan meals sometimes?

Breakfast lover

After yesterday’s indulgent afternoon, I needed a GOOD sweat. I headed to a gym with Adam around here because they offered us a free pass. When we got there a bootcamp class had just started so I headed in while Adam went to do his meathead stuff 😉

I walk in and the instructor tells me to grab some weights. I grab 7 pounders (I’ll admit I have weak arms) and she glares at me and says in her russian accent “what you gonna do with those” and attempts to hand me 15 pounders. I politely declined and she continued to glare me down. I kept thinking to myself that i should probably make a run for it because the instructor clearly already had it in for me.

When it was time to run in the resistance bands guess who wanted to be my partner?? The instructor.

(p.s. that’s not us)

Let’s just end this horrific story by telling you that I felt like I was going to vomit when I left. I also was forced to run a mile home in the pouring rain after being tortured at boot camp class. Lovely.

I needed a wholesome feel good dinner so I made something simple.

Grilled lemon pepper chicken on a bed of sautéed spinach with garlic chips, whole wheat couscous and roasted zucchini.

Today I’m sore from my class in hell at the gym and might just walk/bike ride around town.

Every meal so far today has been breakfast-y.

Breakfast: 3 cereal combo – Kashi Honey Sunshine – Fiber One 80 calories – Kashi Heart to Heart

w/ strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon and chia seeds in almond milk

Snack: Yogurt with blueberries

Lunch: Rice cakes w/ almond butter, sugar-free strawberry jelly, banana slices, chia seeds and the rest of the banana w/ almond butter

Afternoon snack will probably consist of some cottage cheese w/ pumpkin seeds

and then I might go all out and make some pancakes or a breakfast sandwich for dinner. What do you think?

QUESTIONS: If you could eat one type of meal all day what would it be (breakfast, lunch or dinner)? Should I make pancakes or a breakfast sandwich for dinner?
