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?

WIAW

Woohoo half way through the week!! First of all I’d like to thank EVERYONE for their supportive comments, emails, texts and tweets on yesterday’s post. I was surprised at the amount of responses especially because I chose not to post it on Facebook for the day. But thank you all very much – it means a lot 🙂

I haven’t participated in a WIAW in a while so here it goes!

Breakfast was a cinnamon raisin bagel thin with egg whites and some turkey slices

Lunch was my new favorite smoothie: Blueberry Monster

What went into the smoothie below.

Dinner: This is on an appetizer plate – that’s why it looks overflowing! BBQ Pulled Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Zucchini Fries and half of a sweet potato biscuit

A day is never complete without dessert 🙂 – Chocolate Almond Butter Granola in Dark Chocolate Almond Milk. YUM.

I’ve been eating cereal/granola with chocolate milk every night after dinner. I just love the combo! It may even be better than ice cream? Just maybe though.

I wore these white jeans to work – Anytime I wear white jeans/shorts – it rains.

Yesterdays gym routine was 40 minutes on the elliptical and walking 1.6 miles on the treadmill. I ran Sunday and Monday so my legs needed a break. I also did a couple of ab routines. I bought the bender ball which I want to start using at home – it’s Alyssa’s (#2) secret to her banging abs 😉
I was feeling quite lucky because someone cleaned the entire house – vacuumed, mopped, did all laundry, cleaned sheets, scrubbed bathroom and kitchen

So really there was nothing else to do but rent the movie I had been waiting for to come out on DVD!

My thoughts? The book was 100 times better… But the movie was still cute it just felt cheaply made or everyone was doing a horrible job acting? Something was off.

I’m off to make that smoothie above and head to work – If I could give you one tip for the day it would be to make this smoothie this morning – it will give you TONS of energy.

Blueberry Cake Monster

  • 2/3 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 scoop of cake batter protein
  • 1 frozen banana broken into chunks
  • 1 pinch of xanthan gum
Blend well until all spinach is combined. You cannot taste the spinach so don’t be afraid to try it 🙂 See you tomorrow!

QUESTIONS: Are you always let down by movies after reading the book?
