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?
