Can you really go wrong waking up to a Fitnessista genius creation – the breakfast cookie? I think not! My combo today involved oats, hemp protein powder, peanut butter, 1/2 banana, unsweetened shredded coconut, vanilla oat milk & strawberries.
However after the cookie, I was still hungry so I snatched the other 1/2 of the banana and slathered on some peanutty goodness…this gal LOVES a big breakfast!
Breakfast obv kept me full all morning long. Around 11:30am, I started my bovine ways by munching on an avocado-lettuce sammie on Ezekiel with mustard. Anything with avocado I maintain is delicious. Then at about 1pm, I broke open my first Oikos deliciousness from Stonyfield Farms and got a little blueberry buzz. It was everything I hoped for and more…
A little more info about our friend Oikos…
Most importantly, it’s organic! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe there is another organic Greek yogurt out on the market. Because it removes the whey (liquid) from the yogurt, Greek yogurt is super creamy and thick – not to mention chock full o’ protein (somewhere between 12 – 15 grams per single serving container!). Stonyfield Farms makes their yogurt from small family farms, is free of pesticides, chemicals and growth hormones and did I mention delicious?
Since I am a huge proponent of organic dairy (ya gotta treat the cows right so they treat us with good milk!), I have to say as expensive as Oikos is, I need to start buying it more. I do like my Fage, Chobani and TJ’s Greek yogurts, but Oikos is organic. And that means a lot of moi - guess if I kick my coffee habit I could pick up a Greek yogurt habit? Hmmmmm….
A 20-minute walk/breath of fresh air at 1pm.
Okay, so I really hate technology today. Not only have I had uber-problems uploading this post, but they erased my gloriously photographed picture of the Raw Organic Food Bar in Chocolate Coconut I had at 3pm yesterday afternoon. The nerveeeee!
I was still feelin’ snacky (to the tune of “Bossy,” for the record), so at 4pm I was about to grab a handful of peanut M&Ms when out of nowhere, I found a fresh veggie platter in our break room at work! Woowoo – I mixed me up a nice lil’ spread with about 1 tbsp. of veggie dip and delightfully enjoyed a much healthier snack…
After work, I skedaddled on over to my girl Ashley’s house where we bounded out the door for a 4-mile run in the still obnoxiously hot MN temps. We were two sweaty beasts after, but it felt fab. Running with somebody else always makes the time go by so much faster! Dinner was an Ashley-Holly mix of deliciousness…
colby jack cheese
dollop of sour cream
All together now…
Dessert was a lovely chocolate chip granola bar split between Ash and myself.
After dindin, we skedaddled again over to beach volleyball – woowoo! Wednesday nights are fast becoming my favorite night of the week (even though I am forced to miss SYTYCD - So You Think You Can Dance). For the record, in my next life, I want to come back as the host Cat Deeley. We lost 2 games to 1 last night, but again, major team improvements are happening!
Which is totally reason to celebrate with this…
A lil’ Leinie’s Honeyweiss – my fave!
I was one tired gal, so I headed straight to bed last night and got up extra early to prepare this post for y’all. It’s all for you my loyal readers…all for you!
