Vegetables for breakfast!
I was all over the place today for work and was out of town when lunchtime hit. I ran through a BBQ joint that I knew had baked potatoes. I ordered one potato, plain, and a side of corn.
This afternoon I had the best snack ever. We found some pears in the frig at work that were a gift from one of our vendors. They were so bright and crisp. I also made a hot cup of Hibiscus tea. Sooooo good.
I had a few of my Energy Bites on the bike tonight for fuel. They’re so easy to make and they freeze really well making them perfect for grabbing before a workout.
1 cup oats
1/2 cup nut butter (I used almond butter)
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Other optional ingredients: chia seeds, cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut flakes. Stir all ingredients together until mixed. Roll into 1″ diameter balls. Keep refrigerated for up to a week, or store in the freezer.
On the way home I picked up another chopped salad from Doc Greens…gosh, that’s 3 times this week…and I added some hummus that I quickly whipped up. I should get extra points for skipping the croutons, dressing and pita bread, don’t you think?
