Boy, oh boy, did I eat a lot of crap and drink way too many beers over the weekend. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in DC for 3 days with friends? Since I spent the majority of yesterday hungover/ barely functioning, I couldn’t wait to wake up this morning and start feeling like myself again. And in order to do so, I need to start eating a cleaner diet. No more pizza at 10 pm or late night diner stops for grilled cheese and fries. This week it’s all about healthy good eats.
First up? A green smoothie for breakfast.
‘PB & J Green Smoothie’
In the blender:
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 2 spoonfuls peanut butter
- 1/2 – 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 medium banana
- handful of kale (<– I’m def using spinach next time)
I packed up the smoothie and brought it to work with me.
Maybe it’s just me but I was not lovin’ the kale as much as I like spinach in my green smoothie. It had a really strong taste that overpowered the other flavors. :( Do you guys like kale in smoothies??
I didn’t have any ‘lunch foods’ at home so I took a quick break and headed over to Whole Foods. I made a salad with with romaine lettuce, green beans, peas, corn, shredded cheddar cheese, 1 hard boiled egg, grilled tofu, and olive oil vinaigrette dressing. Such a tasty, satisfying meal.
Wild haddock with some EVOO, ground flax seed, and pepper on top. And on the side I had roasted asparagus and butternut squash. Although the haddock wasn’t my favorite and I kinda wished I splurged and went with the wild salmon, it was still an awesome dinner. The butternut squash was very ‘fall’ tasting and delicious!
I also snacked on trail mix, green tea, and this Suja drink:
For real, eating healthy was pretty easy today so I’m hoping that feeling continues all week. I have less than 4 weeks ’til my wedding/honeymoon in Aruba/bikini-time so I really want to be as healthy as can be!

Thursday: 4 mile run w/ hills
