I should be doing my homework, buuuuut I will hold that off for a bit. Last night I came home from class and was so hungry, it was too late to be cooking something, so instead I just made myself a green monster. It wasn't as great because of my lack of Almond Milk and I have a feeling it was also due to my banana. I honestly believe the best banana out there is Dole. Instead I had a small frozen Chiquita. There is just something special about Dole and I can't put my finger on it.
My green monster was ehhh.
- 8oz almond milk +water
- handful of steamed spinach cooled
- 2 scoops of Amazing grass wheatgrass
- 1 Tbsn Salba
- 1 Tbsn Chia seeds
- 1 scoop chocolate whey
- small frozen banana
- Peanut butter!
I also made sure to pack my lunch for today last night. Today's lunch was brown rice with cucumber salad w/ TJ's reduced fat Feta + grilled chicken breast.
I had my lunch cold again, it was colder than it was yesterday but suprisingly again...it was great! I love the Foreman so much, it was the best tasting chicken that I ever prepared for lunch. I used Mrs. Dash's original blend + garlic pepper to season the chicken.
Sorry for the bad quality. I can't recall the exact measurements but this includes:
- Drained black beans
- 1 whole cucumber
- a squeeze of lemon
- TJ's diced tomatos with green chile (drained)
- Mrs. Dash
- Chilli flakes
- some of TJ's reduced fat feta or you can save for the end.
I just loved the mushiness of the black bean and the crunchiness of the diced cucumbers together, and the creaminess/distinctive flavor of the feta. It is pretty good cold since I've been eating my lunches that way lately.
This morning I had oats! I had left over ingredients from my cookies and wanted to indulge something sweet.
+ My oats included PB, sprinkle of semi-sweet chocolate chips, sprinkle of shredded coconut, chia seeds, salba, a naner, and a tad of Maple butter. So good, everything melted in together and I was tempted to add more chocolate chips but I held myself back.
+ SOOOOO remember that starbucks I had last night? well the caffiene from the coffee totally messed with my sleep. I couldn't sleep at all, I was in bed listening to my ipod and/or try to move around and get comfortable.
+ I probably fell asleep around 5am and woke up at 7:30. I felt so drained today at school. After class I decided I was okay enough to head to the gym.
+ I just got back from the gym an hour ago, I ate my lunch and ....
...and I was craving coffee, so got the same order from yesterday. As I was drinking it I decided to post a blog about my lack of sleep due to the starbucks, and I realized that the coffee I was drinking at that very moment was caffinated. I forgot to get it as a de-caf :o(
+ I'm just hoping that I can fall asleep tonight. I have been drinking coffee for the past three days. I hope it doesn't become an addiction. I need to head back to drinking tea again.
Which is your favorite starbucks drink and which is your least favorite?
Goodnight, wish me luck on my sleep, I think I'll need it :o(
