Wow, WIAW is almost out of its 20s- the 30th post will be next week! How exciting!
For this week’s post, I’m showing my eats from last Friday.
I love Friday mornings. I teach Bodypump at 7:00 am, which is so much easier to wake up for than my 5:30 am classes on Monday and Tuesday! Since I only teach the one class on Fridays, I typically get to the gym a little early to fit a little cardio in. I actually really look forward to that cardio time- it’s the one and only time of the week that I use a cardio machine (not including a Spin bike of course), and I usually just zone out with a book. This particular morning featured The Happiness Project and the stair climber. After that, I taught Bodypump and came back home to create this masterpiece:
Ahhhh… the Vitamix flower- it’s only achieved when a smoothie reaches the absolute perfect consistency and has the perfect balance of ingredients. I know that Laura gets just as excited as I do about this sight.
In that smoothie was all of this:
All of the same ingredients as the recovery smoothie, plus a little bit of frozen spinach and cinnamon.
I had a massage appointment at 10:00, so I made a quick breakfast before I left.
It started with a cup of coffee…
And also included a very atypical breakfast for me: a delicious runny egg on a piece of Ezekiel flax bread (toasted) and a tangelo.
I rarely ever eat a savory breakfast, but this tasted really good.
I had scheduled all of my clients to train with me Monday-Thursday so that I could have Friday afternoon off. It was a great decision! A while after returning home from my massage, I made lunch.
Beyond Meat “chicken” salad (Beyond meat, chopped apple and red onion, dijon mustard and Veganaise) with mixed greens on a Flat Out wrap and roasted red cabbage. This was so good!
I also had a handful or two of these:
Since it was a Friday, that meant pizza and beer! We almost always make pizza for dinner on Friday. I never get sick of it (because it’s so easy to make something different every time) and it’s nice to not have to think about what to make for dinner.
I had a simple mixed greens and tomato salad
And pizza made on a “cheesy” crust. The crust was SO good, I will definitely be making it again!
The “cheese” was not good at all. I will not be topping my pizza with Teese again. Barf.
I used this beer for the crust (and drank the rest with my pizza).
I’m not a big light beer fan (and admittedly a major beer snob!), but this one is pretty darn good!
Another Friday night tradition (most of the time) is popcorn. We usually buy kernels and pop them in an air-popper, but this is my go-to when I’m feeling lazy:
It was topped with a little bit of melted butter and sea salt. Mmmmm.
Water tally for the day:
Enjoy your Wednesday!
Are you a savory or sweet breakfast person (or do you like a variety)?
