Howdy my lovelies! How are we on this fine WIAW?
I hope you are enjoying this weeks link up party! As per usual for this WIAW I will share Tuesday’s eats with you all. 🙂
Yesterday for breakfast after completing a yoga podcast I made a quick breakfast fruit smoothie, no greens here! The smoothie included strawberries, a chopped banana, honey, water, and strawberry protein powder. I also had a small bowl of orange and walnut granola with some vanilla rice milk and a chopped apple. This granola is lovely and I’m so eager to create my own version of it this weekend. I just love the fruity orange flavour with the crunchy granola. I’ve never thought of putting walnuts and oranges together before, but it totally works.
On the run up to lunch I snacked on some apples- I ended up having 3 before the afternoon came around. I just love my apples! 🙂 For lunch I munched on my new favourite salad combo courtesy of Ragnhild:
Love this sweet and salty salad! The sweet figs just make it super tasty!
For afternoon snackage I raided my stash of rice cakes and topped them with a sachet of Justin’s peanut butter…yum! I also treated myself to a large gingerbread soy latte (sans coffee!).
This was my first try of Justin’s nut butter and my taste buds were really impressed. It’s most definitely going on my shopping list for my trip to America next month!
All fuelled up I headed over to my 1 hour Body Pump class. I did a 10 minute interval warm up session on the cross trainer before the class. The class was amazing with even more newbies than last week. I love it when the class is full as the instructor seems to get a kick out of it and seems more into the class. She really worked us hard and I even increased my weights last night too. I think I may have increased my weights a little bit too much as I am really feeling it today.
For dinner I headed to the freezer for a hit of my Carrot and Ginger Soup swirled with plain soy yoghurt and two slices of toasted rye bread for a quick meal.
After dinner I inhaled another apple and lots of 99% dark chocolate..yum!
