Back on the Health Wagon with Turkey Chili Rellenos

Today’s eats were typical of the healthy lifestyle I try to pursue.

Breakfast:

Oatmeal with bananas and peanut butter.

Then to the gym for some weight lifting and running. I did chest,triceps, calves, and abs, and ran 3 miles.

Lunch:

A smoothie. This one had frozen mango, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, Greek yogurt, oats, flax-seed, and coconut water. I usually put something green in there like spinach or kale, but I’m going out-of-town tomorrow and just trying to use up what I have.

This baby had romaine, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, lima beans, brown rice, bread and butter pickles, and ham.  Wow, it was agood one.  Pickles in a salad are where it’s at.

And the grand finale:

I also split the corn crab chowder and American Kobe Burge:

Those homemade chips were amazing.  Still warm, and mostly crispy, but some still had a nice potato chew.  Now I have the urge to make my own potato chips. Stay tuned for those in the near future.
