Today’s eats were typical of the healthy lifestyle I try to pursue.
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.
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. Unfortunately, I just ran out of coffee and didn’t want to buy again just for tomorrow. So, I put the leftover coffee (I always have leftovers, which I usually dump…why?) in a mason jar in the fridge and will enjoy an iced coffee for breakfast tomorrow… Genius!!!
Dinner was a use up meal. I had 4 poblano peppers, one avocado, some grape tomatoes, half an onion, some peppadew peppers,leftover marinara sauce, and a lime lurking in my fridge. The result:
Good day y’all. Guess what today is? $5 Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill. It’s every Wednesday, and if you have never been there and had it, you must go. Now. I ate extra healthfully today to somehow make eating fried shrimp smothered in a creamy sauce okay. For breakfast, I had a smoothie with strawberries, banana, blueberries, cherries, mango, yogurt, spinach, chia seeds and apple juice:
It never looks as good as it tastes. Then I was feeling really ambitious and opted for a run outside in the 95 degree Florida heat. 2 extremely hot miles! Then for a humongo salad for lunch:
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.
