Morning Snack – I was seriously still full from my smoothie this morning, so I just packed a couple of Eat Clean Lucky Ginger Spice Cookies to take with me to the gym for after my 11:30 workout.

Lunch – Veggies and Hummus – Again I was still feeling a little full from my smoothie, so I opted for veggies and hummus to start – I was going to have a slice of Eat Clean Deep-Dish Chicken Pizza with it, but the veggies seemed to be enough.

Afternoon Snack #2 – It was such a cold, rainy day, Ryan and I decided we needed a little something to warm us up – normally I would have headed over to Starbucks and picked up a Chai Latte, but since I’m Eating Clean, and a Chai Latte has 43g of sugar in it!!! I decided to make us some homemade Eat Clean Hot Chocolate, super yummy and only 17g of natural, not refined sugars. You can find the recipe, as well as many other great Clean recipes over on my friend Meagan’s blog Megified.

Evening Snack – 2 Eat Clean Lucky Ginger Spice Cookies theses have to be one of my favourite Eat Clean cookies so far. The are so chewy! I will definitely be making them again very soon, next time I think I will double up on the spices to give the cookies a little more ‘kick’!

Day 9

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast – Plain Oatmeal Pancake with Maple Syrup

Oatmeal pancakes are a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast. They are also high in protein, keeping you fuller, longer. Here is my oatmeal pancake recipe – I’ve changed it up a bit lately, and since I’m eating clean, I’m skipping the chocolate chips and topping it with fresh fruit instead – although today I used 1 tbsp of pure maple syrup.

1/2 cup quick cook oats
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix it all together, and cook it up like a regular pancake.

Morning Snack – 2 Eat Clean Caramel Coconut Chewy Bars As I popped in at home to change after team teaching BodyAttack and before heading back to the gym for my Skinny Jeans Workout, I needed something sweet. I grabbed them out of the freezer and ate them immediately…they were so good!

Lunch – Open Faced (not because I wanted to, but because we only had one slice of bread!) Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Dinner – Pork Tenderloin, Corn on the Cob and Asparagus. Asparagus has to be one of my favourite veggies, especially when grilled on the BBQ. I like to mist it with olive oil, add some salt and pepper and let it sit for about 15 minutes before grilling. Yummo!
