Sunday, June 3
Breakfast – Green Smoothie #3 – Banana-Berry – I totally thought this smoothie would be awesome…but it was actually kinda boring! Not sure what to add to jazz it up a little, but it definitely needs a little something….
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup pc organics unsweetened almond beverage
2 cups spinach
Morning Snack – Eat Clean Chocolate Walnut Brownie
lunch – leftover Eat Clean Spicy Sausage Hash Brown Pie – I wasn’t too sure how this would taste as leftovers, but I actually think it tasted better today than yesterday!
Afternoon Snack – Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and Guacamole – So yummy, actually had seconds!
And then I had another brownie
Dinner – Buffalo Chicken Wraps – Eat Clean Style – Buffalo Chicken Wraps are a family favourite, but since we normally make them with store-bought chicken fingers and load them up with cheese and Ranch dressing, they really don’t fit into Clean Eating. Well, until today…when I made Eat Clean Chicken Fingers, used Whole Wheat Flax Tortilla Shells, and very little cheese. Pairing it with a tossed salad – made with fresh lettuce from our garden – with an olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing, it was healthy and delicious meal.
another 4 more Eat Clean Chocolate Walnut Brownies. Yep, I said FOUR! Holy pig!
So, after eating a total of SIX brownies today, I thought I’d check out just how bad it could have been…had I not been Eaton Clean. Here’s a comparison:
The Eat Clean Brownies had almost half the total number of calories than the regular Chocolate Walnut Brownie of the same size. They also had half the carbs, twice the protein, and 1/4 less fat.
I’m totally a sweets girl, always have been, always will be. At least I know that by Eating Clean I am definitely eating healthier, even when it comes to sweet and treats.
I have no idea why, but I was super hungry today…maybe it was the disappointing smoothie I had for breakfast that left me wanting more, or maybe it had a bit to do with boredom and the fact that it was ANOTHER crappy day out, and we’ve pretty much been stuck inside for 3 days…who knows…but what I do know is that those brownies are D.E.L.I.C.O.U.S.! You should definitely try them!
4 hours. Tanner woke at 3 and I’ve been up ever since…maybe I was all those brownies! I definitely see a nap in my future!
