Lunch – Bento Veggie Rolls I saw these being made on my way out of the gym this morning and had to have them. I love spring rolls! So good. I didn’t eat the dip though, I think it was some kind of peanutty thing, but I was a little nervous, so I totally skipped it!

20120629-204408.jpg

Snack – 1/2 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt and a 1/4 cup of Chocolate Love Crunch This is my new go-to snack…so good!

20120629-204624.jpg

Dinner – Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Ancient Grains bread – too tired and too hot to cook…I guess that really just boils down to too lazy:(

Clean Eating Challenge: Day 14

Well it’s been two weeks since I started my 40 Day Clean Eating Challenge. I needed a little motivation, and something to hold me accountable for my eating, and I can honestly say, it’s working. Documenting my clean eating journey has definitely made me consider what I’ve been eating, has forced me to cook dinner (something I really don’t enjoy doing), and even caused me to give up Chai Latte (most most favourite warm drink ever)!

Day 13

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….

Ingredients:
1 banana
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup pc organics unsweetened almond beverage
2 cups spinach

20120604-053213.jpg

Morning Snack – Eat Clean Chocolate Walnut Brownie

20120604-054520.jpg

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!

20120604-054136.jpg

Afternoon Snack – Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and Guacamole – So yummy, actually had seconds!

20120604-054340.jpg

And then I had another brownie

20120604-054520.jpg


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.

Evening Snack(s) 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:

20120604-061657.jpg

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!

Water Consumption:
11 glasses

Sleep:
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!

Clean Eating Challenge: Day 12

Saturday, June 2
Day 12

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast – Green Smoothie #2. This recipe was one listed in Oatmeal in my Bowl’s 30 Delicious Green Smoothies list. Created by Ashley at (never home) maker, it contains

1 frozen banana – which I nearly froze my fingers off trying to peel!
2 large handfuls of spinach
2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

It looked disgusting, but tasted pretty good. Maybe a little chocolatey for my taste – did I really just say that? What is the Clean Eating Challenge doing to me??

20120602-122437.jpg

Morning Snack – just a Timmy’s Peppermint Tea. We were outside this morning watching Daddy rig up a Land Rover for a commercial shoot, and I needed a little something to warm me up afterward.

20120602-122804.jpg

Lunch – leftover Eat Clean BBQ Chicken Deep-Dish Pizza

20120602-123501.jpg

Afternoon Snack – one Eat Clean Chocolate Walnut Brownie and one piece of Eat Clean Caramel Pudding Cake… couldn’t resist, both still warm from the oven!

20120603-084618.jpg

Dinner – Eat Clean Spicy Sausage Hash Brown Pie from Clean Eating Classic Comfort Foods 2012. This is another first for me, time-wise this one was ok, taste-wise…yummo! I love the spicy sausage!

20120603-083530.jpg

Evening Snack – Kashi Roaster Almond Crunch Bar 1 package

20120603-081641.jpg

Water Consumption:
6 glasses – need to drink more!

Sleep
7.5 hours with only a slight interruption to feed Tanner. I am definitely falling back to sleep a lot quicker after nighttime feelings. Yay!

Breakfast – Green Smoothie #1 – The Easy First Timers Monster posted by Amanda at Run to the Finish

Ingredients:
1 cup PC Organics Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Beverage
2 cups Baby Spinach
1 Banana
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

20120602-062729.jpg

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.

20120602-062758.jpg

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.

20120602-062748.jpg

Afternoon Snack – 1 cup of Cherries and a 1/4 cup of Unsalted Mixed Nuts

20120602-062804.jpg

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.

20120602-062817.jpg

Dinner – 1 serving of Eat Clean Deep-Dish Chicken Pizza

20120602-062810.jpg

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’!

Water Consumption:
7 glasses

Sleep:
7 hours of uninterrupted sleep! Now I just need to start getting to bed a little earlier!
