Dinner – Eat Clean Waffles with Fresh Strawberries I think I’ve posted the link to this recipe before, but here it is again. These super healthy waffles are pretty tasty when topped with fresh fruit – and according o my husband – when loaded with maple syrup too!

Water Consumption:
8 glasses

Sleep:
5.5 hours – this was probably the crappiest sleep I have had in the last 38 days. Both kids were up in the night and I could not fall back to sleep after feeding Tanner…I was up from 3:15 until after 5…at least the kids slept in a bit so I could at least get some sleep!

Lunch – Eat Clean Chicken Quesadilla Casserole. I made this dish a few weeks ago and wasn’t really that thrilled about it, so I put it in the freezer and forgot about it. Well, I pulled it out today, had a bit for lunch…with salsa, of course, and it was de-lish!

Day 30

 

 

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 30 days! Despite a few slip-ups here and there, I’m quite impressed with how I’ve done so far. Sticking to something for 40 days is hard…only 10 to go!

Breakfast – in sticking with June’s Green Smoothie Challenge, this morning I had a Strawberry Kiwi Green Smoothie. To be honest, it wasn’t my favourite, maybe because all the fruit was fresh so the smoothie seemed a bit runny…I don’t know… Oh well, here’s what I put in it

3 cups baby spinach
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 kiwi
1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp ground flax

 

 

 

 

Lunch – an Almond Butter Wrap. In a rush, with not much in the fridge, this was all I could come up with. 1 tbsp Almond Butter on a small Whole Wheat Wrap. Sorry, no picture…totally forgot as I scrambled out the door!

Dinner – leftover Steak with a Slice of Cheddar Cheese and 7 Kashi Pita Crisps – Zesty Salsa

Lunch – Santa Fe Salad with Grilled Chicken– today Tanner and I had lunch with my friend Pam. We went to Boston Pizza and both Pam and I enjoyed a salad off of their Summer Menu. It was so good, and big, I could barely finish it!

Dinner – Green Smoothie #20 – Strawberry Grape
. Since I was still full from lunch, dinner was going to be a Green Smoothie and a leftover piece of steak…after the smoothie, I didn’t have room for steak, so dinner just ended up being a smoothie, good think I added a scoop of protein to it!

Ingredients:
2 cups baby spinach
1 cup green grapes
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flax

20120620-082426.jpg

Snack – 9 Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – I just needed a little something…maybe it’s because I didn’t have a proper dinner…who knows, but these almonds sure hit the spot!
