So, I totally missed yesterday’s post, but don’t worry – here it is! Yesterday’s Blogger Challenge Question was what do you eat before a workout?
Well, for me, it depends on the workout.
Before a Sunday morning long run I have a Vanilla Cliff Shot and a glass of water…usually about 15 minutes before heading out the door!
Before a weekday morning BodyAttack class, I usually have an oatmeal pancake. They are super yummy, easy to make, easy on the tummy and provide enough energy to make it through the one hour, high impact, cardio conditioning class.
Evening workouts are a little different – I’m still trying to figure out what works for me. I am definitely someone who needs to eat before a workout, but I have yet to find the balance between eating too early and eating too late, feeling like I’m going to barf, and feeling like I’m going to pass out!
So, what you eat before your morning/afternoon/evening workout?
Today’s Blogger Challenge Question is: What are 5 foods you can’t live without?
1. Starbucks Chai Latte….love. Love. LOVE!
2. Ingredients for my Oatmeal Pancake. This is my most favourite breakfast ever, I probably eat it at least 2-3 days a week! You can find the recipe here.
3. David’s Tea. I had no idea there were so many yummy tea flavours! My faves are Forever Nuts, Cocoa Chai Rooibus and Cinnamon Hearts.
4. Greek Yogurt and Love Crunch. I have this for a snack pretty much every day…so yummy and healthy too!
5. Corona – if I’m going to enjoy a beer, it’s gotta be a Corona! Love a cold one (or more) on a hot day!
What are 5 foods you can’t live without?
Thursday, June 7
Breakfast– seeing as I have been a little laid up this week, I didn’t make it to the grocery store yet to replenish my Green Smoothie ingredients. So, I went back to my old favourite, Eat Clean Oatmeal Pancake with Fresh Blueberries.
Lunch – today was the last day of Ryan’s Gymnastics class so Lisa, her mom Sharron, and I went out for lunch with the kids. We went to Sgt. Peppers. The menu didn’t have many clean options, so I went went a Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry. I was actually really good!
Afternoon Snack – the last two Eat Clean Caramel Coconut Chewy Bars – straight out if the freezer! Yummo!
Dinner – I totally did not feel like eating…or cooking for that matter, so we headed to the grocery store for some fresh ingredients and dinner was a smoothie…Green Smoothie # 7 – Peanut Butter and Banana. This one is definitely my favourite so far!
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp ground flax seed
5 glasses – not great…will focus more on that tomorrow.
7.5 hours…no wake- ups! Woohoo!

Breakfast – Oatmeal Pancake with Fresh Strawberries
Morning Snack – Starbucks Protein Platter (I was not prepared to be out of the house as long as we were this morning, so I grabbed the healthiest on-the-go snack I could think of). It was really good, and was only $5.95 + tax….not much more than a chai latte…which I have not had since last Friday …that’s gotta be a record!
Lunch – leftover Supperworks Black Bean and Brown Rice Wrap
Afternoon Snack – 12 almonds and a half cup of raspberries
Dinner – Eat Clean Chicken, Spinach and Ricotta Quesadillas – again this was another first for me, and although it tastes really good, it took FORVER to make! I ended up making something else for my daughter to eat since I didn’t actually finish making and baking these quesadillas until 8pm! Thankfully it made 8 extras which I’ve put in the freezer to pull out and bake in just 24 minutes!
Evening Snack – Eat Clean Caramel Coconut Chewy Bars – time to make a new treat, this one is super yummy, but I’m ready for something new!
7 hours…unfortunately my daughter has been waking up at 5:30 and coming into our room:( Definitely need to put a stop to that!
