What I Ate + A Recipe

Yesterday, I took pictures of everything I ate throughout the day so I could share it with you!  This is a fairly typical day.  Usually I do the Green Monster for breakfast, but I was attending a Boot Camp class and wanted the extra protein from the eggs before and the smoothie after.  I made enough of my lunch to have leftovers for today, and it's a recipe easy enough to double for a large batch that would last me a week.  Dinner is pretty typical - fish, veggies, whole grains.  More dinner ideas can be found in this blog from last summer!

What I Ate Monday:
Breakfast: 
1 egg + 3 whites scrambled with a cup of zucchini
1 slice of Ezekiel toast with a teaspoon of butter
1 cup of cherries and blueberries (frozen organic)
coffee

Post-workout snack:
Green Monster
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 big handful spinach
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 scoop Designer Whey 100 calorie protein powder
Stevia


Lunch:
Farro Black Bean Toss (recipe at the end)

Mid-afternoon snack:
1 cup raspberries
green tea with honey

Dinner:
Sauteed stir-fry veggies (Cascadian Farms frozen organic)
 5 oz sockeye salmon, marinated w/ soy sauce, honey, garlic, and lime juice
"Fried" Rice (brown rice, sauteed w/ cooking spray, onion, low sodium soy sauce, and an egg)

I also had 3 pieces of this "healthy" chocolate/pb fudge.  I make it in a 9x9 baking dish and chop it into about 40 pieces (then they are about 50-60 calories a piece)


Farro Black Bean "Salad"
2/3 cup dry farro - prepare as directed on the package
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 large tomato, chopped
1 summer squash, chopped
1/2-1/4 of an onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/4 cup feta cheese
Finely chopped fresh herbs (I used rosemary, thyme, and basil)
salt, pepper to taste (optional)
  1. Cook the farro according to the package directions.  While this is cooking, chop up you veggies.
  2. Saute the squash, onion, and garlic using olive oil or cooking spray until soft.
  3. Add the tomatoes and cook until hot.
  4. Toss the veggies with the farro, beans, fresh herbs, and feta.
  5. Enjoy!
