Good morning everyone! Can you believe it’s already Wednesday?? Where the heck did the first two days of this week go? Not complaining…just saying 😉
This morning after a sweaty Mom walk (it was hot out, but is supposed to be goooorgeous the rest of the week, yes!) I had a nice cup-a-joe out of a brand new mug one of my best friends gave me for my birthday!
Isn’t it pretty?? I love getting new travel mugs. My stash isn’t that big, so a new addition is always welcome!
Well after the hot walk and hot coffee, I was ready for something cool and light for breakfast – so I made a Fruit + Yogurt Bowl!
In the mix:
- 1 Blueberry Buckle flavored yogurt
- 1 medium banana
- 1 handful blueberries
- 2 dried apricots
Creamy yogurt, chewy apricots & bursting berries – so heavenly!
I just have to tell you that yogurt + bananas is one of my favorite flavor combos, like, ever. I think it might have something to do with the tart yogurt and sweet banana tastes mixed together. If you can’t tell, I’m all about flavor combos 🙂
For lunch today, I packed a salad! I just love salads for lunch because it’s easy to prepare, it’s basically a vehicle for any awesome topping you can think of and it fills me up without weighing me down. Do you ever have those humongo lunches that leave you so tired and unable to work or think in the afternoons? Yeah, not a fan.
In today’s mix:
- Mixed greens
- ~2 T Black Beluga lentils
- 1 medium cucumber, seeded & sliced
- 1 slice pepper jack cheese
- 1 handful blueberries
I am seriously convinced that these lentils are the cure to all afternoon hunger woes. The past two days I have been full for the entire day after eating them in my lunches!
Wow, so I definitely got my blueberry fix in today, huh? Blueberry yogurt, blueberries on top of my fruit bowl and even in my salad! Did you happen to know that blueberries are a natural and rich source of antioxidants and vitamins E, A & C? Sounds good to me!
Hahahaha oh gosh – Ben just got up and stumbled into the kitchen looking so angry. He is NOT a morning person and today he looked particularly upset…hehehehe…
Aight…time to start the day – it’s going to be a busy one. Make it great!
Do you take any types of vitamins?
I take a women’s, daily, multi-vitamin and have recently started taking a B complex vitamin – which smells like cat food but seriously gives me massive amounts of energy. Maybe it’s all in my head, but I can definitely tell when I haven’t taken either of them!
