Happy Wednesday beauties!
This full day of eating is actually from Sunday. As you may have heard, I am running in a triathlon this weekend! It is only a sprint tri (0.25 mile swim, 10 mile bike, 5K run) but I am getting super excited. To be honest, I haven’t been training super hard but I hope that I can still be competitive. If not, I just hope to not die since I don’t run that much. Anyway, my boyfriend and I wanted to practice the open water swim portion at the location the race will be (Madeira Beach) and drove down to the beach on Sunday to practice! The beach is only 35 minutes from me – jealous?? 😉
We went out Friday night and this is the only picture I got The rest of the activity was on SnapChat!! Full outfit from Forever 21.
Obsessed with these Cauliflower Oats. Made with vanilla protein, cinnamon, tons of berries, and a banana.
I actually got hungry again by the time we got to the beach so I snacked on half of this bar. It was super delicious and seedy and a small amount of carbs for a pre-workout snack.
I am also in love with my Apple Watch cuff!!! Super stylish instead of the boring black band that the watch comes with. My best girlfriend actually invented and launched the product – The Ultimate Cuff – earlier this year. I get so many compliments when I wear it. So, if you love jewelry as much as I do, it’s a must. She also offered to give me a discount code and I of course said yes!!! My code is DietitianDeanna for 20% off. It’s a perfect gift for Mom or your sister too.
After swimming a quarter of a mile and walking the beach several miles, I wasn’t super hungry but knew I needed some carbs and protein to refuel while we ran errands (Whole Foods, Target, Trader Joe’s). So I munched on half of this cookie and a protein shake made with 1/2 scoop ProZero Strawberry Jam and 1/2 scoop My Pure Goodness Chocolate. Tasted like a chocolate covered strawberry!
Eaten at Whole Foods while the man chomped on pizza!
We ran errands, got too much stuff at Target, and picked up some delicious salmon for dinner!
Dinner was this exact meal. I made the eggplant fries by just chopping the eggplant into fry shapes and roasting at 425 for 35 minutes alongside the brussel sprouts. Sprayed with coconut oil spray and Himalayan pink sea salt before roasting! I also had some mushrooms dipped in hummus.
NEW TRADER JOE’S FINDS:
The Just Beets are perfect – sweet and earthy and addictive! The Chili Lime Seasoning I put on some tilapia I meal-prepped for the week. Obsessed!!
Vegan marshmallows! I ended up passing on these but they felt so fluffy and perfect and I absolutely LOVE S’mores during the summer.
These are perfection as well. Macros are on point and they go perfect crumbled over some Arctic Zero ice cream and a protein mugcake!!
A bunch of rice cakes + a generous amount of vanilla almond butter (homemade) and peanut butter. Can’t go wrong there.
Feeling nervous but more prepared for the triathlon after the training this day. I will make sure to do a full recap as well if you are interested in running one.
Also, what are your favorite Trader Joe’s finds recently? I am there AT LEAST once a week so give em to me!
