Sunday morning I woke up with a bit of a headache. Josh had made us gin spritzers (again) and I may have had a bit too much gin. The problem is you can hardly taste it!
A cup of coffee and a protein pancake was just want I needed. (Sorry, no picture!) After breakfast and a shower Josh and I headed out to the Ramsey Farmer’s Market.
We got blueberries, bread, bell peppers, tomatoes, kale, red onion, cucumbers, local honey, fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic 5-cheese ravioli and trail mix. Even though it was cloudy it was so much fun to roam around and find new local goodies.
After the Ramsey Farmer’s Market I headed out to Trader Joe’s where I picked up the remainder of our groceries and some new-to-me items.
I wasn’t crazy about the kale chips but absolutely love the Quinoa and Black Bean Infused Tortilla Chips (especially dipped in the Blue Cheese Roasted Pecan Dip). The Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette taste great mixed with some broccoli slaw. The pre-cooked Just Chicken was a super easy addition to the quinoa power bowls I made (see below). And I have yet to try the Coconut Yogurt and granola bars.
After grocery shopping it was time for a delicious lunch which consisted of using leftover steak for sandwiches. We used the bread from the farmer’s market, steak, basil parmesan mayonnaise, fresh mozzarella, arugula and red onion.
On to the meal prep! I prepared protein blueberry muffins from the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan.
Broccoli slaw with the Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s.
Quinoa Power Bowls.
Into each serving went quinoa, kale, black beans, bell peppers, tomato, chicken and various seasonings. I also prepped Bombshell Spells for the week, Banana Mango smoothies, and hard boiled eggs. And that’s pretty much it for food prep! On a completely different note I had the most delicious dessert last night.
Chocolate peanut butter ice cream with a peanut butter cookie. YUM!
