I had such a nice Monday! My workday was calm, steady and productive, I had a nice cardio sweat session, and after work, I made it to Ulta and the grocery store. I also whipped up some amazing veggie tacos with black beans for dinner.
For the tacos, I simply sauteed mushroom, green pepper, zucchini, onion, a hot pepper from my mom’s garden, broccoli slaw and fresh corn with Hot n’ Spicy taco seasoning and coconut oil.
All plated together with avocado and tomato:
I decided that even though I’m eating meat again, I really need to make it a point to make some meals all veg.
Later this week I’m planning to make The Fitnessista’s Zucchini Noodle Pasta with Cashew Cheese Sauce. Hello yumness!
Here’s my grocery store haul:
Some of the usual and also a few random grabs. Ezekiel bread was on sale for $3.50, so I snagged the only one left on the shelf – Cinnamon Raisin. I got more Rudi’s tortillas and wasn’t thrilled with that $5.50 price tag, but I really like them, so I went with it. The Larabars are for emergencies to keep in my desk at work and I’ve missed Greek yogurt, so I grabbed a couple of those, too.
I also splurged on some SO Delicious Mini Coconut Milk Ice Cream Sandwiches! Cannot wait to try these babies!
Other food for the week includes:
- Eggs with spinach
- Cottage cheese
- Fage Greek Yogurt
- Bananas, Nectarines
On the fitness end, I’m planning on the usual, plus at least two morning workouts, and two days of doubles. Double days I plan to do a lift for one session and cardio for the other – both about 30 minutes each.
This morning was 21 Day Fix Lower Body and it was fabulous! I used 20 pound dumbbells for the majority.
