Bonjour à tous!
Non, on ne parle pas Francais? D'accord....
Bienvenue a Day 3 of the Clean Eating Challenge.
Before I even start, let me just put this out there, I did not succeed today. I got super hungry today and didn't have anything besides ritz and peanut butter....I gorged man. It happened but it's okay, at least I didn't eat it just to eat it but because I was hungry and there was nothing else.
Everything else I stuck to, it was nice.
Breakfast? It was the overnight oats and I was kind of hesitant but it was delicious!!!
I prepared it the night before (aka I finally learned to follow directions)
I made it in the container, it looked like this
I put it in the bowl and added at tad bit more honey.
Then lunch was the salad, sadly, I didn't have fennel so I just had the chickpeas, kale, quinoa, I added a tad bit of chicken to compensate :) and mint with the orange vinaigrette. It was delicious!!!!
My snack was amazing, again no feta so I just had tomatoes, balsamic and basil.
Pro-Tip 1: Buy in bulk at Whole Foods. It's much cheaper and better quality.
I spent 12 bucks at whole foods and bought all my grains/seeds/nuts (quinoa, lentils, flax, almonds, pistachios, chia seeds etc.) and my honey and vinegars.
Did you know whole foods sells balsamic vinegar, I only bought what I need and it was like $.50
you fill up the jar with what you need and buy it!
But yes, that was my lunch, the balsamic was 12 years old and viscous and amazing.
Dinner was the napa cabbage wraps, super fresh and amazing. I used the frozen mango that was supposed to be for breakfast because when BF gave prep directions, they left 1/4 of the mango unaccounted for, so I ate it.....not knowing it should have been used for this meal. So I'll head to the grocery and pick myself another mango before Saturday!
Again, I had all the ingredients, the dish was super fresh and amazing.
I will say that I did use a previous pro-tip. I put the lime dressing ingredients in the mason jar and shook, I also did not use 1/4 of a cup of oil, I used maybe 2 tablespoons.
and it was yummy in my tummy like this
I didn't have my 2 clementines, this is when I had the ritz and peanut butter. I was out and I have a ton of excuses but it is what it was.
See you tomorrow. (Also, I just uploaded a youtube video about a cool thing, check it out here)
Thanks for keeping up with Shamoya
