Sure, you can enjoy foods in bowls all year long, but this week is super for bowl meals. It’s a little cooler, and meteorologists call for rain almost every day. Sounds like bowl weather to me!
My pre-gym breakfast is a rice cake with a spoon of peeb.
My post-gym breakfast, which is a few hours later, includes 1/3 cup of oats, 1 scoop of natural vanilla whey protein, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/5 cup of raspberries. Raspberry + Vanilla = Yummy Combo.
On Sunday, I made a lentil soup in the slow cooker. You can check back tomorrow for the recipe. It’s perfect for these rainy days!
Snack is sadly bowl-less, but it’s delightfully delicious. I am having a Fuji apple and hardboiled egg each day (M-F).
Dinner alternates throughout the week. Last night I had a Gorton’s Signature Grilled Tilapia over brown rice and spinach. That meal didn’t actually require a bowl, but why stop a good thing?
I wish my after-dinner snack required a bowl (read = ice cream), but I’ve actually been pretty chill with the snacks lately. Tea, an Eat.Think.Smile bar or popcorn has done the trick.
Have you been in a snack-y mood lately? Does the weather influence your eating?
I feel like I should throw in a tidbit about my workout from yesterday. I did Katy’s 99 workout since it looked challenging and Hayley gave it such a rave review. Wow. My arms were tired!!! My push-ups were definitely modified – all 484 of them! I actually skipped the first half of the squats because I forgot about them, but I still got a good workout without them.
