The breakdown...I got this delicious recipe from Bites and Bliss! Her Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread. It is so good. And actually not that bad for you, or so I think. It is made with whole wheat flour and 2 tbs of brown sugar and 2 tbs of white sugar. Other stuff too but not nearly as much sugar that is in most banana bread.
Since I never make banana bread, I have to enjoy it. So this morning after my workout I toasted it with Almond butter and sliced banana. So good!
Now to MUSCLE NOG! Do you guys like egg nog? Well I don't! At all, so I was skeptical when my husband brought this home. He loves egg nog. Muscle Nog is actually made by a family friend. It is the only nutritionally complete 100% bioavailable egg protein on the planet. Basically it is just like a protein shake only better. One serving is 2 scoops which equals 110 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 0 sugar and 20 grams of PROTEIN. The flavor that we have is called 'Nilla Nog. Yes, I was very skeptical but gave it a try this morning. It was de-lish!!
See how happy my husband Scott is after drinking it! It just makes his day!! He wanted me to make sure I took a picture of how he mixes it. Do you have a frothier?? If you don't and you drink any kind of protein shake or vitamin drink this is way better than using a spoon. Add powder, half milk, start to mix and add the rest of the milk. Voila! No lumps!!
We both had a great morning really. Scott had to get his motor bike inspected because we are going camping this weekend. Can't wait! And so he got to sleep in a little which meant more time to hang in the morning. So after I work out I take my Advocare supplements. I like taking them and because they are great for your body and Heather is a rep so I get a killer deal. Oh and I love SPARK!! Yay for Advocare. Spark is what helps me get out the door for my morning runs.
Back to being healthy, I made turkey burgers with sweet potato fries and a tomato mozzarella salad. The burgers were so good. I put crumbled blue cheese on top with sliced tomato and avocado on a whole wheat english muffin. I know sweet potato fries are not the best for you but portion control right?! Plus it is tough to get my man to eat those sweet things so if I want them, its gots to be a compromise. See my plate. One burger and small amount of fries....then below that would be Scott's. He is 6'4" and is a lean mean muscle machine so I guess he needs more fuel for his body.
Oh and today I hit up Trader Joe's! Watermelon for 3.99! I know this sounds crazy but heavy things cost a lot in NY so if I were to buy this watermelon at my local grocery store it would have cost around 15-20 bucks! Holy Moly, right?? Anyways, I think I could eat my weight in watermelon. Just sit me down with a salt shaker and this bag and it will be gone by tomorrow :)
