This morning I whipped together a quick green smoothie to get my day started.
This smoothie included Vanilla Chobani, apple juice, frozen strawberries, mangoes, pineapples, 1/2 of a frozen banana, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder and a whole lotta spinach! Since the green smoothie challenge ended, I’ve found myself craving green smoothies more and more. I’ve found a good combination that fills me up and tastes great so it works!
After breakfast I got ready and headed over to visit my grandma with my mom for Easter. On the way home we stopped by the store to pick up a few things we both needed, and I found some new items I’m excited to try!
I was looking for a hearty cereal and decided to try Nature’s Path Crunchy Maple Sunrise cereal. The ingredients looked great and I compared to nutritional stats to other cereals around it and this one measured up pretty well. I’m a BIG cereal fan so I have high hopes for this one!
Larabars were on sale so I grabbed two flavors I haven’t tried before, Apple Pie and Coconut Cream Pie. I haven’t seen the Cappuccino flavor around since it came out but I’m dying to try it!! Hopefully I’ll find it soon. Originally I picked up a Dark Chocolate Almond Butter to try out but it was a little pricey and I didn’t want to buy the whole jar if I wasn’t sure about it, but then I saw the mini Justin’s Maple Almond Butter and quickly grabbed that! Every time I go to the store the mini packs are sold out and I’ve been dying to try it. I’m excited!
By the time I got home I was huuuuungry (the worst state to be in while grocery shopping) so I threw together a quick salad. Dinner was going to be ready in a couple hours so I didn’t want to make a big lunch and be full for dinner. The salad included spinach, arugula, strawberries, tomato, walnuts, salt, pepper and olive oil. I also toasted up a piece of sourdough bread on the side.
Dinner was salmon, asparagus, broccoli and a piece of sourdough bread. So good!! I haven’t had salmon in way too long, and I’ll always love my parents’ cooking.
I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday, whatever you may be celebrating today. Hopefully it included lots of laughter, happiness and chocolate!
