My day's meals and activity went as follows:
8:30am 32oz water
10:00am Green Smoothie [recipe after the break!!]
Breakfast Bake, strawberries, and Banana Bread Waffles [recipe featured next weekend!]
2:00pm Snack time! Grapes, baby carrots, chips and guacamole
6:00pm Cilantro-Lime Farro Salad + Gingerade Kombucha
6:30pm 1.8 mile walk with the pups
8:30pm Medjool date-based "frappuccino" with Vega Viva Vanilla protein (yes, I use plant-based supplementary protein -- usually after high-intensity and strength training workouts, but I was a bit low on my protein intake today)
Don't forget that you can take a look at my daily nutrition breakdown on MyFitnessPal and friend me on DailyMile!
We snacked on chips and guac, pretzel crisps and hummus, grapes and carrots in the afternoon along with iced tea or rootbeer. Cameron and Kevin also had the leftover Chipotle Lentil Burgers before leaving for the evening.
My parents and I had a classic vegan bean, grain, and veg salad adapted from an Oh She Glows recipe.
Update on my brothers from last night: Kevin had the burger because he had not eaten since breakfast and would not have had enough to eat had he not had the burger. This is a perfect example of what happens without proper planning. This lifestyle is only realistic when you have the foresight to anticipate what you might need. No one wants to be hangry!! My brothers also went to Buffalo Wild Wings later in the evening, where Kevin had a black bean burger and Cameron had jalapeno poppers, which he thought were vegetarian, but later found had "bacon bits". Whether or not these were made of real pig is unknown. Oh well, moving forward! I gave my brothers a "pass" to follow a vegetarian diet for this weekend's evening meals, but after that it should be back to strictly vegan (other than eggs).
