It was an early wake-up call so I started the day with coffee.
Workout: I tried a new Jillian Michaels dvd (Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism) – I haven’t purchased any workout dvds in a long time, but since I’ve been working out more at home lately, I needed to change it up. I loved this dvd! It does not require weights, which is great if you are going to take it with you on a trip and is a combination of cardio, kickboxing, plyometrics in a circuit form. It was intense, got me sweating and left me tired. Perfect!
Breakfast: My first paleta meal of Honey Yogurt, Fresh Grapes, Veggie Sausage Patties, Chili Lime Almonds and Fresh Berries. So good, and surprisingly filling.
Snack: I was working over the normal lunch hour so I also had part of the snack on my way to work. I tried the Energy Bite (left corner) and I was really skeptical – I typically don’t care for those types of bars, they usually are filled with dates, too sweet for my taste, etc. but these were great – there was definitely peanut butter in it but I’m not sure what else!
Lunch: Thai Chicken Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce (and the clementines above) – I was a little worried that the salad would be soggy, but it was great and much more filling than I expected! The dressing was delicious and the salad contained chicken, carrots, peppers, onions, fennel and celery – all over spinach.
Snack 2: On my way home I grabbed a snack from the store I was working at and when I got home I made some miso soup while dinner was heating up. I must say, it was wonderful to just throw dinner into the oven and not worry about anything else!
Dinner: Lemony Cannelini Bean Dip with Cucumber and Carrot Sticks (they were designated as a snack) along with Snapper with Lemon Mustard Sauce, Roasted Zucchini, Brown Rice with Lentils and Slivered Almonds. Dinner was delicious!
Dessert: Chocolate x2!
I’ll be sharing my full review on Paleta with you next week, but I’m SO excited for the rest of the meals to come. I was so impressed with everything today!
Enjoy your Wednesday!
