Tasty Tuesday!

First of all, another reminder (maybe the final one!) to enter my 150 Followers Giveaway!!! Entries will be accepted until 5:00 pm central time tomorrow, August 10.

It's been a couple of weeks since I have done a Tasty Tuesday, so I thought that it was time to remember to take some pictures of my food!  Now...  oops, I totally forgot to bring it with me to work in the morning, so I once again have to just tell you my morning eats.  You'll just have to take my word for it.  ;-)

Breakfast: big bowl of PB&Syrup Oats!  Recipe: Nuke 1 cup old fashioned oats with 1 cup almond milk for 2 and a half minutes.  Stir in a tablespoon each of peanut butter and sugar free syrup.  450 calories.

Morning snack: Luna bar and extra small banana 252 calories

Lunch: Bean and veggie bowl- Recipe: 1/2 cup canned tomatoes, 1/2 cup kidney beans, 1/4 cup shredded carrots, 2 cups spinach steamed in microwave for 1 minutes, add 1 tsp EVOO and salt to taste.  224 calories

Afternoon snack #1: about a cup and a half of fresh cantaloupe! 83 calories

Afternoon snack #2: my newest obsession- So Delicious Coconut Yogurt in vanilla 140 calories
Dinner: 4 cups of steamed broccoli and cauliflower, 1/2 cup black beans, 1 cup brown rice 514 calories

not pictured post-dinner snack: 2 soft tortillas 140 calories

Unfortunately, I started to feel under the weather this afternoon, and that has only gotten worse!  Now I have a sore throat, runny nose, and a fever.  :-(  So needless to say, I am skipping tonight's planned workouts (6 Week 6 Pack + some time on the bike) to go to bed early and to spend a lot of time with these guys:

Diva's a great sick buddy!
Today's totals- 1663 total calories eaten - 169 calories exercised (I counted some housework towards exercise today, don't judge me!) = 1494 net calories

Well, I'm off to bed.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel better and be back on track with my exercise!

I hope you wake up feeling better. Colds are no fun!!! Your meals looked good. I may have to copy your lunch and dinner! YUM!!!

Hope you feel better soon! I have never seen the SO Delicious coconut yogurts before--only the ice cream. I have to try to find them!

Ok so I'm a bit behind in my Google Reader... but still felt compelled to post a comment. So here I am posting a comment.

What's the comment? Oh yeah...

I'm in love with your PB&Syrup Oats recipe!! In fact I love all your pictured eats (except the coconut yogurt, that new coconut stuff just doesn't agree with my post-chemo taste buds but I wish it did!).

Thanks for reminding me that eating clean- vegan, vegetarian or whatever- can be easy and quick!! I really needed that reminder!

You rock!
