MNB Challenge – Recap Week 2

I had every intention to post this on Saturday, and somehow I didn't. Sorry about that, y'all! Anyway, here it is: my week 2 recap of the Move Nourish Believe Blogging Challenge (See my week 1 recap here) with Lorna Jane.

Day 6: Go meatless - this one wasn't very hard for me (seeing as how I went meatless for 15 years of my life!) I have no problem skipping out on the meat and replacing that with protein-rich veggies and/or protein powder! I posted a recipe this day for my favorite protein muffins: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Muffins.

Day 7: Take your lunch to work (TYLTW) - I was unfortunately sick this day, so I didn't go to work, but I did document what I would have brought to work if I had gone into the office.

Day 8: Write it down - Food journaling can be really helpful to keep you on track with proper nutrition. Sometimes, we think we only cheat a little, but when it's on paper, it's actually quite a lot! Have you tried this before?

I follow a pretty outlined food schedule, eating every 3 hours or so.

6:30am - eggs

9:00am - apple w/ almond butter

12:00pm - green salad w/ chicken

1:00pm - raw chocolate covered cherries

3:30pm - protein muffins

6:00pm - protein shake

8:00pm - chicken lettuce wraps

Day 9: Smootie day - I just made a simple protein smoothie: Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl protein powder, organic frozen strawberries, flax seed, and unsweetened almond milk. Tasted like a milkshake. Yum!!
