Sometimes we forget we cannot control everything. Heck, there truly is only so much we can control. Learning to let go, to gain control.
Quick and easy clean lunch. Quinoa Pasta with lentils and peas. Bring quinoa pasta, 2 ounces to boil- cook and drain. Then in a medium heat sauce pan add 1 teaspoon vegan soy free butter with 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Throw in the peas and lentils along with the pasta. Then add two fresh grated cloves of garlic… And 1/4 cup of Daiya cheddar cheese… Heat and serve. My goodness isn’t was tasty!! 400 calories per serving… Which this was one serving.
Have you tried this?

Tight muscles to stretch: Pecs, Upper traps, Levator scapula, and thoracic extension.

With all my thyroid issues and love of all things carb related, I’ve decided to cut some out. These winter months and stress have driven me right to them. Tonight starts my kick off of limiting carbohydrates. I don’t mind vegetable carbs, but I am watching my intake of potatoes.
Came home to steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. With a strawberry spinach salad with garbanzo beans and almonds. Delicious!!! More menu options to come soon.
I wanted a treat this morning, so I made a dirty, but clean green smoothie.
2 cups of spinach (organic)
1 cup of water
2 frozen bananas
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 scoop Garden of life Raw Fit protein powder
2 tsp Hemp Protein High Fiber
1 tbsp Chia seeds
Blend and enjoy- please tell me what you think!
It’s important to make sure you are getting enough protein, but remember it doesn’t have to be from an animal source. The smoothie for today I focusing on keeping protein high and plant based.
1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of kale ( 2.5 grams of protein)
Liquify in a blender
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 scoop Raw Fit from Garden of life ( 28 grams per scoop)
3 tsp of Hemp Protein powder, high fiber. (11 grams)
1 tbsp No salt peanut butter (3.5 grams of protein)
Total of 45 grams of plant based, organic protein. This was shared between two people, but easily could be breakfast and mid morning snack for one.
Tell me what you think and your other plant based protein add ins.
