Happy Friday guys! OK don’t judge me, I’m not a food blogger so my food picture taking skills are limited. I wanted to share some of the meals I’ve been making so I just made sure to snap these with my iPhone. If you read my last post you know what my goals were.

More veggie/fruits smoothies, I’ve been trying to have 5+ servings of veggies and fruits daily. This is fairly easy because I plan all my meals for every week, so I can easily make adjustments. I started making my kimchi, edamame and kale cauliflower fried rice again, I started with this recipe but ended up cutting out the bacon and only use half of the oils. I also added kale and edamame for extra veggies. I also picked up cauliflower tots by Green Giant after Fran posted about them and they taste just like potatoes. I dip them in a mix of bbq sauce and siracha, so yummy and satisfying.

I’m always looking for recipes that sneaks in extra veggies and these Buffalo Chicken Meatballs were a winner, already made them twice. To take a break from eggs in the morning, I started making Quinoa Porridge, I altered this recipe as well by replacing one cup of milk with water. In mine I used unsweetened almond/coconut milk, for extra fruits I sautéed 3 apples with cinnamon and added them to the mixture, I also cut the amount of brown sugar in half, skipped the nuts and didn’t add extra brown sugar on top. I recently started making this my post workout meal, because I’ve been weight training more than 3 times a week.

No dairy, well I did find the perfect dairy free creamer, it’s by Califia and I am beyond happy with it. I did try that coconut milk creamer and it made me hate life, so I can officially say I don’t miss regular creamer anymore. I am however having a hard time giving up cheese, I’m not having it as much as I used to but I didn’t cut it off completely. I’m open to trying some good alternatives if you know any please let me know or if I make an awesome discovery I’ll make sure to share.

On Sundays I like to make myself something yummy for dinner, I never make pasta at home but when I saw this Butternut Squash Spaghetti Carbonara recipe I was sold. I had dinner around 5pm that day and didn’t eat until the next day, it was so delicious.whole wheat butternut squash spaghetti carbonara

Fitness, Strong & Sweaty is still kicking my butt and I love it, inspired by Gina‘s post I started a workout journal to track my daily workouts. I was so sore on my 5th workouts that just like Gina I started incorporating Yoga to my routine and what a difference it made. I have this awesome yoga dvd that I totally recommend, it really inspired me to practice more because it’s amazing how all the tension you felt in your body is gone after a session. So my last three weeks of working out looked like this.

Week 2:

Week 3:

You do need workout equipment to do these, I have dumbbells ranging from 5lb to 30 lb, step with risers, resistance bands, barbell, stability ball, a bosu and gliding discs. I recently got this mat to protect the tile in my apartment.

Next Month Goals

  • More weight training – I’ve been doing more weight training and while it is hard I enjoy it a lot more than cardio. I only lost 1 pound so far but my clothes have been fitting much better so fingers crossed.
  • Clean up my diet – I don’t expect to have a perfect diet but to actually stick to my goal of eating more whole foods and cut down on animal products.
