WIAT!

Hey guys!

Sorry I decided not to do WIAW because my eats yesterday consisted of asian stir fry with tofu and fro yo…and i think a piece of toast thrown in there somewhere. That is all, it was quite boring.

So instead I’ve decided to do a What I Ate Thursday! Hope that’s okay with y’all ;).

I got up this morning at 8. Looked outside, it was raining. I like the rain, but not when you have to bike to class. BLEH.

I tried to persuade myself to ditch class and go back to sleep because I was soooo tired (I went to bed at 2 am, remind me to never do that again when I have early class) and sitting in class completely drenched sounded awful.

Then I thought about the samples of About Time protein powder that I received, and I jumped out of bed in excitement. Seriously, who gets excited over protein powder? That’s right, I do.

vanilla it is!

100% natural ingredients, 1 scoop is 103 calories with 25 g of protein! it's made with stevia too!

What to make? What to make?! I decided in a hurry (already missed the bus, soaking wet biking was my only other choice) on Cookie Dough in a Bowl!

You want the recipe? Okay fiiiiiine.

Cookie Dough in a Bowl

adapted from The Fitnessista

serves 1

Ingredients:

1/3 c oats

1/2 scoop protein powder (I used About Time Vanilla <– SO good!)

a few shakes of cinnamon

a splash of vanilla extract

half a smooshed banana (or sweetner like stevia, honey, agave)

1-2 tbsp nut butter of choice (I totally forgot this today! GRR)

milk (any kind will work, I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk) or you could use yogurt

toppings (the possibilities are endless: fresh fruit, more peanut butter, nuts, seeds, coconut, dried cranberries, chocolate chips…the more creative, the better!)

Directions:

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl and then add milk until consistency resembles cookie dough. Add desired toppings!

Well, I made it to class. I lucked out, it was only sprinkling on my way to and from campus. Woot woot!

For a mid-morning snack I enjoyed this lil guy.

lululululuunaaa bar lovin

chocolate dipped coconut. sooo pweettty. soo deliciouss.

Then my momma came to visit and we went to Cafe Bernardo! Mmmm I will definitely be going back there. They have theeee best breakfast burrito but this was the first time I’ve been there for lunch!

salad sampler. perfect for indecisive people like me!

Clockwise from the right: mixed greens, cucumber & cherry tomato salad, and thai chicken noodle salad. They were each so unique I really couldn’t tell you which was my favorite. But then again, I’ve never met a salad I didn’t like.

After some veggin out and getting homework done, I had a few pieces of my new fave, FROZEN MANGO.

my crack.

I worked out (did a HIIT workout on the treadmill for 20 minutes, and a HIIT workout on the stationary bike for another 20 minutes). Laid down and cried, and then did a mini arms and abs set. Like really mini. It was 20 tricep dips, 20 pushups (non girly), and 2 one minute planks.

Dinna timeee!

the goods.

I sauteed some spinach and TJ’s Asian Stir Fry mix in some sesame oil and Bragg’s liquid aminos.

I had salmon marinating in TJ’s Island Soyaki sauce overnight so I popped that into the oven with some chopped up fresh ginger (chopped is a lie, they were more like big chunks…we don’t have a grater so I had to make do) at 350 for about 25 minutes.

such a good dinner! i was proud of myself. notice the huge chunks of ginger? i hate that word. chunks. ew.

Mmmm such a good day of eats! Now I’m off to relax some more and chat with the roomies.

Until next timeee! Hope you had a fantastical day 🙂

Muah,

Kara

    • I love it! You should definitely try it 🙂 I just tried the cake batter flavor today in my oatmeal and it’s awesome! Although I really liked the vanilla too…I just can’t decide which one to get! Eeek!
