Another weekend comes to an end. This one is exciting and a little different considering its right before Christmas!
Saturday morning I woke up and went straight to the gym for some glutes cardio. On the way home all I could think about was making my pumpkin protein pancakes. So I get home, turn the stove on and start pulling ingredients when J breaks the news. We were out of vanilla protein. I wanted to cry. Determined to still have a good meal I started
ripping apart our fridge pulling all of the random things out of our fridge that looked appetizing and nutritious. This is what happened.
First I scrambled some eggs. There were only two left so I knew this wouldn’t be enough. While they cooked I mixed Plain NF Cho with all natural pumpkin, chai seeds, shaved almond, cinnamon and pieces of Ezekiel raisin bread. OMG…..so so good!
We hung out around the house or a couple hours then made our way to dinner. Josh made reservations at one of our favorite Thai spots. Love him.
After dinner we went to one of our favorite places. Wegman’s! I seriously love that place. Now if only we could get a Trader Joe’s and/or Whole Foods somewhere close!
While at Wegman’s something very unusual happened to me. I got a sudden and strong craving for ice cream. Although I love my sweets, especially chocolate, I’m not a huge ice cream person and never have been. Since its the holidays and I rarely ever crave ice cream, I decided to give in. And, OMG am I glad I did.
When we finally made our way back home I had a package waiting for me
My pumpkin banana protein shake won runner up in Silk’s Autumn Recipe Pinterest Contest! My prize was this sweet BPA free tumbler glass, a coupon for a free gallon of milk and a really nice, hand written note of well wishes. Seriously made my day!
This morning when I woke up I was craving something super clean. Probably a result of last nights ice cream binge. What’s cleaner than a Green Smoothie?
So good. I highly recommend making this and even trying different fruits and veggies. The spinach takes on the taste of the other ingredients so you don’t taste it, but get all of it’s healthy benefits! Win, Win!
While J was at the gym I snuck out and did some last minute Christmas shopping. Shortly after we both met back at the house he was firing up the grill. Grilled marinated chicken and homemade potato wedges.
I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I have to work early but will be home in time to get ready and take part in the festivities! I may be MIA on the blog until after Christmas but will probably be Instagraming since I can’t help myself.
