Meal Plan Monday: Real food edition

What I learned from the last 2 weeks of 2 a day protein smoothies/shakes:
  • Vanilla Shakeology is better than chocolate.
  • Raw vegetables are hard for my body to digest. 
  • I can blend greens in my shakes though.
  • I don't like juice - I like smoothie and shake consistencies.
  • 2 smoothies a day was fine by my palette, but I need to eat more.
I'm continuing with a smoothie a day, for breakfast, but eating dinner. I considered eating a breakfast and having a smoothie for dinner, but I like quick breakfasts that I can consume while teaching and since I work out after work, I like to be lighter (from the smoothie) for the workout and I like to refuel after.

Lauren from Sweat the Sweet Stuff posted an delicious breakfast [for dinner] burrito. The Fitnessista is always posting about her egg burritos too. I was craving them. After two weeks of breakfast and dinner smoothies, I miss real food! 

Last week I made pad thai using zero calorie noodles and cauliflower rice with chicken. I'm continuing with it though it's not particularly delicious or anything. I had leftover batter from today's oatmeal protein pancakes so that'll be a snack tomorrow.

Reintroducing... MEAL PLAN MONDAY!

  • Lunch - cauliflower rice with chicken
  • Dinner - egg burrito as seen above
  • Lunch - cauliflower rice with chicken
  • Dinner - egg burrito as seen above
  • Lunch - cauliflower rice with chicken
  • Dinner - co-workers at Mario's (probably ceviche!)
Other food to consider:

For funsies, my cousin is thinking of date ideas for his girlfriend. Here's what would make me swoon:
  • Picnic at the park with cold cuts
  • Dinner in Laguna Beach and then walking around the artsy area
  • Outdoor movie theater
  • See "Wicked"
  • Rollerblade/skate
  • Ice skating 
  • Duffy boat with wine & cheese
Actually, these are things I'd like to do with anyone.

What are you making this week?
