Day Two: CRUNCHY!

Today I woke up feeling great! All that vegan goodness from yesterday must’ve done me good. Either that or the fact that because I had no caffeine in my system that I fell asleep at 11pm. Hmm.

Anyways, today I started off with a Celery Apple Smoothie which was weirdly crunchy.

  Strange Mouthfeel but Delicious 

Clearly I did not take the above picture, but that’s what it looked like before I gulped it down while rushing out the door because I was running late AS USUAL.                                (May be a new goal forming here…we’ll see)

Morning snack was 1/2 an Avocado with lime & salt. MEXICO!

Lunch was a delicious and filling

Spinach Avocado Trail Mix Salad

Spinach, Avocado & Trail Mix Salad

The trail mix ( I used HEB’s Energy mix) really pumped the salad up and made it super filling and delicious.

After lunch I took my dog buds and bugs to the lake for a      3 mile walk. After that I came home and did some booty blasting exercises and this day’s workout fitness and finished it up with some yoga.

Dinner! Dinner was an achievement today. I made Roasted Chickpea, Tomato & Zucchini Soup which was time consuming (have to soak the chickpeas for an hour and then roast for an hour), but the end result was delicious. Roasted Chickpea & ZucchiniAgain it was a little crunchy for a soup as the chickpeas become like peanuts when you roast them. Maybe I was doing it wrong, but that’s how my soup turned out. It was good though because then I didn’t need any crackers or bread or anything with the soup as it was already crunchy and mouthfeely <–new word I like btw.

No dessert tonight as I ate waaay too much of that soup, but I did finish the day with a nice cup of lemon/ginger tea 🙂

Yay! Progress continues!
