Today I made the mistake of forgetting my camera on our hike...such a rookie mistake right?! It's too bad because it was a beautiful day with some great views. We packed some snacks for the trip, which turned out to be a good thing because we decided to go all the way to the top, totalling 9.5 miles in over 3 hours. Throughout the hike I snacked on a banana and had a peanut butter sandwich at the top.
When we got home, I was pretty hungry and munched on lots of random stuff, including this yogurt bowl.
Kefir, vanilla yogurt, raw oats, chia seeds, and "peanut butter" made from TJs peanut flower. I know this looks so random, but its honestly delicious. I have one every day as a snack! I often throw in some chopped apples as well. And note: Kefir is amazing for helping with digestion and it is generally okay to eat for those who are lactose intolerant because the (good) bacteria in it break the lactose down. Trader Joes sells it for the most reasonable price that I have found. I usually buy this one:
I prefer it over the flavored varieties, which have a lot more sugar.
Another snack that I had, and have at least once or twice every day is a small cup of hot milk with a packet of Truvia. It is seriously so good, fills me up, and satisfies my sweet tooth! Just be careful because if the milk is too hot, when you add the Truvia it will cause the milk to overflow (which I have definitely done a few times).
For dinner, I was craving some veggies and roasted some brussels sprouts and zucchini.
After they cooled, I used them to make a salad.
Brussels sprouts, zucchini, broccoli slaw, romaine, mushrooms, salsa, black beans, and Fage greek yogurt on top. This salad was huge! I also had a mug of my favorite tea ever.
I loooove tea and am always looking for a new kind to try! What's your favorite kind of tea?
