Bret and I do our grocery shopping on Saturday mornings and this is how it went and what I ate...
12pm - At Whole Foods Market (WFM), we had a fig bar and a few pistachio nuts (samples). We also shared a bowl of plant-strong food from the WFM kitchen (cole slaw with dried berries; brown rice with kale and tofu; kale and garlic salad; sweet potato pecans and coconut milk) - it was delicious! We got it for only $5!
At Trader Joe'sI just had a rice cracker sample.
1:45pm - Green drink sample at Sprouts (store). Afterwards I drank a cup of cold green tea and then Bret an I shared a medium banana (pre-workout).
2:30pm to 4pm - Bret and I worked out on chest and abs. We only did 20 minutes of cardio at the end though. I started jogging for 4 minutes, sprints for 13 minutes (30 seconds speed, 30 seconds rest) and 3 minutes jogging, then 2 minutes cool down.
