Meal and Workout Journal for Saturday 2/16

Here is my Meal and Workout Journal for today:

9am - 1 cup cooked oatmeal; 1 1/2 total cups of rice and soy milks, 1 medium red delicious apple, chopped; 1 tablesppon of flaxseeds and generously sprinkgled powedered cinnamon. 2 cups of yerba mate-green tea.

11:30am - Medium banana

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.

Here is our workout:

 4:30pm - I had a green protein  smoothie and Bret had a banana and mango protein smothie.

For dinner we had home-made falafel, humus and tabuli; and (store bought) pita bread. I also made Tuscan Kale and White Bean Soup I found at:

Falafel mix

Sauteed onion and garlic

Used 1 box of vegetable broth for the soup

After adding the broth to the cooked onion and garlic, we added the veggies (chopped fresh kale, tomatoes and carrots).
