Sun? Is that you??

Oh yes! It's SO nice out today and the forecast looks incredible for the weekend :) It's about damn time! My yard is becoming a swamp with all the rain we've had.

Let's see whats been going on in the life of B-dubbs (one of my nicknames in case your wondering haha)

I've had one of those weeks where I really tapped into the freezer for my lunches to bring to work. Luckily we have a panini maker at work where I can nicely grill up these bad boys:
Yes that would be my lunch for Monday and Tuesday! Those black bean burgers are my favorite! So tasty with a little sour cream and salsa (packed in their own individual condiment containers of course), and served in a pita.
On the side I cut up whatever veggies I found in the fridge. One day happened to be carrots (orange and yellow), and green beans.
Another day was the colorful carrots and bell pepper slices...rainbow!I also came up with a KICK ASS Italian style breakfast sandwich for dinner one night too!
Started with the heal slice of Arnold Double Protein Bread...toasted
  • Then I cracked 1 egg into a small pan with cooking spray
  • Then I added some Tuscan seasoning to the egg!
  • Onto the toast went a garlic and herb laughing cow wedge spread
  • top with sliced tomato
  • egg
  • another tomato slice
  • and finally a slice of prosciutto!
  • serve open face
  • enjoy.
  • SOOOOOO good!!!!!!!
I enjoyed this with a little salad of green leaf lettuce, tomato, and from frozen corn kernels! Topped with some olive oil and balsamic.
So I finally gave in to all the hype about the Amazing Meal stuff, and combined with Jenna's coupon code...I couldn't say no!

Ok so I bought a packet once to try and made a typical green smoothie, but thought the Amazing Meal gave it way more of a chalky weird taste.
However I STILL ordered the 2lb canister?! No fear, I had a plan.
Since my special order came in an inconspicuous package I didn't have any measurements to go by. So I used 1 T of Amazing Meal + 1 T of my Vanilla protein powder.

Also into the blender went:
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 3 frozen strawberries
  • 2 slices of frozen banana
  • 2 kale leave
  • both powders
  • BLEND
This was actually quite delicious...the vanilla protein powder counteracts the weird texture of the Amazing Meal, but I felt great knowing I was getting the benefits of that lovely greenish powder :)

Other items included many breakfasts similar to this:

Lots of Yogurt and Berries this week ;) ...and the last of the homemade granola.
I just can't help it...it's berry season and they are so inexpensive! I am constantly buying strawberries :)
Tomorrow is my Hair Trial for my wedding day hair style!!!!! I'll try to post pics...that is if I like it haha.

Then tomorrow night is one of my friends Bachelorette party in Boston...we have a fun party bus!
