Breakfast/ Lunch/ Product Reviews

Not Expected

Well my day just instantly brightened because I got the results from yesterday’s race online and I actually placed FIRST in my age group! 🙂 Totally not expecting that! I guess I shouldn’t have hightailed it out of there so quickly yesterday…they might have given me a trophy or something!!!

Anyways, happy Monday folks! Hows it going? It took me 2.5 hours to fall asleep last night. Meh. Surprisingly though, I wasn’t tired at all at work. I started off with this bar—


Which I LOVED. Seriously, this bar was really really delicious. It had a nutty and chewy texture and was huge! Two thumbs up, Nature’s Path!

I also had a half cup of egg white fluffies


It was a very satisfying early morning snack…great ratio of protein/carbs/fat to keep me going for the first five hours of my workday!

Around 8:00 I broke out breakfast, which was a huge cookie a la Gina!


This bad boy contained 3/4 cup oats, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein, 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp almond butter and 3 tbsp hemp milk. I love how BIG it was!

And for some reason when I got home, all I could think about was almond butter & jelly… that’s exactly what I had! On a toasted ezekiel muffin, no doubt. I also had an extremely juicy sliced mango


This lunch made me happy 🙂

I’m off to catch up on emails, attempt to book a hair appointment ,and then and get outside for a bike ride! See you for dinner!

    Hey Jenna!
    This is a bit of a random comment/question…but I was at Greenwise last night and I bought some pre-made crispy baked chicken tenders. Usually the chicken tenders from publix are fried but I was so happy that these specified their “un-friedness”! They were actually really good.. have you had them before? Because I wanted to know the nutritional info for them because I will definitely be buying them again 🙂

      I know what you are talking about but I don’t know the nutritional info for them. Nothing in Greenwise is fried and they actually take a lot of pride in their “oven-fried” chicken tenders! MUCH healthier than the fried version, I can assure you! I’m so happy you enjoyed them!!

      March 16, 2009 at 3:15 pm


      All I do is pour egg whites into a microwave-safe cup or mug (sprayed with nonstick spray) and then zap in the micro for 1 minute!

    hey!! there is definitely a raw foods transition (megan has been teaching me a TON about it because she went back to raw vegan a couple of weeks ago) and i’ll have to send you an email about it because, well, it’s a little graphic hahah.
    hooray for a delicious bfast cookie!
    i broke the ‘meatless in march’ a couple of nights ago 🙁 the shrimpies were beckoning and i couldn’t turn them down! how awesome of the amy’s fairy to keep hooking you up with those goodies!
    congrats on deciding to do a longer run, for an excellent cause!
