Okay… we ALL know that I love my eggs and toast, but this breakfast that I’m about to share makes my mouth water… It happens every time: I take the first bite & my immediate reaction is to smile big and say “yuuuuuuuum!”
The breakfast I started yesterday with was…. flax plus waffles with honey greek yogurt, raw almond butter, and organic peach slices… YUMMM! There’s a tiny smear of Kerrygold butter on the freshly toasted waffle as well. Seriously ladies, this is divine.
I started my day with a super easy & calm walk/jog followed by some floor exercises at home. It’s in the 80’s here, and being in a muggy gym sounds no good. Outside in the sunshine? Yes, please!
After breakfast I cleaned up, got myself ready, and started work from my DIY standing desk. I love this stand that’s allowed me to do work from my laptop as I stand. I hardly want to sit at my desk now.
Believe it or not, I actually feel more productive and focused when I stand. I always thought it would be the opposite.
I ate this small bowl of lentil soup for lunch (around 1:00)…
Note: I felt like I could go without lunch… I didn’t have any of my usual hunger cues like: a stomach growl, or slight nausiated feeling. I did notice that I felt slightly weaker and a little less focused (perhaps those are my first signs of gentle hunger that I sometimes don’t notice). Since I knew I still had several client sessions to go before I could eat again, I ate something small anyway – this bowl of lentil soup :). Usually I’d pair this with avo toast (it’s so good!), but as I said, I wasn’t very hungry. This turned out to be just what I needed to feel re-focused and re-energized for work. I guess those waffles really held me over!
Mid-day I walked to the grocery store. I was finished with office work, had a break between client sessions, and wanted to get outside (it’s crazy gorgeous here right now!). It was so nice to take a break from my computer and walk outside. I stood so much yesterday, and because of that I slept amazingly last night! I cannot say it enough – I’m so glad I found a way to not have to sit so much…
Before my last client session I enjoyed this dark chocolate. I wanted a little pick-me-up, and a piece of chocolate did just that. I also enjoyed peppermint tea during my session, which is so nice and calming.
For dinner Marco and I ate more brown rice, chicken, broccoli, and avocado bowls. See recipe here. We ended the day with: PJ’s, Royal Pains on Netflix, and some incredibly deep sleep…
What do you think of waffles with yogurt, almond butter, and fresh peach for breakfast? Will you try it? (I literally cannot wait until breakfast again today!)
I hope you have a great day!
