Once I finally got up the nerve to get back out of bed I put together a quick breakfast. 1/2 a whole wheat bagel with 1 tbsp almond butter and 1/2 a banana on top. I ate the rest of the banana on the side.
For lunch I made a veggie wrap with my new roasted red pepper hummus!!! So excited to try this new brand and new flavor. I also decided to beef up my wrap a bit with some black beans. I've noticed in my calorie tracking (yes I track, more on that later) that I'm not getting a great balance of carbs to protein, so I'm going to make a conscious effort to sneak more veggie protein in when I can. I'm only eating meat about once a week these days, so I need to make sure I'm getting enough protein from other sources. Today's wrap includes:
- 8" whole wheat tortilla
- 2 tbsp roasted red pepper hummus
- 1/4 cup black beans
- arugula lettuce mix
- red bell pepper
- broccoli sprouts
And a pink lady apple on the side...
And I packed a new flavor (for me) of Clif Nectar...dark chocolate walnut, for an afternoon pre-run snack.
I have the office all to myself today! My boss and one other co-worker are in D.C. checking on some of our jobs, so I'm enjoying playing whatever music I feel like! It'll be a great day for lots of productivity without distraction...woohoo! :)
