Ugh, my head cold that I thought I was over has now morphed into an ugly green monster sitting in my chest. Nice. No fever or aches though. So, that’s good. However, I haven’t been sick in so long, and honestly, it sucks.

No workout for me today. On the schedule from Lindsey was some strength training, but I’m laying low and taking the day off. I cancelled my afternoon clients, and I’m just resting, which is not easy for me. I have trouble relaxing as I’m always on the go, but my body is trying to tell me something. I think I better listen.

Here are some meals I’ve been enjoying lately. Again, more protein, fewer grains.

Dinner last night…

Spiralized raw zucchini squash with a veggie stir-fry consisting of 1/4 onion, Brussels sprouts, 1 yellow bell pepper, spinach, and tempeh marinated in Braggs. I tossed my veggies in my favorite hummus dressing (Trader Joe’s Smooth and Creamy hummus, 1/2 packet stevia, Dijon mustard, and water to thin).

Breakfast…

Scrambled egg whites (from carton, hence the color. I’m lazy), 2 tortillas, and a blob of hummus the size of my head. Let’s talk tortillas. I wish I could say these were flourless sprouted grain tortillas or brown rice flour tortillas, but they’re not. They are low carb/high fiber tortillas, and I LOVE them. My favorite brand is La Tortilla Factory, and unlike Ezekiel wraps, they do not taste like cardboard, they actually “wrap” without breaking, and they’re super cheap since we buy them in bulk at Costco. I know the ingredient list isn’t perfect, but neither am I. :)

The sofa is calling my name. Later my friends.
