No gym needed... WIAW v21

 Hello fellow food stalkers! I hope everyone is having a great week, and if not, you are half way through :o)

I am back for the 2nd week of Veggie Feb. and I am still loving my veggies. I even made a fun filled, 30 degree, 9am planned trip to the farmers market

Check out past WIAW posts... you already are a food stalked so you might as well sneak a peek...

Well Monday was a stressful day for me, I was tired, my class was a disaster, I had issues with my second job... the last thing that was on my mind was working out. Although it was the last thing on my mind I knew it had to get done. So instead of hitting up the gym I made a quick at home circuit to complete before dinner.
repeat for 5 sets 

Well it wasn't a gym work out but it was a decent workout and I felt better after it was over. Here is a look at what I accomplished even though I was not at all in the mood. Brian even came home from work and wanted to go for a run, so we put on the tennis shoes and hit the pavement. I love being able to get outside with him and just relax.

Ok so now on with the food... I know this is the real reason you are here anyways LOL Sunday I ended up spending 5 hours in the kitchen. I made homemade Ricotta Cheese, sour dough bread, strawberry chia jam , my zucchini lasagna and some Goji Chia granola bark (recipe also coming soon) so by the time Monday morning hit I was pretty tired of cooking... well no really just not as creative LOL

I realized I didn't take all of my pictures FAIL but here is a recap none the less... I bet if you close your eyes and think really hard you can imagine what the food looked like that I forgot to photograph LOL

6am- Eggwhites and some of the sourdough bread I made Sunday night. Plus my daily coffee... no cream just some honey and agave.
Pre oven... So yummy 

9:30am- Dried Pineapple,mango, goji and my homemade trail mix- soybeans, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanuts and yogurt covered raisins (all nut roasted and unsalted).  

11:30- and probably my favorite meal of the day. Overnight PB oats with home made strawberry chia jam and a spoon full of All natural PB

2:00- Another FAIL!!! I forgot to to take a picture of my snack. Black beans, sweet potato, avocado and spinach.

4:30- Pre workout nibble on my homemade goji, chia granola bark 
6:30- Brian Grilled some Hawaiian chicken and I made roasted sweet potato chips. The dish was accompanied by some more of the home made sour dough :o) Hey what can I say it was GOOD 
There you have it... a day in the life of Alexis's plate. I was loving my sweet potatoes today... they made it in to two separate meals.  They are packed with potassium and Vitamin A and I think they are just plain tasty.
