Powercakes’ Powermeal Challenge is just about halfway over! If you missed my round up of days 1-5 you can check them out here. I actually messed up one of the days but let’s just pretend you didn’t notice! Here are my powermeals from days 6-10:
Day 6: yellow (spaghetti squash with homemade tomato sauce)
Day 7: purple (smoothie made with frozen berries, VEGA Energizing Smoothie in Bodacious Berry, and almond milk)
Day 8: pre-workout (VEGA Energizing Smoothie in Tropical Tango mixed with water)
Day 9: post-workout (I ran just before lunch so my post-workout meal was a veggie sandwich with a side of more veggies and a handful of almonds)
Day 10: power breakfast (Chocolate Covered Katie’s blueberry pie pancakes topped with nut butter and sugar-free syrup)
Two reasons why I love Dean (there are more reasons but these ones rank near the top of my list 😉 ):
1. I was HANGRY (hungry + angry) after work tonight. Not a good combination. I called Fresh, ordered their Holiday Wrap to go (tempeh, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado, carrot, jicama, vegan garlic “mayo”) and went with Dean to pick it up. Once it was in my hands I was ravenous and we realized there was nowhere to sit outside to eat. Since Dean is always prepared for any and all situations, he pulled a lounge chair out of his trunk and set me up to eat my wrap on the sidewalk.
Now that’s class.
2. I was going through Dean’s pictures on his phone looking for the above photo of me (eating my wrap) so I could send it to myself and share it with you all (since it’s so flattering) and came across this little gem:
Yes, that would be Dean taking a self-taker photo in the change room at Nike. He was so embarrassed but claimed the lighting was so good that he just had to take a picture. I nearly died. It’s always me taking self-takers and progress pics so I thought this was super funny.
How can you not love a man who cares about your comfort while eating and takes pictures of himself in change rooms?!
What do you usually eat pre/post-workout?
Have you tried tempeh? Are you a fan?
