Welcome to Wednesday, or Hump Day for those so inclined. My grandpa is actually pretty nice about sending a text message when he wakes up (around the 4:15am mark), wishing us a happy hump day. I’m still living off last weekend’s adventures with my sister and reminiscing the delicious food we had.
So, being a foodie, I’m all about trying new spots and the hottest dishes (as long as nothing stares back at me) but my confession to you would be that I rarely do try these fab-looking restaurants and tasty dishes. I talk the talk but end up with a plate of grilled veggies back at mi casa. Sometimes when I do go out, I end up ordering what I think I should order instead of what I really want. Mistake. Anyways, this week has been a bit of a routine affair – packing meals and attempting to save money so that I can splurge when Sarah arrives to roam the city this weekend!
Any other NY blends looking to hang out? Shoot me a note! 🙂 For now, I’ve linked up with Jenn at her ingenious Peas & Crayons party.
A week or so ago I was contacted by PlantFusion about their new simple, easy, and delicious protein powders. In its own words, “PlantFusion combines 4 of the world’s most potent plant protein sources, fortified with key amino acids and digestive enzymes to create an uncompromising fusion of taste, potency, and digestability all in one.” Now that sounds pretty legit to me, doesn’t it?
I was quite intrigued by the idea of their and offered to test them out. In fact, I had been considering protein powders or breakfast combinations like Carnation Instant Breakfast (something I used to drink way back in the day), so this was perfect timing. Chocolate was by far my favorite, probably because of my
childhood all-time love for chocolate milk.
Flavors – Chocolate, Vanilla, unflavored, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Raspberry
Usually I choose to drink the powder with unsweetened almond milk, lowfat milk, or even a little water. Sadly my work schedule doesn’t allow me to use the blender in the morning but I’m looking forward to the weekend when I can throw one of these in with ice cubes and a frozen banana or maybe some greek yogurt for an even more filling breakfast or post-workout snack.
*PlantFusion provided me with these samples but all opinions are those of my own.
One lucky reader can win a 1lb bottle of any flavor of PlantFusion. All you need to do is like PlantFusion on Facebook (Twitter too if you happen to have a Twitter account) and leave a comment of which flavor you would be most interested to try!
- Lunch – salad (lettuce/chicken) with dipping sauces of course, carrots, and chicken broth
- Snack #1 – apple
- Snack #2 – KIND Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate bar
- Dinner – leftover lo mein, which sadly was NOT as good as it was on Sunday. Guess I’m just not the leftover type of gal.
- Dessert – Death by See’s Candy. (Juuuust kidding mom 🙂 ) But I did realize that not eating enough protein during the day lead to a hungry and semi-stressed Kaitlin … therefore inhaling chocolate + milk seemed logical.
I was planning to attend a spin class after work but ended up meeting with one of my Santa Clara boss’s friends. We were in a fancy bar but I ended up with a nice club soda + cranberry as I’m testing out the Dry January.
Also, as of Tuesday, I’m going to try to wean myself off sauce (believe me, I eat more than is humanely possible of ketchup + BBQ sauce + ranch) and some types of sugar. Not really jazzed about how it’s affecting my energy and acne, so it’s worth a shot. I know everything is about moderation, so let’s call this the “Month for Moderation”. At least I’ll try to hold myself accountable now that I’ve shared it across the world wide web.
Thoughts on PlantFusion powders? Tips for filling up during the day and avoiding sugary temptations? Anyone up for a NY blogger meetup this weekend?
