Day 1 (8/14)
Breakfast:  Reese’s Power Cups for Breakfast (a recipe from my fitness guru)! (time:  10:00 am):

  • 2 Tbsp Almond Butter (I like Justin’s)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I like Prograde Vanilla)
  • 1 heaping Tbsp raw cocoa powder (a superfood) (Navitas Naturals from Wegman’s…it is in the vitamin aisle at the Princeton Wegman’s)
  • 1 Cup of Almond Milk (I use Almond Dream unsweetened original) (I use this as it has calcium citrate in it vs. calcium carbonate; I’m susceptible to kidney stones and I’ve been advised to stay away from calcium carbonate in my calcium supplements)
  • 1 Tbsp of flax seed oil (for a dose of Omega-3) (the original recipe calls for a squeeze…which is what I would recommend…I think I used too much) (I used the serving size…a bit too much)
  • Ice (I’ve been making it without ice though and it still tastes great).

Cup of Chai Green Tea, Multi-Vitamin and Krill Oil

Lunch (12:45 pm):

Grilled Chicken, grilled peaches, roasted beets and cauliflower on a bed of romaine.  Homemade dressing of EVOO, EVOO with meyer lemon (yummy…available at Weaver’s at the West Shore Farmer’s Market in Lemoyne, PA), Balsalmic & Red Wine Vinegar, freshly grated pepper,  freshly grated Pink Sea Salt with Garlic and a couple of squeezes of flax oil.  Apple.
