Salad & Smoothie 9/24 Lunch

I interchange my recipes so that the same food all week long isnt boring.

For lunch today I had a green smoothie w/ a salad.
The smoothie is raspberries, baby kale, baby spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, 1C coconut milk/almond milk mixture, 1 tbsp ground flax seed and 1 tbsp chia seeds.
The salad is a base of romaine and baby spinach, topped w/ red onions, black beans, avocado and broken up pieces of the corn patties. Topped with salsa.

I also splurged today and went to my favorite coffee shop. I got an iced latte w/ almond milk. They make their almond milk homemade and its super delicious!

Next Week Meal Plan

This weekend will be busy with exams, so I made the meal plan super early when I had a bit of time.

I am currently unsatisfied with this weeks meal plan. I had sniffles, more of an allergy, but I feel in due to this dairy & meat laden week my allergies have turned into a full blown cold. I haven’t gotten a cold in over two years!!!!! That meal plan is probably the last healthy one Ive made and I am not feeling well from it. Need to add more veggies & fruits. I rarely eat meat and this was too heavy on chicken. And dairy… I shouldn’t be eating dairy/soy anyways since I am allergic! I was doing very good with my vegan, soy free, gluten free plans and I felt amazing, unstoppable! Now my body is getting sick. Grr. Unfortunately its the food I have and I cant afford to trash it. Goes to show what you put in is a direct correlation to how you feel, how you react, how you focus, perform, etc.
Hopefully next week will be better:

B: Protein green smoothie: spinach, frozen berries, almond or coco milk, scoop pea protein powder (vegan), spirulina

L: Salad base topped w/ craisins, avocado, carrots and these corn cakes:

I will grill the corn and then chop it off the ear.

D: Small steamed or baked sweet potato topped w/ crunchy pb, cinnamon & granola. Served w/ small salad.

Snacks: Hummus, popcorn, nuts/dry fruit

I’m already longing for next week.
