My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Smoothies, Smoothies, Smoothies!

Hello everyone. Well, I sent hubby off to work with 14 days’ worth of frozen breakfasts and suppers, and a bag of home made whole-wheat buns. To read about this, click here.

Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals! Click here for my guide to meal planning.

I have lost another 2 lbs! Woo hoo! Now I’m on a roll, I started a food journal so that I can keep track of my calories. I’m used intermittent fasting now where my first meal of the day is 11 am and the last meal of the day being before 7 pm.

I now make sure that I drink at least 2 litres of water a day and to help me remember, I put it in a 2L jug

It’s been 5 days since I’ve been doing this and I have so much more energy.

I also started a Yoga program. This week I did the very beginners workout and next week I’ll be graduating to a 30-day Yoga program with Adriene. My body feels amazing after the workout, which encourages me to do it again the next day.

The next two weeks for me are smoothies for breakfast! I found this blog that has some lovely smoothies that are under 150 calories and I add a scoop of protein powder to them which adds another 130 calories. I chose three smoothies to try:

Strawberry/Banana Smoothie
Tropical Green Smoothie
Good Morning Smoothie
And for an afternoon pick-me-up, I’ve chosen Coconut Mocha Java Frappe.

All my suppers are under 500 calories. The meals that don’t have a link to them are from my recipe book The Looney Spoons Collection which are a lighter version of our favourite foods.

Here’s this week’s meal plan:

Monday : Leftovers from Chinese takeout

Tuesday : Shrimp & Corn Chowder

Wednesday : Vegetarian Shepherd’s pie from my freezer

Thursday : Won Ton Soup (I’m going to make a double batch and freeze it for another meal)

Friday : Pasta Alla Norma. This vegetarian meal froze really well, so I’m going to make it part of hubby’s truck meals for next time.

Saturday : Thai Prawns and Rice

Sunday : Butter Rissotto
