Happy Hump Day all! Thanks for all the tweets, facebook messages and comments about my recipe being published. It’s pretty cool to me and kind of a big deal for Danica’s Daily LOL. It makes it even better that you all are excited with me. The Cookbook giveaway will be coming up soon to share in the fun!
Pre ~ workout I snacked on a banana then took the train and walked to work. Once there, I PUSHED myself on the Elliptical for 30 minutes treating it like I would a spin class with hills, going as fast as I could, pedaling backwards and of course no hands.
I was surprisingly not hungry until 3 hours later. Since I am focusing on INTUITIVELY eating when my body says it’s hungry, I waited and had breakfast at 10 am.
Taco Egg Muffins ~ I NEVER get tired of them and am glad I froze a few (5 points+)
Lunch today involved my new Chipotle Flour Tortillas and Spicy Black Bean with Chipotle Harissa Hummus!
* 1 Chipotle Flour Tortilla (totally worth 4 points+) ~ thick, doughy, chewy, spicy, good!
* 2 tbsp spicy black bean hummus (1 points+)
* 2 oz Lean Ham and 1 oz Lean Turkey (3 points+)
* 1 slice Jarlsberg Lite Swiss Cheese (1 points+)
* Organic Mixed Greens
Side of pickles!
The BEST WAY to enjoy this spicy hummus wrap…. take 1 bite of the wrap then 1 bite of the pickle!
Huge pile of Organic Mixed Greens topped with 1 Tbsp dried cranberries, 3 candied walnuts and 2 Tbsp TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (4 points+)
I LOVE it when you finish lunch and you think ~ WOW, that was awesome and I am totally FULL!
Snacks for the train ride home (1 points+)
Tonight, I had a BIG craving and it looked a little something like this.
The SECRET INGREDIENT that makes THESE HEALTHY NACHOS awesome is BAKED Extra Thin Mission Tortilla Chips topped with sea salt.
The Husband kept thanking me for the AWESOME Basketball food (He thought I made it for the game….I might have let him just go with that ) (11 points+)
I am feeling a little snacky/hungry so I think I am going to have The Husband peel an orange or two to share for dessert.
OHHHH ~ For those wondering about this week’s Wordless Wednesday. The Husband accidentally made that flower when he was sharpening his pencil for work and sent it to me…..LOVE!
