After the usual 2.5 mile walk with my dogs, it was time for some grubbin’ this morning! I opted for another heaping bowl of cereal, which included a mix of Kashi Heart to Heart and good ol’ Walmart brand “Total” 🙂 I also had some sliced strawberries in the mix, which were delicious.
I poured some Original Almond Milk on top and dug in! I absolutely LOVE almond milk, especially the original flavor. It has just the right amount of sweetness. It is definitely lacking in protein (it has a measly 1g!), but that’s ok, I make up for my protein needs in my other meals just fine! 😉
Today was another cardio day! I get my stitches out of my back this Friday, so next week look for some more creative workouts with strength training!
I opted for the treadmill today and did 50-minutes while watching some morning talk shows. I walked on an incline between 8- 10% for 45 minutes and cooled down for 5 minutes.
Lunch today is simple, yet delicious: An almond butter sandwich on whole wheat bread (with double fiber..watch out!), vanilla Greek yogurt, and an orange.
Last night I made a delicious dinner creation: Potato Tacos!! I’m not a huge meat eater so I thought I’d try putting roasted potatoes on a hard taco shell with some refried beans, corn, and salsa. Yum!
First, I chopped up some red potatoes and placed them in a baking pan (greased with cooking spray).
I seasoned the potatoes with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and drizzled with olive oil.
I baked the taters at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes
I placed 4 taco shells on a piece of tin foil and baked at 325 degrees for about 3-4 minutes, just to get em’ warm and toasty.
I drained a can of corn and opened a can of refried beans. I filled each taco with a mixture of potatoes, corn, and beans.
I topped each taco with some shredded mexican blend cheese, pineapple salsa, and had some sour cream on the side for dipping.
I ate every last bite of this meal…it was awesome!
I have lots of leftovers for tonight…yum!
Which do you like more: soft shell tacos or hard shell tacos?
