Finally, I Found A Whey!

And the winner of the POM voucher is…….. well, you’ll have to wait til the end of this post to see!! 😉

Whew! What a day, what a day.  Just got in from a bit of hill training.  This time it was with the Team Myles group and I must say, really different then what I’ve been doing.  I’ve been giving it my all up steep hills that are 300-400 metres and what we did tonight was basically running up a gradual incline of maybe 200 metres. 

I was pretty hungry when I got home.  Hubby “waited” for me to eat. AKA waited til I got home so that I would cook for him. ;)  He got an Amy’s burger while I popped a couple portabella’s in the oven.  I love a good ‘shroom burger simply cooked with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar & a sprinkle of oregano. Mmmm mmm!

My burger was on a whole wheat bun with a handful of baby spinach and a good smear of light cream cheese.  

Side veggie stir fry  – broccoli, match stick carrots, onion, snow peas and bean sprouts with a dose of pad thai sauce thrown in at the end.

I really thought that my run tonight would be a lot longer/more strenuous so I ended up fuelling up waaaay more than necessary.  Whole wheat toast & dark chocolate almond butter.


Plus, a delicious green smoothie. One of the best I’ve made ever actually. It was light, almost fluffy and really good.  Strangely what made it good was the protein powder I used.  I’m not usually a fan of protein powder, every single on that I’ve tried has tasted chalky and gross.  But, when Prairie Naturals offered to let me chose something to review I went straight for their powders in hopes that maybe, just maybe, I’d finally find a good one.   Score! I chose the Lean Whey – Strawberry Raspberry Cream and it’s FANTASTIC.  They sent a huge container, which I don’t think will last very long.  Full review to come. (And maybe something for one of you lucky readers too.)

Rewinding now, to my work day.   Mid-morning I took a little snack break and finished off the homemade hummus.  Hubby was a huge fan so no doubt I’ll be making another batch on the weekend.


Lunch was a salad – spinach, mixed field greens, carrots & strawberries topped with a balsamic/maple syrup drizzle.  Deeelish!

And a bowl of the left over tomato pesto pasta.
Another successful day as a vegetarian.  There wasn’t much “me” time unless you count the hill training.  I’m sorta inclined to count it. 😉

Last but not least, the winner of the POM voucher is Sonya at Eyes On The Hourglass!
