Plant-Based Eating :: Volume II Day 10

Day 10 Volume II

The time has come… today is the last day of my food journaling. I figured 10 days was a good round number and besides, we need to start getting ready for our cross country trip in our RV! Lots and lots of food prep and planning for the week ahead! I hope you have enjoyed the journey as much as I have. Knowing people were “watching” what I was eating forced me to be more creative with my food and I really enjoyed that! Hopefully I will still carry that with me tomorrow, when I’m not going to be blogging it. 😉 As promised in yesterday’s post, I did get 9.5 hours of sleep, and then an hour long nap on the couch. I LOVE Sundays! No workouts. No work. Just some relaxation, reading and watching the History Channel.

I had a Shakeology smoothie for breakfast this morning, cause I had lots of fun stuff to get done! It was water, 1/2 a banana, 1/4 cup of frozen cherries, 10 raw almonds, 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, ice and of course a packet of vanilla Shakeology! Tasted great and lasted me about 3 hours!

For lunch I simply cooked carrots, onions, kale, celery, squash and some egg whites. Mr. Zucchini Runner made some amazing breakfast-style potatoes as well. So good!!

(153 calories, 15 carbs, 10 g fat, 3 g protein) I had a healthier snack when I was more awake… apple with cinnamon, chia seeds, lemon juice and some pecans. (158 calories, 19 carbs, 10 g fat, 2 g protein)

Shockingly, I had an Envirokids bar. 😉 (120 calories, 18 carbs, 5 g fat, 2 g protein)

IMG_3158For dinner I wanted to do something a little more “fancy” and opted to attempt a veggie Mexican lasagna. After all, we did still have 2 more giant zucchini’s to use up… they have just been sitting around, waiting to be productive. IMG_2843

These were locally grown by our friends Melissa and Adam and generously given to us (3 of them, to be exact) while we were at their daughter’s birthday party! SCORE!! I can’t think of anything better for Zucchini Runner to have and enjoy… and have a little fun with… !IMG_3114

I’m sensing my new profile pic for social media… 😉zucchini_runnerZucchini, cashew cream, salsa, mashed kidney beans mixed with some cumin and tomatillo salsa, topped off with corn all layered in a baking dish. (284 calories, 46 carbs, 8 g fat, 12 g protein)

IMG_3164And for my “free” treat of the week? Mr. Zucchini Runner just created one of these for each of us! He is GREAT at throwing things together and making them delicious! It is dark chocolate, Annie’s Cinnamon Bunnies (ground up) and homemade peanut butter – sounds like good run fuel for tomorrow morning!IMG_3170

Thanks for following along on this journey! Now I can add two new recipes I’ve been wanting to add. 🙂

    Thank you!! Following your blog the past 10 days has been fantastic. I signed up to your blog a few weeks ago and there have been so many lovely food ideas. DH does not like me to cook with red meat so I stick to turkey/chicken/fish but would prefer to only have those a couple days per week. My childhood was meat/potatoes so I struggle to find meatless/yummy/kid friendly/quick recipes. Your blog has helped me light the fire to really apply to our meals instead of just wishful thinking especially your salads! Yum! So I thank you for sharing your ideas!
