What I Ate Wednesday...21 Day fix edition

I ordered the 21 Day Fix Extreme when I was on holiday in Florida this past summer. I played around with it for about 2 weeks after arriving back home in Amsterdam, ya know, getting a feel for the containers, but finally go serious about it two weeks ago. I am glad I did! I feel great and it really has helped, but I will go into more detail on that in my wrap up post next week. 

For today, here is what one day of eating has looked like for me, while completing the 21 Day Fix. Yesterday was a particularly rainy day and I had errands to run....

Morning Coffee! I don't do my coffee 21 day fix approved. I can't. I love it with honey and coconut oil. It is still healthy because I use just a tablespoon of honey, which is local raw honey, I use it medicinally for my allergies. Regardless of what people say, it works, my husband and I did a little test of it in the early spring and I have to have the honey, I feel it is better than popping allergy meds all the time. I add in a tablespoon of coconut oil as this keeps my digestive track in check, and a little bit of unsweetened almond milk. It is delicious and is all around good for me and makes me happy.

Green eggs...this is one green container full of eggs plus a half green container of tomatoes and onion. I take one egg and 4 egg whites (which makes 2 red) and I blend them together with the spinach, then I add in the tomato and onion. I add a bit of a great clean chili sauce for a little spice. 

I was still a bit hungry after the eggs so I had a peanut butter banana multigrain wrap. Just 1 tsp of peanut butter and enough banana sliced to fit in a purple container. This was just about one small banana.
Post workout I had a protein bowl. This never looks appetizing so I will just post a picture of my protein powder ha!.

I love this because for a protein powder it is fairly clean and gives me that post workout boost. I use one scoop in 3/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk. I whisk it with a fork to blend and it is thick and creamy, like a pudding almost. It is amazing. 

A few hours later this guy was staring me in the face...
I got it the other day at Zaanse Schans, which I will tell you more about later this week. It was delicious, cost me a yellow, but so worth it!

After that I had to run some errands, one of which included the grocery store and I've been obsessed with cottage cheese lately so I had one little container...

After that I was feeling tired and lazy thanks to the rain so I curled up on the couch with a small tea and Suits. I am so in love with this show...anyone else?!

No sugar, no cream, just tea. Yum, yum.

For dinner, because it was raining we went with a 21 day fix approved stew...
This is the beef and butternut stew, but I substitute with pumpkin since that is what I can find here. I added in a little Parmesan to make 1 green, 1 red, one blue. 

And...because I still needed a purple and a green I made this cute little protein mug cake...

It consists of some homemade pumpkin puree, a little spinach (I combined the puree and the spinach to make one green), the other half of the banana from earlier in the day, and an egg white and a 1/4 scoop of protein powder as a "flour". It was super yummy and creamy on the bottom.

So, what yummies have you been munching on?

  1. I love to make my son our version of the peanut butter and banana wrap. He's allergic, so I use sunbutter. I'm intrigued by this protein mug cake. Sounds delicious yet healthy. My favorite snacks are sunbutter in medjool dates, avocados with sea salt and veggies in hummus.

  2. That all looks great! I am currently doing weight watchers, but had contemplated the 21 day fix before settling on WW!
