A Sandwich a Day.....

Keeps the doctor away?? Not medically proven, but it works for me!

Pretty much all the meals today were typical in our house. Breakfast consisted of my Fav smoothie: Banana, Strawberries, Blueberries, almond Milk, all natural peanut butter, Vanilla Whey protein powder and flax seed. The picture does not really do it justice, but it is SO good, and always keeps me full until lunch time! This gives me tons of my fruit servings for the day, protein, calcium and fiber, such a powerful meal in one container!

Lunch was....drum roll please.......a Wrap aka Sandwich! This wrap was really yummy today. It was a flax seed flat bread (try saying that 5 times fast), spinach/artichoke hummus, greens, turkey breast and swiss cheese. This is a normal wrap i make, but the new hummus i got makes it even better. I think all hummus flavors are great on sandwiches though.
After lunch the hubs and I decided to walk over to Stabucks since it was so nice out and get a little treat for ourselves, the ever famous Pumpkin Spice latte! I don't really go to Starbucks, but these things are amazing! I have been wanting one since they came back but had to wait for the perfect fall today, and i think today was a good one!
Today's workout was one of my personal Favs....BodyPump! This is one of the many Les Mills classes they offer at my gym, and it is strictly strength training. It incorporates a high number of reps, so you get a good cardio work out too, and I am always really sore afterwards. If you dont take this class consistently you will not be able to walk for several days after, so i try to take this class atleast 1 or 2 times a week.This is one of the classes i want to continue taking while doing Insanity, so i can keep building muscle.

For dinner we thawed out some chicken legs and grilled them along with some orange and yellow peppers and portabello mushrooms. I also cooked some quinoa to add some protein and mixed it all together. It turned out great, and I have extra quinoa to put on a salad or wrap for tomorrow.

So that is my typical day, i just got an email that my Insanity Shipped today so I am hoping to have it by Friday or early next week!! Woo hoo!


  1. Can't wait for Travis' before picture! Jessica if going to make me all your sandwiches so they better be good!

  2. That smoothie sounds delish! Can you share your recipe??

  3. I'm so glad you asked! I make this for 2 people, so i will try and cut it down per serving....1 serving: 1/2 a banana, 3-4 strawberries, handful of blueberries, 1 cup of almond milk (or liquid of your choice), tablespoon of peanut butter, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder and 2 tablesspoons of ground flax seed. Add a handfull of ice, and blend together!
