FF- Week 2

Hello all!  It's Foodie Friday!  Yay!  I didn't take nearly as many photos as I would have liked... I had kind of a boring food week.  Not to mention, I totally grubbed out on pizza from Papa Murphy's on Halloween-- which solidified the fact that we absolutely *cannot* have pizza in the house!  I typically have amazing self control, but you get my around pizza and suddenly I'm SHOVELING it down my throat.

Do you have a food you can't resist?  (Please tell me you do!)

1.  Protein Power Bowl- Eggs, plain Chobani, oats, pumpkin- sweet and warm!
2. Metabolism Boosting Smoothie (recipe below
3. A delicious lunch that Garrett made for me!  Peppered Fish, mixed veggies and beans.
4. Okra- completely disgusting, beans, puled chicken on a homemade wheat bun.
5. Homemade Chicken Wild Rice Soup
6. Egg with spinach and chicken breast, melted Daiya on a homemade whole wheat bun
7.  Pumpkin Protein Coffee
8. My favorite- Grapenuts!  With almonds, raisins, chia seed and almond milk.
9. Chobani pancakes with apple rings- topped with peanut butter and cinnamon with a side of scrambled eggs with sweet potatoes.

Kind of a boring food week-- and super high in carbs!  Sheesh!  I wasn't aware of it until I started writing this post... definitely going to need to cut that carb count down next week!

I wanted to share this smoothie recipe with you because it does an amazing job and speeding up your metabolism-- plus it tastes *amazing*

1 banana (preferably frozen) sliced
Handful of Blueberries
1/4 of a Green Apple- diced
1  Tablespoon ginger (I zest it on a micro plane)
1 cup Pineapple Juice (can substitute this for Coconut Water)*
Half of a lemon- squeeze out juice
1 Tablespoon Chia Seed
4 Ice Cubes 
1 1/2 cups Spinach

Blend everything together and enjoy!  
*You may need to add additional juice if it's too thick and not blending properly.

It has an incredibly tart taste that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth!

I also wanted to do another plug for Fit Friends!  There are only 2 more days to sign up to be linked up with a partner for November!
