Today's Eats

Today was just one of those days filled with delicious food. I started off my morning with 2 protein pancakes. I adapted the recipe from my friend Meredith. It can be found here on her blog. 

The only thing I changed to her recipe was I added a blended banana (so it was completely liquid), and I added 2 tsp. agave nectar instead of stevia. I also put my 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a food processor so it was more like oat flour than oatmeal. It is such delicious and filling breakfast. I had 2 of them! I had already consumed one by the time I took this picture... I just couldn't wait.

And for lunch I had the rest of my Avocado Egg Salad, and a Pineapple Mango Green Smoothie!!

The ingredients were as follows:

1 Banana (unfrozen)
1/2 c. Water
1 c. Frozen Pineapple and Mango Cubes
1 Heaping T. of Ground Flax Seed
2 Huge Handfuls of Spinach

First I blended the water and the banana together to create a liquid base. Next, I added the frozen pineapple and mango. This came in a back from Target; it also has strawberries in it, I just didn't put them in this smoothie. Then once all that was blended, I dump in the flax and spinach. Ta-Da!

My dinner was truly something to behold. I made it with my adorable mom and we had such a great time stuffing ourselves on delicious fruits and veggies. I will post pictures of my dinner tomorrow, but as for now I will just tell you what we ate: cooked spinach (always with salt and vinegar), homemade guacamole that we dipped raw carrots in, leftover mediterranean chicken, and finally watermelon mango salsa!! The salsa is divine and I will post the recipe and pictures tomorrow.

Oh, and I almost forgot, we topped off dinner with a bit of dark chocolate. A perfect day.

I fit in a 6 mile run today at a 9:17 mile pace. Felt great to run after taking a week off from sickness!



  1. LAUREN! I didn't know you had a blog! Good for you. You have great things to share. And your photography is really good! I think I recognize those flowers. Seeing them in your post made me so happy! :)

    1. Of course I had to include those flowers! They are WAY too gorgeous not too! My mom and I were actually just admiring the lilies because they've opened up so much, and they look so big and beautiful now! Thank you :)

  2. Love that last shot, Lauren! Miss you and your mommy!

    1. You'd be so proud of me. I photoshopped about 5 pictures to get that last shot because I didn't have a shot like that. :)

  3. This was SO good!! I made it for me and my 2-year-old confiscated it. I'd say that's a success! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Aw I'm so glad :) haha sorry about your 2-year-old stealing it though. looks like next time you'll have to double the recipe!!
