Post Workout Goodies and a Green Monster Salad

I died today. No really, I did. Do you remember the workout I posted not too long ago? The workout that claims to do wonders in only 4 mins? Yea, I did another round of that this morning, and it took about 20 minutes to get myself off the floor. Nauseous and sweating like a pig I was. BUT, it was still a killer workout. So what do you eat after such a hard core workout? (Umm...don't judge, I want you to try the workout and tell me how you pan out) After adding some randomness to a bowl, this is what I came up with:



This yummy concoction is made up of one whole banana, cinnamon Life cereal (just a little), raw sunflower seeds, a spoonful of Trader Joe's crunch PB with whole flax seeds, and a splash (literally a splash) or organic soy milk. WOW! This was so darn yummy! Filled me up completely! My son was even grabbing what he could out of the bowl while I was trying to eat. Definitely my new post-workout meal.

Now after having such a a great workout and breakfast, I didn't want to ruin it with lunch. So here is what I ate. It's my Green Monster Salad. Tons of goodness here. I made one for me and the hubs, and we gobbled them up in no time.




This salad included: spinach, broccoli, green peppers, green onions, chickpeas, radishes, almonds, soy nuts, pumpkin kernels, dried cranberries, green apples, red grapes,  raw sunflower seeds, and I topped mine off with Annie's Natural Lite Goddess dressing. My hubs went with French (eww). Needless to say, this salad was flipping awesome! We are big salad eaters in this house. I used to make them all the time with chicken, but since we don't buy meat anymore, I had to figure out a way to make them filling. The chickpeas definitely help with that. I don't go by any sort of recipe, I just mix together whatever we have around the house. Keeps a bit of variety going!
