E2 28 Day Challenge Day 3

by Rachel

Ever since I started training for my triathlon, I am drinking coffee every day. The only creamer options at work are the little creamer cups which I cannot stand anymore! So this week I'm using Westsoy Unsweetened Vanilla Soymilk in my coffee - which does add a little bit to the calorie count - but not too much.

Day 3

1212 cals (182g carbs, 31g fat, 49g protein, 33g fiber)


Had 1/2 cup shredded wheat, 1/4 cup Kashi nuggets (like grapenuts), 1/4 cup granola (Ancient Grains)
Added 1 banana on top, and poured on 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk


Used my FAVORITE all time bread - Trader Joe's Complete Protein Bread
slathered on 4 TBSP hummus, topped with sprouts, arugula/spinach salad, and cucumber slices
Very nice, crisp and easy lunch!
Side of l'orange please :)

E2 Basics Stir Fry over Brown Rice

This is the first time that I've enjoyed cooking and eating stir fry, I think...
1. Drained and sliced a block of extra firm tofu - seasoned with pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and Braggs
2. Chopped up a BUNCH of veggies, and cooked up 2 dry cups of brown rice
3. Heated up wok with 1 tsp coconut oil
4. Added tofu to wok, cooked for 3-4 minutes
5. Added (in order) onion slices, mushrooms, bell pepper, celery, broccoli, and garlic

To serve, I put .5 cup rice in a bowl, scooped on 1 cup of stir fry, and then squirted a couple squirts of Braggs on top.
I also made a quick sauce out of 1 cup veggie broth, some squirts of Braggs, and 1 tsp agave - I poured a tablespoon or so on top of it all, and served!

Paul and I really enjoyed this - 6yo son was able to eat it (but I don't think he really enjoyed it), and 14yo son found the mushrooms and got grossed out! Paul fished out the mushrooms, and then he was able to stomach his meal... :)

Sliced Apples with Lemon Juice Vanilla Avocado Banana Ice Cream

I decided to try the ice cream from - whipped it up in the blender, and put it in the freezer... but I didn't do it soon enough! It didn't freeze all the way by the time everyone wanted dessert, so it was more like vanilla yogurt instead :)
We topped it with sunflower butter and/or raspberry fruit spread - it was pretty good! I don't think it was a HUGE hit for the boys, but they did eat it - I probably won't make it again.
