Happy Monday, y’all! We are back from vacation and somehow more tired than before we went…funny how that is when you have kids! I’m sure the 14-hour drive didn’t help that, either 😉 One of the best parts about grocery pickup is that you can order groceries from anywhere – so I took a few minutes to do our weekly clean eating meal plan and put in our grocery order before we headed home and we were able to pick it up on the way in. Best invention ever – I feel prepared for the week! Here’s our clean eating meal plan for this week:
Since we’ll be headed out on a Spring Break trip soon, I thought I’d pop in to share a few healthy clean eating snacks that we’re taking along for the ride. I love traveling but one of the hardest parts is maintaining a healthy diet while on the road or in the air with limited options available. It can be very limiting while flying especially, since some airports are lacking in healthy options. Bringing your own clean eating snacks is usually the best way to ensure you’re on the right track, of course – which is what we’re doing this time around! I’ve never really prepped this well for travel in the past, but I’m going to be sitting in a car for 13+ hours and don’t want to eat anything unhealthy just because I failed to plan – and also don’t want to feel lethargic all day! Here are some things I’m bringing on our trip for all of us to snack on:
Clean Eating Snack Ideas
We usually grab a bag of trail mix from Costco before trips, but I really wanted something that wasn’t loaded with sodium and had a bit more variety – so I decided to make my own this time! We had a bag of walnuts from Costco already, so I picked up peanuts, pumpkin seeds, and banana chips from the bulk section at Sprouts and added some dark chocolate and raisins to pull this mix together. Sharing the full recipe below!
Happy Monday, y’all! It’s an extra happy week here, since Spring Break is next week and we’re excited for a little R&R at the beach! With that said, this weekly meal plan is a bit more simple than usual – I figured we’d be busy this week getting ready to travel and didn’t want to go crazy with time-consuming recipes. And since I won’t be meal planning next week, I’ll probably take a week off from sharing my weekly meal plan with you guys – but do follow along on Instagram, because I bet I’ll have lots of photos to share! Here is this week’s easy meal plan:
Happy Friday, y’all! Today I’m excited to share my recipe for a vegan green energy smoothie that tastes great AND it’s good for you! Even though I try to sneak some greens in my lunch and dinner every day, I feel like I’m not eating enough fruit or veggies on a daily basis – that’s where this smoothie comes into play. I’m not kidding you when I say I haven’t had that energy slump around 2pm (you know the one I’m talking about) since I started drinking this smoothie for lunch!
