Clean Eating Monday Week 2

As I mentioned yesterday I decided to follow week 2 of the Clean Eating magazine's meal plan.

Breakfast: I had the smoothie recipe from the magazine. In this is skim milk, non-fat yogurt, frozen berries, and protein powder. When I made this other times this week I used Fage, but today I used a flavored greek yogurt, because my husband doesn't like the plain. Using the flavored greek yogurt was a negative during my Clean Eating because of all the added sugar. However this smoothie still filled me up well.

Snack 1: I LOVE THIS!!! This was on the meal plan. It calls for 4 oz of nonfat plain yogurt (I used Fage), berries, flax meal, and protein powder (I used chocolate). This really tasted like a dessert to me.

Lunch: The plan called for mashed chick peas with mixed veggies and vinaigrette on a wrap. I kept the filling separate from the wrap until lunch, so that the wrap didn't get soggy. This was also very good.

Snack 2: The plan called for 1/3 cup of walnuts and an apple. I decided on only 1/4 cup of walnuts.

Dinner: The meal plan called for a burger or a Boca burger with no bun, topped with 1/4 of an avocado. Also roasted vegetables. I didn't have time to make roasted vegetables, and I didn't know what types of vegetables are best for roasting (any suggestions??) so I had a bowl of peas and a bowl of grapes (which aren't a vegetable, so not really part of the meal plan. I also decided to top the avocado on my Boca burger with some salsa.

This was the salsa I used at dinner. I had never tried it before, but it looked so good because I like artichoke a lot.

After my 1 hour Pilates class I decided I was super hungry (most likely because of my missing bun at dinner). So I had two plain rice cakes with a little all natural peanut butter.

Have a great Tuesday!!

I love yogurt! I tried to freeze soy yogurt last night to make it like frozen yogurt, but it didn't work out too well. It got too icy, but it was worth a shot!

The cookies Aimee posted are great!!! I am a cookie fan so I a fair judge of what is good. I had to freeze Aimee some cookies so she would have some after her clean eating is over. If I didn't they would all be gone.

When it says to mash the chick peas are you doing that? They looked whole and I just was wondering if you mash 'em with a fork or how that works.
Carrots are awesome roasted!
