Day 7 of Clean Eating (except the cookie)!

Today I opted to mix-up meals from different days from last week. For breakfast I had a smoothie, but I took the recipe from the Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook. It was a mixture of dry oats, milk, protein powder, peanut butter, frozen banana and flax seed.

Before church I had one of the Nutty Maple-Cinnamon Bar for Snack 1.

For lunch I had leftovers from dinner last night, which included quinoa and a smothered mushroom. The mushroom is topped with salsa, a little green onion, cheese, and sesame seeds. It is cooked in the oven for 10 minutes at 425 degrees. On the side I had some snap peas.

I ran 4.7 miles on the treadmill and I was starving. For snack 2 I had an apple with some peanut butter.

For dinner I ate a large salad, some steamed vegetables, and some tofu scrambles with flax meal and some Dijon mustard.

Because of my long run I wanted some extra sugar. I decided to make the "You Got Peanut Butter in My Chocolate" Cookies from Dreena Burton's Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan. However, I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of spelt flour and I didn't use the cocoa powder, so they weren't chocolate cookies. These weren't part of the Clean Eating plan, but they are so good.
I have loved following week 1 of the Clean Eating plan, so I am going to take on week 2 as well. I think 2 weeks of the plan will make it easier to discuss the benefits that I have observed. Have a great Sunday night everyone!
