Just want to start off by saying that if you’re reading this;
I hope you & your loved ones are safe right now!
My thoughts & prayers are with anyone dealing with this storm.
School was cancelled today, so no teaching for me.
I am staying safe inside with mamacakes & being productive with my to do list!
Also want to say thank you for the congrats on yesterdays post
about owning my own business- POWERCAKES LLC!
Along with Jill Hanner’s #plantPOWER POWERCAKES.
Things are really moving in a great direction & I can’t wait to share.
I also want to shout-out to my FitFluential family who is beyond supportive!
Today’s theme for #plantPOWER is Favorite POWERMEAL!
We all know that I LOVE my POWERMEALS!
Definition of a powermeal = a balanced meal with a clean carb, healthy fat,
and a protein source that gives you POWER throughout your day!
They usually look HUGE because they are loaded with a ton of veggies!
Then I add in a protein source & a healthy fat!
I post most of my daily powermeals through Instagram!
Yesterday I posted my
“This is what a #plantPOWERED PE Teacher eats for lunch!”
*Collard wraps stuffed with organic black beans, avocado, & sautéed veggies
with a side of the extra avocado (I never let this go to waste) & some raw tomatoes!
I blanched the collard leaves in hot water on the stove for 1 minute
& then immediately put them into cold water!
Stored them in a plastic baggie over night,
then stuffed & wrapped up in foil for lunch!
Before my #plantPOWER lunch;
I started my day with quick 5am lift sesh (chest & triceps),
then off to teach, zumba with my students,
& then a little more cardio after school
(for no reason other than I had so much energy!)
After my on-the-go day; this POWERMEAL was EPIC!!
*channeling my inner Heather with some Roasted KALE CHIPS
(chopped kale sprayed with coconut oil spray
with sprinkle of nutritional yeast & Himalayan Pink Salt
into the oven for about 15 minutes at 350)
Topped with red onion, kalamata olives, roasted brussels,
roasted kabocha squash, sundried tomatoes,
& protein packed Kale Hemp Pesto!
Oh. em. gee.
this combo was amazinggggg.
