I was sort of shocked this morning when I found out today was a rest day. We just had a rest day on Sunday but since yesterday’s workout was so intense I decided today I would focus on my diet and rest my muscles.
I opened my Catching Fire: 30 Day Challenge meal plan and decided to start my day with some oatmeal, I tend to have oatmeal every morning because I feel it sustains me for countless hours. I added pecans, cinnamon, banana and a little bit of almond milk to my oatmeal. I like to use the recipes given to me from the guide and also create my own that are a little different.
I’m a vegan so I do have to modify some of the recipes to be vegan friendly but it’s not too hard. For lunch I had a green papaya salad with tomatoes, green beans, peanuts and a vinaigrette dressing. I found the salad very satisfying at the time due to the peanuts, but by the time I got home from work, about two hours after lunch, I was starving.
I made myself a protein smoothie for a snack. I used 1 banana, ½ cup frozen organic mango, 1 scoop of vanilla chai Vega protein powder and 1 ½ cups of almond milk. Vega protein powder is all plant based and doesn’t have any added sugar so it has become my favorite protein powder. I blended my smoothie for about 1-2 minutes and it was ready. It was simple to make and totally hit the spot.
I have also been trying to increase my water intake during the Challenge; I have been bringing my own water bottle to work and refilling it as often as I can to stay hydrated. I believe my diet and the amount of water I drink during this 30 day Challenge greatly helps my results.
