WIAW: Last Day of Veg Pledge

I made it through my veg pledge!  As you may remember, there was that social occasion slip-up, but I’d say the 28 days were still a success.  Today is actually the last day of my not-so-challenging challenge, so a lot of the meals I show here will be repeated today. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly WIAW roundup!

Pre-gym: rice cake and SuperPump Max*


*Yes, I feel silly saying I actually tried something called “SuperPump Max,” but I actually kind of liked it.  This was my third time sampling this particular product, which Muscle & Fitness so kindly sent, and I’ve had a great workout every time.  I think it’s the caffeine more than anything, which can be helpful at 5:15 a.m.

Breakfast:egg whites, brown rice, rotel, and sauteed onion


Snack: half a Core Power shake and 7 almonds

Lunch: salad (apple, dried cherries, cabbage, spinach, carrot, and natural lite honey mustard) & 2 tsp pb for dessert

wiaw    peeb

I weigh my dried cherries; those are dangerously good!

Snack: again, the other half of that Core Power shake and 7 almonds


Dinner: 2 homemade bean burgers (inhaled one before serving) and roast Brussels sprouts

dinner    wiaw

Snack: I don’t know how I was still hungry, but I was.  I followed up with another rice cake and peanut butter.

That’s a lotta’ yum!

    Roasted brussel sprouts are the best…so delicious!

  23. Your roasted brussel sprouts look HEAVENLY. (And I weigh a lot of my food, too. It is great for recipe creation, and also keeping portions in check ;))

    My favorite bean burger is this one:

    [I’ve made a Mexican version, but I’m not sure that I ever posted it.]

    Boy, you uh… measure your salad out? I didn’t see anything about an ED in your about me section, perhaps that should be next on your list. Wishing you luck in this journey.
