So I’ll be honest, I’ve been great with the workouts, but not so much with the nutrition. I’ve had a lot of social situations in the past two weeks that include eating out and drinking. Even when trying to order healthy, eating out at a restaurant often includes a lot of processed food, extra fat and sugar, and salt. While the next week seems to look a lot like the previous weeks (social outings 3 nights as well as traveling next weekend), I’m going to focus on being as clean as possible both when I’m not out and when I’m out.
One way I’m going to do that is to find healthy alternatives to food I want. For instance, tonight I’m stuck at home with one of the worst blizzards in NYC. Blizzards are the perfect time to catch up on TV shows and enjoy hot chocolate. So my hot chocolate is the healthiest hot chocolate possible, Shakeology Hot Chocolate. For those of you who don’t know, Shakeology is my life saver. It is a nutrient dense superfood that you can use as a meal replacement. I am obsessed to say the least. I have it daily, usually for breakfast, as a smoothie with almond milk and some frozen fruit. Tonight I decided to try it as hot chocolate. It isn’t as good as hot chocolate in a packet (yet), though I know it is way healthier and will help with my sugar cravings tonight (which have been really strong the past few days) and keep me full.
Heat a cup of unsweetened almond milk on the stove top.
In a mug mix together 1 1/2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon of steevia, 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites, one packet of vanilla shakeology (mix well).
Add the hot almond milk to the mug mixture and mix well.
