A Typical Day in Meatless May
For all my hunnies and hubbies participating in Meatless May or thinking about joining us on this little journey, I totally get it can be hard to think of things to keep you full and energized throughout your work day. But it doesn’t have to be! At Skinny Souping we are dedicated to fast, easy meals. So here is a one-day meal plan- along with some quick recipe outlines- straight from my own typical workday during this first week of Meatless May!
Brown-Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal with Nuts and Berries
½ cup of quick dry oats with 1 cup of water, microwave
Add 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts or pecans
Add 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries/blueberries
Add light brown sugar and cinnamon to taste
Peanut-Butter Protein Smoothie
1 whole banana
1 tablespoon of PB2
1 tablespoon of Chocolate PB2
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
1 cup of Original Unsweetened Almond Milk (might have to add more as you blend)
Ice, ice baby!
*Use your favorite blender to mix and enjoy!
Lightly Salted Edamame (unshelled)
½ cup to 1 whole cup of Edamame
*Can be found in the frozen foods section at Trader Joe’s!
