WIAW: Breakfast Fruit Wrap

Peas and Crayons

Ok, so fitness is dominating my week, in case you wanted to know.  Sunday I ran.  This is unheard of, seeing that I usually don't usually exert myself on this day.  Just out of laziness, mostly.

But I took my formerly lazy self to the park and busted out 3 miles.  Followed by another 3 miles on Monday (Who am I??).  Of course, I had a super intense boot camp workout today.

I tell ya, summer clothes are motivation for my fitness.

On to more pressing matters-Food!
Pre-Breakfast Breakfast: Cereal
You know I gotta put something in mah belly before 5 a.m. boot camp.  Quaker Oatmeal Squares have been doing the trick lately.  The brown sugar flavor is my favorite cereal on the planet Earth.  I ate a handful or so of these lil' squares before heading out.

 Breakfast Time: Fruit Wrap & Coffee
I got this idea from Pinterest a while back, but had yet to actually try it until this week.  It was so good that this was my second time eating it for breakfast this week (I also had it on Saturday).  Here's what it looks like on the inside:
To make the wrap, just smear your tortilla (I use Ole's Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Tortilla) with some peanut butter (or almond butter is really good, too), sprinkle some granola and top with strawberry and banana slices.  Roll it up.  Holy yum!  So healthy and filling ;)

Morning Snack: Yogurt that is Greek
I've been hitting the Greek yogurt pretty hard for the past few weeks.  It fills me up and is usually pretty awesome tasting.  I threw the last of my banana nut granola in the carton after the pic.

Lunch: Sandwich, Veggies & Fruit 
It's the return of bento box lunches!  Today's box included turkey, provolone & spinach on a bagel thin with a side of cucumber and roasted red pepper hummus & Rainier cherries.  Well rounded & tasty!

 Afternoon Snack: Nuts
Snacked on some pecans in the p.m. to stave off hunger.  Yay, healthy fats!

Things were going pretty good, nutritionally speaking, then this happened.
I don't even care that my legs look ginormous on the internet.  It's all about the beer, y'all.

After my super fun dip in the pool, it was time for a birthday celebration (not mine).

Dinner: Genghis Grill Bowl 
I scored a free appetizer coupon from my last visit, so I suggested we try it for my Ma's birthday.  I had a yummy bowl full of veggies, steak, chicken and shrimp and some brown rice.  Yum yum!

Then I embarrassed my family by taking lots of photos.  Here are a few:
 Home just in time to get my bum back in the pool and shove a cookie bar in my face.  We ate early, because we are old people.
Why, yes, my brother wrote "nanna-nanna boo-boo, stick your head in doo-doo" on my chalkboard.  Because he's 12.  Well, he's physically 28, but 12 at heart ;)

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I am a huge fan of greek yogurt, and I eat it pretty much every day. Yum. Your fruit wrap looks amazing, reminds me to get some strawberries before they go out of season
