WIAW-Raw Cookie Dough..and its healthy!

by Chelcie on March 7, 2012

Hi friends!

Happy WIAW!

I don’t think I did too good of a job loading up on veggies yesterday..but what I did eat was delicious at least!

Breakfast

Technically part one of my breakfast was at 6:45am on my way to dance practice…it was a non-fat misto and banana from starbucks..still loving my starbucks giftcard Nanny!

Part 2 was when I got home around 8:30

I had a little piece of leftover veggie and goat cheese fritatta (see there are my veggies!) and an english muffin with some raspberry jam..we are SERIOUSLY hurting for food

While I was eating breakfast and blog reading, I came across protein balls on Brittany‘s blog and spur of the moment decided to make my own version!

I call them Raw Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Balls

I pretty much followed her recipe exactly and just made a few changes to make them taste like oatmeal raisin cookie dough!

In a bowl I combined

  • 5 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tbsp rolled oats
  • 5 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

All stirred up and formed into 10 bite-sized balls. After I immediately ate one (GAH JUST LIKE COOKIE DOUGH OMGEEEZ) I stuck the rest in the fridge to harden up a bit

so freaking good! (please excuse my chipped nail polish -__-)..one of these was a perfect pre-work out snack yesterday!

Lunch

On my way home from the gym I stopped to get a protein shake from this place at my school called Main St Nutrition..its basically just a protein smoothie shop I guess?..they have a TON of different flavor combinations and I always get really overwhelmed when I go there cause I can never decide!

Yesterday I kept it simple and went for a chocolate banana shake

Picture taken mid-walk back to my apartment..multi tasking at its finest

I also had another dough ball because I still felt a wee bit hungry after drinking this

Snack

A few hours after lunch I had a chobani before going to starbucks to study for a little while

I LOVE the mango flavor..I am also just obsessed with mangos in general so maybe thats why? But its really good!

Dinner

Last night I went out for “family dinner” with girls in my sorority to Homegrown! aka best restaurant in Newark!

I always switch between the same few items every time I go to Homegrown and last night it was vegetarian chili and deconstructed sushi!

So freaking good.

and naturally after dinner we made a fro-yo stop..the amount of times I’ve gotten fro-yo in the past 2 week is absurd people

I got a combo of chocolate, cookies and cream, and tart fro yo with strawberries, banana, mini m&m’s, pb chips, coconut, and sprinkles. I could eat fro yo every day for the rest of my life.

I’ve got a pretty busy day ahead of me including an exam, gym trip, and room decorating (for my little!)

I hope everyone has a happy hump day!

Question for ya!: Do you normally order the same thing when you go to your favorite restaurant or do you like to try new items?

Normally I always switch it up between a couple favorites..sometimes I wish I was more adventurous but I get so stuck on my favorite items!
