SNAP Challenge: Day 2 – Snack & Lunch & Pre/Post Workout

My “snack” today was the other half of my banana, which I ate about 1 hour after breakfast on my way out the door.

My lunch today was something pretty different, for myself at least. I had one cup of quinoa, 3/4 cup red kidney beans, 1/2 cup spinach (thawed) 1 tsp olive oil, a little garlic salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. It was actually very filling and tasted alright, kinda bland though. I realized that today I probably wont eat any meat…which makes this the first day in my entire life without eating any meat…weird.
