Rainbows for breakfast

This morning I got in my lower body strength training first thing. I plan on doing elliptical after I get the kids settled.

I made the kids a fun breakfast this morning, then I just ended up eating some myself so as not to waste food. Rainbow pancakes (made with whole wheat flour.)
I didn't add any veggies because I didn't want the warp the colors. How cute are these?!
So that was my carbs for the day. For lunch I was craving ground turkey, but we didn't have any, so I crumbled up a MorningStar Vegan burger and sauteed it with leftover spaghetti squash and broccoli. I added a little low-carb Italian dressing. It turned out really good!
Then something came over me. I had overripe bananas and needed to make banana bread. It smelled so good coming out of the oven. I fell victim to temptation...
(Don't worry--I didn't eat the whole loaf myself! All six of us polished it off. At least I used whole wheat flour and substituted applesauce for the fat.)

After that indulgence I wasn't really in the mood for dinner, so I made myself a protein shake that I am just now finishing off. Chocolate protein powder, peanut butter, ice, water, almond milk, chia seeds, flaxseed oil and spinach. Great way to end the day!
