It’s no secret that I’m a serious carb whore.  I love carbs, bread especially.  If I had my way I would eat nothing but bread and pasta every single day, cheese too.

But, this isn’t the MTL Carbie, this is the MTL Veggie and it’s high time I featured a yummy veggie-loaded meal on here.

More often than not I get home from work anywhere between 7:00-8:00pm, later if I’ve been to a Bikram class that night.   This is mainly due to my half-marathon training, since I absolutely detest getting out of bed only to go the gym and then go to work.  So I usually hit the gym after.  Getting home so late usually means I’m in no mood to cook a large meal or even eat one, so my diners are usually pretty light like the one I’m about to show you.

Enter my favorite Banana Berry Green Smoothie

– Big handful of spinach

– 1/2 c. Mixed frozen berries

– 1/2 banana

1 c. Vanilla Almond Milk

Along with a monstrous salad:

Mixed greens with red bell pepper, tomato, avocado, blood orange, and almond slivers topped with a bit of olive oil and white-wine vinegar.  I love mixing avocados with fruit!!

This is actually a pretty common dinner for me as it’s light enough to guarantee I’ll sleep tonight but still substantial to give me the nutrients my body needs. Plus it’s pretty to look at 😉

In other news, I’m excited to announce my lovely friend Tess has finally started up her own fitness blog chronicling her journey to her 2nd(!!) fitness competition.  Here’s a shot from her first one, she came in 2nd in her category:

Do check it out as she posts excellent fitness and nutrition tips.

Well that’s it for me tonight, expect a fun post tomorrow with a Parisian flair.

Bon soir mes amis!
