Addicted to Results 4/14

Hemp Protein Green Smoothie

Time for another Addicted to Results challenge at Canton Club. I will be using the blog as a food log.  I started the day with a Hemp Protein Green Smoothie.  This is a blend of water, frozen pineapple, ginger, hemp protein, frozen banana, lemon and ice.  This kept me fueled for a 3 mile and some treadmill inclines.

Lunch was a modification of the Tofu Fra Diavolo.  I did not quite have of the sauce for a serving, so I made up the difference with some Kale Salsa on top of the whole wheat spaghetti.   It worked.
A snack of banana with  almond butter spread on it, was my pre workout snack before the XPF Foundations class at the gym.  The class is a circuit of resistance training with some cardio thrown in.  Yes, I am sore today.
Roasted tomatoes
In the afternoon I made a large batch of roasted tomatoes to use for several meal.  The tomatoes were quartered and seasoned with salt, pepper and parsley and cooked in a bit of olive oil.  Once they done, a splash of red wine was added.
Barley Salad
The base of dinner was a Barley Salad.  I used some of the barley that was cooked a few days ago and added cucumber, kalamata olives, Kale Salsa, Roasted Tomatoes, chickpeas and a Lemon Vinaigrette that I had also made earlier. 
Lemon Vinaigrette
The vinaigrette is easy.  Some fresh meyer lemon juice, olive oil, salt, black pepper, and a little bit of sugar.
This is the final dish.  The Barley Salad is on top of some butter lettuce and topped with some Beyond Meat mock chicken.
