This morning I got the inkling to make some Mango-Banana Soft Serve for breakfast. Change things up. I felt I needed to add a little substance. So, I topped it with some Love Grown Foods Raisin Almond Crunch Granola. Nom Nom.
Mango-Banana Soft Serve
Handful of frozen mango + 1/2 frozen banana + dash of vanilla extract.
Note: if you are using a blender (as opposed to a Vitamix) add a little bit of H2O or mylk to make soft serve blendable.
And a soy mocha when I arrived to work. It was calling my name.
Got my afternoon run in. Was afraid the run wasn’t gonna be a good one because I didn’t really eat much. Just didn’t feel like it. But I had a good run with an average pace at 5.4mph.
Sprinted the last minute with a 6.5 mph because I really wanted to pull past the 2 mile mark and get on with my plank. I planked for 1.15 minutes.
Then refueled with a mixed salad with tuna, lots of watermelon, all topped with a turkey patty.
Still keeping it light. Do you have those days when you just want to eat light?
When I got home I was off to prep dinner. But in the meantime, needed something to keep me satisfied.
Maybe I’m just addicted to these spicy little wasabi peas.
Dinner & Nighttime Snack
I was making this salad. But I substituted a few things. Bulgur with Wheatberries. Cilantro with Basil. Pine Nuts with a mixture of Walnut & Smoked Almonds.
Because that’s what I had on hand. I think I substituted just about everything. LOL. It turned out delish.
The aroma of cumin, coriander, garlic and cinnamon wafting through my house was delightful!
Served with Salmon.
Do wheatberries resemble Scarab beetles to you, like they do me? Sorry hope I didn’t ruin it. But I always think that.
Wheat toast topped with Chocolate PB, bananas, chopped almonds, sprinkled with cinnamon, and drizzled Xagave.
I love Xagave.
Its not sweet like sugar and balanced. To me, its the best ‘sweetner’ on the market. And it can be used in a 1-on-1 ratio to sugar.
Was so good drizzled on this snack…
And a teaspoon in my Citrus Herbal tea.
Which I am sipping right now as I write this post.
