Hello lovelies!! Another beautiful day, yeah? The title of this post may have brought you back a few years to the kissing game 7 minutes in heaven (which I never played btw) buuut I am referring to my 11 minute straight run today!! B-b-b-booyah!! Awesomeness. I did a 5 minute warmup, 11 minutes of JOGGING, and then a 5 minute cool down!!! After my 45 minute walk with Mr. Beasley.
Breakfast this morning was a HIT!! Andrew liked it! And ate it all. YAY!! And he just ate it on the regular. No toppings at all 🙂 Mine was not so lucky lol
haha like the monroe piercing?? I totally added granola and cashew butter after of course 🙂
I had another productive day (weeeoh!) but I stopped to take a break for lunch. It was supposed to be the wrap from yesterday but I put it in the fridge last night -HUGE MISTAKE – and when I went to take it out, it shattered. Lesson learned. My fail turned into a win pretty fast though. I cut up some leftover veggies and an artichoke heart, mashed a handful of chickpeas, added some dill and a laughing cow and BAM! Lonchi. With the last of the pumpkin butternut squash soup.
Yay super YUM. You might not be able to tell by my awful pictures but it was AHMAZING.
Andrew is making supper tonight and stopped so I could take some pics.
Lasagna switched up made with broccoli and ricotta cheese. And carrots, peppers, onions, tomatoes and goat chedda of course 🙂 We are out of bread so Andrew made toasted garlic buns.
I had a salad with mine as well. I looove when my greens get all mixed up with other food. I’m defintely not one of those people who can’t have their food touching 🙂
We had chocolate pie again for dessert! I made a little one for me with a crust of walnuts and dates. I was missing some raspberries so I mushed up a few defrosted ones and poured it on top.
Andrew’s piece obviously looks waaay more appetizing than mine. Nonetheless I murdered my little piece 🙂
Sooo….back to work tomorrow. Yeehaw. We are having an appetizer night on our first night shift (Friday) and I still don’t know what to bring!! Any ideas??? I also still need song ideas too 🙂
Sweet dreams monstas. Until tomorrow!! Hopefully I can get a chance to catch up on reading your blogs!
Holla! IT’S FRIIIDAY!!! Awesome possum. I am up waaay too early and tonight is gonna be pretty painful! Haha but that’s nothing new. I had LOTS of eats yesterday aaaaaand…..drumroll please…..
I RAN FOR 10 MINUTES STRAIGHT!!!!
One whole mile! No stops! I know that might not be a big deal to most people, but I don’t think I’ve ever ran that long before. So proud 🙂 I felt so great after!! And I’m so looking forward to doing it again!
Now onto the foooods.
B-fast was a smoothie because I had a nail appointment and I had to mooooove.
I was lurking on the Living Harvest website and found this great smoothie recipe. I halved it.
Vanilla Strawberry Banana Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp Vanilla Spice protein powder
Blend it and drink it.
When I got home I decided to make some Quinoa Protein Muffins found here. All I did was change the flava of protein. (No idea why I’m so into protein powder right now. Anything to help me stay fuller longer!)
My muffins did not turn out as well as I was hoping. Mine crumbled so I stuck them together with cashew butter to have as a snack at work.
While these were cooking I went and did my run 😉 Oh and because I had made a tons of quinoa, I made some of Angela’s maple quinoa cereal. Check it out riiiiight here!. I have actually made this three times now and burnt it everytime!! This was my best attempt yet though, ha.
I haven’t actually had any of this yet, but Andrew had it for breakfast (with almond milk I think) and he said it was gooood. Win.
I took Bizzle for a long walk and it went by so quickly now that I have new songs on my ipod. I hadn’t changed the songs in 2 years!! Shameful, absolutely. But I rock out now 🙂
I had eggs for lunch! I am so addicted I have been licking my plate clean for the last three days. I mashed some blackberries instead of using jam this time and IT IS DA BOMB. I also finished up the rest of the stuffed focaccia inards (spinach, red pepper, pine nuts, feta, onion) and a piece of Squirrley bread.
I totally didn’t do Raw Food Long Change. Deferred success. So I made orange and white potato salad. Another win.
Sweet Potato Salad
3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp stoneground mustard
tiny bit of fresh grated ginger
salt and pepper
Use as much of everything to taste.You can’t really mess this up 🙂
I made a wrap using the leftover veggies from supper the night before. I just added goat cheese and sprouts.
Blue Lagoon smoothie is next. Or purple lagoon. Whateves. Sooo good. Same recipe as before, just subbed in a cup of Saskatoon berries that we picked and froze in the summer. Now, please don’t judge the fact that it’s in a jar. I had no to-go cup. I tried to pretty the pic up 😉
Here is my lunchi all ready for my lunch kit
Oranges and the protein muffin with cashew butter make up the excess.
Look at what is in store for tomorrow!!! Caaan’t wait.
Hope you guys have a GREAT weekend! Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow. I am on days off in T-14 hrs!!!
