Yesterdays breakfast was another bowl of Overnight Oats. They are my go-to breakfast of choice when I need to get up early (or before 9!).
- 1/3 c Oatmeal
- 1/3 c Stonyfield French Vanilla
- 1 scoop TJ’s Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
- Chocolate Chips!
Do you have a go-to breakfast one mornings when you are crunched for time? I used to depend heavily on Erin Baker’s Breakfast Cookies but with Overnight Oats I save money!
Orange you glad I’m crazy? Snack was obviously a lovely Cara Cara orange.
We are entering the part of the week where the majority of our produce is either used up or being held onto for a particular meal, so I had few choices for my side with my grilled Flatout (filled with cheddar & hummus). I was thinking either carrot or sweet potato fries, but when it came down to it I did not feel like waiting! So I chopped up a few carrots instead and used up the last of my Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa.
After lunch I debated doing some yoga or another form of exercise. But after some guidance from my friends on Twitter, I opted for yoga. I headed to Yoga Today to see what This Week’s Free Video was and I was pleasantly surprised by
Moo Shu Vegetables was on the menu for last nights dinner but when I pulled out the Broccoli Slaw that the recipe called for it had gone bad! So I quickly changed gears and opted for more of an Italian spin on supper.
Gnocchi with Pesto + Sautéed Vegetables
When I got home from work I was craving something sweet so I made a quick homemade frozen yogurt. I threw the following things in a blender and then put the mixture into two separate bowls to freeze a little bit more. Then we had dessert!
- 1 c Yogurt (I used a mix of plain and French Vanilla)
- 1/2 c Frozen Strawberries
- 1 tbsp of Honey
I know we concentrate a lot on all of the short comings of our society, country, and even of ourselves in regards to topics like exercise and healthy eating but lately I have been so impacted by the healthy attitudes that I have witnessed from ordinary people in my own life.
Virtually every time I get in the car to travel anywhere, regardless of the time of day, I drive past a biker, a runner, or a walker.
I recently started coaching a middle aged couple who want to complete a triathlon as part of their Fitness Bucket List.
During swim lessons I overheard a group of 5 year olds naming their favorite foods. The top picks? Fish, Strawberries, and Corn.
My point is that as much issues as we do have in regards to obesity and lack of exercise, a lot of Americans are making huge strides towards living healthy lifestyles and I think it’s something we are forgetting to celebrate!
Have you noticed a healthy movement in your community? What healthy things catch your attention?
