So…I don’t know how I do it…I ended up going grocery shopping and cooking AGAIN today!! What is that, third day in a row? Anyway…
My cold is feeling much better. I woke up congested today but my energy was strong and I went to the gym for a mild sesh. And I am stretching a LOT more. Are you proud of me?
So after the gym I was starving and made a monster protein pancake. MMMMMM! Today it was:
1 packet gluten-free oatmeal (apple cinnamon flavor? I can’t remember)
1/4 cup egg whites
1 tsp baking powder
1 scoop Isopure strawberries and cream protein powder
a dollap of FAGE 0% yogurt
a dollap of organic canned pumpkin
dash of cinnamon
4 frozen cherries, cut up
a sprinkling of frozen goji berries
(I didn’t include a “healthy fat” because this is post-workout and wanted to focus on fast-digesting protein and carbs)
I topped it with Fage 0% yogurt, some Walden Farms zero-cal blueberry poison syrup, and a large organic strawberry. Yum!
Ready to Go!
Another thing I cooked today was turkey and kale and chard meatballs. Lately chicken has been getting little old and fish has been getting a little gross. Do you ever feel that way? So I decided to cook up a batch of turkey meatballs for my protein..supplemented with some kale and chard!!! woo haha :::demonic laughing:::
hefty douse of minced garlic (be hefty!!!! you fellow garlic lovers know what I’m sayin’)
hefty douse of dried minced onion (fresh would’ve been better, but I forgot to buy onion)
lil bit of rosemary, cayenne, and cumin
a lot of chili powder
and shaped them into balls, and put them in the oven at 425 for about 30 min. At the end, I decided to brown the outside by “sauteeing” them in the pan I had just cooked all my veggies in (unpictured). They turned out yummy!

And into the oven we go
Finishing up these bad boys!
Today is another gorgeous day! I have been feeling pretty peaceful lately ever since my big change a couple weeks ago (working for myself) and even moreso after attending the holistic lifestyle coaching cert! I don’t know, maybe it’s the nice weather, maybe it’s the super healthy eating, maybe it’s cutting out the caffeine..who knows! But I feel good!
