Dinner last night was one of those whatever is in the fridge nights! These are almost my favorite meals, I almost always end up creating something new and random that I end up loving (or occasionally hating). It usually gives me new favorite meals to make in future! Last night was one of the good experiments! I had some left over hemp curry salad that was absolutely amazing, but I ended up giving about half of that to the BF for 2 reasons. 1) I was getting full from the other amazing part of my meal and didn't have enough space. 2) The BF was still hungry (big surprise, right). The amazingness you see to the left is inspired by all the tasty dinner creations I see from the hungry hippie , and is a random mix of stuff that I found in the fridge (and it is mostly raw! yayness): broccoli slaw, corn, sliced bell pepps, lemon hummus (recipe on d.h. very soon), avocado, and a touch of olive oil. I smashed up the avocado and mushed up all the hummus to form an amazing caserole like mish mash of veggies. It was so tasty, I made more for a snack tomorrow!
The rest of the night was spent a) running errands (the BF and I found a new set of bamboo shelves we are gonna pick up later this week), b) at the gym (got in an hour on the stairs, woo!), c) making pizza for tomorrow's dinner and more delish hummus for snackage, d) walking and training the puppers. My what a busy night!! I can't wait to show you guys pics of the pizza that will be gracing the blog tomorrow!
The evening ended with a quickie dessert of banana-papaya-pineapple pudding with some hemp + brown rice protein powder, 2 dates and a few raisins sprinkled on top. It was mushy, cold and perfect after quite the busy evening.
I also got all my snackage for tomorrow packed right up. Half an ezekiel a.b. and cherry fruit spread sammie.
Giant taco-ish salad with spinach, romaine, hemp seeds, chia seeds, corn, broccoli slaw and dressed with brown rice vinegar and roasted tomato salsa. More of the amazing hummus-caserole stuff I had for dinner (but this time I used my new super-garlic hummus instead of the lemony flavor, again recipe on d.h. very very soon).
I got up this morning ready all ready to go to the gym! I love those mornings! I had a quick few bites of one of my versions of the Thrive Diet energy bites (2.5 dates processed with 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp Lemon Juice and some dried, shredded coconut). These are perfect before a workout. I also feared I'd get too hungry if that is all I ate, so I had a lovely pear. Probably didn't end up needing that....
I biked over to the gym, did a quickie upper body workout followed by 3o mins of treadmill interval training (since I probably won't get any cardio time this afternoon) before biking (very slowly) home. Upper Body Superset (Up-Down Plyo Exercise between each superset)- Alternating Press/Fly: 3 sets, 6 reps of each press & fly - Barbell Row: 3 sets, 10 reps - Tricep Extensions: 3 sets, 10 reps - Hammer Curls: 3 sets, 10 reps - Front Raise: 3 sets, 12 reps
My breakfast was a smoothie in a bowl3/4 cup Frozen Cherries 1 Large Leaf Kale 3 Handfulls Spinach 1/2 cup Water 1/4 cup Chocolate Almond Milk 1 Tbsp Cacao Powder 1/2 Tbsp Hemp Protein Powder 1/2 Tbsp Brown Rice Protein Powder 1 tsp Maca Powder 1/2 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed Sprinkle Stevia Cinnamon
This bad boy was one of the best green smoothies I have ever made. I threw it in a bowl with some raisins on top and made myself waaaaaaaaay too full. I may not need all those snacks I packed with this guy chillin in my tummy! I was really reluctant to try stevia since I don't like things uber-sweet, but now I'm in love. It doesn't have a funky taste and makes my smoothie just perfect (as long as I only use the tiniest sprinkle).
I'm off to create the cell phone chips of tomorrow, see you guys lata!
