The Color Purple ...

Posted Oct 02 2009 3:08pm

Hello!

This morning I woke up early so we could finally have our garage sale. We’d been planning it for weeks and finally set the date for today! We had a lot of junk to sell that’s for sure! Here’s a sneak peek of like 1/3 of the items we were selling:

While I was waiting for customers I made a breakfast I’ve been looking forward to all week- oats in a jar! I love oats in a jar because I like to pretend there’s no more than a tablespoon or two.. but lets face it- there’s way more! Which is why I saved it for today since I knew I’d need a hefty breakfast to hold me through the morning and power me through kickboxing. Today’s mix contained:

  • 1/2 cup oats cooked in 1 cup water + cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin (stirred in after oats cooked)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (stirred in with pumpkin)
  • 4oz container of plain Oikos
  • Splash of almond milk and stevia
  • All in a 2+ tbsp 1 tbsp jar of Costco Organic PB ;)

I got peanut-buttered out that’s for sure!

And I was right that it powered me through Cardio Kickboxing- I was dripping sweat by the end! I attempted to do some ab work but I was way too exhausted. So instead I came home, showered, and made lunch. My breakfast lasted me almost 6 hours! 

Since I only have a couple lavish breads left I decided to make a burrito. And boy did I stuff it! It had:

  • 1 Joseph’s Whole Wheat and Flax Lavish Bread
  • 1/2 cup black soybeans
  • 1 Light Laughing Cow cheese wedge
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 steamed summer squash
  • Green peppers
  • Jalapeno hot sauce, New Mexico Red Chili

It was so big that I had to eat it with a fork! Observe:

If you ever order a burrito from a restaurant in New Mexico they always drench it in red chili!

The rest of the afternoon I spent hanging around the house with Bryon. I bought a pedometer the other day and have been wearing it all day- I’m trying to take as many steps as I can! It’s actually kind of difficult to reach 10,000 steps (without exercise that is.)

As big as my burrito was it didn’t fill me up all the way and I needed a snack a few hours later. I had 1/4 cup Fage 0% mixed with 1/4 cup pure pumpkin, cinnamon, and french vanilla stevia, and topped with a Deep and Velvety Vitabrownie.

I really liked the Vitabrownie! It tasted pretty chocolate-y and was very soft. I especially loved the walnuts on top!

For dinner I made a salad that had mixed greens, 4 oz cooked chicken breast (seasoned with cayenne, black pepper, and oregano), roasted beets, cucumber, balsamic vinaigrette, and apple cider vinegar.

And then I had a small baked purple sweet potato covered in cinnamon, ginger, and 2 tsp peanut butter.

Oh my goodness I love those things so much! They are so dense and cake-like! If you guys ever see them at the store you must try one and tell me how you like it! There was actually an article about them in the newest issue of the Clean Eating Magazine - apparently they are high in potassium, vitamin C, beta-carotene, fiber, and cancer fighting anthocyanins. All the more reason to eat them :D

Well my friends I must be off! I’m planning on taking a nice long walk with Bryon!

I’ll leave you with the…
