HELLOOO friends!! *EDITED TO ADD: Sorry guys my internet was down yesterday night, so this is yesterday’s post! I’ll be back later for my Friday Faves!! *
Ok, I LOVE all your comments on my Facebook wall and the reasons why you are beautiful on my giveaway post !! I agree with them all 10000x over!! You are seriously all such BEAUTIFUL people!!
Let’s have some food time. I have been craving oats SO much recently! And I always honour my cravings
Banana oatmeal with raisins and almond butter.
My favourite snack today…
Oats In A (not very empty) Jar!!Oat bran in an almond butter jar, topped with jam. My oats NEVER fit in these small jars, so there was a lot of overflow which also found it’s way into my belly somehow
Aaaaand inspired by the lovely Amanda I had my first ever SAVOURY OATS!! Not gonna lie, I was a bit scared beforehand. I mean, I’m a sweet girl ALL THE WAY (not that you knew that already or anything…) so savoury oats just seemed weird to me! But I love trying new things, so… Savoury Oatmeal!! With nooch, hummus and lots of salt! (Salt really helped the transition here! ) I also found an avocado in my fridge afterwards to that joined the party too. I actually LOVED it! Ok, I still prefer sweet (obviously!), but savoury is pretty darn good! I think I’m gonna channel my Inner Amanda next time and try sweet AND savoury together, so some jam and maybe even chocolate chips will join it! CRAZY TIMES!!
So today was a rainy day. Do you like rain? I’m not a fan I’m afraid. Especially when it’s been like this two days running…
But I believe in making the most of every situation. Especially when it gives me an excuse to bake…
HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!! I made them yesterday, and I won’t embarrass myself by telling you how many are left! These fuelled me for my first workout today. Seriously, fuel of champions. I know this is Paula Radcliffe’s big secret, so she’d better watch her back cos in 5 days time I will be back, but even better because I will have PB cookies in my belly. They make me look like this:
So first workout today (I am loving two-a-days at the moment! Getting ready for hard training in my first ever ‘season’ for XC, woop!)
And then I came home, and bonded with my beloved Criminal Minds whilst stretching out…
Please don’t ask me why I’m such a weirdo.
After watching waaaay too much TV, I got the baking itch again. So I raided my kitchen for some ideas, and guess what I found?
Overripe bananas!! Wahoo!! I then remembered drooling over the banana bread in Amanda ’s posts (no, I’m not obsessed with her or anything… ) I whipped up her recipe for it!
Best. Banana. Bread. EVER!! Warm and topped with almond butter, it made an AMAZING pre-BodyPump snack!
Carbs and fats together. My two favourites. After Pump, I needed more CARBS. I threw in protein too for good measure…
Wholewheat spaghetti with vegan bolognese. And a bowl of broccoli on the side (unpictured) because I love that green goodness.
And FYI I didn’t take my Bondi Band off all day today. I think I’m in love with it. NO SWEAT dripping in my eyes in either workout today!!
And did you notice on this photo that I did a NORMAL SMILE?! It takes a lot of effort for me to not pull a Crazy-Excited face you know
Oooh and I just remembered I did a guest post about my running story over on Sara’s blog so please check it out here and leave me some comment love!!
What have you been craving a lot of recently? Oats oats oats! With a side of oats.
What are your favourite things to do on a rainy day? And friends who live in cool places like Texas or somewhere PLEASE don’t rub your hot sunny weather in my face or I will cry.
Random Q: What is your fave: carbs, fats or protein? Carbs and fats. Although I try to get all three in every meal, for me it’s all about the carbs and fats!
