A few days ago the very kind people at MuleBar sent me a tasty selection of their energy bars for me to review for my blog.
MuleBar pride themselves on providing a delicious source of energy for sports and recreational activities from 100% natural products. I have already munched on the Chocolate Banana and Chocolate Date Refuel bars and will be writing up my reveiw later this week.
Now for a rundown of yesterday’s food feast:
For breakfast I ate a yoghurt bowl consisting of TOTAL Greek Yoghurt (I still haven’t finished my stash!), a chopped banana, a tablespoon of Rude Health Granola and a tablespoon of almond butter…
I also had a slice of the bread that I baked on Sunday warmed with butter. It’s so moist and the soya flour has made it really light. I’ve had to put half of it in the freezer to stop myself eating it all in one sitting =)
Spiced Apple and Date Bread
inspired by Laura =)
- 100g of spelt flour
- 100g of soya flour
- 4 tbsp of canola oil
- 40g of brown sugar
- 1 tsp of all spice
- 1 tsp of fresh ginger
- 2 small grated apples
- 100g of chopped dates
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 3 large eggs
Toppings: 1 tsp of dark brown sugar, half a diced apple, 2 tbsp of chopped peacan nuts.
Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl until well combined…
A good tip is to add about of table spoon of spelt flour to your dates to stop them sinking to the bottom when baking…
Add the toppings and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 40 minutes…
For lunch I had a healthy serving of steamed pak choi and char shui roasted pork loin…
After a long afternoon I needed some energy, so snackage came in the form of a Chocolate Date MuleBar!
Whilst shopping around for food the day before I found a Mediterranean stall selling a variety of olives and anti-pasti, obviously I had to buy some…
They also featured in my hodge podge of foods for dinner…
I went to Mexico for a serving of Healthy Chilli, to the Carribean for the plantain and to the Mediterranean for the stuffed peppers, olives and roasted veggies.
Thats a well travelled plate if I ever have seen one 😀
Later I also had a small youghurt bowl of 4 teaspoons of TOTAL Greek Yoghurt, 1 tablespoon of Rude Health Granola and 2 teaspoons of cashew nut butter…
This morning I went for my first run, since starting the Tracy Anderson Method 3 months ago. I know TA doesn’t approve of running, but I have never bulked up because of it and have always enjoyed it as a form of exercise. So I’m going to run for my cardio portion of my fitness regime and do TAM’s muscular structure work.
I ran a 2.68 miles in 28 minutes and my average pace was 10.46 mins/mile, but it was my first run in a long time and boy did I feel it afterwards.
Do you enjoy your work out routine at the moment? Do you regularly change up your work out routine?
