Hi folks! I cannot believe that it is Wednesday already!
But’s since it’s Wednesday that means that it’s time for WIAW again! A big thank you to Jenn for hosting as always.
Yesterday I woke up bright and early and made another super green smoothie. I’m really loving my smoothies at the moment especially when they are stripped back and simple. This one contained avocado, ice cubes, spinach, soya milk, strawberries, ground flax and maca powder. Like last week the avocado made this really creamy but the ice cubes made it even creamier.
Mid morning I was feeling hungry so I snacked on an apple and made a huge pot of Yogi cinammon tea.
For lunch I raided the freezer and found a bag a of my Coconut Spiced Vegetable Soup. To be honest I wasn’t sure what this was until I defrosted it. That will teach to always write the names of the things I make and want to store in the freezer on the freezer bag. This tasted lovely and I definitely have to make another batch soon. I also ate a slice of toasted rye bread and a persimmon.
I was still full from lunch so I skipped my afternoon snack. Since I had to spare time to kill before my body pump class I decided to do 15 minutes of speed intervals on the cross trainer before class.
My instructor decided to break out Body pump 80 which she said was more intense. I decided to go lighter on my weights as from past experience I knew that this class was going to hurt. Boy, did it hurt! I think the DOMS set in before the cool down section. I really enjoyed the class though and although parts were challenging I found most of it the same as the previous release.
After freshening up it was time to make dinner. I already had some of my High Protein Three Bean Chilli made up so I used it as a topping on half a roasted butternut squash with a side salad of mixed leaves, avocado, red peppers and cucumber. The roasted squash made a great alternative to a baked potato.
I have a strange relationship with potatoes at the beat of times. I only really like sweet potatoes but don’t really eat them often. The rosted squash was fabulous and just as filling. it tasted way better than a baked potato in my opinion.
Later in the evening I snacked on some sliced apples and a persimmon dusted with cinammon and peanut flour sauce. I also added raw shredded coconut and some dried cranberries. Sometimes I get major cravings for huge plates of fruit.
Do use products/vegetables to fake other ingredients?
Have you tried Body Pump 80 yet? What did you think?
