Yes, you read that right. Last night when I was thinking about what to make for dinner, I remembered that not one single veggie had passed through my lips – that is very unusual for me. Charlie requested a simple bowl of pasta with butter – he was told to take it easy with food for the day. D got the same thing. I opted for a bowl of oats (easy and always filling), to which I snuck in some frozen broccoli florets (I despise the stalks – ick!) so that I could at least get a little green in my system. Honestly, I really could not taste it. There may have been a hint of veggie flavor but the Vanilla Rice Protein Powder is pretty sweet plus I added an apple in the mix too (I have no problem fitting in my fruit quota for the day). I would actually eat this again and I just might sooner rather than later. Now I just need to figure out a way to sneak green veggies into D’s food. He gagged on peas the other night – not good!!!!
This morning’s bowl of oat bran did not contain any vegetable matter but it was full of blueberries.
I cooked up my typical 1/2 cup with water and 1/2 a scoop of Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein. I added a good dose of cinnamon and 1 full cup of frozen blueberries. I topped it off with a tablespoon of Sunflower Seed Butter.
I bet that this would have tasted great even with a little touch of broccoli – don’t knock it until you try it.
I made it to the gym again this morning where I did a 4 mile run, 10 minutes on the Stairclimber and 20 minutes on the Elliptical. I fit in a great strength training workout while I was there as well. I don’t know what was with me this summer – I really slacked on the weights. I am back with it – thankfully it was not too difficult for me to get back into my old routine. I do love my running but boy do I notice a difference when I strength train.
I have lots to do today so I must get to it.
