I found a copy of the Cauliflower Pie online!! Again, the only sub I used was in using sweet potato in place of the white. I love the sweet flavor mixed with sharp cheddar cheese. Amazing. 😀
I wanted to use up the rest of my canned pumpkin before it went bad, so I decided to make a pumpkin breakfast cookie!
1/2 c. oatmeal
cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
1 banana, mashed
1 T. peanut butter
1/4 c. canned pumpkin
2 T. crushed flax
It was much softer then normal due to the pumpkin, but I loved it that way! It tasted like a mix between pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie. 😀
Mom and I headed out for a short walk this morning, and my foot felt relatively pain-free. I taped it up during the walk and iced it well upon my return. I’m still keeping it easy on my foot as much as I can, but it felt incredibly refreshing to go out for a leisurely stroll! 😀
Then I ate this snack of cottage cheese and an apple in about 5 minutes flat before dashing out the door to drive to my classes…
I love having leftover brown rice in the fridge, because the possibilities of lunch options are endless!! Today I threw together the following:
1 c. brown rice
1/2 c. black beans
about 1/4 c. salsa
1 carrot, thinly sliced
handful of cauliflower, chopped small
1/4 avocado, diced
On the side I had a cheesestick. 😀
This afternoon I packed an orange and some almonds. Definitely need to find a more green friendly way of packing my snacks. My lunches are always easy to put into a plastic container, but I could use some smaller boxes for packing my snacks. I’d rather not be wasting! 😀
I received my advisor’s letter of recommendation today which means I can send in my dietetic application tomorrow!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 So excited! I have the attitude of feeling that whatever will be will be. 😉 In other words, I really, really want to get this internship, but if I don’t get it this year, it’s not meant to be. There will be plenty of other experiences awaiting me, and I’ll just apply again next year!
I was pretty much bursting with energy after receiving this final letter, which was a perfect way to pep me up for the gym. I ate half of this banana manna bar before working out and saved the other half for afterwards.
I had a pretty simple workout, as I felt a little intimidated to be walking into a new gym with equipment that I didn’t recognize. 😳 But by the end of my 30 minutes on the elliptical, I felt much more relaxed and started to explore. There are so many crazy machines! I don’t plan on letting myself get bored while going to the gym through this foot injury. Maybe I’ll even sign up for a biking class one of these times! Oh the possibilities. 😀
Dinner was both delicious and quick & easy!
There was homemade sauce and homemade bison meatballs in the freezer that were waiting to be put together for a quick dinner. Yum!! I love pasta dinners and the extra protein from the bison keeps me full for forever. Not to mention that it’s a great source of iron…this is especially important for younger females! 😀 On the side of my pasta dinner, I had a side salad topped with black beans, green & black olives, and a splash of balsamic vinegar with orange juice.
Off to chillax a little! 😀
Do you prefer working out at home, at the gym or outdoors? Or a mixture of the above? I definitely prefer being outdoors, but I love, love, love a morning yoga session too! 😀
