Breakfast

Cold Morning, Waffles and Jam

I woke up to a freezing apartment this morning! The temperature here dropped like 20 degrees last night and when I woke up it was like ice. So, I made a cappuccino to warm me up while I got ready for school. For breakfast I ate the last two of my kashi blueberry waffles (need to buy more of these!) with a little promise light, some raspberry preserves, a sliced banana and 1/2 cup cottage cheese. Other food bloggers were right about this new “whipped” cottage cheese. It’s wonderful! I’ve almost eaten the entire container! It’s so light, creamy and really good, as I found out yesterday, when you dip kashi crackers into it. Yum!!

Except me to come home armed with baguettes today….its french bread day! 🙂

    Last night, I knew exactly what I wanted for dessert….ice cream! However, I did not have any and I did not want to get out….sooo I made up my own “ice cream” recipe and it is REALLY yummy! All I did (you can use different fruits) is take a .5c of frozen sliced strawberries (i microwaved the strawberries for about 25 sec because they were frozen solid!) and about .25c of frozen blueberries (I did not measure them..) and 6oz of thick and creamy plain yogurt (I used Archer Farms Thick and Creamy Lowfat plain yogurt from target). Place it all in a blender (and if your blender is not the strongest thing on the planet, you may have to add a splash of milk to get it going like I did. However, the less milk you add, the better and the creamier!!) I blended mine for about 45sec, stir and 30-40 sec more. Just watch until everything is all blended! Once done, put in a pretty bowl with a few frozen blueberries on top. By the time you sit down and eat the blueberries will have started to thaw and will add an extra cold and tasty element to your “ice cream”! It was really really yummy!!!!

    If I were taking a class that baked bread all the time I’d be the size of a house.

    Sounds delish though.

    Baguettes? Oh my goodness…pair up a few pieces of that with some olive oil and spices and you’ve found one of my biggest weaknesses, haha! 🙂

    How did you go about getting your nutrition certification and what does it enable you to do? I am interested in making a career of nutrition and fitness and just trying to get different perspectives of the certifications offered out there.

    I just had my first slice of Ezekial bread and loved it! When you make sandwiches on it and don’t want it toasted, do you just set it out the night before? I’ve never put my bread in the fridge before and am lost as to what to do!

    Emily,

    That sounds delicious–I’ll have to try that next time! Same to you courtney…next time I’m at the store I’ll grab some english muffins. yum 🙂

    Brooke,

    I am certified by the afpa (american fitness professionals and associates) to be a nutritional and wellness consultant. I did this by taking a 4 month at home study course with a final case study “field” project at the end. It really just depends on your career goals on what you should do. I knew I didn’t want to go back to school to be an RD because some of the RD work (like in a hospital) just isnt’ me. I’m more interesting in the culinary side so I went the cooking school route. With the certification that I have I can legally counsel, give advice and meet with clients privately setting up their meal plans and working on nutrition/fitness goals with them. There is no legality to the term “nutritionist” so I could potentially have my own practice using that term. Think about your final goals and weigh all possibilities. That’s the best advice I can give!

    Mallory,

    It keeps for months in the freezer and weeks in the fridge! Go ahead and put the whole loaf in the fridge and it will defrost and you can take from it what you want, when you want. 🙂

    Grace,

    ME TOO!!

    Brooke~
    if you’re interested in a home study personal training certificate, check out the National Academy of Sports Medicine (http://www.nasm.org/) or the American College of Sports Medicine (www.acsm.org). One of my good friends is a personal trainer and highly recommends these programs 🙂
