Ahhh sorry for the uber late post! I actually posted this long, elaborate dinner post but something weird happened to the internet and it never went through! I was so disappointed when, at school, I checked the blog from my phone and saw that I was missing my last post!!! Sorry guys! The internet really does not like me 🙁
But…the good news is that I retyped the post! 🙂 So here goes:
I really just cannot give enough praise to YogaDownloads! Today I tried the Yoga Core workout and it was great!! Tons of twisting and crunching and my abs are SURE to be sore tomorrow! After I had my workout, I snacked on 1/2 cup of 2% cottage cheese to re-fuel while I worked on my project…
And dinner! I made one of my favorite pasta dishes ever! This dish combines two of my favorite things: goat cheese and pasta! Is their anything better? Seriously? I used this new Ancient Grain penne that I found at Whole Foods and it turned out really well but a little more dry than usual. I’m not sure if it was the pasta to blame…I’ve made this dish at least a half dozen times and its always turned out really great and moist and tonight the flavor was there but it was on the dry side. I substituted broccoli rabe for broccoli florets and added peas because, well, I love peas. I made enough for two servings are already packaged the other serving up to take to work in the am. 🙂 I did drizzle about 1/2 tsp of oil on the serving for tomorrow though and stirred, hoping that will moisten it up when I reheat it tomorrow. Tonight I also had a “Naked Salad” with nothing but balsamic vinegar on it because I forgot to re-stock my woodstock (haha) at Whole Foods today. This salad was surprisingly refreshing though!
I brought 2 fig cookies to school tonight and although this doesn’t seem like a big snack, two of these “Fig Newmans” are 140 calories, which I think is perfect for the nighttime. It’s now 11:30 though and let me tell you, I ate those cookies but I also had my fair share of licks from the chocolate mousse and the flourless chocolate cake we made tonight 😉 I’m sugared out for the evening!
