Good morning and happy humpday!
For some reason I woke up this morning and found my internet working again….it’s off, it’s on..who knows. It works now and that’s all that matters because its so frustrating when something like that happens! I totally forgot because I was so flustered last night when blogging that the “chicken” lunch was a little disappointing. I mean, it was fine and I ate it, but I don’t think it was worth the $3.00. The sodium level was quite high and it heated up to kind of a homogeneous brown mess….nothing like the picture. The taste was alright and it left me feeling full, but the whole thing was kind of meh. Today I’m going with a classic that I know won’t let me down—pb&j!
Last night in school we made chocolate mousse cake with a ribbon sponge. You will see pictures tomorrow morning because it has to set overnight in the mold, but it took forever and I think the result will be well worth the effort! The sponge cake is an almond sponge and then there’s a different cake batter (ribbon paste) that is colored using different food colorings and made into a pattern on the cake itself, so the cake ends up looking all “ribbony” with different bright colors. Hard to explain, but very cool looking and I’m sure you guys will like it!
This morning I woke up and went to the gym for upper body strength training. I warmed up on the treadmill for a couple minutes then did lat pull downs, bicep curls, triceps, back, pecs and finished it off with 100 crunches (I’m hard core, right?! haha). When I got back home I made exactly what I was craving for breakfast: waffles. I didn’t have time to make them homemade unfortunately, but that’s why we have HempPlus! I toasted up two and sprinkled them with chopped walnuts, the other half of my banana and drizzled maple syrup on top. Heaven.
Like I said, I’m going with a classic that I know won’t let me down for lunch. A good old pb&j on sprouted wheat bread. Another peach to go alongside it. Sorry for all the same fruit lately but when peaches are in season, nothing else matters! They are my absolute favorite and I look forward to this time every year when I can have them to my heart’s delight.
I’ve been eating these soy crisps for years—they make a great snack. In one serving size there is something like 7 grams of protein, 110 calories and 1 gram of fat. Plus, they come in all these different potato-y chip flavors like BBQ, salt and vinegar and ranch. I love the salt and vinegar and like to pair these with a piece of fruit for a snack that appeals to all my taste buds. I’m definitely a salty kind of girl! Today I packed a baggie with a pear for later on. You guys should seriously try these—they won’t let you down!
off to get back to the grind!
