Did anyone have an afternoon powersnack today? I sure did. I had a Key Lime Pie Larabar! My stock is quickly depleting. I am going to be so sad when it runs out. I think I have 3-4 left :(
Today I decided to post Kath’s afternoon powersnack submission called ‘Afternoon Cobbler” I can’t wait to make this recipe!
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1/4 a cup pancake mix
1 oz milk
A splash of egg white
About 3 tbsp rolled oats
Sweetener if you like (a tsp of sugar, maple or honey)
Defrost and heat 1 cup frozen berries in a small oven-proof bowl so they are hot. Drain off liquid. Combine pancake mix, milk, egg white, rolled oats and sweetener (if using) in a bowl. Pour topping over berries. Bake for 10 minutes at 400*.
Yum! Looks delicious :D Thanks Kath.
Celebrity Weight Gain Rant
I am sure that you have all seen the tabloids this week on Jessica Simpson’s alleged weight gain. It literally disgusts me how women are treated in society today, especially celebrities. I know that everyone says if celebrities don’t like being in the spotlight, they can get out of it, but no one deserves that kind of treatment!
Yes, I know she has made a lot of her money based on her body (Dukes of Hazzard, anyone), but I still don’t think any reason gives justification to put someone down.
We are all human, we all feel like crap when we gain weight, and we especially don’t want people commenting on it.
Jessica has gone though some tough times since her divorce and who knows what else she is going through. I am personally not a fan of hers, but I can totally feel for the girl. It is no wonder that so many girls are growing up in today’s world with a completely skewed perception of their own and others bodies.
Why can’t we just be at peace?
I am still sore! :( I guess I must have done something pretty bad if I am still feeling sore. I think this week I may try doing some light yoga again and stretching. I miss running + exercise so much!!! This is the longest I have gone without exercise since I was a teenager!
Eric and I did get out yesterday for a short walk to enjoy the beautiful weather! It was so gorgeous outside. It felt nice to be out and about and get some vitamin D.
Get working on those Healthy Valentine’s Recipes! I am so excited for this contest! I will be posting all the entries in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day so we can all get some great ideas for desserts + meal ideas.
No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
