Operation hydrate continues…
As part of my lunch I had a huge English Cucumber bathed in my Better than Bottled balsamic vinaigrette and freshly ground black pepper.
I also whipped up a batch of my cheezy savoury oats!
I. LOVE. THESE. OATS.
Did I mention that before 2010, I never ate oatmeal? Little did I know, I just had to figure out a couple ways to enjoy it and then I got hooked!
In today’s bowl I mixed in 1/2 cup black beans and1/2 cup tomato sauce and lots of sea salt and pepper. It was so crazy good, but it made me very hot.
It is very warm in this house today so I made my second batch of banana soft serve for dessert to cool me down! I am definitely getting my potassium in today.
Today was a new twist on it.
Crunchy Chia Banana Soft Serve
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 frozen banana
Directions: Process in a food processor and scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Sprinkle with cacao nibs.
It was really thick and crunchy from the chia seeds!
Chia seeds are supposed to be a great pre and post workout food (they are hydrating + tons of antioxidants and omega fats), so I am getting in lots before tomorrow’s race.
And now for my second video…Please don’t mind my huge dorkiness. :blush:
Off to the wedding ceremony!
PS- I snuck some dates in my purse in case I need some extra carbs tonight.
This is what my life has come to. Sneaking dates into a wedding!
