Das Boot

Yesterday morning I woke up at 6am and decided to head out for a run… I completed 4 miles in 35 minutes and came home and did the 10 pound slimdown yoga video. If I don’t get my workout done in the morning its likely it wont happen!

After a quick shower I whipped up some protein oatmeal. Because everyone likes hot oatmeal after a sweaty workout in 100 degree weather, right?

In the bowl: 1 packet of strawberries and cream oatmeal, 1/2 smashed banana, 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 scoop cake batter protein, 1T chia seeds and the other 1/2 of the banana sliced. SO GOOD.

Side Note: I’ve had this bowl for 10 years 🙂 Isn’t it perfect?

I cleaned the entire apartment yesterday (which is small) and it took me all day. I clearly have ADD. I took a break for lunch and grocery shopping!

Leftover sloppy joe, an ear of corn cut of the cob and romaine lettuce

I have to remember to only stick to my list when I go grocery shopping on the bike! I almost hit about 8 people on my way home because the weight of the bags steered me in every which way direction. Whoopsies!

I threw dinner in the crockpot and headed to a free fitness in the park class. The flyer said it would be a hip hop class…When I arrived the teacher explained that the hip hop teacher couldn’t make it but she would be happy to teach modern dance. I was cool with it…or so I thought. WORST WORKOUT EVER. I couldn’t even call it a workout. She had us prancing around, rolling around in the grass and crossing our legs like a butterfly. I left 25 minutes into the class and snapped a picture of the prancing while running away.

Not my thang.

On my walk back home I noticed there were pieces of paper all over my car.. I walk up and bam.

I’m booted. Seriously Hoboken? Ticket me and boot my car. Thanks for ruining my day!!!

Thank goodness dinner was ready when I got home. The crock pot saves me once again.

French Dip sandwiches on whole wheat buns and a side of roasted zucchini.

I get A LOT of searches on my blog for Pot Roast so I thought I’d share this recipe because it couldn’t be ANY easier.

Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

Ingredients 

  • 2 lb Chuck Roast (trim the fat (but not all of it)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Lipton Onion Soup packet
Directions
  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Pull apart beef for sandwiches
I topped Adam’s with cheese and poured a little extra sauce on the sandwiches since I didn’t have enough to dip them.
I don’t like to toot my own horn but….beep beep. These were good!
Dessert was something that was definitely on my agenda tonight since I was SO angry about my car.
Graham cracker spread with natural peanut butter, dark chocolate chips and sugar free cool whip. Might be seeing this one quiiite often.
I have a long to do list to tackle today…and more brown bananas so I’m thinking of making banana cupcakes! Who wants some?

QUESTIONS: Has your car ever been booted? Have you ever taken a modern dance class?

Long Named Cookies

Ahh, yes…back to those cookies I whipped up after traumatizing myself on Sunday. Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip Cookies. We’re gonna have to think of a shorter name than that because I could’ve eaten two cookies by the time I was done telling you their name.

These cookies are healthy and miniature size…so it’s OK if you eat more than one. If you’re really stressed like me you could eat 4. And cookie dough, of course 🙂 Life’s too short to not lick the spoon!

Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sucanat
  • 1/2 cup organic cinnamon applesauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Ener-G egg replacer for two eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup vegan carob chips

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Beat the first three ingredients, then add the flour, baking soda, and salt and beat again.
  • Stir in the oats, then add the egg replacer.
  • Add dried blueberries and carob chips. Mix well.
  • Scoop with a rounded tablespoon and add each cookie to greased baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.

 

THESE

ARE

THE

BOMB DOT COM

Since there is no added sugar, no oil and there is oatmeal and fruit I totally think this is breakfast acceptable. Am I right, or am I right?

Besides eating cookies for breakfast every morning I’ve been OBSESSED with having cereal. But not just one kind… I need combos. A little bit of everything 🙂

In this bowl: Cinnamon Cheerios, Kashi Honey Sunshine, Kashi Go Lean w/ more cinnamon & chia seeds with Unsweetened Original Almond Milk. De.Freaking.Licious.

Last night I came home to a surprise. My entire family was over for an impromptu BBQ. This is why I love summertime.

I ate my weight in pita chips before dinner… We had Red Hot Chili Pepper flavored by New York Style. I didn’t even know they made pita chips…but I can 96% guarantee I won’t buy another brand ever again. Oh.My.God. These taste like bbq fritos. I also dipped them in roasted red pepper hummus. I was a spicy pepper loving fool.

When it was time for dinner I wasn’t THAT hungry…But i needed a little more than pita chips to keep me full til the morning so I grabbed a thin sliced chicken breast, a piece of corn and a side salad (spinach, tomatoes, avocado).

My meal screams summmmmmmmmmmmmmmer. Yes, it talks.

I also skipped dessert and had a cup of watermelon instead

Fruit is NOT a dessert…unless its served in something warm… with a dollop of ice cream. And that’s final.

See ya tomorrow 🙂

QUESTIONS: Do you consider fruit as dessert? Can you think of another name for the Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip cookies?? Please and Thank you.
