I did my fair share of combining foods and flavahs today. I love dreaming up and trying out new combinations because it keeps things interesting. I’ll warn you, my combos can get mighty creative/strange but don’t get all Judge Foodie on me before you try them out for yourself!
I woke up, ate some crackers and drank an iced coffee (35% caf and 65% decaf) as a pre-workout snack. I got a major headache from the coffee (really?) and I knew a work out would make it all go away. Getting my butt there was a whole ‘nother story. After a good bit of dawdling I finally dragged myself there. 2 months ago you couldn’t pull me away from the gym and now I have to crawl.
Despite being a bit sore from a few squats and lunges yesterday (!!!) it ended up being a great workout. 2 months ago I was at a point where I never really got sore. Now I do 15 lunges and my legs are cramping. Gotta re-start from somewhere right?
I watched the Men’s Tennis French Open Semifinal game while pedaling. Watching sports always makes a workout more enjoyable!
- 20 min. elliptical
- 7 min. treadmill sprint
- 30 min. elliptical
- 10 min. arm weights
This time the treadmill sprint brought my <3 rate uppity up. I averaged 159 BPM. Running for just 7 min. can make my <3 rate higher overall. It’s like a permanent boost. I think it helped that I was watching a sport instead of reading my book.
Now I’m hesitant to show you this next part. Don’t judge, okay?? Pinky promise?
Toasted tempeh and Greek yogurt + pumpkin butter
(it looks like a rose!)
I said don’t judge!! I know you’re judging. Stop.
Tempeh alone is just alright but once you toast it and dip it in Greek yog + pumkin butter it is FAB-to-the-U-to-the-LOUS.
Snackity: toasted hazels
Then I got a package from Ms. Nora and immediately broke into the dark chocolate bar, obvs.
Dinner started with this guy.
After almost cutting off my finger peeling this jicama, I finally got to it’s dry meat. Boo boo double boo.
I ate this all the time when I studied abroad in Mexico and it was juicy and sweet. This was dry and flavorless. Sad face.
I still had some atop cooked kale and avocado. I added about 2 T of WFs Sesame Soy Dressing to the mix.
My dad made a Seafood Veggie Salad.
- Grilled Shrimp
- Green Peppers
- Rice Vinegar
I had about 2 cups plus ~80% of the shrimp in the bowl . I’m a shrimp monster.
Dessert: More of the above chocolate bar, chocolate chips, toasted hazelnuts and frozen berries.
So what’s the verdict, Judge Foodie?
