What a fantastic Saturday!
I woke up, ate this pre workout snack…(half of a thin bun warmed up with a smear of White Chocolate Wonderful natural pb)
And then headed out to another fantastic yoga class!! I really love yoga…I love it more and more each week!
Once home and showered up I made myself a magical bowl of breakfast!
Greek yogurt (plain because the supermarket was all out of honey greek yogurt!), raw oats, thawed mixed berries and cocao nibs!! Delicious!
Jeff and I lounged around and watched The Sopranos this morning and then it was time for lunch!
I had another “My only desire in this world is comfort food” moment and I conjured this up in my mind…And then in my kitchen within about 5 minutes
Tuna melt anyone?? YES PLEASE!!!
With a slice of gouda melted on top!
I only ate 1 of these…My eyes were bigger than my stomach! Leftovers here I come!
After lunch my husband and I continued our hunt for KALE!! Last night we went grocery shopping and we went to 3, YES 3 supermarkets without being about to find it!
Isn’t it my luck?
It’s the SPOTLIGHT food I pick for January and I can’t find it anywhere!
But two grocery stores later, I found it!!
And I paid about 3 times as usual for it!! It was worth it though
After we were home I made a lasagna while Jefferson watched NFL.
Supper was…YOU GUESSED IT! Roasted veggie infused whole wheat turkey lasagna!
And kale chips! Recipe/tutorial to come!
You wouldn’t think the two went together but in my house they do!
In THIS batch of lasagna there is a HUGE butternut squash, a zucchini and a portabella mushroom! AND Jeff absolutely raved about it! It was out of this world if I do say so myself
AND dessert! I was feeling extra frisky today so I made a frozen fruit soft serve (banana and mixed berry) topped with coconut butter and cocao nibs!
Jeff is getting 5 (yes 5) teeth pulled next Friday (4 of them are wisdom teeth) and so this weekend I was going to try making him a milkshake made with REAL FRUIT because, well, he’s going to be on a liquid diet and, milkshakes make everyone feel better right??
Jeff slurped down 2 whole cups of REAL STRAWBERRIES, vanilla frozen yogurt, vanilla SOY MILK and Vega Vanilla Almondilla protein powder! I put the protein powder in because I wanted to know how it would taste next weekend. Jeff likely won’t be eating much for the first few days and he has already requested milkshakes…I want the milkshakes to be as nutritious as possible though!
Well now I am going to watch some more Sopranos!
Thanks for taking the time to read on a Saturday!
