Muffins, Monsters and Dates
This evening I went to the baseball park to watch my brother’s baseball game.
What was more interesting than the game, was the conversation my parents were having with some other parents on the bleachers about Osama Bin Laden’s death. Ha!
Egg white + veggie scramble. With mushroom, onion, brussels and topped with a little feta and a tomato slice. And the last oat flour muffin on the side.
The oat flour muffin was 3 days old now, and was pretty dry. Next time I make the muffins, I might add more liquid + less flour, or add an extra egg.
Usually I make my green monsters with 1 cup of milk, but this time I omitted it and had an extremely creamy and thick texture! Plus it was more sweet and flavorful, since the milk didn’t take away from the flavor!
New favorite recipe: 1 sliced frozen banana, enough spinach to feed a small country (you think I’m kidding), 1 scoop whey chocolate protein powder and a handful of ice
Yes, I admit it. The whey chocolate protein powder DOES have fructose in it, but it’s the very last ingredient on the list, so it really has almost NO sugar in it! So technically my sugar free month is really just 99% sugar free month!
A stuffed date , devoured right before we left for the ball fields. I warmed the date up in the microwave for a few seconds before adding the peanut butter and carob chips, so it was all warm and gooey. Me likey.
I have a 2.5 mile run tomorrow for Couch To 5k. Identical to the one I did on Monday. That was the hardest run I’ve ever done and I have to admit I’m a little scared about doing it again tomorrow. I’m going to try and wake up pretty early to do it, while it’s still cool and dark out. That’s always a fun time to run, I want to see the sunrise!
My mom has a gym membership and she can bring 1-2 friends (me) every time she goes. But we don’t go to the gym, so I have just been running outside around our neighborhood. I like treadmills though, but I think running outside is good when you’re preparing for an outdoor race, like I am!
I still haven’t actually found or picked a 5k to run when I am ready, I need to get on that!
Do you prefer:
Treadmill or outside running? -Depends for me. Treadmills are excellent when doing HITT.
Almond or peanut butter? -Peanut all the way, for me!
