How is everyone’s week going? Spring break is flying by for me! It’s been low key so far. Yesterday was spent cleaning my dorm a bit, as well as my sister’s apartment. And of course, I’m enjoying being at my home Crossfit! Today’s workout was as follows:
hand release push ups
200 m sprint after each set
It was a quick but good one!
And of course, we have food.
I made oatmeal the other day and added A LOT of egg whites. I actually really liked it this way-it was very fluffy and custardy! And man, did it keep me full. I didn’t even think about being hungry for like 6 hours of cleaning!
In the middle of cleaning, we took a break for lunch and I made some wraps. Sun dried tomato laughing cow, turkey, spinach, and red pepper. I don’t usually like peppers, but I think I’m coming around! This had just so much flavor!
Yesterday’s snack was froyo from my favorite place ever (Wildberry). I actually kept it to a moderate serving, and stuck to the one flavor I know won’t disappoint-salted caramel pretzel! Topped with a bit of brownie crumble and heath pieces!
For dinner, we made coconut flour quesadillas from this recipe. They were delicious!
This morning, my friend and I had planned on hiking, but with pouring rain all day and my only waterproof clothing at school, that did not happen. Breakfast was 2 ingredient pancakes (2 eggs+1 banana) and plain chobani with blueberry compote.
Instead of the hike, my friend came over to do “homework.” She actually spent most of the morning learning to use photoshop and designing my new banner! I love it! I spent the morning attempting to go self hosted. In reality, I have zero clue what I’m doing and my site could go down at any moment. Fair warning! But more likely what seems to be going on is that I haven’t actually done anything…so we’ll see! It’s certainly a process! Lunch was a repeat of yesterday, except I heated up half to try it that way!
I’ve been wanted to try to make banana marble bread for a while, since I can’t seem to stay away from the campus cafes’ marble bread! I used my never fail banana bread recipe from the Nancy Clark Nutrition for Athletes book and tweaked it as needed. It came out great!
4 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons oil
1/3 c milk
1/4 c maple syrup
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 1/4 c whole wheat pastry flour (or white flour, or half white half whole wheat)
1/4 bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 c cocoa powder
Preaheat oven to 350.
Mash together bananas, egg, oil, milk, maple syrup, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
Divide the mixture equally into 2 bowls.
To one half, add 3/4 c flour.
To other half, add cocoa powder and remaining flour. Also, add chocolate chips to this half.
Pour into loaf pan. I poured mine so one half was chocolate on bottom and the other was white on bottom.
Then, use a knife to swirl the layers.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Slice and enjoy!
The rest of the afternoon was spent playing a very addictive game- 2048. Google it. It’s strangely fun.
Dinner after Crossfit was very veggie filled. I finally tried out my spiralizer on zucchini noodles-so fun!
We also whipped up a fresh tomato sauce with garlic, spices, tomato, and sun dried tomato.
Everything was topped with Italian spiced chicken and fresh mozzarella.
On the side was a salad with two of our amazing weekend purchases- lemon scented olive oil and fancy white balsamic.
These flavors together were insanely fresh!
And now I’m off for 2048…Guilty!
Have you heard of 2048?
