Good morning sunshines!
Yesterday my goal was to try something new at every meal – achieved! Breakfast started with my new favorite, oatmeal pancakes, but I tried out a new fruit with them:
Peaches are delicious. Oatmeal pancakes are delicious. The combination is doubly delicious.
- 2/3c old fashioned oats
- 4 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- couple shakes of cinnamon (more than usual, since peaches + cinnamon = love)
- 2/3 chopped peach in the mix
- 1 plain Fage
- 1 packet Stevia In the Raw
- More cinnamon
Topped with the last third of the peach, sliced. Warm peaches, chewy oats, sweet, cinnamon-y, thick yogurt – I die.
After digesting, I headed to the gym to break in my new Asics. With the hottest two days of the year being yesterday and today (yesterday felt like 106 at its highest point, I think), breaking them in on the trail was not even an option. I did a hilly 5k to some great new tunes. Some that keep me really going lately:
- Physical – Glee cast version
- Love the Way You Lie – Eminem and Rhianna
- Dynamite – Taio Cruz
- Magic – B.O.B
- Shark in the Water – V V Brown
- Can’t Be Tamed – Miley Cyrus
- My First Kiss – 3OH3! and Ke$ha
Lunch was sushi with my dad! BlackBerry pics ahead.
Of course, every new sushi place I try has the best ginger dressing ever until I try somewhere else … Whatever.
True life: I eat ginger by itself and then ask for more.
This was new – I’d never had eel before! But I will definitely be keeping it in my sushi rotation – SO DELICIOUS! The sauce on top is the perfect complement. It made me forget that the first time they brought out the roll with just cucumber and took fifteen minutes to remake it. NBD. Fin of Fairfield, I will be back.
Afternoon snack, Gabriela-inspired:
- MultiGrain Cheerios
- Kashi H2H
- Almond milk
You are a genius! Why did I wait so long to try this great cereal combo? I guess because I don’t really crave cereal with milk anymore. I really like it with Greek yogurt now, but this was bomb. Thank you darling.
My mom made ratatouille for dinner! I’m a huge Remy fan, but I’d never tried the dish. Blurry pic, but I was hungry. You understand.
One and a half English muffins (finishing them off) topped with avocado + S&P .. how new. Ratatouille with eggplant, green pepper, zucchini, onion, and more. Topped with kidney beans – a fabulous protein addition.
Nightitme snack was chocolate milk, 30 Rock, and more popcorn than any one person should eat in one sitting.
Have you tried anything new lately? What are some of your newest workout tunes?
