Normally, I jolt out of bed before my alarm even goes off excited for my morning workout. Today, not so much. I had a terrible night of sleep, or lack there of. I woke up groggy, tired, and NOT HUNGRY. wtf is right?? I immediately knew I was instore for “one of those days” until…
I recieved not just one…but two mood-changing e-mails, one of which finally permits me to share my SECRET with you!
First….I wanted to enlighten you with a few new recipes Up first: Tri-Colored Pepper Stir Fry
-5 mini sweet peppers
-1/4C frozen edemame
-3 oz. chicken breast
-1/2C cooked quinoa
-olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, low sodium soy sauce
Directions: Begin by pan frying the chicken breast (diced) in 1t olive oil and 1t minced garlic. When the chicken is almost cooked, add in diced sweet peppers and edemame. Stir fry for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Serve on a bed of quinoa and flavor with a drizzle of soy sauce + balsamic.
Considering today’s good news, which I still have yet to share with you, dessert was an obvious must-have tonight. Inspired by last night’s healthbuzz chat (hosted by Food Buzz) on Twitter, I decided to whip up a new fro-yo recipe. (I am no longer a Twitter chat virgin!)
-1 frozen banana
-1/5C nonfat blueberry yogurt
-2T almond milk
Directions: In a small food processor, mix all ingredients together for about 2 minutes or until smooth. The consistency of your fro-yo should be light and fluffy. Indulge- and don’t even feel bad for a second!
My obvious choice in topping was raisins…
