Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!
I woke up this morning still full from last night! That African food was dense! After a Green Monster and some internet perusing, I headed to the gym where I ended up doing 4 miles on the treadmill. My knees felt fine, probably because I did a run/walk combo (run 2 mins/walk 1 min).
I came home to try something new:
I’ve realized that complex carbs keep me full for longer. The past two days I’ve come home ravenous after a basically complex carb free lunch! So I’m going to try to incorporate whole grains and other complex carbohydrates into my lunches to see if that helps keep me from wanting to gnaw my arms off around 4:30pm.
I made a delicious stir fry with a bit of coconut oil, garlic, zucchini, bok choy, scallions and Kikkoman Ponzu. On top of that, I added a chopped up Spicy Chik’n Patty and helping of barley!
Delicious! Very filling! Finished off the meal with two cuties and huge cup of green tea!
I basically did nothing today… I went to TJ Maxx to return the fantastic red heels that didn’t fit 😦 and to Target to pick up some cleaning essentials.
Later in the evening, I decided I wanted a labor intensive dinner, because reading wasn’t looking that good…
Pizza! Using this dough recipe from Eating Well.
Toppings includes: sauce, a layer of finely chopped spinach, fresh mozzarella, chopped artichoke hearts, and grated romano cheese.
Artichokes make everything delicious! What are your favorite homemade pizza toppings?
I also ventured and made Chocolate Chia Pudding…
Sad to say this is the first bloggie recipe that I did not like. I threw it away 😦 Oh well! Can’t love them all!
Since today was full of slacking, tomorrow is a study day. Dreading it already. The Oscars are on tomorrow! I can’t wait to see the dresses on the Red Carpet!
Have a fantastic night!!
