Coconut water in a can needed after a back-to-back cardio workout: TurboKick and Zumba.
My feet were in so much pain in Zumba but Jamie's class was too much fun to stop. Yes, you heard it, I found a Zumba class I like. Not sure how sweaty I got since I was already sweaty to begin with.
Favorite summer lunch: shrimp spring rolls. Today, chicken spring rolls. With hoisin sauce diluted with water.
Instead of the more expensive kombucha, I went with a Diablo yesterday.
I sold this to some rich lady.
Made PB Fingers' almond butter pancakes to try. Ate one, tried to give the rest away. Almond flour made it too dense.
Instead, I ate what I initially planned to eat: pumpkin pie amaranth porridge.
I made 1/2 the recipe with unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk and ate half of it. I'm saving the rest for tomorrow.
This, surprisingly, was delicious. I added a few coconut flakes and stirred it in. The picture isn't gorgeous but the taste was spectacular. This was my first time using amaranth - it requires soaking overnight and lots of simmering on the stove.
I headed to yoga but no yoga instructor came. Instead, I came home and completed an easy "challenging dumbbell circuit" by Ashley Borden that I saw on Twitter and some stretches - pigeon and a long long dragon pose. Ouch.
We headed to Costco for a bit but only to walk around. I forgot to pick up some new magazines; they had lots of good ones. The early afternoon lull made me sleepy so I took a little nap.
Once I woke, it was too hot to go out so I prepped vegan quinoa and sweet potato chili sans black beans. Oh my goodness, this was delicious!
I needed to get out of the house (without air conditioning). I headed to the supermarket and found a great deal! I've wanted to try this even though it's not the healthiest thing.
After reading about PB Fingers' banana cheesecake smoothie, I picked up some Laughing Cow cream cheese. Sadly, they didn't have the cinnamon flavor, but this will do if I add some cinnamon.
Dinner: Morningstar Farms' California Turk'y Burger & wedge of Laughing Cow classic cream cheese lettuce wrap
And a movie: "The Hunger Games."
Have you ever cooked with amaranth or some other seeds?
Do you roll out on a foam roller? I'm doing it as I watch the movie.
