Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a great Monday.
I have realized that I have been in kind of a rut lately when it comes to exercise. I know exactly which machines at the gym will give me the most calorie burn in the least amount of time. I know which strength training moves aren’t too difficult. The problem with this is I know that my body will not progress if I don’t shock it with something new!
So I thought, I’d ask you all, what exercises are you doing right now? How often do you switch up your routine?
As for food, I haven’t really made anything new lately. Had another Amy’s pizza. I have LOVING the low-sodium spinach one. It is just so good!
It pairs quite nicely with a salad. My favorite veggies for a salad are broccoli, radishes, romaine lettuce, red cabbage and shredded carrots. Topped with my homemade ranch, it is amazing.
(Edited to add the ranch dressing recipe I have been using lately:
1 6 oz container of plain greek yogurt
2 tbsp daisy sour cream
1 clove garlic mashed with 1/8 tsp kosher salt to make a garlic paste
1 tbsp chopped chives
1 tbsp chopped green onion
I have been blending the yogurt by itself first to make it a thinner consistency without having to add anything else. Then adding the rest of the ingredients and stirring together.
The amount of servings depends on how much you want on your salad. I have been getting away with four-six servings out of this.)
And we had black bean burgers the other night too. The recipe we use is here www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
My favorite part is the potatoes. Sprayed with olive oil spray and topped with some pepper, parsley and chives. YUM
I also tried a vegan cupcake from New Seasons. It was a bit dry, but otherwise pretty tasty. Next time, I think I will make my own sweet treat. It will probably be cheaper and I know I can make something that is a lot moister.
As always, let me know if you have tried any new recipes lately!
