First, the food:
I decided not to cook any full meals this week because I still have a ton of frozen leftovers. So I’m gonna keep working my way through that. But I cooked up some snacks n’ things.
- 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans – drained and rinsed
- Garlic Powder
- Little bit of Cumin
- Approx 1 T. Olive Oil
I didn’t measure out the spices, I just, started sprinkling, but I used more garlic powder, and less of everything else. Sorry, I know that’s not very helpful. I’ll measure next time I make these, because they’re really good.
For dinner I had:
In the bowl
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Roma Tomato
- 1/4 c. cooked qunioa
- Handful of baked tofu
- Splash of basalmic vinegar dressing
I really prefer baked tofu to fried/stir-fried, mostly because it’s less messy. You basically cut it up into 1-inch cubes and bake for ~40 mins, flipping in the middle. Easy.
I also made some homemade Lara Bars:
Again, my version does not look as nice, but it is tasty. I made the Chocolate Craving Bars by Living Crunch. I cut them up into bars later and wrapped them in cling wrap for later =)
So, Day 20 topic is 5 fitness items I can’t live without.
#1: The Swimsuit
I swam competitively for…forever. A long time. Even though I’m not competing anymore, I still love to get in the pool a few times a week and show off a little 😉
Can’t run without them!
#3: My SPI Belt
Wow, this thing is handy. My dad bought it for me in college when I was rollerblading all the time and I complained that I didn’t know where to put my car keys. Speaking of…
These don’t get quite as much use as they did in Indiana because it’s really hard for me to skate over all the hills here, but I still try to get out there and rollerblade. It can be a great workout.
I will never be a competitive biker…but I love to get out and ride around town as much as I can. Greenville is becoming more and more bike friendly and someday I won’t have to fear quite so much for my life when I’m riding.
Yea, I spend a lot of time here, but it’s not really an item. =)
Any fitness items you can’t live without?
