It’s getting chilly! I know summer isn’t over yet and I expect it to heat up again but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. It’s tricky this time of year; you whip out your favorite sweatpants in the morning but you run the risk of being a bit overdressed when it heats up around lunchtime.
We’ve been hitting up as many farmers markets as we can lately. Food inspiration for me and games for the little dude. I have been craving beets but haven’t seen them anywhere. Must not be in season yet. Next on my crave list was zucchini boats.
Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all. I had a few vegetables I needed to clean out of the fridge before they went bad so I sautéed some onion, garlic, yellow pepper and mushroom. Added some ground chicken, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Filled each “boat” then topped with cheese. 400* for 30 minutes.
On mine I added avocado and salsa right before I served it. The little guy got picky and refused to eat it. I managed to convince him to at least eat the middle part. He eats plenty of veggies, needed to get some more protein in him.
I’m happy. It’s not often I perfect a recipe but I did. I made the most fantastic Golden Milk. And it’s not putting a dent in my macros either.
Heat on the stove; 2 C of almond milk, 1.4 tsp turmeric, 1 T honey, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Oh my. Only downside of this is that I drink it too fast. Next up, Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk.
Everyone knows the benefits of working out; cardiovascular health, weight loss, reduced stress levels….etc etc. You’ve heard it over and over. I actually see it as more than just the obvious.
Writers block at work? Go workout.
Cant stop snacking? (for those that work from home) Go workout.
Restless? Go workout.
Time to kill between meetings and don’t want to do housework? Go workout.
Upset? Go workout.
Stuck on a problem? Go workout.
I’m in marketing and anytime I’m stuck on a problem, need ideas or get my creative juices flowing; I go work out. (ideas actually come to me in the shower too)
If I ever owned a business, or at least managed one, I would probably replace one of the conference room tables with treadmills.
Now time to put on my mommy hat. Make breakfast, pack a lunch and get this little man to school. Happy Fri-YAY!
