What I Ate Wednesday!

Wow! I have been gone nearly a month! I am so grateful for all those that kept coming to the blog to visit and read some old posts!

Now that I am done with my project I was contracted to do and we are finally settling in to our life here in Amsterdam I hope to not be so overwhelmed and be back to blogging at my regular rate!

What I Ate Wednesday is one of my favorite days to post because I love, love, love to brag about all the yummies I have been making/eating. This past week has been particularly delicious. Most of these you can see over on Instagram far my favorite social media platform so if you aren't following me please do & leave me a comment or something so I can follow ya back! Anyway, back to the topic at hand...

First, I want to start off with this awesome new product find:

No added sweeteners or thickeners. It is a combo of rice and almonds. It is the perfect complement to all my dishes. I have been looking for something like this for quite some time...I was ready to get the carageenan (or however you spell it) out of my diet and any artifical sweeteners and this is the drink! So, so, so, so, so lucky to have found it! Now, join me over here and tell me how to decipher this label! haha

Banana Pancakes
I will be honest these took a bit to get used to the texture, but they are so delicious!
1 banana mashed up really good until it is almost smooth
2 eggs whisked
Pour the eggs into the banana and whisk together until it gets a bit foamy at the edges and the egg & banana are well incorporated. Pour into a pan in small batches, watch the edges and when they seem ready flip them over & cook for about 30 seconds to a minute on the other side!
Top with your favorite healthy ingredients: I love peanut butter or almond butter & cinnamon!

Egg & cheese scramble with sweet potatoes and a sliced peach

Lunch was this amazing oatmeal bowl. I know it looks weird but it is just oatmeal cooked in water with chia seeds, goji berries, blueberries, strawberries. When it was done cooking I topped it with some Rude Health Almond Milk, some peanut butter, and some coconut oil.

Zucchini stuffed with brown rice, pecans, onions, carrots, and the zucchini "meat" and then topped with a half slice of gouda! So yum!

Delicious snack-Pink Lady & PB...*nom*nom*

Afternoon pick-me-up

So, that is it for what I ate.

To counter act all that and keep up my fitness routine I've been running, almost up to a 5K. I took it slow getting back into running because I am very prone to shin splints and aches in my knee and hip. I didn't want to hit the ground running at a 10K and injure myself so I started with C25K Free from  the iTunes store and am almost done. I've been doing that and 30 days of Yoga . It feels so good to do something so restorative each and every day.

What have you been doing for workouts? Anything cool or exciting I should check out? Anyone heard of slacklining? If so, give me info!
