My morning yesterday began with a couple circuit workouts via Lindsay. I began with one round of this pylometrics workout (minus the leg pylo combo simply because I forgot to write it when I copied down the workout) followed by three round of the Hakuna Tabata (love the name) and finished off with a final round of the pylometrics workout. I worked legs at the gym on Monday so plenty of stretching occurred after my workout in an attempt to relieve some soreness. DOMS may just be the death of me someday. Luckily, the short yoga session that happened Tuesday night further helped loosen up my muscles.
I typically have my coffee while working on the computer before eating breakfast. I am still taking my coffee with almond and cashew cream, vanilla stevia drops, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I am getting a bit bored with it though so you may see the return of black coffee around these parts, or whatever else I come up with. For the time being, however, coffee will most likely not be disappearing altogether. Warm drink in the cold season just make sense.
Breakfast was coconut flour pancakes which sadly fell apart so this is a repeat picture. Although they still tasted delicious smothered in peanut butter, I really need to get down my recipe for coconut flour pancakes. I seem to have perfected the consistency of all the other types of pancakes I make with various flours (oat, brown rice, almond meal, etc) but for some reason my coconut flour pancakes almost never stick together. Looking at the above photo makes me wonder what proportions I used for the batch…
Per usual, my midday eats included an assortment of snacks, and I have a hard time even categorizing them into a pretty bold header.
Homemade trail mix. Okay so this was basically just the last of a granola bag that needed to be used up thrown together with raw almonds, dried fruit, Ezekial flax cereal, and broken up pieces of TCHO 70% dark bar. This was eaten alongside my daily chai latte fix.
(1/2 cup unstweened almond milk, 1/2 cup Tazo organic chai concentrate, 1 teaspoon sucanat.)
Apple Pie Larabar.
This was the granola I munched a but on before decided I would rather use up one of my ancient bags.
Some unpictured fruit occurrences happened in here as well. Loving fall produce!
Dinner was a clean out my pantry type of bowl.
This one had kelp noodles that I unearthed from the back of my pantry cabinet, quinoa that was in my freezer that I defrosted on the stove, steamed kale, raw nori, raisins, currants, raw cashews, homemade hummus, an egg, and flax seeds. I drizzled some Bragg liquid aminos, ginger juice, and honey over the top before eating. This meal was surprisingly delicious and satisfying. I should designate more nights as clean out my overflowing pantry nights.
Also, would anyone like that hummus recipe? It is pretty simple but could easily be typed up for you all.
My evening snack was a mix of yummy items that pretty much follow the same clean out the pantry/ fridge/ freezer theme of dinner. Honeycrisp apple with peanut butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips, part of a KIND peanut butter and dark chocolate bar, and gluten-free brownies.
Do you make your own trail mix?
Anyone have a tried and true coconut flour pancake recipe to share?
