Today was rather… uneventful. But I do like days like this every so often, and today was a good one. I had to drive my sister to a train this morning, so today’s workout was later than usual – I even ate a real breakfast before hand!
I know it’s always better to do a workout with something in your stomach, but when I do it first thing in the morning I always feel sluggish and have digestion issues – unless I have at least an hour digest a meal. My early morning pre-workout fuel: 1 cup (or less) of coffee with unsweetened soy milk, and 1/2 to a whole banana, depending on how hungry I am.
Time to re-stock on some favorites!
Involving trip to TJ’s of course, where I finally got some real cereal.
We’ll see how it is, I’ve never been a huge fan of cereal, but this looked good, whole, and simple (and cheap!) so I figured I’d give it a try.
Veggie plate with sauteed tempeh – in water, 2-4 mins each side. Doing this retains the raw flavor, but softens it up a bit and takes away some of the bitterness. Served with quick savory yogurt sauce: 1/2 serving greek yogurt, 1T nooch, 1t tamari or Bragg’s, 1/2 t tahini, herbs and spices to taste (i used basil)
I love these fresh veggies on hot summer days.

- I’m going to start working on a recipe page, once I get a few more posted
- Any requests for types of posts you’d like to see more of on here?
Also, I’ve decided I’m going to try to limit my sugar for the next day or two – I’ve been slightly crazy for the sugar, and I want to curb that addiction before it really gets bad.
