We can’t get enough of hemp hearts… we are GASP out of chobani (I may have had two in one day the other day – oops!) Seriously, these hemp hearts are ruling our breakfast now …
Jason asked this morning “What can I have for breakfast so I can have hemp hearts?” He called them “one of those miracle foods”.
I need to get to the chob. store, stat. It’s our favorite way to do hemp hearts.
I made a pretty darn great smoothie for breakfast, though.
One serving was:
5 tablespoons hemp hearts (recommended daily serving)
1 serving vanilla protein
1 cup water
That’s it! It was filling – I didn’t eat second breakfast until um, lunch. Generally I’m ready for Second Breakfast after my morning run. I even did Gina’s awesome daily challenge after my run!
taken from The Fitnessista Facebook page:
“today’s challenge: run in place 1 minute, jumping jacks 45 seconds, wall push ups 30 seconds, tricep dips 30 seconds, reverse plank 30 seconds, side plank 20 seconds, full plank 20 seconds, side plank (opposite side) 20 seconds, 30 crunches. go go go!”
I love a plank. I don’t know how or why. I was in an awesome bootcamp 2 years ago (cut short when my appendix burst in two – not at bootcamp, tho-) and bootcamp made me LOVE planks. Love. I’m not so good with the crunches, though. I think I’ll do this again tomorrow…
So, Second Breakfast was later than usual, because those hemp hearts keep me going. Second Breakfast was one of these:
toasted with some Tofutti Better Than Creme Cheese:
Lunch came not too long after. The last of the Caesar salad:
So good! I snacked on these all day:
Whit had an auction last week, to benefit The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. I donated some cookies.
Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chunk Almond Butter Cookies.
Here’s the regular cast of characters:
A normal recipe is:
one cup almond butter
one cup sugar
I made a double batch, and chopped up two of these:
All packed up! I hope my bidder enjoys these!
It has been a long day – in a good way! I had a good deal of Fun Work on my to do list today. My brain is exhausted. Jason declared “computer free evening”, so I’m closing my laptop and we’re going to hang out with this little one:
Hope everyone’s Monday was great! Good night!
