I feel like dancing! Ok, I really wish I did, so I thought maybe if I said it, I would actually do it…We’ll see!
Yesterday was a bit off, but I got in a SWEET STRENGTH TRAINING REGIME before I went off with my mom to a Japanese Craft Fair in town. I have collected lots of the SELF Pull Out Exercise Cards over the years and pulled them out for some exercise Sunday morning.
You can check out all the moves that I did in the album, and you can see how many I did by the numbers in ball point pen written on the card. Overall the 31 cards took me about an hour and 15 minutes and I sure was a sweaty mess afterwards!!!
Oh, but I wanted to show you all the best way to de-seed a squash…and probably anything else like pumpkins and such: ICE CREAM SCOOPER!!! OMG it made my life that much easier than using a spoon…What’s your secret to de-seeding vegetables?
I also wanted to give you a review on this bar that I got at the Health Expo before my 1/2 Marathon the other weekend! If only I had had some greek yogurt to crumble it on top of…alas, the bar was quite good! It was very very similar to the Pumpkin Crunch Bars by Kashi, and really, I don’t know there was much of a difference! Actually, I think this one tasted less sweet, which is what I like, so three cheers for Cascadian Farms!!!
Blah blah blah about my night and rest of yesterday, lets look at today’s funness so far, shall we?
- 1/3C Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 egg white
- Dash of Vanilla Extract
- Dash of Unsweetened Almond Breeze
I made two pancakes out of the mix and spread 1 Tablespoon of Natural PB between the two, and topped it off with a heated and diced apple in cinnamon.
And we had a can of pumpkin puree that needed to be used, so I went to work. And what else than the great pumpkin recipes on Tina’s Blog? I made her Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins, but in cookie form, and it works! But instead, I used 1/4C agave instead of the sugar, and raisins and some walnut instead of the chocolate and peanut butter chips.
And of course I couldn’t resist not making her Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf, but in muffin form:
I did made a few substitutes though: 1/4C agave nectar instead of either the sugars, 1/2C bittersweet chocolate chips. Yum!
Now my head hurts and I need to eat lunch!
