New Workouts and Recipes

Sometimes I’m witty and creative, but other times I’m lame and unoriginal. After reading today’s title you can see I’m the latter at the moment.

I have a few new recipes to share with you and a new workout too, but coming up with a clever title for today’s post was not in my realm of capabilities today. So, let’s be direct and get straight to the point!

First, the most delicious meal of my day yesterday…


I made this new creation for lunch yesterday and loved every bite! I’m sure you will too (if you’re a salmon love like me!), so I’ll share the recipe with you today! :)

Sweet Potato “Noodles” with Creamy Miso Dressing and Salmon

Serves 1

1 medium sweet potato, washed and spiralized

olive oil

2 – 3 spoonfuls plain Greek yogurt

1/4 tsp – 1/2 tsp miso paste

almond milk to thin dressing

salmon filet, precooked and serving size of your choice

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add sweet potato and sautรฉ until sweet potato becomes tender. Meanwhile, combine Greek yogurt with miso paste and almond milk. Stir Greek yogurt mixture until miso paste is evenly distributed throughout yogurt. Add Greek yogurt to sweet potato “noodles” and warm. Once warm, transfer to plate. Top with warmed salmon and serve.


I really enjoyed the simplicity of this meal. I tried to plate it attractively, but it was mouth-watering-delicious once I mixed it all together! I highly recommend you try this for lunch or dinner today! Please let me know if you do :)

Another simple and favourite recipe of mine is being shared on Lisa’s blog today. I wrote a guest post for her, so make sure you check that out :)

Recipe Hint: I’ve been absolutely obsessed with smoothies lately! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Before I share a new workout with you, I have one more recipe to share!

Yesterday, I spent the evening baking more of Laura’s Blood Orange Scones.


It’s about the billionth time I’ve made this recipe and each time I make it I’ve formed the scones into cookie shapes instead. I also put my own twist on them as I never buy or have blood oranges on handย andย because it’s impossible for me toย notย put my own spin on things.

Last night was the biggest modification I did to the recipe, though, as I realized I ran out of chickpea flour after deciding to make the recipe, so here is what I used to make these Avocado Cookies based on Laura’s original recipe for Blood Orange Avocado Scones:

1 cup oat flour

1 cup almond flour

1 tsp xantham gum

1 tsp baking powder



4 tbsp almond milk

4 dropper fulls of NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 oz. avocado

They turned out a little more fluffy than when using chickpea flour in replace of oat flour, but they were still great (actually fantastic seeing as how I just baked these last night and there are only 3 left now… ๐Ÿ˜Ž )

However, I do prefer the density that the version with chickpea flour has.

As you can see, I’ve been busy eatingย a lotย of tasty meals yesterday (and I didn’t even mention my breakfast yesterday!)


You can’t beat dippy eggs on toast ๐Ÿ˜‰ but a good workout will always make me happy, too! :)

I was planning on doing Monday’s GPP WOD, but my intuitive self was feeling a heavy lifting dayย andย I could hardly walk because I was experiencing such DOMS in my legs, so I did an upper body workout instead! This is what I did:

Bench press 1 x 15 (warm up set) 4 x 10

Decline push ups 4 x max (haven’t done these in such a long time, so these feltย soย good!)

Shoulder press 4 x 8, 8, 8, 6

DB lateral raise 3 x 10

Parellel bar dips 4 x max

It felt so great to do a new workout that included exercises that I haven’t done in a while! :) My arms were completely jellied by the end! Gosh, I love that feeling :)

I also love opening my inbox to High Five Friday submissions, too, though! :) So, make sure you email me your high fives today! If you’re not familiar with HFF please read more about it here.

Have a great Tuesday, loves!

Meg xo

    I just bought a spiraliser on ebay so once that arrives I will definitely be making this sweet potato dish.

    I’m loving the Spelt Flour Banana Berry Bread I made the other day: http://www.sproutsnsquats.com/2013/05/spelt-flour-berry-banana-bread.html

    I’d share my favourite workout link but I follow a paid program for exercise and I can’t share it. My favourite workout on it recently though was called the ’60 second screamer’ where basically you do circuits of exercises for 60 seconds at a time instead of counting reps. It starts off easy but by the 45 second mark on some exercises your muscles can be screaming at you (hence the name :)

    Ahhh I so wish I had a spiralizer. Those noodles look AMAZING. And we have an extra sweet potato in the house; what are the chances of that? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Eggs with runny yolks over toast are the best! Eggs with runny yolks in general are the best. :)

    We are foodie soul sisters. The sweet potato ‘noodles’ have sealed the deal. I haven’t made them in a while, but I LOVE THEM! Way better than regular noodles. Katie (yesiwantcake) has an awesome recipe that incorporates walnuts, butter, nutmeg, parmesan, etc and it’s seriously one of the best things I’ve ever had.

    I’m craving eggs & toast now. Mmm!

    My workouts are not exciting right now – I’m training for a half marathon distance, so 4-5 days per week consist of running, with yoga & upper body strength training on my rest days.

    Yummmm!! All of your recipes look so delicious! I am a HUGE salmon and sweet potato fan too! What is miso? I know it’s Asian and I have had “miso” soup…but I still don’t know what it is!! Sounds like a great recipe though!

    Sounds like a great upper body workout!

    I’ve never seen a spiralized sweet potato before — I bet it was fun to eat :) Spinning is definitely one of my favorite workouts right now since I’m having to cut back on running a bit.

    Yum I love runny eggs! I can never seem to get them the right runny though. It’s either too much or too little.

    The greek yogurt/miso/almond milk combo is intriguing! I imagine that it would be great with the sweet potato and salmon. I’ll have to give it a try! :)

    Hi Meg! I have been following you for quite some time, but had to pop in and leave you a comment. I am so proud of you for how far you have come with your intuitive eating. As someone who struggled with an eating disorder, I know how hard it can be to change your relationship with food, and I have to applaud you for taking the steps to make that change and focus on eating intuitively. It’s so easy for us women to get trapped in “food prison,” but your efforts to eat intuitively are very admirable! I’m so proud of you and love following your IE journey and new recipes :)

    Health & Happiness xo

    Hey babe!!! Oh man, I miss you like CRAAAAAAAAAAAZY!!! I’ve gotten a bit behind in my blog reading (obviously) so I thought I’d use today to catch up a bit! I saw your smoothie post last week and totally drooled over it, but now I’m drooling again! With the temperatures warming up, I’m back to craving my smoothies…made one yesterday in fact with some of my fresh farmers market kale and strawberries! It was good, but still needs a little work (and for me to remember to take a picture BEFORE adding the kale) before it’s blog-worthy! ๐Ÿ˜‰
