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
1 medium sweet potato, washed and spiralized
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 sauté 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 :)
Recipe Hint: I’ve been absolutely obsessed with smoothies lately! ;)
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 hand and because it’s impossible for me to not 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… 8-) )
However, I do prefer the density that the version with chickpea flour has.
As you can see, I’ve been busy eating a lot of tasty meals yesterday (and I didn’t even mention my breakfast yesterday!)
You can’t beat dippy eggs on toast ;) 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 day and 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 felt so 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!
