Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great morning, or to my East coast friends, great afternoon! Yesterday’s eats were delish so let’s get right to the nitty gritty…and then I’ll touch on today’s interesting title 😉
Yesterday morning before work I made a stop at the grocery store to pick up some essentials (milk, yogurt, bananas, strawbs, etc.) and I stumbled upon a new to me cereal that I had been seeing all around the blog world…
Fiber One Honey Squares cereal! And with 80 calories and 10 grams of fiber per serving, sign me up 🙂 And if you click this link you’ll be directed to the Fiber One website and you can print out a $1.75 coupon to use on that cereal!
For me, the best way to try out a new cereal is to incorporate it into a yogurt bowl so that’s exactly what I did…
1 cup Fage yogurt with Fiber One cereal, puffins, and strawberries. Side salad of butter lettuce with sauteed red bell pepper, zucchini, with a drizzle of homemade Italian balsamic vinaigrette.
Dinner was a definite highlight! My hubby is the chef in this house, a special thanks goes out to his mama (Hi East Coast Mom!) for that ;), and he got to work on healthified chicken parmesan sandwiches!
This morning hubby and I got in a sweaty Bootcamp workout and it’s suffice to say our booty’s were sufficiently kicked today 🙂
Got home, showered, blow dried my hair, and as I was putting it up I noticed none other than a GRAY HAIR!! Ahhhh! Mind you, this is the fifth gray hair I’ve found in the last couple months….I guess I’m getting older!?! I’m a bit shocked that at 29 I’m sprouting gray hairs along with some deep laugh/smile lines and crows feet…but in actuality it doesn’t freak me out at all and I think it builds character. To me, the signs of aging all signify milestones in your life and I think we should all embrace the inner and outer beauty of aging…although that’s not to say I’m not going to color my hair to cover those pesky lil gray’s 😉
Side note: How the heck to you spell the color gray? Is it grey or gray? I Googled it (what did we do before Google?!) and according to Wikipedia grey is the British form of spelling it and gray is the American way of spelling it. Huh, you learn something new everyday 🙂 Did you all know that?!
Since this morning was a more weight based workout with cardio intervals, I took to the smoothie to get in some nutrients that were easy to digest and for those growing muscles to quickly absorb!
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 frozen banana
1 scoop Vanilla Casein Protein Powder
1 tbsp. Chia Seeds!!
Did you know Chia Seeds are a brain food??!! According to Dr. Oz (sent from my lovely mom, thanks mom!) Chia Seeds rank #2, right below Lentils, in boosting brain health…
Chia seed or salmon – are high in Omega-3 fatty acids and have been found to assist in keeping arteries in the brain clear of plaque. Omega 3’s also protect neurons and may prevent memory impairment as well. (source) Interesting stuff huh?!
I hope you all have a wonderful day! I’m headed off soon to lunch with my coworkers to Mimi’s Cafe, yum!
Questions: Have you made a healthified chicken parmesan sandwich? If not, try mine!
Are you or have you experienced any signs of aging in your 20’s?
Do you eat Chia Seeds? How do you incorporate them into your diet? I would love to know new ways instead of just smoothies and oatmeal 🙂
