I realized this morning that I missed a holiday yesterday…National Chocolate Chip Day, which would have been a great excuse to bake up some cookies.
Because I missed this holiday, I immediately wanted to make sure that I didn’t miss another yummy food related holiday. So, I googled “National Food Days” and I found the jackpot. According to this website everyday is dedicated to some food item.
I was planning on writing special days in my calendar, but I didn’t realize that it would be such daunting task. I don’t even know what some of the foods are that are being celebrated, but literally there is a special food for every day.
It just goes to show that there is always a reason to celebrate 😉
This morning after teaching yoga sculpt and a 4 mile run, I attempted to make some protein pancakes again. This time I omitted the protein powder completely.
I am still not ready to share the recipe yet, because I need Brian to taste them. Whenever I make something new, Brian usually has a pretty big say as to whether or not the recipe is a success. I tend to like things that can taste a bit too “healthy” for the normal taste bud. Where Brian is not picky, but he just likes things to taste “good.” Thankfully he will try almost anything I make 🙂 It usually works out in his favor.
If you are wondering what is on top of the cakes, I mixed 1 Tbsp of Pb2 Chocolate with 2 Tbsp of Greek Yogurt and a little bit of water. It was a tasty pancake topping, if you ask me!
I then spent the majority of the morning working on Body Pump (I have to be ready to teach a full class soon and make a video!) and applying for full time jobs…the next thing I knew it was time for my midday meal.
Tuna salad made with a little Greek yogurt and cottage cheese mixed with carrots, onions, celery, garlic salt, and pepper over a bed of lettuce. On the side: celery sticks (my fav!) and cold baked sweet potato (from yesterday) with a little bit of ketchup.
The perfect fuel to get me through the afternoon.
