she put the lime in the coconut

Happy Hump Day only two more days till the weekend!

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted very many dinners lately it’s because they haven’t been anything special. I guess you could say I’m in a dinner rut.

Breakfast and lunch have been pretty fun lately.

Monday’s breakfast:

Heart-shaped pancakes topped with reddi wip, a drizzle of kodiac cakes mountain berry syrup and a sprinkle of L.O.V.E

Tuesday’s lunch:

Green egg (spinach-artichoke dip) sandwich on breadsmith multi-grain bread, with a side of carrot sticks and a simple salad. The salad was mixture of romaine lettuce and cilantro drizzled with salt, pepper and fresh squeezed lime juice.

The star of the lunch was a yogurt parfait. Layers of  low-fat vanilla yogurt and mixed frozen berries topped with granola and a H.E.A.R.T, made for a good ending.

Todays breakfast:

A bowl of  mom’s best malllow-oats with 1/2 TLC pumpkin spice granola bar, 1/2 sliced banana and a sprinkle of chia seeds.

and lunch:  

Pork tenderloin over a bed of romaine, cilantro, cucumber, tomato slices and some H.O.T salsa. I made another simple salad dressing with fresh squeezed lime juice and little salt and pepper.

Another yogurt parfait.

This time I mashed up a 1/2 sweet potato seasoned with cinnamon and layered it between some lfv yogurt. Topped with a sprinkle of granola and banana slices.

I’m not sure what I’m having for dinner tonight. I told you I was in a rut! I think I’ll head over to peas and crayons and look for some inspiration.

But before I do, here’s a quick recap of today’s workout(s).

75 minutes of Ashtanga yoga. I normally do Vinyasa but today I stepped out side the box and tried something new! If you’re not familiar with yoga Ashtanga is a good place to start. It’s a series of poses that become the building blocks to any style of yoga. I sweat my little heart out! If you don’t think yoga is good workout, give it a try, and then tell me what you think.

Ashtanga

Description:Breath, bhandas and drisiti! Ashtanga is the building block of Vinyasa Flow yoga, and learning aspects of the full Primary Series will help you feel comfortable in just about any class. Perfect for new students and the well seasoned practitioner. -TYC-

 

After class I laced up my shoes, grabbed a ZICO, put the lime in the coconut and ran for 45 minutes outside. It was a sunny 65 degrees today! It felt like Spring. Speaking of Spring do you need a new nail polish color for your toesies?

Happy Hump Day again and Shanti (peace),

Maria
