So much to the point I could have it multiple times a day. Today I woke up hungry and sometimes (okay, always) I don’t have patience to make anything. So I’m glad I made it last night.
- 1/3 C. GF Rolled Oats
- 1 C. Almond Breeze Vanilla unsweetened Almond milk
- 2 T. Chia seeds
- 1/2 scoop Protein_ I used Elite (by Dymatize Nutrition) Vanilla
- Cinnamon to taste
- Top with favorite fruit. Or not.
* Have sweet dreams
Wake up and enjoy! No waiting, no cooking, no chopping.
You could even mix it in a Tupperware and take it to go!
I mentioned in my last post that it is “Hellth” week at GPP
Let me just tell you..
My hamstrings have never been so sore in all my life. The next 3 WOD are the toughest.. I hope I can walk come Sunday.
I love the challenge that this week brings. Its just hard. And I get a crazy sense of satisfaction from each and every workout.
Through the intense challenge of this week, I have realized a few things.
1.My diet changes. For some reason when I’m sore.. I think more food will aid in recovery.
For Example: Yesterday, I consumed 3 HUGE bowls of Honey Nut Chex in one sitting simply because my hamstrings said so.
Today, that box of cereal is gone. I had a little help.. not much. I think Brent was able to consume 1 serving. (I am a cereal fiend.. I can’t keep it in my house or it disappears.. too fast.) – that and cereal is crazy expensive so I just do my wallet and rear a favor and don’t buy it, except upon special request from Brent… or my hamstrings.
2. I have never been more thankful for my foam roller. I literally sat on it for 45 minutes today.
3. I’ve never been so excited for Sunday to come.. (its my rest day)
I taught pump tonight and after a quick trip to the grocery store came home made some eggs and veggies for dinner.
Looks fantastic right?
5 egg whites, onions, red pepper, mushrooms and spinach. Sprinkled with Mrs. Dash. I
I know it doesn’t look amazing but it taste good and is a great post-workout meal.
Q. Do you eat more when your sore? Carbs? Sugar?
Yes, honey nut Chex has been proven to aid in recovery…..
Q. What is your favorite cereal?
Honey nut Chex.. after its been soaking in almond milk for precisely 7 minutes.
