I absolutely did not want to get out of bed this morning! It was cold and raining! Definately sleep in weather! Sadly I have to work for a living so I got up and trudged in! I was getting bored of oats and yogurt for breakfast so I switched things up. Today I had Van's Flaxseed waffles with Trader Joe's crunchy almond butter and strawberry All-Fruit. So good! As always a nice cup of tea! Stash organic English Breakfast this morning!
Since it was cold and nasty I had soup for lunch! This is my favorite soup, Trader Joe's lentil vegetable. It's delicious! On the side I had a whole wheat pita with a wedge of Laughing Cow light garlic and herb. Quick and easy!
After work I had to get some groceries! I broke the cardinal rule of grocery shopping and went to the store hungry! I wanted everything in the store! I found a great deal on pork tenderloin! I got a one pound tenderloin for $2.94!!! I grabbed it up because I had the perfect recipe to go with it! Emeril's simple grilled pork tenderloin! Very easy to make and so good. It says to marinate overnight but I only marinated it for about an hour! To go with it I chopped some apples and cooked them on the stove with lemon juice, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. I also grabbed up some zuchinni and summer squash and sauteed them in olive oil on the stove. Definately one of my favorite quick sides. This dinner was SO GOOD! I grilled the pork on the George Foreman grill and it was ready in about 15 minutes! While the pork was marinating I got started on dessert. A few weeks ago I read about a pear bread on The Fit Bride blog and knew I wanted to try it. The original recipe was from All Recipes. I made a few changes such as using whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/4 cup of oil, and using Sugar in the Raw. The batter was so good I was tempted to just eat it and skip the baking step! :P The finished product was delicious too! My husband is in love. It makes two loaves and I'm not sure they'll last the night!
See I couldn't even get a picture before he ate the end of this loaf!
I did skip kickboxing tonight just because I've felt a bit rundown this week and I had to get groceries and do some laundry. I didn't skip working out though! I pulled out 30 Day Shred and did level 1. I haven't done the video in months and I'm glad to say my heart rate is much lower doing it now than last time! I also did a 10 minute yoga abs workout. I've packed my lunch and I'm ready to head to bed! Glad tomorrow is Friday!
