Happy Sunday friends!
I packed a whole lotta fun into this weekend.
In case you missed anything, here’s a list of links to recap:
- I went to the Greek Festival with friends
- I had my first pumpkin oats of the season (and shared a short cut to steel cut oats)
- I went to the best BBQ festival ever
- I had friends over for a healthy cookout
And then we have today…
I’m loving the turquoise set up in our living room right now.
We had a faboo breakfast…err…brunch this morning.
More rye bagels, bacon, fried farmer market egg.
These bagels never get old. Good thing because we have like 20 more of them!
I prepped dinner – another kitchen experiment – Merlot-Braised Pot Roast.
This afternoon I had zumba followed by a choreo session with fellow instructors.
PS A girl in my class had a monitor on and she burned 862 calories! You go girl!
Post-workout, I hit up IKEA and got a cinnamon roll for a snack. I was reminded why I like to eat healthful snacks post workout. While this was quite tasty, it gave me a HUGE sugar rush that I think wouldn’t have happened if I’d had better post-workout fuel beforehand.
When I got home, hubby opened the door for me and I could smell the delicious smell of the pot roast wafting out the door. It smelled amazing!
The pot roast was so tender, I couldn’t even take it out of the slow cooker. It was just falling apart! Love that!
I served the pot roast with homemade red-skin mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.
I want to tweak the recipe a bit more before posting, but I promise to share the vegan quinoa burgers and pumpkin hummus soon!
What’s your normal post-workout fuel?
