Some days I think I am certifiable.
Side note: Bat-shit crazy is actually the name of the group text between my mom, sisters, and me.
So… we know I tore my ACL. How about 6 days later I decided I’d still participate in a 22 mile bike ride? I mean… I’d already registered and paid the fee…
Vegas was so mad she would barely speak to me.
It was actually fine. I think it helped workout out some of the swelling. As long as I don’t do any side-to-side motion, I can move about as I please… as long as it’s just biking and walking (and it’s a bit slow and involves a teensy limp).
If it’s not a BAD tear, you can try to rehab it. I’ve sent my MRI to the guy that fixed the ligament in my ankle with PRP to see what he thinks… *fingers crossed*
We went for yogurt bowls at breakfast today. It was a sort of #strangebutgood concoction… I wasn’t sure if Vegas would eat the purple sweet potato on top, but she actually said she loved it!
In the bowl:
- 1/2 C greek yogurt
- 1/2 scoop Growing Naturals Chocolate Rice protein powder
- 1/4 almond milk
- 1/2 T cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Toppings: purple sweet potato, blueberries, Cheerios
This is how you do a quickie chicken salad! I mixed mine with tzatziki… Vegas intervened and mixed hers with mustard and mayo. You can’t win ’em all… 😉
It's cloudy and windy today… What gives, San Diego?! I wanted to sleep in but got up, worked, went to the dentist, worked out, and made Vegas and I lunch. Quickie chicken salad – @wfmhillcrest rotisserie chicken tossed with tzatziki, cucumber, spinach, arugula, raw asparagus, and tomatoes. Side of Seeduction bread (check out my secret to that deliciousness a few pasts back). Annnnnd… Back to work I go. Cheers!
I still love to make my Cauliflower Pizza crust. It’s a few years old, and one of the few recipes I repeat regularly. Even Vegas likes it, so that’s a huge win.
Made my cauliflower crust pizza for dinner. I created this dairy-free, grain-free crust when I was doing competitions like 4 years ago and I still make it all the time. The recipe is on my blog (Google sprint 2 the table cauliflower crust). It's super easy an you can pick it up by the slice! Tonight's was topped with pesto, arugula, onion, and @cottercrunch creamy garlic mushroom toast (with a few modifications because I'm incapable of following a recipe). It was insanely good. Vegas even liked it – she thanked me for dinner and said "I really like that pizza." That's a win. 👍🏼
I topped this creation with pesto, arugula, and Lindsay’s Creamy Garlic Mushrooms. She use hers to top toast, but I took a few liberties…
I followed her procedure, but added an extra garlic clove and 1/2 a red onion. I also used a mix if about 1 T cream cheese yand 1 T milk instead of the cream… because I didn’t have cream.
You should try this. It was awesome.
Unpictured cookie thanks to a friend who brought me get well cookies. I love/hate her for that. 😉
Soooo… no Thailand. But I did pick up a few new clients which is making for a crazy-busy April. Yay!
Are you forever looking for alternative ways to heal yourself?
Would you eat sweet potatoes on your yogurt bowl? Clearly I love them IN bowls.
