Luckily, the treat I received at work today was healthy!
My coworker, Beth, gave me this refreshing bottle of mandarin orange sparkling water, ahhh.
As much as I enjoy the chocolate treats, I was happy to have something more low cal!
After work I quickly changed and ran a quick mile! Then I headed to a lifting class called Rush Hour. It is similar to Body Pump but less repetition and more variety. I haven’t gone in over a month and it was definitely a challenge! By the time I was gone my legs were shaking.
I hurried home for dinner where I made Trader Joe’s pot roast, Israeli couscous and green beans. And a glass of homemade iced tea!
Israeli couscous is so tasty! I added pine nuts and chicken broth to my batch. And I toasted the couscous before adding the liquid to add some nutty-ness.
I’m not huge on red meat but ah, so tender and flavorful.
Fresh beans. No salt, no nothin’.
Great home cooked meal!
While I was making dinner I also made a treat to bring into work 😀
Homemade white bean hummus!
If I can remember correctly…
• 1 can of white beans ( I used a little less because I had used some from the can already)
•1 clove of garlic
• 1 teaspoon of oregano
•1/2 tsp cumin
•1/4 cup chopped g reen onions
•2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
•2 tablespoons of tahini (which I left out because I didn’t have any)
Throw it all in the food processor and…
Nom! Grab a chip and get dippin!
And for my final activity of the night…
All packed and ready to go to Daytona Florida to see my best friend
