A Restful Week[end] & Gingerbread Molasses Oatmeal

Happy New Year week! I don’t know about you, but I have some big plans for this week.

Last week I got sick and it knocked me on my butt for longer than I had expected. It pretty much hit Monday night and I was out of commission for a few days; though that didn’t stop my Christmas plans! It did, however, stop me from hitting the gym. I went Monday after work, but haven’t been back since. I know I needed to rest and not push my body; I know I needed to just let whatever was in my system play out and not stress about getting in a workout. And I’m sure my body was craving a full week of rest.. the last time I took this long off, it was for the honeymoon! So we took time off and we relaxed. A lot.

We made a roaring fire!

We baked some get-better quick chocolate chip cookies [I swear, they worked!] with a side of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout and Ratatouille.. the movie, not the dish šŸ˜‰

We had a quiet Saturday and a nice lunch out.

And we made a special Sunday morning trip for fresh bread and breakfast. [I need to make some 5-grain porridge!]

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my rest and relaxation. There was something just so nice about not having to set my alarm each night to make sure I get in my workout before our day’s plans. That said, it’s time to get back on track. But I’m lacking some serious motivation. I have my workout plan in place for the week and my big goal for the week with my diet is to chillax on the extra snacking. I think once I get back into the gym for the first time, I’ll get back into the swing of things, but I’m also hoping I can count on some extra push from all of you! Commit to 30 minutes of fitness each day this week with me, will ya? Let’s start off 2015 on the right foot!

And start your day off on the right foot too; don’t forget to eat breakfast everyday. Need a new oatmeal recipe? This one uses my favorite flavors of the season and is packed with protein and fiber.

Gingerbread Molasses Oatmeal

Serves 1
Gingerbread Molasses Oatmeal | Barr & Table

Ingredients
– 1/2 banana; mashed
– 1/3 cup almond milk [I love Califia Farms Coconut Almond Milk]
– 1/3 cup water
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp ground ginger
– 1/8 tsp ground allspice
– 1 tsp blackstrap molasses
– 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats

Don’t forget a successful week also comes from a bit of planning. I like to have a set plan for our dinners, not only to know what’s on the menu each night, but it also helps to save money at the store so we don’t just pick up random items. We also have a bunch of leftovers from last week/weekend cooking so we’ll be taking full advantage of that this week too!

Foodie Friday: Green Monster Protein Shake {No Protein Powder}

I haven’t been the only one around here recently that has been feeling the ramifications of our outings. A couple weeks ago, Nathan asked if I would make him a breakfast shake. Obviously I wanted to make sure it was something that would fill him up but since he’s not a protein powder fan, I wanted to make some adjustments to the typical recipes I find. I also wanted to sneak as many extra healthy ingredients in there as I could šŸ˜‰

It just so happens, a few weeks ago my friends over at Kiss Me Organics asked if I wanted to review their Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. One of my most favorite smoothies I’ve had was a matcha smoothie from a restaurant in Baltimore, so of course I jumped at the opportunity to make my own.

Kiss Me Organics Matcha Powder

If you’re not familiar with matcha, you should know that it has some wonderful health benefits:

  • Increased energy and focus
  • Increased metabolism
  • High in antioxidants
  • Improved skin health

Nathan had no idea how healthy I was trying to make him! This smoothie is the perfect combination of healthy fats, carbs, and protein. And he liked it! šŸ˜‰

Green Monster Protein Shake [No Protein Powder]

Serves 1

– 3-5 medium strawberries
– 1/3 cup pineapple
– 1 tbsp hemp seed
– 1 tsp Kiss Me Organics matcha powder
– 1/4 medium avocado
– 1 cup almond milk [I use Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze]
– 3-5 ice cubes

I sometimes adjust the amount of fruit, specifically the pineapple and strawberries, depending on their sweetness. I’ve also used kale instead of spinach before, just a bit less since it can be bitter. It’s a great, refreshing way to start the day.

Foodie Friday: Peanut Butter Banana Protein Souffle Pancake

The other day, Nathan was looking for restaurants to try for breakfast during his mom’s visit and came across this amazing creation. Holy cannoli! I’m not usually one for ordering pancakes when we go out, but I seriously had to consider at least getting one for the table to try. Of course, then I couldn’t stop thinking about this amazing-looking souffle pancake. So much so that I was laying in bed that night thinking about ways to make a healthier version for breakfast the next day.

I mentally put a list of ingredients together and decided I needed to give it a whirl. I was so excited when it turned out so well and had to remind myself to slow down a few times because it was so good! Because of the whipped egg whites, this souffle pancake has a much lighter, fluffier texture than a typical pancake. And by using peanut flour over all-purpose flour, it adds an extra protein punch and a ton of extra flavor.

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Souffle Pancake

Serves 1

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Souffle Pancake

Ingredients
– 3 egg whites
– 1 egg
– 1/4 cup peanut flour [I use Protein Plus Peanut Flour]*
– 1/2 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/4 cup almond milk [I use Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla]
– 8 drops liquid stevia [if using unsweetened peanut flour – I use NuNaturals Vanilla]*
– 1/2 banana; sliced

Directions
Preheat oven to 375Ā°F and place a 10″ pan over medium heat. In a medium bowl, whisk the 3 egg whites until thick and white with stiff peaks.

In a separate bowl, add the rest of the ingredients except banana. Mix those ingredients together until well incorporated, then gently fold in the whipped egg whites. Be careful not to mix too much as it could deflate the whites. Spray the pan with cooking spray and pour your mixture in. Let the mixture set about 2 minutes before placing the banana slices on top.

Once the slices are placed on top, turn the burner off and place the pan in the oven. Let bake about 7-10 minutes until it is completely set. Remove from the oven and set aside for 1-2 minutes. Carefully slide the souffle pancake onto a plate and top with your favorite toppings. I just so happened to have a fresh batch of coconut cashew butter just waiting to be drizzled on top!

Cottage Cheese Oats

Sounds kind of bizarre, right? Well it’s not. I promise!

I knew that I needed to have a nice, big bowl of oats for breakfast yesterday now that Passover had ended but we were low on eggs [my go-to protein to add into my oats]. I wanted to try something different for a change and gave the cottage cheese a go. The oats came out nice and creamy with just a slight cheesiness to them. It was really great so I had to share!

Cottage Cheese Oats

Makes 1 serving

Daisy Cottage Cheese Oats

Ingredients
– 1/2 banana; mashed
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/3 cup water
– 1/3 cup cottage cheese [I use low fat Daisy]
– 1/3 cup rolled oats [I use Bob’s Red Mill]
– Splash of almond milk [optional]

Toppings
– 1 tbsp nut butter
– 1 tbsp granola [the Banana Bread Granola is perfect!]
– A little extra cinnamon

Directions
Place a small pot over medium-high heat. Add in banana, cinnamon, water, and cottage cheese. Mix thoroughly and bring to a boil before adding in the oats. Once boiling, mix in the oats and cook until desired texture is reached, about 5-10 minutes. I like add a splash of almond milk at the end and let cook another minute; I think this makes it extra creamy! Toss your toppings on and enjoy!

Foodie Friday: Pancake Variations

It’s clearly been a week of pancakes. These pancakes are delicious and I love the stats.. you can’t beat 350 cals, 35g protein, and 15g fiber! I’ve had far too much fun playing with the flavor combos [ok, not really too much fun..] so I wanted to share a couple successes.

It all started with the original..

Peanut Butter ‘Cake’ Coconut Flour Pancakes

via Dashing Dish

Makes 6-7 pancakes for 1 serving

Peanut Butter 'Cake' Coconut Flour Pancakes - Dashing Dish

Peanut Butter ‘Cake’ Coconut Flour Pancakes – Dashing Dish

Ingredients
– 5 tbsp coconut flour
– 1/4 tsp baking powder
– 2 tsp peanut butter or 2 tbsp peanut flour [I chose peanut flour]
– 1-2 pkts stevia or sweetener of choice [I used 16 drops of liquid stevia]
– Pinch of salt
– 7 egg whites
– 1/4 – 1/2 cup water

Directions
Place a pan over medium heat. In a medium size bowl, mix all ingredients together except the water. As they all come together, slowly add the water a little bit at a time until a thick batter forms. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan per pancake and cook until they become a little bubbly around the edges. Flip the pancakes and cook through.

In between each pancake and atop of the stack, I covered them with more peanut fluff [1 1/2 tbsp peanut flour, ~3 drops liquid stevia, and water] and a little granola.

Next up came the Banana Coconut variety. These look beautious but the flavors need a little work. I’ll report back soon šŸ˜‰

Then I knew it was time to go for pumpkin.

Pumpkin Coconut Flour Pancakes

Ingredients
– 5 tbsp coconut flour
– 1/4 tsp baking powder
– 1/4 cup pumpkin [NOT pumpkin pie filling!]
– 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

– 16 drops of liquid stevia
– Pinch of salt
– 7 egg whites
– 1/4 – 1/2 cup water

I swapped out the peanut butter for pumpkin and added some pumpkin pie spice and it was fabulous! I also topped [and layered] these with pumpkin peanut fluff [1 1/2 tbsp peanut flour, 2 tbsp pumpkin, ~4 drops liquid stevia, pumpkin pie spice, and water] and of course a little granola.

My final flavor of the week involved some of my absolute favorite flavors in the world!

Reese’s Coconut Flour Pancakes

Ingredients

– 1/4 tsp baking powder
– 2 tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder
– 16 drops of liquid stevia
– Pinch of salt
– 7 egg whites
– 1/4 – 1/2 cup water

This time, I swapped in the cocoa powder and topped/layered with regular peanut fluff and a sprinkling of granola.

To say this was a good breakfast week would be an understatement! Time to load up on eggs again and get back to work šŸ˜‰

Five Things Friday

It’s Friday!! We made it! And now all we have to do is make it through today and then it’s time for the weekend. Ahhhhh šŸ™‚

  1. Thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments on yesterday’s post. I was a bit nervous to hit publish as I’ve not really had any personal posts on my blog yet, but I do plan on keeping it up after seeing the response.
  2. On my walk to work, I pass a breakfast place and can sometimes get a little whiff of some bacon, pancakes, and waffles. Nine times outta ten it doesn’t phase me but man, I could have gone for a plate of bacon this morning!
    Thick Cut Bacon

    Thick cut. Only thick cut will do.

    And speaking of bacon, we went over to the Fells Point Farmers’ Market a couple weeks ago so Nathan could try the famous BLT from Peter’s Inn and I’m pretty sure there was at least half of a pig on the sandwich. If you like a good BLT, this is place to get it! But go early because they sell out! Nathan got the very last one!

  3. I can’t believe we’re already halfway through another round of Best Body Bootcamp! It always flies by so quickly and this time is no different. And this week has been awesome.. I cut 6 minutes off of my time for Monday’s workout and 5 minutes off of my time for today’s workout! I can’t wait to do the fitness test again on Sunday and see if I’ve improved.

  4. The weather this week has been outrageously beautiful! I can’t believe it’s in the 80s in October! I definitely took advantage of dresses, skirts, and sandals this week.
  5. And speaking of the weather, we’re supposed to have a perfect weekend. They’re calling for upper 80s which sounds wonderful to me and just in time for the Fells Point Festival! We’ve never been and I’m hoping to make it over there at some point during the weekend.

What I Ate Wednesday #53: A Couple New Faves

Happy Wednesday, friends! Nathan sent me this video yesterday and I had to share it. This guy is incredibly inspirational and it’s so nice to see someone with such a positive attitude. It’s definitely worth the watch.. I hope you enjoy!

Now onto the food..

I have to admit, my eats have not been the most exciting lately. I’ve been loving big salads and roasted veggies and there are really only so many times I can show the same old stuff. So today I wanted to share another new twist on my protein oats and a couple other favorites that I’ve enjoyed recently.

Zucchini Bread Protein TVP Oats

I decided to explore a few breakfast options [only a little] and tried Zoats. I really enjoyed them but wanted to give them my own little twist and I’ve been devouring ever since! And obviously zucchini is not in short supply right now, so this is the perfect recipe to use some up!

Zucchini Bread Protein TVP Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients
– 1/2 cup almond milk
– 1/2 banana; mashed
– 4 egg whites
– 1 small zucchini; shredded and squeezed dry
– 1/8 cup rolled oats
– 1/8 cup TVP* [If you don’t have TVP, just substitute another 1/8 cup of oats]
– Cinnamon
– Nutmeg
– Your fave nut and/or seed butters [Optional.. but why wouldn’t you?!]
– Your fave granola [Optional.. see note above]

Directions
In a small pot, bring almond milk to a boil with mashed banana and a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Turn the heat down to medium high, add in your egg whites and mix continuously so the egg whites don’t poach. After the egg whites are partially cooked, add in the zucchini [make sure you squeezed as much of the moisture out as possible!] and mix to combine.

Let the zucchini and egg mixture cook for a few minutes, then add in the oats and TVP. Continue cooking and stirring occasionally until the oats reach your desired consistency. Once cooked, top with 1 tbsp nut or seed butter, a sprinkling of cinnamon, and your favorite granola for crunch!

I’m sure you’ve heard Chobani’s recent news and after having to toss a few of my beloved flips*, I’ve decided to take a little break and branch out to other brands of Greek yogurt. I’ve discovered some new flavors from Oikos that are off the chains!Ā Yep. I went there. And I highly recommend you check them out.

I love that the lids say “with room for toppings” šŸ˜‰

*Chobani’s customer service is incredible. If you’ve had any issues with your yogurt, be sure to contact them and they will send you coupons for free cups!

Salad Topper

I finally found a store in my area that carries miso and was super psyched to start cooking with it. I’m in love with Kathy’s miso dressing and have made miso-dipped tofu multiple times!

Lunchbox Bunch Miso Dipped Tofu

The tofu is perfect to throw on top of salads or into a wrap. I can’t wait to try it with tempeh and other proteins!

Happy Saturday! Have you entered my Chobani giveaway yet? I mean really, who wouldn’t want a free case of Greek yogurt?!

I hope you had a great 4th of July and got to see some awesome fireworks. Nathan and I met up with some friends at Gordon Biersch for dinner and drinks by the water and were able to watch the fireworks from our seats at the restaurant. Yes, it may have been through some trees, but they are city trees so they’re little šŸ™‚

Gordon Biersch Cashew Chicken Salad

Cashew Chicken Salad

I had the day off yesterday so I took that time to sleep inĀ [all the way until 8:30!], get in an awesome workout, and run some very important errands.

Manicure Haircut About Faces Day Spa

I was way past due to get my nails done and for a haircut! Really, it was more of a chopping.. a little shorter than I expected and prefer, but I’ll get used to it. And it’ll grow. I think I’ll need to invest in some wider headbands though because there is no way I’m going to be able to put my hair back for workouts! Any recommendations are welcome šŸ™‚

And speaking of workouts, bootcamp this week was rough! Part of what I love about it is having the ability to scale the workouts to your own level. This week, two of the workouts concentrated on heavier weights and less reps and I really took advantage of that. My hands were red, my arms and legs were shaking, and it hurt so good. These are the workouts that give you real results [and I’m clearly proud of that.. #noshame].

Best Body Bootcamp Tina Reale

These are the workouts that helped me to get wedding ready and they’re also the workouts that keep me going back for more. The constant changes in routine and moves keep you and your muscles guessing. It also doesn’t hurt that I don’t have to think about what kind of workout I want to do each day! And I’m definitely appreciating my rest day today.

It’s so nice to still have a full weekend ahead of me. We got early and went to breakfast at one of our favorite spots right down the street, Spoons.

Spoons Cafe Federal Hill Baltimore Maryland MD Break-ing-fast Burrito

Break-ing-fast Burrito with egg whites, black bean chili, spinach, and salsa verde

We went there the day before the wedding for a little breakfast escape. It’s one of the only places where I don’t get eggs benedict for breakfast. Their homemade black bean chili has a nice kick that has just the right amount of spice. I totally converted Nathan too.. he got the same breakfast with added chorizo. Good thing we’re so different, right?

I’m sure we’ll be running around the rest of the day today and tomorrow morning we’ll be up early again to grab some fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers’ market. My fave! Enjoy your weekend!

I don’t typically go for the full-fat flavors, but sometimes it’s necessary. This is one of those times.
