Thanks to a surprisingly warm morning, I rode my bike to the gym today.
5 minutes ride there + 10 minute elliptical + 30 minute treadmill + 14 minute long-way ride home = an hour work out that only felt like 40 minutes. That’s just the way I like it.
Juice that is the same color as my counter top is the way I like it too. Aren’t hidden pictures fun?
Zak made juice while I was at the gym and was waiting for me to return. I haven’t made juice in a few days and I guess he had to take matters into his own hands. Oh good! Make me some too while you’re at it!
When I asked him what went into it he said “The Usual”. Apparently that means romaine lettuce, carrots, beets, apple, lemon and ginger.
A real breakfast conundrum this morning: I don’t want oats but I wanted something warm. Fruit cereal sounds good but of course – it’s cold, not warm.
Hmmm… think, think, think…
How about warm fruit cereal? Why I think I just might!
A peeled, sliced gala apple simmer in unsweetened vanilla hemp milk for about 10 minutes to soften up.
After the apples were soft I added diced banana and cooked for about 3 or 4 more minutes.
Remove from heat, stirred in about a half cup of ground flax seed and poured the whole warm fruity glop into a bowl and topped it with a small handful of sliced almonds.
Warm fruit cereal? Fall breakfast of champions!
This is still a conundrum though because the point of fruit cereal is two fold:
1. It’s mostly raw (would be all raw but hemp milk isn’t raw)
2. It’s gluten free
So warm fruit cereal furiously scribbles out point number 1 like a toddler writing on your walls with a sharpie, but oh well. It was worth it.
