In another life, maybe I should have been a chef. Let’s discuss.
At breakfast, I put together this bowl of oatmeal and cooked it in the microwave…about five seconds too long because a bit spilled out over the sides. But only a little- every great chef has a kitchen mishap or two. Topped with banana, raisins, and walnuts, it was a tasty treat.
For a snack, I pulled the microwave trick again and cooked an egg and put it atop a piece of toast and cheese.
I happened to enjoy it so much that I had another with my quinoa, chickpea, and veggie lunch.
I was raring for dinner after my workout and grilled a piece of cod in a buttery, garlic sauce and placed it on two corn tortillas with a drizzle of soyaki. On the side, some green beans and a giant caesar salad made with baby spinach leaves, a sprinkling of parmesan, caesar dressing, and crushed tostitos.
They may not look restaurant-worthy, but the dishes tasted great and I think that merits some points.
Speaking of my workout, it was upper body day, so I worked my biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, and back. For the bi’s, tri’s, and shoulders I did two exercises per muscle group. For the chest and back, I worked three exercises, all three sets of twelve reps. To top things off, I did three core exercises and ended with 20 minutes on the bike.
Happy December- it’s officially Christmas time! No matter that it’s in the sixties and I’m finding this “chilly.”
