Y’all will not even believe what I did this morning … Started my day with a trip to the gym! It wasn’t a long visit – 25 minutes on the elliptical, level 6 random – but after my month+ hiatus it felt good to be back. Now I need to hurry to bed so there’s a possibility of me making it back to the gym tomorrow!
I didn’t have much time when I got home, but between showering and peeling the dog off of my boots I managed to make Adam and myself tasty smoothies.
The secret ingredient was MANGO.
I’ve been eyeing that can of sweetened mango pulp at Wegmans for months. I’d been resisting, but once I remembered that we had some frozen peaches to use up I finally bit. For two servings I blended –
- 1 cup mango pulp
- ~ 1 cup frozen peaches
- ~ 1 cup Stonyfield Plain Fat-free Yogurt
- ~ 1 Tbsp honey
They were delicious.
I wish breakfast had been a bit more filling though, because lunch was a long time coming. I had to get through three classes and a group meeting first. Since I decided to stay on campus until my shift at work I ended up having to buy food in the bookstore coffee shop.
I know that sandwich looks divine, but I sort of hated it. I ordered the (pre-made, then toasted) turkey with cheddar and chipotle mayo and regretted it every bite. There was way too much turkey, way too much cheese, and the cheese had a gross plastic texture.
I ate 2/3 of it, sadly. Normally, my rule is that I do not eat anything that I don’t a) love or b) need for nutrients; but I was stuck, starving, and not about to drop down more cash for something else.
I should have just gone home anyways because between tiredness and hunger I didn’t get a damn thing done. I actually curled up with my backpack and took a nap; shhhhh!
After a good shift at work, I came home to stir fry veggies for dinner.
No pasta or egg this time, just veggies, since my massive sandwich gave me a dose of carbs and protein.
The vegetables are always my favorite part anyways. (Have you tried my riceless stir-fried rice?)
What should I make with the rest of my mango pulp?
