After another intense session of bodyrock tv we did the Tear It Up workout yesterday morning! We are a couple of workout sessions behind due to taking some time off. We have done a few workouts since being back and already I am starting to feel stronger. Lori and I really enjoy these high intensity strength and cardio mixed workouts because it helps us feel strong, mentally and physically. To me it is amazing how by working out can really help with self-confidence. I think that is why I have always enjoyed working out… to help make me feel better
Lori and I plan on sharing more exactly what we do for our workouts again. We used to share more and realized we missed it because it helps keep us on track and see our progress
After the workout it was time for a simple protein shake. I usually just have a green smoothie after my workouts but today I was running a little late in my schedule so I whipped up this simple smoothie and had my green smoothie a little bit later. This post-workout shake was blueberries, SunWarrior Rice Protein powder, stevia, and spirulina. Slowly still getting used to the rice protein flavor… still a Vega girl at heart
Moving along to mid-afternoon snack…a new flavor we are working for our farmers market raw dessert…chocolate ginger pumpkin layered bar!
Lori here taste tasting (sweater she is wearing is from RawThreads – princess design). I think these bars are a winner!
But let back up a little bit. This kale amaranth salad didn’t start off like this… nope it started like this
Originally we were making a bowl of amaranth with lime and fresh mint mixed in with a new sauce of ours the B.L.S. Spread.
And this is what it came out like
Who would of thought making a wilted kale salad with cooked amaranth on top would be so gooooooood?
I truly loved this salad last night and the good news is I think my stomach did too! I did not notice any uncomfortable pains or gas from it I do plan on sharing what exactly the new sauce is and how we made this kale amaranth salad soon.
Time for me to go finish my green smoothie! We have a few more easy and delicious recipes coming your way like a super easy pumpkin butter!!
