Oh sorry I was dreaming of paradise. Back to reality…
That’s all I will say about that.
After completing my Insanity workout yesterday I replenished myself with a big cold smoothie.
In the mix:
- aloe vera juice
- almond milk
- Jay Robb chocolate egg white protein powder
Whew! That’s a lot of nutrients jam-packed into one smoothie.
I literally couldn’t keep my hands out of the fridge yesterday; my appetite was insane! I couldn’t even tell you everything I snacked on in between breakfast and lunch. By the time “lunch” actually rolled around I made myself a piece of toasted almond bread with peanut butter and a drizzle of honey.
And more snacks happened after that.
The crock pot came out last night. I wanted to use up a head of red cabbage I had in the fridge so I decided to make a crock pot version of my cabbage roll casserole. I used most of the same ingredients this time as I did before, but I also added zucchini and mushrooms this time around.
I added everything into the crock pot except for the mushrooms, gave it a stir, set it on low and let it go. I added the mushrooms in at the last 45 minutes of cook time.
It cooked for about 6-7 hours. I ladled a serving into my bowl and topped it with olives (do I seriously add olives to everything? It’s becoming apparent that I do). Sorry Kal–you can omit the olives. 🙂
This was a very nice way to spend my Thursday evening; eating a warm bowl of veggies and relaxing in my warm home.
Does anyone else think cabbage is a bit underrated? I understand the effects it can have on the digestive process but other than that, it’s some good stuff!
I am taking the day off from exercise today and letting my body rest. I am hoping to get a run in tomorrow, but based on the amount of snow we have, it may have to be a treadmill run. Booo…
Have a great day my friends!
I feel like cabbage is fairly underrated. Do you have any good cabbage recipes?
I really love Oriental Cabbage Salad with Ramen Noodles. Whenever it is at a get-together, I have to snag a bite!
