Today was one of those days where I had a sweet tooth. So instead of reaching for a delicious chocolate bar from Norway that my cousin gave me. I made Isaac and myself an Acai bowl ( Brazilian berries). And to make it even more amazing I topped it with coconut flakes, strawberries, goji berries, and Cacao nibs (cacao nibs provide pure chocolate flavor and they’re a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber). This is a great way to settel a sweet tooth. Living healthy!!
I love the word Progress, Progress means: forward or onward movement to a destination. That destination is having a place where people can move and be transformed by healthy living.
As I shared in my last blog, Isaac and I are starting a gym. The construction is heavily underway. Much like our bodies are transformed by healthy eating and exercise, the building that will house our gym is being transformed too.
I would love to share our journey with you in the making of this gym.
The biggest battle in living healthy is doing it even when you’re stressed and busy. During the holidays, Ike and I had more crazy days than calm ones. After eating on the run too many days in a row, I couldn’t do it anymore (and neither could he. It means he has to work out more!) so I went food shopping while he ran out to get drum heads. (Ike is a drummer and songwriter.)
I found this Easy Hummus Spiral Wrap recipe from Lunchboxbunch.com, but knowing Ike, hummus and veggies wouldn’t be enough to fill him up. When you are cooking for a 6’7 guy with an active lifestyle, you have to make sure they’re getting enough protein to last. I’m always joking with Ike that he eats more than the Hobbits on their way to Mordor.
So, I added in sriracha sauce because Ike loves it, and a mushroom veggie burger. (Like Boca Burger or Amy’s) I made an easy salad of spinach and banana peppers. Ike doesn’t do dressing so it was dry, but you can also add a healthy vinaigrette for good fat. Avoid cream based dressings — they’re a no-no!
It was a simple, fun meal that also filled us up and gave us lasting, complex carbohydrates and non-animal based protein.
