I’ve been taking summer classes

Long time no write! I actually am taking some summer classes right now and it’s very demanding. I don’t have any time to write but I’ll post my progress pictures.  My 30th birthday was about a week ago and I’m happy with my results so far, but I’m not done yet!!

Breakfast today I’m having a light English muffin with egg, muenster cheese, and tomato. I paired that( like wine lol) with some of my favorite herbal coffee: Teeccino! I drink this stuff every morning!

Good morning!

Well I tried to upload my exercises from the last couple of days but, like I said in a previous post, I don’t have internet or good service where I live. I may have to go to the library to upload videos. 
Anyways, I started my morning off with some over medium eggs, a small home grown red potato, half of a portobello mushroom, chia seed pudding with cherries, and last but not least my “coffee”!


I found this “coffee” at Natural Grocers. I’m so happy to have found it because I have been drinking Cafix in the morning and I wanted to try something new. It doesn’t have any caffeine or acid in it, so it’s good for the tummy! I bought two bags.
You brew it just like regular coffee, which I love! It gives you the feel of making coffee at home like everyone else, except this coffee is not actual coffee, but it tastes like coffee to me. 

My morning!

Breakfast

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • One slice of goat cheese
  • Drizzle of sesame oil
  • Whole wheat English muffin
  • Half avocado
  • A medium banana

I started by heating up my sesame oil and while that was getting hot I sliced up my mushrooms. I added those in the pan, stirring to evenly coat the mushrooms. Now I only used a tiny bit of oil. Just enough to give that delicious sesame flavor. 

When my mushrooms are cooked I scoot them to the top of the pan. I then add in my two eggs and give them a good swirling in the pan. Why dirty another dish to mix them up in? 

While my eggs are cooking I put my English muffins in the toaster and cut my avocado in half. 

Once the eggs are cooked most of the way I go ahead and mix the mushrooms in and then break up my slice of goat cheese on top and mix that until it’s nice and melty. 

Get my English muffin out of the toaster and spread my avocado on each slice with a pinch of salt on top and tada!!!! Breakfast is served. 

Usually during the week when I wake up at 4am for work I just make two eggs and either a whole wheat English muffin or Thomas’ double protein oatmeal with cinnamon English muffin with peanut butter.  I’m not much for cinnamon but the taste is so light that it doesn’t bother me and it tastes great with peanut butter!

Chia and Flax seed pudding for breakfast, yes please!!

Good morning everyone!!!! Yes, I woke up around 10am, but oh well. For breakfast I ate chia and flax seed pudding made with vanilla soy milk and a handful of blackberries! The store had them on sale for $1.00 per package. So, yes i bought 4 packages! Yum. I love a good sale!

If you haven’t ever tried it, it’s delicious! You can make it many different ways!

What you need:

  • Resealable container
  • Soy milk/ Almond Milk/ some other kind of milk or yummy liquid
  • Chia seeds
  • Ground flax seeds
  • Fruit/ toppings/ unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix about a cup of your soy milk with about two tablespoons of your chia seeds and however much flax you want. The more chia you put in the thicker it will become. The less you put in, the soupier it will be. I like mine super thick!! Mine came in a pre-mixed bag so I just did two tablespoons. Mix for a few minutes or put the lid on and shake it for a few minutes. Put it into the refrigerator and check on it in about an hour and give it a good stir. If you don’t give it an additional stir, it will get stuck on the bottom. Once you see that it is thickened up, there’s no need to stir it anymore. Stick it in the refrigerator and in the morning add your fruit or whatever toppings you want and enjoy!!
