Good morning! Happy Hump Day and Happy WIAW! Today I’m sharing my eats (from start to finish) from Superbowl Sunday! Thanks to Jenn for hosting this awesome link-up!
On Saturday I had whipped up a batch of Lindsay’s Quinoa Breakfast Bars. These are delicious, quite hearty and were perfect as a pre-workout snack.
My workout ended up being a sweaty one – my fav! I wanted to work my upper body and I wanted to do some low impact cardio, so I turned to one of my favorite Shoulders & Biceps workout (I used 8 and 10 lb weights), and interspersed each set with 10 minutes on the elliptical. So it went something like this…5 minute elliptical warm-up, shoulders & biceps, 10 minutes elliptical, shoulders & biceps, 10 minutes elliptical, shoulders & biceps, 10 minutes elliptical, shoulders & biceps and 5 minute elliptical cool-down.
After my workout I was starving, and I had some produce in the fridge to use up before it went bad, so I put together a breakfast sweet potato hash topped with a fried egg. In the mix…sweet potato, red onion, diced pimentos, pieces of Ezekiel bread toast and fresh parsley sauteed in Ghee. It turned out to be super tasty!
Same as my morning snack!
Justin and I weren’t hosting a Superbowl party this year and we weren’t attending one, but we didn’t want to miss out on the delicious food (although some of it wasn’t necessarily the traditional Superbowl eats), so here’s a look at what we had.
Of course we had to have something sweet, so we snacked on some donuts I had made earlier in the day. I bought a donut pan last week and luckily, it arrived in the mail on Saturday, so I was very excited to give it a try, seeing as I never made donuts before. They turned out pretty darn tasty for my first time! And in case you were wondering, I used THIS recipe.
I don’t love football, but I don’t hate it either, so I was present for most of the game – at least in the physical sense. ;-) I may have called my mom, went on my computer and fell asleep for the last half-hour of it, which may have not made Justin too happy, but hey…I tried!
