re-introducing the good stuff in my life...again

Friday, May 28, 2010

With school out I no longer have the excuse to say that I don't have the time to workout, because I have plenty of time, I have waaaay too much time on my hands it's ridic. But as of late I've put exercise in the back burner, when school was in session, it was understandable that education had to come first on my list. Thus, I was used to not making time to squeeze a work-out in and just lounge around, the guilt of not staying fit subsided. I need to re-introduce the habit of going to the gym, because my passion for it has dwindled down to the ground. Now, I would rather eat a burrito than lift weight. ooopph! not a good sign!

This morning I woke up extremely late, 12:30 p.m. I need to work on that (how embarrassing right?), I missed the most important part of the day, which was breakfast...

"breakfast? lunch? snack?..." maaaybe brunch....brunch it is!

By mixing in pizza in the form of an omelete, it's a win-win! (by the way have you seen Letters to Juliet? cute movie).

I've just been reminded by looking at this picture that I need to make it again, and you need to make it as well! It was mar-va-lous!

Well first of all, I need to explain how the process works, but I think you got it all figured out..I'll explain anyway.

+ Crack open 4-5 egg whites (I used four, but next time I'll opt for five for more protein staying power)
+ Add 1 Tbsn of water and whisk it (for fluffing purposes, don't be afraid)

Then you pour it over a pan and cook it both sides. Once you have flipped the omelete with the cooked/firm side facing up, then you add your ingredients.

+ Add tomato sauce (I used hunts which was infused with oregano and spices, def made a difference!)
You can add your own spices as well.

Then top off your pizza anyway you like. I used almond mozzarella cheese, green bell peppers, and beefless tips. Instead of almond cheese, you can choose from ricotta cheese, pepper jack cheese, vegan cheese, chedder...the list goes on. Same for veggies and meat!

yummmm, next time I am going to add chile flakes for heat.

Then I went to Costco and bought Broccoli and Spinach. I've been on a broccoli kick lately, I love it roasted. I also needed spinach for green monsters.

Later on, I wanted to go to the gym, but I took a nap instead. ahhh, see what I mean about putting workout last? and why did I need more sleep?! I already had ten hours. oh I am ashamed, baaad.

Anyway, in order to make up my lack of veggie intake for these pass couple of weeks (I haven't had mexican ood in three days! I think I beat that habit. Knock on wood!) I bought a sh*tload of fiberific greens.

This was the first time I bought a whole cabbage from the fresh produce aisle, it was definately more volumous for the price of .88 cents vs. buying it from the bag at $2.

I mixed approx 2 Tbsn of coconut oil with 4 packets of stevia and tons of cinnamon and drizzled it all over my cabbage. Then I folded in the mixture til everything was evenly coated.

Then off in the oven it went at 400 for 30 minutes, stirring halfway.

I was hoping I'd come out crispy, but it came out looking more sauteed. So next time, I would save the energy by stir-frying it on the stove for 5 minutes rather than waiting 30 minutes to get the same results.

My new obsession: roasted broccoli. Roasted at 400 for 30 minutes. I am in love.

I am also in love with this picture from California adventures.

"oh dearrrr, don't drop my camera, dear god, please don't drop my camera"

oh my, I look horrific.
Time to go to the gym, I hope.

What is your favorite veggie to roast? I find that if I am buying a new vegeatble that I've never tried before, the first thing I'd rather do is roast em' and it usually comes out great, except for eggplants which I need to work on.

Gosh I am embarassed that i always wake up too late for breakfast when work is not in session. I just quit my job and have a whole 10 days to do NOTHING before i go home to HK. I tell myself that now i have all this time to be active, but in reality i can already picture myself eating all day. Fingers crossed i'll make sure that doesn't happen all 10 days. hahahah

Favorite veggie to roast is a toughie because there are soooo many! Brussels sprouts would be one, and cauliflower! yum!!!
