Homemade Carbo Loading

by HEAB on February 25, 2009

Justine, I hereby declare myself PR rep. for your protein crepes for I’ve grown to love them so. :)

Peanut butter ice-cream crepes

Peanut butter frozen yogurt crepes

This breakfast tasted absolutely sinful!  I topped my crepes with Smart Balance Light, peanut butter, maple syrup, and 2 big dollops of Sarah’s peanut butter frozen yogurt.  The stats: 487 calories, 14 grams of fat (26%), 22 grams of carbs (19%), and 63 grams of protein (54%).  For all of you seeking more protein in your diet, TRY THIS BREAKFAST.  It’s not your typical stack of flapjacks by any means, but slap some nut butter and maple syrup on top, and I promise you a plate of heaven!

Lunch today was inspired by the sweetness that is Marian.

Bring on the good fats!  I am full.

Bring on the good fats! Gosh, I'm full.

My bowl consisted of leftover roasted veggies, quinoa mixed with veganaise and pepper, and 1/4 avocado.  A useful tip for leftover avocados: place in Ziploc bag and freeze for future smoothies.  Ever tried an avocado banana coconut smoothie? Well, you should! Freezing both the avocado and banana turns any smoothie into a thick creamy glass of yumminess!

No blended bowl for lunch because I baked my first loaf of homemade bread ever!!!!!

This bread is perfect – so moist, yet very dense.  That one piece put me over the edge, and I didn’t know if I would ever be hungry again.  (Yeah, right…you better believe I was blending up some goodies about 5 hours later!)  After compiling various recipes from different blogs, I decided on using Alisa’s recipe since I had spelt flour on hand.  Also, there were two words from her recipe that made this bread irresistible: cheap and easy.  Perfect!  I am so excited about more bread making adventures (Hangry Pants, your recipes are up next!)  Who knew it was so easy, and baked bread smells 100 times better than steamed broccoli!  Thanks Alisa!

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments regarding my hair – I’m loving the pink.  So fun.  No cardio OR gum in the past 24 hours.  Definitely not a good day to have a fresh loaf of homemade bread in the house.  Not good at all! :)

Night night my lovies.
