And The Winner Is…

Broc Guac!  Thanks to everyone who voted.  In honor of my creation now having an official name, I celebrated with breakfast.

Guac Broc Scramble

Broc Guac Scramble

My lovely plate consisted of sauteed 1/4 onion, 1/2 red bell pepper, mushrooms, and spinach mixed with scrambled eggs and topped with 2 big spoonfuls of Broc Guac.  Check out Kath’s version of Broc Guac here.  Sounds delicious!

For my second course, I had a serving of brown Basmati rice (best brown rice ever!) with some double nut butter action.

You want a bite, don't you? :)

What is the largest number of different nut butters that you have ever added to any one dish?  I think I had tri-nut butter oats once.  These days, in an attempt to cut down on grocery spending, I am only buying Trader Joe’s unsalted crunchy peanut butter (my favorite & the cheapest – less than $2!!!), and I’ve been making my own almond butter.  There have been NO online nut butter orders in our household for over 2 months.  Good job Heather!  No, but seriously, I’ve gotten really used to my plain peanut butter and homemade almond butter.  The thought of sweetened and salty jars doesn’t really appeal to me anymore.  Nothing like 100% nuts…although, I still really want to try PB & Co’s Mighty Maple.  Why don’t they sell it in Nashville?!?

Today’s yoga consisted of 60 minutes of Bikram Yoga at Hot Yoga Nashville.  I’d only done 2 Bikram classes before my Power Yoga workshop.  Our teacher told us that when we returned to Bikram, we would probably find it quite challenging after a month of only Power Yoga.  Well, since I hadn’t really done much of it to begin with, I was really surprised by my improvements.  My balance and flexibility is so much better.  That being said, the room was heated to 105 degrees, about 10 degrees hotter than for Power Yoga.  Talk about a sweat fest!  It was awesome.

Today marks the last day of dairy and soy-free month.  Check back tomorrow for a recap.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week thus far.  Are you breathing?
