Happy Monday. I hope everyone’s week is off to a good.

So, I haven’t really been blogging much about my exercise, and that’s because I haven’t been doing much. Sadly, due to some girly problems involving cysts on my ovaries, I haven’t been able to do any yoga for a couple of months. I don’t want to get into any details, and so please don’t ask me about it. Sorry, don’t mean to sound harsh, but it’s been a rough couple of months. I know I’ll be back on the mat someday, but I so miss my daily yoga. It kept me sane and balanced, and it was such great exercise. Walking has been good for me, and I really do believe it is enough. However, for me, I need some other forms of movement in my life, and I’m sad to think that I’m slowly losing all the flexibility and strength I gained over the last year. So, anyway, that’s why you don’t hear me talking about my yoga practice much these days. OK, pity party over. Just had to get that out there. How about some fun new eats?

Katie, my mustard muse, sent me her favorite mustard of all time since it’s nowhere to be found here in Nashville.

Have you tried Beaver Brand Sweet Hot Mustard? If not, find it! You were right Katie. It’s excellent. Thank you so much for sending me some! I used it in an egg salad served in a toasted pita made with 2 chopped hard boiled eggs, 2 TBSP Trader Joe’s smooth and creamy original hummus, and a big squirt of Beaver’s Sweet Hot. Mmm, perfect.

If you can’t find Beaver brand mustard in your area, I’ve added it to my HEAB Amazon store. Is it worth ordering online? Um, yes! However, it does contain soybean oil and wheat flour. So, people with food allergies, be sure and read the ingredient list.

Guess what I had for breakfast this morning? An honest to goodness milkshake…well sort of. It was a HEAB-style milkshake minus the “milk”. :)

Into the Vita-Mix went 1 scoop of Purely Decadent Chocolate Brownie Almond coconut milk ice-cream. Oh my gosh, have you tried this ice-cream? It reminds me of the Rocky Road of my youth. Love! Check out the chunks of almonds and brownies…

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah, my shake. In went the ice-cream, 2 cups of So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk beverage, 1 frozen banana, and 1 TBSP of light roast peanut flour (thanks Allie – loved that peanut punch!). When did we all start making smoothies in place of milkshakes? I dare ya to add a scoop of coconut milk ice-cream to your next blended beverage. 😉

Enjoy your day!
