It has been snowing. the. entire. day. It looks beautiful and all but it makes it so much harder to get my lazy butt off the couch and do something. However, I was motivated enough to get my butt up off the couch and venture out into the cold to go to the mall! And, I think that every one had the exact same idea as we did because it was packed. I got 2 fabulous tops from Express and we went shopping for work clothes for Hans. Nothing is better than spending Saturday afternoon shopping 🙂 Back to breakfast! I was craving some major oats this morning due to the awkward snow in late March. I cooked my oats on the stove top, I can never revert back to the microwave. Stovetop oats > microwave oats, no doubt. I made 1/2 cup oats with 3/4 cup water, 1 small banana, less than a tsp of brown sugar and some cinnamon. At the end of the cooking process, I added a heavenly spoonful of Mighty Maple PB. This breakfast warmed me right up!
For lunch, I made a wrap using a Flat Out. I spread 1 tbsp of Almond Butter and loaded the wrap with spinach. The first time I tried this combo, it sounded disgusting. I always associated nut butters pairing with something sweet, like a banana, but the AB and spinach surprisingly tasted well together.
For dinner, we traveled to the Czech republic for a wonderful Eastern European dinner, ha I wish! Our friends cooked dinner for us tonight, and they’re roots are in Czeckia. They cooked Bierochs this evening, which I thought were originally from Germany but I guess they were previously eaten in Czeckia too. This is my first time to try Eastern European cuisine, and it was divine! In the past, this food was probably used as a cheap dinner, but it was delicious and perfect comfort food for a snowy day. The pastries were light and inside the “German hamburgers” were lean ground beef, onions and cabbage along with some spices. As you have probably noticed.. I am not a big meat eater, but if some one goes out of their way to cook a fabulous meal and they serve it with meat, I will eat it and I will enjoy it. My motto is and will always be everything in moderation. Also, when I travel, I always try the culture’s food because I don’t believe you are given the full experience without tasting what their cuisine is all about.
When we first arrived to the dinner, I snacked on some carrots:
To start, I had a small bowl of some amazing homemade potato soup:
Eastern European Buroch:
Tonight was a fun night filled with great food and fun company, what more could I ask for? 🙂
As far as the OSG’s BBBC (holy abbreviation!!), I did 2 sets of 12 lunges and 2 sets of 12 squats. My legs were a bit sore from yesterday’s ‘tone your thighs with yoga’ slide show that I found on Fit Sugar but I somehow managed. For my cardio, I power walked around the mall for 2 hours! Hey, it was exhausting.. definitely counts as a cardio workout!
I enjoyed the odd snow day in March but I am so happy that tomorrow’s forecast is sunny and 70 because we will be packing our car with all of our crap to leave on Monday morning and it would have been so much more of a hassle if it would have been cold and snowing, so I give a big thanks to the schizophrenic Oklahoma weather!
