The Return of the Shopaholic
Hey friends!! How’s everyone’s weekend going!?
I just returned from grocery shopping My favourite pass time
I love grocery shopping and usually *cough* always *cough* buy more than I went for Last year, when I lived in residence, I bought more than my teenie weenie bar fridge could hold. Lucky me, I don’t have to deal with that this year Having said that, I am glad I lived on residence for my first year in London Things wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t. I wouldn’t change a thing
I bought a ton of groceries, as you can see above. The entire elevator ride up to my apartment I was giving thanks for my Dad’s brilliant idea to purchase the granny grocery stroller It sure helps me out when I get carried away at Costco!
I am so pumped that I have an incredible packed fridge and freezer now It gives me more inspiration for new recipes
Not like I am running out of ideas though…
This morning I developed another new fall-time recipe Call me obsessed with the new season?
I can’t get enough of the fresh apples here Definitely not something I got back in Saskatchewan
Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Cakes
1 sweet potato (4 oz.), grated
1/2 apple, peeled, cored, and grated
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp egg whites
1 1/2 Tbsp soy flour
Mix all ingredients together
Take a 1/4 cup of mixture, press into measuring cup firmly, and drop onto heated skillet with olive oil
Flip the cake once golden on one side. Remove from heat once both sides are golden.
I served mine with a dollop of Greek yogurt on each cake and more cinnamon! (Along side 2 eggies!)
This breakfast fuelled my hammie & glutes workout that made me sweat!! I rarely sweat when working out. I usually only sweat during HIIT, but this was a killer leg workout inspired by Naomi Her workouts are intense I love them.
Hamstrings & Glutes
|Lying Hamstring Curls||3||8|
|Reverse Lunge w/ Barbell||3||12, 10, 8 (increasing weight)|
|Low Jacks||3||50 sec.|
|DB Step Ups||3||10 each leg|
|Hip Thrusters w/ Barbell||3||20|
|Bosu Leg Crunch w/ Medicine Ball||3||15 each leg|
|Straight Leg Deadlift||3||10|
|Plié Squats w/ DB||3||15|
|Russian Twists w/ Medicine Ball||3||20 each side|
I was feeling fantastic after this workout, but my legs were definitely like jelly I love that feeling I finished with 10 minutes of stretching.
Homework has been going great today. I have completed all of my readings for Nutritional Assessment, now I will move onto Clinical then Advance Food Science. My to do list is getting smaller and smaller But it won’t if I keep chatting …
Enjoy your evening!
