The Perfect Pair
Oh, Saturday How I love thee.
It’s been a great day so far Full of studying, but still great I love what I am learning, so it is so easy to grab my textbook and just indulge
Other than studying, my day has also included many “perfect pairs” as I like to call them
Saturday and Sleeping In
What!? This is unheard of. I never sleep in!
Well, never say never because today I slept until 8:00 am! Yikes! My body must have needed it though because normally my internal clock wakes me up at 6:00 am each and every morning! I usually never need to set an alarm.
Pancakes and Blueberries
Whenever I have blueberries I have to make pancakes Definitely one of the best combos around! These fuelled my morning workout and definitely satisfied my pancake craving!
December and Snow
I was greeted with this fluffy stuff when I woke up this morning I definitely did not mind not having snow, but a white Christmas is always nice I know Yorkton has snow, so my Christmas will be white (unless it all melts away before I get there!)
A Workout and a Protein Shake
I’m not much of a shake or smoothie person as I like eating my food as opposed to drinking it, but for my past two workouts I have made some pretty fantastic shakes Today’s had vanilla protein powder, strawberries, blueberries, almond milk, cottage cheese, and oats! It was so thick that I had to eat it with a spoon So I guess I did eat my meal after all
Sweet Potato and Almond Butter
I don’t think there is a better match than these two. I have been chilling my sweet potato and dunking it in almond butter lately.
To die for.
Brussel Sprouts and an Oven
Roasted brussel sprouts are amazing. I love when the little leaves get crispy I have had these two days in a row already. So good. I bet Emma, the queen of roasted veggies, would agree?
Tea and a Book
I have had my cup of tea at my side all day while studying Dietary and Nutritional Assessment material. It may not be your ideal “book”, but today I really had no choice. I am currently sipping at my “Mom’s Apple Pie” tea It’s a favourite!
A Burger and Fries
There’s no denying this perfect pair! My all time favourite turkey burger was accompanied by sweet potato fries and tasted divine.
Asian Turkey Burgers
1 cup extra lean ground turkey
1 TBSP fresh ginger, grated
2 TBSP soy sauce
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
Combine all ingredients together. Mix well. Form mixture into two burgers (this recipe will make two burgers). Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or until internal thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
I baked my fries along with the burgers. I tossed the raw sweet potato is olive oil, garlic powder, and curry. I baked them until crisp
What is another perfect pair that you can think of?
