I made some oaty chia pudding this morning…

I love the texture of chia seeds! I combined the following and let it set while I fed Adrienne – about 30 minutes.

  • 3 T chia seeds
  • ¼ cup ats
  • ½ cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 5 drops vanilla stevia

However, I was still hungry after this bowl, which I was secretly happy about because it gave me a chance to try the products that Love Grown had sent me last week!

I tried both the sweet cranberry pecan and the raisin almond crunch – and loved every bite. I’m big on clusters when it comes to granola – and this did not disappoint, big hearty bunches of oats/nuts/dried fruit. Plus, the granola is sweetened with agave (yay for sugar-free-july!) and is based in my city (yay Denver!). A win, win, win situation.


I used yesterday’s leftover pesto to make a sandwich. Turkey, pesto, feta cheese – deliciously smashed in the panini press.

Yum city. I dipped the carrots in some good ol’ sabra.

After lunch, I was so sleepy – I sat down on the couch and declared that I had zero energy. Meeker was home, and suggested that I might feel better with a thirty minute workout under my belt rather than a thirty minute nap. He also told me he’d be home for the next 45 minutes and would be happy to watch his baby girl.

Before either of us could renege, I headed to the gym for a quick HIIT workout and was back at home feeling refreshed (and awake) with time to spare.


ten minute shrimp and goat cheese quesadillas

I hadn’t had shrimp in a long, long time. Like, over a year. Sometimes shrimp skeeves me out a bit (as does all sea food I get in the very landlocked state of Colorado), but these quesadillas were fantastic. I used cilantro and pepper flavored tortillas, too…flavor city.

And now, I’m off to snack on more of that delicious granola.

What’s your favorite quick workout? I need a few more of these speedy nap-replacement-workouts in my arsenal.
