Breaking the Fast a Little Later
Usually Fridays FLY by at the speed of light, but this one has been taking its time for a change. It’s only 3:00 pm, but seems like it’s around 5:00. Hey – I’m not complaining
I took an RPM class after training a client this morning, and it was fabulous! It was my first time spinning to the new release, so the change of songs and routines was very much welcomed.
By the time I got home and showered it was nearly 10:00, and I was more than ready for an XL breakfast – featuring Eggs in a [Pepper] Basket!
I can’t get over how cute/tasty/awesome it is to eat my eggs this way. All you do is heat up a griddle with a little oil, slice a pepper, and throw it on for a couple minutes. Then flip it, crack an egg inside, and fry for another couple minutes.
Then I just flipped it again to cook the top side of the egg just slightly. I ate two eggs in a basket alongside a bowlfull of berries and cream porridge:
These, however, were the star of the show:
I picked up these dried strawberries at the farmer’s market last weekend, and they taste SO good cooked in oats. They hydrate back up a little and are so plump and fruity!
Breakfast was pretty large, but I’ve been switching up my breakfast routine a little bit. Lately, when I wake up, I have water, then coffee. Then I’ll mix up some BCAA’s and drink them on the way to the gym and during my workout. So breakfast doesn’t happen until a good 3 or so hours after I’ve been awake. But when it does happen, I straight up feast. I know it’s not a popular breakfast routine in the world of healthy living blogs, but I’m digging it lately.
The rest of the day involved computer work from two different computers – blog upkeep as well as a little BIC work from home:
Oh hi, Ashley
It’s gorgeous here in central IL today, so when work was done for the day, Shane and I packed up Niko, grabbed a couple coffees, and headed out to the trail for a walk:
It was a nice break, and we had fun just strolling along enjoying the day
We intended on making it a longer walk, but regardless of the shining sun it was a little chilly. OK fine – I was being a wimp and my iced coffee wasn’t helping!
Going to get a little bit of cleaning in, and then Shane and I are headed to a happy hour for his team at work. Should be fun!
How soon after waking up do you eat breakfast?
