Hump day for me! Yeah! I got some good sleep and was hungry for breakfast. I decided on pumpkin cream of wheat. I think my pumpkin stash might make it until fall.
This bowl contained whole grain Cream of Wheat, 1/2 cup pumpkin, cinnamon, 1.5 tsp of molasses, 2 egg whites, topped with crystallized ginger and toasted almonds.
This bowl actually only lasted me about 2-1/2 hours and I had half of a Luna Protein bar to tide me over to lunch.
Not sure I am that crazy about these?
Speaking of lunch:
Egg salad! I have been wanting this for a while, but keep forgetting to hard boil eggs.
So, the appetite seems strong today. I ended up eating the other half of the mid morning snack in the afternoon. Just before drinking this:
I added 7 grams of whey protein isolate to this to give me about 6 g extra of protein. Could not even taste it. Nice. Isolate is the whey way to go.
LOVE!!!! And let me tell you – when they warn you to order a size up for European sizes, do it. I got a large and if I had gotten a medium, I would have popped out the seams in front…..
I couldn’t wait until after dinner to go for a ride. I finally broke out the “noodles” for dinner:
The package said to rinse and parboil to reduce the “authentic aroma.” No joke. So why did I proceed to smell the freshly opened package?
Nas-tay. I rinsed copiously and added to a sautee pan with sweet potatoes, broccoli, chicken and some BBQ sauce.
Verdict? They are completely tasteless, which is fine, but the texture was rubbery. Not like pasta at all. Not really like anything I have ever eaten, except maybe those pink erasers when I was 5. So now I know.
John and I got geared up for a post dinner jaunt. Ready for a ride to yogurt 😀
Bright sun, it makes me look like Casper. These are my new bike shorts as well.
We rode 15 miles round trip and I was getting a lot of looks on the bike trail with this shirt. With my gold helmet and clip shoes – I don’t think I have ever felt this cool in my whole entire life. Note that I really am not cool, but who knew you could buy the feeling for about $75 and free shipping?? 😎
Stop for the treat:
Coconut yogurt topped with pineapple. Quite good, although this pineapple was pretty sweet.
I almost didn’t want to take my jersey off when I got home. I swear it made me faster today. Hope you all like it, because you’ll be seeing a lot of it this summer
