Good Eats Old & New

Thank you for all the tips on soreness-- I stretched a lot yesterday and drank lots and lots of water and I'm feeling back to normal today. Whew! I powered through an arms and abs workout yesterday and we decided to do lots of drop sets to really fatigue the muscles. I love drop sets especially because they give you a great pump! 



I wish my arms looked like this all the time, but unfortunately they deflate after I leave the gym. One day though, they will really look like this ;) 

After our workout I had my shake and a slice of my banana bread which I haven't made in months, and I think I remember why... You cannot stop at just one slice! So good and absolutely perfect for post workout. 


Definitely going to be baking more often now, I've gotten away from it for some reason and I really miss it. Hopefully some new recipes will be concocted! 

I also had to share the dinner I made last night because it was a winner with B so that means it must have been great. It was actually really easy to make, just cooked up some lean chicken sausage that I got from Sprouts- it has no nitrates and I think is 90/10 which is pretty low for sausage. This probably isn't something I would eat multiples times a week, but definitely okay for a now and then meal. 


Anyway, I just added some mushrooms to the sausage when it was about halfway done cooking and then topped it off with my favorite Monte Bene pasta sauce. For B I used brown rice noodles and I put mine over some broccoli slaw (told you I was loving this lately). As you can see, a noodle or two may or may not have slipped into my bowl. Yay for carbs!

Do you make different versions of meals to accommodate everyone's tastes?

  1. I've been consuming a ton of broccoli slaw lately. I need to make up some more red sauce. And I'm with you - I wish my arms always looked like they do right after a good workout!

  2. The banana bread looks so good! I will definitely be making it soon. Can you provide the nutritional info?

  3. All the time! Even minor adjustments like putting cheese on his, or making spaghetti squash and pasta with a healthy sauce.

  4. Ohh, I have a ton of broccoli slaw I need to use and I am definitely going to try the banana bread soon. Summers of part-time work are great for experimenting in the kitchen.

  5. My husband is lactose intolerant and gluten intolerant too. So I make pasta substitutes and dairy for him a lot. Though I really don't have much dairy at all, but I still make some adjustments.

    Arms look great!!

  6. I finally found Monte Bene pasta sauce last night a place called Fresh Market in a town 45 minutes from me. I got the regular sauce and the low-fat vodka sauce to try out. Can't wait!
