Yay! I actually got in a little exercise yesterday! I walked on the treadmill, at an incline even, for 30 minutes! I got my heart rate up and burned a few calories. Then I did 30 minutes of various stretches, Yoga moves, crunches and push ups.
Note to self: Exercise makes you happy!
When I went to Scottsdale in November and stayed at the Omni Hotel, I had a really yummy Quinoa Burger for lunch one afternoon and I’ve been thinking about trying to make it since then!
I played a little in the kitchen last night and came up with a Sweet Potato, Quinoa Burger that I thought was really yummy, but it needs a little tweaking.
I’ll work on it and post the recipe when I think its worthy.
But, not too shabby for a first time go at it!
Omelet made with 1 egg, 3 egg whites
Gluten Free Toast with Strawberries
1 C. Almond Milk, 1 C. Frozen Blueberries, 1 Frozen Banana
5 drops Vanilla Sweetleaf Stevia

Leftover Aztec Chicken, Quinoa and Avocado Soup
from the Skinnytaste Cookbook
2 Quinoa Sweet Potato Burger’s with smashed avocado
