I Might Actually Turn Orange
It’s Hummmmp Day! And well into it now, too. One of these days there might be a chance I turn back into a morning person to be able to share my daily musings with you before lunch time.
For now, I am doing my best to handle my husband’s spontaneity and go with the flow of our ever changing NBA schedule. Thanks for sticking around through it all!
I know most of you are expecting a What I Ate Wednesday post today. Because it’s Wednesday, and I almost always participate in them.
Today, however, I’m taking a step back from highlighting my entire day of eating because it was a game day and filled with the same old things. Instead, I wanted to quickly feature two easy peasy meals I have been practically living on this week.
1. Pumpkin (in the) Protein Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter
Using my same regular pumpkin protein pancakes recipe, I spiced it up a little by adding a 1/2 cup canned pumpkin into the mix.
It turned everything orange, but became a great wet ingredient fix when I ran out of milk.
I topped it off with a generous few spoonfuls of pumpkin butter from our latest trip to Yates Cider Mill and it was pretty much a pumpkin lover’s dream.
(Note to self: take a stab at making pumpkin butter as soon as possible.)
2. Amy’s Veggie Burgers and Sweet Potatoes
This is the first week I’ve ever tried Amy’s Kitchen burgers, but I have loved everything from the Non-GMO brand so far. I have to say… I didn’t expect this Sonoma Veggie Burger to so “fluffy” and breakable.
I guess that’s what happens when you use all organic, whole food ingredients in things. I love the combination of vegetables, quinoa and walnuts and have had this burger with a side of cubed sweet potatoes three times this week!
I think it’s clear that I really need to make a trip to the grocery store, which I fully intend on doing along with a list of errands tomorrow.
It’s a super short post today, but I must get rolling. Routine reviewing, workout, and team practice awaits! Oh, and don’t forget a random last minute invite to the PINK concert tonight too. Scott’s spontaneity I tell you!
(I’m talking to you… second from the left.)
And since it’s been a while since I have included anything fitness related, here are a few of today’s fitness finds I thought you might enjoy as well.
