I’m so sleepy already! It’s only 10:30pm, but I’ve been studying for my finals for what seems like an eternity. So. much. content. It’s ridiculous.
But anyways. Random tidbits:
Back to work! I’m probably completely alone when I say, I enjoy Mondays. They are a new start to the week, and you have a chance to catch up on weekend gossip with co-workers
It also helps that I really love what I do, so I woke up bright-eyed and ready to tackle the day this morning. Even woke up a bit earlier and made steel-cut oats on the stovetop! It actually took forev-ah! Almost made me late, but it was worth it! This morning’s version was just plain, with water and a splash of almond milk. I sometimes will add in frozen blueberries, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and walnuts… options are endless!
OK I’ve rambled on long enough. TIme to get this girl some sleep!
There’s a pretty popular sushi joint in Vancouver, known for the size of their rolls. Personally, I find their imitation crab pretty smelly. Two words: not fresh. The only item I find worthwhile is the avocado roll. It is loaded with avocados, and at $2.95 per roll, the amount of avocado and rice makes it a win in my book.
Today for lunch, my sister decided to pick up lunch for us: avocado roll and 3 piece of salmon sashimi= the perfect lunch. Afterwards, we were both craving a sweet treat, so I whipped up (literally) an easy “ice-kreme”.
2 Frozen bananas
Handful of Frozen blueberries
splash of water (help our old blender out!)
*my parents have a Vita-mix, but we are stuck with a 10-year old Breville haha! It starts smoking after like, 2 minutes of trying to blend anything
Speaking of my parents, my dad makes homemade almond milk and brings it for me each week! He uses this recipe I sent him here:
My dad never strains it. Sounds gross, but I love the pulp! Drinking a cup of this when I get up in the morning is such a nice way to start the day. It’s also a great “after-dance-got-home-at-midnight-and-want-something-before-bed” treat. Sometimes I will heat it in a double broiler and whip some matcha powder and cinnamon into it. Other times, a simple nuke in the microwave does the trick. mmm super creamy and delicious.
Surprise! It’s raining in Vancouver… Another dreary Saturday morning. Or I guess afternoon by now. This morning I did my usual morning routine (another post!) and an extra long yoga practice in celebration of the weekend.
Took a hip hop class last night, routine was OFF!! So much energy, classes like that remind me why I love dance so much. Song:
I’ve definitely noticed a change in my dance/energy when I started switching my eating habits.
Maybe I’ll do a “day of meals” post in the near future…
I’ve been looking into doing a yoga teacher training retreat in a far off destination! Going to attend an info session about it later today.
