Tuesday last week:
But it is still Summer and no one can take that away from me!! (I am really not a winter person, hey?)
So weekends= awesome sunshine= happy Steph! (It's the little things in life people!)
Choc protein creamy green ice cream and raw peanut butter granola
Usually when I return for a run (in desperate need of sustenance) I gravitate towards carbs. All the carbs. Oats, wholegrain crumpet, wholemeal spelt bread. Today something was different though. I thought of a big bowl of oats and didn't start drooling (very strange for me) instead I thought of avocados and nut butter and all things FAT! (The healthy kind of course ;)
Then I set about making my typical granola, took a bite and decided that I wouldn't bake it because it tasted so gosh darn good raw. I have these moments sometimes.
There's something about avocado that just makes everything so... creamy!
So craving the fat was a little strange (but listen to your body people- there must have been a reason! :) however as lunch time rolled around the usual carb-o-saurus in me came back with a vengeance:
I think it's so awesome that (for me at least) my body pretty much tells me what I feel like- be it carb rich foods, full-of-fat goodness, or a decent serve of protein (hello eggs and beans and lentils and everything else on one plate!) and I think it's awesome how good I feel afterward by listening to my body. Top job, body!!
What about you?
What sorts of foods do you crave after a workout?
Favourite source of fat? I love, love, love nut butter, but avocados are definitely up there!)
Favourite method of cooking sweet potato?
That's it from me today folks! Back to my typical Saturday happenings (you know that really means home work!). Hopefully you have something fun/ relaxing/ happiness-inducing happening on your weekend and if not just take an hour or so to do something you truly love! With that- goodbye!
