I started my day off with a knee pain free Insanity workout that was full of sweat! Just what I had been craving 😉 It was so worth it to rest for a couple of days.
I then made a PB and J Smoothie for breakfast. Although I love my buckwheat bowls, I guess I can’t go a week without my smoothie bowl.
Yesterday’s Work Fashion
I didn’t have a chance to post what I wore yesterday although you may have seen it at my sister’s graduation.
Surprisingly, I have today and tomorrow off so I am looking forward to having two days to get anything accomplished that I want! I have already started on my laundry….we will see what is next on the list.
A New Ingredient
Have you ever heard of wheat berries? I hadn’t either until just recently.
Wheat berries are the bran, germ, and endosperm of the wheat minus the hull. This grain is high in protein with 6 grams per serving. It can be cooked as a breakfast cereal like oatmeal or buckwheat, sauteed with vegetables and protein as a main dish, prepared as a side dish, made into a pudding, or mixed into a salad.
I decided to mix them into a salad for a light dinner last night and as something Brian could throw into his lunchbox quickly.
