This morning I went to the gym for some strength training. I started with 10 minutes of the elliptical and 10 minutes of the stair master. Then, it was time for legs. I did a bunch of squats and dead lifts. After I left the gym, something was missing. BURPEES! I should have done some burpees. Dang.
Tuna Salad… my thing lately! When I make my tuna salad, I combine the tuna, all of my veggies, and some mayonnaise.
I took a shower, did some (unsuccessful) job searching and started an assignment about the Pentose Phosphate Pathway. I know, you’re jealous. I needed a break.
There are endless things that I love about healthy living blogs, or just blogs in general. I am amazed at the amount of new recipes I come across every day that I want to try. I’ve been dying to make Tina’s Paleo Morning Glory Muffins. With a few substitutions, I had them out of the oven in no time! I didn’t have any sweet potatoes, raisins, or walnuts so I subbed them out for pumpkin, dried cranberries and almonds.
Oh. My. Ganache. These are amazing. Thanks, Tina!
I absolutely loved the bread! It was so quick to put together, and has a really great flavor. Thanks, Courtney!
Caesar Salad and bread on my plate…
And my Italian Wedding Soup…
I’ve been making this soup since I’m in high school but it hasn’t made its way on the blog yet! It’s crowd pleasing, veggie packed, and a one pot wonder! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Italian Wedding Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups carrots, chopped
2 cups celery, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 and 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
32 ounces chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
16 ounces water
1 cup short-cut, whole wheat pasta
8 ounces fresh spinach
Directions: Preheat a large pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil, carrots, celery, onion and bay leaves. Saute for 10-15 minutes. In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well and form into mini meatballs. Add the chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Once the stock is boiling, drop the mini meatballs in. Reduce heat to medium-high. Add the pasta and cook for 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and add the spinach in. Gently incorporate the spinach until it is wilted. Serve immediately.
I’m off to watch the Giants v. Panthers game. I’m a Jets fan but I usually pull for any NY team. However, Cam Newton went to Auburn so I may have to stay neutral for this game!
