Trying something new

This morning I had the other 1/2 of my crunchy peanut butter clif bar before going for a 45 minute run.
When I got back, I showered and made myself something new... Ezekiel Cereal!
It's pretty energy dense... 200 calories for 1/2 cup, but very nutrient dense as well- 1 serving has 8 grams of (complete) protein and 6 grams of fiber! Woah!

I was going to experiment and just have 1/2 cup with 1/2 cup hemp and see how long it lasted, but I know I'm not eating lunch until later so I went with 3/4 cup cereal and 3/4 cup hemp mik (yep, still in love!) It had a very interesting taste... I liked it, I'm still not sure HOW much. Different than what I usually eat, maybe I'll try it with a bit of Agave Nectar (Jenna's suggestion) next time. I heated it up like grapenuts, and it was good that way... I'm very full now, let's see how well it holds me!
I also had a juicy, perfect nectarine. Yum!



I NEED to get some of these dishes done this morning... no way am I going to have time after work today! I'm also attempting to get the majority of my work for the weekend done now, so I have some free time to relax! Possible hockey game friday night, saturday morning run, groceries and dinner with the fam... possible baking excursion with my sister as well? Hopefully!

I highly recommend checking out the Enjoy Life brand of granolas - they're delicious without the addition of any other sweeteners!

Oh my, that nectarine looks amazing - it's SO exciting that more and more delicious produce is coming into season, finally!

Sounds like a great plan - work now, play later (over the weekend)!! :0)
