Today started off with a nice dose of SNOW. Come on, Calgary. It’s May 5th! Although I love this city, sometimes the weather can be a little wearing. I’m soooo ready for some consistent sunshine and double digit weather, that’s for sure.

- 1 cup coffee
- 1 scoop chocolate vegan protein
- 10 small ice cubes
- 1 small dash of almond milk
Blend and enjoy!
It was a gym morning. By the time I got all the snow off my car, I was running a little late for Spin class, which I’d been looking forward to all week. Of course, Miss Daisy pulled out in front of me and I had to follow her pretty much the entire way to the gym at a wild speed of 30 km/hr. Needless to say, by the time I arrived, every bike was taken! Sadness. So, it was off to the Stair Monster for a 40 minute interval session. At least the Real Housewives of Vancouver was on the tv so that I could take my mind off the torture session with some pretentious, plasticized, Canadian hilarity. Oh, fantastic- the Slice network was pure static reception. I guess my iPod play list would do… buuutt of course my iPhone battery was dead. Seeing as though I don’t read magazines while doing high intensity interval training (you probably shouldn’t if you want the best workout), it would be a non-entertained cardio session this morning. After busting it for 40, and completing a follow up strength training session, my grumpy mood had vanished and I felt much better! And that, my friends, is a recount of what would be highly considered as First World Problems 😉
(I did Day #3 of my April-June Resistance Training Plan- click here for all 3 days).
Ate my last Energy Bar and then I made this:
Broccoli & Tomato Frittata
- 1 cup egg whites
- 2 whole eggs
- 3/4 cups grape tomatoes (halved)
- 1/3 cup diced onion
- 2 1/2 cups broccoli (florets)
- 2 tbsp light parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (less if you don’t want the kick)
- 1/8 ground black pepper
- pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients together in mixing bowl, stir, and gradually pour into a baking dish that is approximately 1″ high. Anything too high will require a longer time to cook throughout.
Bake at 350º for 35 minutes!
Substitutions: If you don’t like broccoli, you could substitute it for diced peppers or sliced mushrooms (or even add them to the entire mix).
I spent the majority of the afternoon being lazy while the snow continued. I actually took my first daytime nap in a loooong time. For dinner, Adam, Logan, Margaret and I went for a nice little family dinner at the Ox & Angela in Calgary, a Spanish-style restaurant. It was delicious!
|My main: Ahi Tuna conserva w/ chives, crispy capers and tomato|
|Yes- it was THAT good!|
…and someone even got a leftover ribeye bone!
