Workouts on Roku, Quinoa, & Dancing

roku workout

Do any of you have a Roku? We’ve had ours for quite awhile and just lately did I realize I should be using it for my workouts. You should have a YouTube channel on there and if not, just go to the channel store to download it—it’s free. From there, you have access to a ton of at-home workouts!

Yesterday I did some dances from the ClubFITz channel. I swear it felt like I had only worked out for maybe five minutes because it was so fun. I looked like a fool but didn’t care and that’s the great thing about at-home workouts :]

But check that out! Here are the videos I did:

1. Truffle Butter
2. Drop That Kitty
3. Throw Sum Mo
4. Partition
5. GDFR
6. Worth It
7. Bend Ova

Afterwards I cooled down, stretched, and foam rolled while watching an old Parks & Rec episode.

mexican quinoa

I’ve been having an old favorite for lunch. This Mexican quinoa recipe is really good. I add avocado, Cholulua, and eat it with tortilla chips. The Simply Balanced organic tortilla chips from Target is my new favorite. They are really good and come in a resealable bag.

It’s really rainy here today so we are trying to think of somewhere indoors to go and have fun. Have a great day!

What I Ate Wednesday

breakfast

Good morning! It’s hard for me to believe that it’s already time for another What I Ate Wednesday post. Days have been going by super fast over here. The weather has been really nice so we’ve been outdoors and on the go more than usual which has something to do with it.

This is actually what I ate on Monday and I started with two scrambled eggs on toast and sliced mango on the side. I topped the eggs with a bit of nutritional yeast after taking the photo.

trader joe's coffee - kcup

And there was definitely coffee. Have you all tried these Trader Joe K-cups? They’re $4.99 for 12 and really good! The nice thing about these is that the cups are fully recyclable, although they are individually wrapped so there is that waste to consider. I also wonder if they are safer since you are brewing through an actual filter rather than the usual k-cup plastic pod. I did a little searching but couldn’t find anything on safety.

While I was researching it, I kept reading that the Trader Joe’s cups are bad for clogging up the brewer. Just wanted to give that heads up even though I’ve had no problems, but I am going to start cleaning mine more often now.

salad

Lunch was a beautiful salad made up of field greens, kidney beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, and shredded carrots with Italian dressing. Next time I’m going to add some heated tempeh with a little bit of Bragg’s aminos. I used to put that in my salads all the time and it was so good!

spaghetti

Dinner was very simple. I bought Barilla’s protein plus spaghetti and Newman’s Own sauce.

I snacked throughout the day on a brownie in a mug (half the sugar and added chocolate chips), some more mango, an iced coffee, and grapes. I also had what was really a second lunch. It was a few Morningstar chick’n nuggets and baked fries (cut a potato into strips and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, then bake). I took a photo but it was not appetizing at all so I didn’t include it. Something about a bunch of beige food just wasn’t doing it for me visually haha

Have a great Wednesday!

Way Too Excited About Field Greens

greens from the chattanooga market

Check out those beautiful greens up there! We went to the Chattanooga Market on Sunday and got them for only $5! I put the avocado there for scale. It’s seriously an insane amount and we will be eating salads all week.

ensalada

Which is exactly what Waves and I had for lunch. She washed all the veggies while I chopped and shredded them. We used cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, red bell pepper, avocado, kidney beans, and sunflower seeds with Italian dressing. I was really surprised that she ate so much of the salad. I’ve noticed that when she helps prepare the meal she always eats way more.

Here’s some meals I’m planning on making this week:

– vegan lasagna from How It All Vegan!

curried chickpeas with spinach

vegan chili to be made into petros (A restaurant here in Tennessee – chili, corn chips, tomatoes, cheese, jalapeños, and sour cream – it’s super good!)

I’ve made the lasagna and curried chickpeas recipes before and they’re both fantastic. The lasagna is really great because you can make it the day of or before which is an awesome timesaver for busy nights.

……………………………………………………………………………

As for workouts, I’m going to start making a post on Sunday of all the workouts I’ve actually done that week rather than planning workouts on Monday. I always wake up and feel like doing something different or something gets in the way so this will be a better (and more motivating!) way to do things.

It’s pouring rain here, so today’s workout will definitely be at home. But first, it’s time to clean up a bit and start prepping for dinner. I hope that you all are having a great day :]
