I just got home from the Maroon 5 concert! I saw in the comments from my earlier post that many of you are Adam Levine fans I therefore expect all of you to “swoon” here – especially you, VeggieGirl…
Needless to say, it was incredible. The music was great, the singing was great and I realized that I’ve really had a summer full of concerts! It’s been so much fun – argh, and in 1.5 weeks it will all be over. Let’s try not to think about that!
I’ll try this title out for size: Chococonutrasp Oats? Ha – I’m not even sure how to pronounce that one! But here are the ingredients:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 2 whole raspberries for garnish
- 1 tbsp. sweetened coconut
- 1 tbsp. flax
I combined the first four ingredients in the pot and cooked as normal on the stove. I stirred in the flax near the end, then added the coconut and raspberry garnish for the photo touch 😉 It was delicious!
The raspberries kept the oats perfectly sweet – there were little pieces in every bite!
These oats kept me fueled through an intense morning workout – 60 minutes on the elliptical and about 10 minutes of ab work. I just love leaving the gym feeling completely revitalized!
I stayed a little too long at the gym and didn’t have time to grab lunch before we needed to head out of the house. We stopped at Einstein Bros. and Bobby and I split a chipotle turkey sandwich on a challah roll.
The sandwich was actually pretty darn amazing. It came with shaved turkey, lettuce, tomato, roasted corn and black beans, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, plus jalapeño cream cheese.
I also skipped the chips and payed the extra buck for a fruit salad. It was pretty big and fresh with cantaloupe and honeydew melon, red grapes and pineapple.
As I was eating this, I was thinking about the article on cloning that I talked about in my last post. The article says that the cloning applies to “cattle, swine and goats,” but I was curious as to whether anyone has ever heard of it being applied to chicken or turkey. The latter makes up a much bigger part of my diet in terms of meat, so I was curious as to whether it’s possible – any thoughts?
We spent the rest of the day racing around, picking up my brother from school and rushing back home to get ready for the concert. Our family is eternally running late, so we were running out of time for dinner options. We decided to stop at Baja Fresh on the way. I got a “naked” burrito with shrimp.
HOLY MOUND O’ CHEESE! I forgot to ask them to take it off – I always find it amazing just how much unnecessary cheese ends up piled on salads when you don’t say anything. I ended up picking off about half of it. Besides the cheese, there was shrimp, lettuce, black beans and rice. It was topped with a chipotle sauce – very yummy.
My mom also got us an order of the chips and guacamole. The guac was SO GOOD! I definitely had 10, 15, 20 chips? Ha – I just couldn’t get enough of this guac!
Then it was off to the Maroon 5 concert, where we saw more of this:
And now I am super duper sleepy! I’m going to check up on my blogs and call it a night! Again, I’ll get to the comments by the end of this week Crazy, crazy week!
