Tired Feet

by Heather on January 28, 2010

Hey guys!  I finally made it back!  This was a LONG day on my feet, and I’m not used to that anymore!  My feet are ready for some TLC, that’s for sure!

This morning I did another 3-minute cookie, but used the Amazing Grass instead of cocoa powder.  I thought I might go ahead and share the recipe for this on my blog, but I just want to make sure everyone knows the original recipe is from Tina!  She’s the one who came up with the original, and I just adjusted it for my own personal tastes!

Below are the ingredients I’ve been using in mine:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup egg whites
  • 1 packet Truvia
  • 1 packet Chocolate Amazing Grass
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1-2 Tbsp chocolate chips (these are 60% cocao)

Mix them all together in a bowl:

And microwave on high for 1 minute.  When I take mine out, I run the edge of a spoon or a knife around the edge, then invert onto a plate as shown:

The cookie should fall right out, and look something like this:

I would just recommend everyone at least pour water into the bowl immediately for easy cleanup!  Such a super simple and delicious breakfast; it keeps me full for hours!

On the way to the convention center I stopped at Starbucks for a cup of coffee:

And I got a cranberry almond Kind bar (potential snackage)

And some dehydrated apples.  SO GOOD!  I actually really enjoy apple chips more, but these were perfectly tart-sweet.  Mmmmmm :)

The snowsports show was a lot of fun…didn’t hurt that my company’s booth was the biggest, coolest one there!  I got to help some of my sales reps show the line and learn a lot more about the product for 2010…score!  I’m stoked about some of the really cute women’s stuff coming out as early as this summer :)

Now, the sad thing is that the only place I could get anything with veggies was the pizza place on the supreme pizza…how messed up is that?  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love me some greasy pizza, but after the past couple of days all I really wanted was something good and healthy.  I didn’t even think about eating the snacks I got at Starbucks (I know, I know…in my defense it had been about 6 hours since I’d gotten them and they were stuffed in a closet in my bag), so I got the pizza and ate it knowing tonight needed to be much healthier!

I left at 4:30 and high-tailed it to the store for dinner.  We decided to make fajita salad, so of course I needed an onion and a pepper!

Here’s a little somethin’ somethin’ about me:  I hate, detest, abhor green bell peppers.  Gross.  So I always get the red/orange/yellow ones instead.  I find they’re so much sweeter and flavorful (and not as earthy tasting) than the green ones.  For fail-proof fajita veggies, do this:

Cut the veggies in strips, put in a saucepan, and add 1-2 cups of water.  Turn heat to medium high, and boil veggies until there is no more water.  Add 1 Tbsp canola oil, and saute until color starts to develop on the veggies.  The water tenderizes them, and the oil adds the color without burning them!  Sooooooooo good, and so easy!

The chicken is tossed in chicken chili seasoning (you can get those pre-mixed spice packets at just about any grocery store) and sauteed it in a non-stick pan with a little water to get the spice mix evenly distributed.  The salsa and guacamole are both from Eat Wholly, and the rice is instant rice with a can of black beans, a cup of corn, and some diced red onion.  Basically I mixed it all together and shoved it in my mouth.

And then dessert was the rest of our Haagen Dazs 5 Vanilla Bean ice cream (about 1/4 cup each) with a sprinkle of chocolate chips on top:

This was such a crazy long and busy day!  I didn’t realize I would enjoy myself as much as I did, but my feet are dead and all I want to do is crash on the couch with my sweet husband and watch 30 Rock!  I might do a workout later tonight, but I think it might be better for me to have taken the day off and do a kick-ass workout on Saturday instead :)

Has anyone tried the 3-minute cookie yet?  What special mix-ins do you use?  Or, if you haven’t tried it, what would you add to yours? I’m loving the chocolate chips, and I think at some point I would like to try dried crack strawberries to them…easy, watery mouth!!!!
