1. I got this cute Valentine’s Day mug yesterday and it made me extra happy to drink my coffee this morning. My grandma got the same one and I hope she enjoys using it today as well.
2. I kept my smoothie small and simple this morning.
3/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 frozen banana
1/8 cup peanut flour
2 TB cocoa powder
1 TB chia seeds
I did this to make room for a slab of cornbread on the side. I made this recipe last night (the spiced version) and it is already over half gone. I am the only one eating it. This morning I heated up a piece and topped it with a heavy smear of peanut butter, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. This was the best breakfast I’ve had in quite some time.
3. I made apple sauce yesterday in my crock pot. It was so easy I have to share. I peeled, cored, and chopped 9 apples (I got an entire bag of apples off of the reduced produce shelf at the grocery store the other day for $1.50!).
I put them in the crock pot, sprinkled them with a little lemon juice, added pumpkin pie spice and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I set the crock pot to low and six hours later I had deliciously sweet and perfectly spiced applesauce.
4. Ok, there is a forth thing, sorry. I did an easy run this morning on Phillip and my legs felt quite a bit better. I threw in some 60 second pick-ups at race pace and while they didn’t feel great, it was much better than Tuesday’s attempt. I am hoping with one more rest day tomorrow I will be ready to rock on Saturday morning.
