Thursday Motivation

Motivational Thought for Thursday: (From Fitmixer Bootcamp)

Motivation

Thursday morning I woke up craving some eggs.  I used to make them every morning but I took a little break… Back to it :)

BREAKFAST

I made my Egg and cheese flatbread sandwich with laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese… Oh How I love these little wedges.  I’ve missed them in my life!  Perfect combo of carbs and protein in the morning.

And some strawberries

Lunch came quickly when my stomach started rumbling…

LUNCH

Veggie salad + avocado-  with a pesto & basil pesto grapeseed oil vinaigrette and a tuna patty on the side with some ketchup.

Thursday after work I was going to go to crossfit… I only got one day in this week since they are closed Friday so they can set up for the Barbell Blitz.

When I saw the workout online, I was like whaaat is Med Ball Volleyball?

Since I love volleyball, I thought I wanted to go to the class but my friend said it wasnt that great of a workout….

So after dinner I did a mixture of a fitmixer bootcamp workout and my own thing at home :)  No equipment needed!

Cheezy Cauliflower Mash

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head cauliflower- You could use more if you want
  • 1/2 -1 tsbp minced garlic   (or garlic powder if you dont have minced)
  • salt and pepper
  • Garlic Grapeseed Oil  (If you dont have grapeseed oil, olive oil or coconut oil would work too)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 wedge- laughing cow cream cheese original

Directions:

  • Add pieces of cauliflower to food processor and blend until a rice consistency forms.
  • Heat a skillet on medium high heat;  add grapeseed oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and cauliflower to pan.  Saute for about 10 minutes until cauliflower softens
  • Transfer mixture to a bowl and add cheeses.
  • Serve warm!  Enjoy.

I absolutely love garlic and this totally hit the garlic spot!  I’ve also use this recipe in place of rice for stir fry- (minus the cheese)

    I’m insanely jealous of your strawberries. I haven’t found any good ones lately, but I’m definitely missing them. I can’t wait for summer fruit to come back!

    That cheesy cauliflower mash looks so good! I love “ricing” cauliflower and using it in place of rice, but the idea of serving it by itself as a side with the addition of cheese sounds phenomenal. I will definitely be giving that a try!

    Love the motivational thought! I just tried mashed cauliflower this week for the first time. I was surprised; I really liked it. My kids even liked it and asked for seconds! DH…didn’t like it so much. But he ate it.

    I used a potato masher instead of a food processor. For me it’s less bother and easier to clean.
