There were a few comments about not knowing what Zubaz are? Maybe it is a regional thing (MN thing?), I’m not sure. Here is a Zubaz advertisement:
Zubaz are athletic pants with crazy zebra stripes in odd colors. They were really popular 15-20 years ago? Everyone in my school had them and recently they’ve been popping up again. Honestly, Google Zubaz for more information. You won’t be disappointed!
I was really dragging all day Monday, I think lack of sleep and not working out on Sunday kind of slowed me down. Do you get that way when you skip a workout? Exercise gives me so much energy and when I take unplanned days off it kind of throws my whole week off. But Monday night I got my TurboFire workout in and holy cow do I feel better now! I did Fire 45 – which has 3 fire drills (HIIT drills) that really get my heart pumping. I felt great afterward.
Dinner was the always popular tilapia and green beans. I pan fried the tilapia with a little bit of butter, salt and pepper. But the green beans were the star of the show.
Remember these babies from Saturday?
Yep, I got these precious treasures from the Farmers Market and I couldn’t wait to roast them up with some garlic sea salt, pepper and canola oil. They turned out great.
Afterward, while I was packing my lunch (boring Minestrone soup w/extra kidney and black beans added and a small salad) I decided I needed something more. So I went through my Farmers Market produce again and pulled one of these guys out:
I figured my kale chips turned out well, so why not try zucchini chips? I found some recipes online, and combined a bunch of them.
Combine in a small bowl: ¼ cup crumbled bread crumbs ( I used a toasted piece of Ezekial bread), ¼ tsp seasoned salt, ¼ tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper. Put 2 tbsp almond milk (or milk of your choice) in another small bowl. Chop up your zucchini into thin slices.
Dip the zucchini into the milk and then into the bread crumb mixture:
Place chips on an oven safe wire rack (a basic cookie sheet might work fine too). Bake for 30 minutes at 425 degrees.
I also made some chips seasoned with only salt, pepper and rubbed with canola oil. Before the bake:
After the bake:
Delicious. The perfect addition to my lunch! This morning they shriveled up even more and were much more crunchy.Plans: Run 3 miles before work (done!) TurboFire HIIT workout after work Dinner: pizza? Look for Operation Beautiful at B&N! Laundry (ugh) Buy new work shoes – on Wed I’ll show you the sad shoes I’ve been wearing lately and (hopefully) some new ones. –
Question of the day: What is your favorite, easy meal to make for dunner? I love making chicken breasts/veggies or fish/roasted veggies. They are both quick and easy, and we eat that 2-3 times per week!
