I’ll never forget the time I took beginning Spanish in high school. I walked into my class all fresh and excited to learn with a binder that had the phrase, “OH-LA!” written in the biggest and brightest letters possible across the front. My Spanish teacher took one look at me and knew it was gonna be a long year.
Anyways. How was everyone’s Sunday?
Mine was a real gem. It started off strong with some apple sauce oatcakes!
These were super easy. I put 1.5 cups applesauce, 1 egg, 1 egg white, 1 1/4 cup oats, and cinnamon in a blender and blended it until it was smooth and creamy. Then I cooked each cake for about 3 to 4 minutes per side and topped them with a smear of crunchy peanut butter, honey and extra apple slices.
They were SO good 🙂 Don’t skimp on the cinnamon.
After digesting for about an hour and half, I headed out to run the Miles for Medicine 5K with my sorority sisters. The proceeds from the race went towards a medical mission trip to Nepal! Since two of my sorority sisters are going to Nepal and the race only cost $10, I was more than game!
We ran at a medium pace along the beautiful river path. I loved running in the cool weather with my friends and lots of other runners! Our strong finish called for popping the Gamma 🙂
After a shower and some laundry folding, I headed into the kitchen for a lunch of leftover kale salad, fresh brocoli with humus and spicy tomato spaghetti with shrimp. Yum!
Last night for dinner, I sautéed garlic, tomato and mushroom with salt, pepper, basil and crushed red pepper flakes. Then I added noodles, marinara sauce, pre cooked shrimp and parmesan. It was even better the second day!
Tonight will be filled with studying for my upcoming Personal Health and Well-being exam. Did you know that a non pregnant uterus weighs 60 to 100 grams and a pregnant uterus weighs nearly 2.2 pounds???????
Yeah. Me neither.
Have a good night everyone!!
