Thanks, But No Thanks

Instead of my normal “Confession Thursday” post, I have some “Thank Yous “and “No Thank Yous” to share…

First, I would like to say “Thank you” to this amazing smoothie in a bowl that filled my ice cream craving today.

    ugh I’ve had weird hospital dreams too. Not a fan. Once I dreamt that I was frozen in a bath tub having my kidney removed. What the heck?

    Mmm your green smoothies always makes me hungry!!! :)

    Random question, are you still wearing/using the body bug? Haven’t read about it recently?

    • says

      Steph, It’s funny that you ask because I totally forgot to wear it yesterday and I felt weird without it. I have been wearing it consistently, but don’t check the calorie count every night – more like every few.

      More than anything I just want to know how many calories I’m burning because I really had no idea (I refuse to wear a HRM).

    pre-cooked brown rice is where it’s at! who has the time to cook that from scratch?! And Meb following you on twitter is baller.

    I feel your pain with the brown rice. It’s so yummy, so healthy yet it’s never ready when the rest of the meal is. How about cooking up a big batch of brown rice then freezing it into portion sizes?
    I did the same thing with steel cut oatmeal, which also takes forever to cook. Added raisins and real maple syrup.

    I know someone mentioned pre-cooked brown rice but careful if you try it because it’s packed with sodium (although maybe you wouldn’t mind. :) ) I use Minute Rice brown rice and it takes about 10 minutes!! Do it.
