Sliver from an Onion?

by Sheri on August 10, 2010

This morning I woke up at 5:30 am and got in my weight workout.  I did my Fit Yummy Mummy circuit today. 

I tried a new workout from the series called Tri-sets.  You do three different exercises one after the other in a circuit and repeat 2-4 times.  There are two circuits of three different exercises.  I loved it and it sure did make me sweat!  Nothing like a good sweat to get your morning started.

I have been doing the Fit Yummy Mummy workout on and off now for about 2 years.  I originally started it about a year after J was born and it helped me tone up a lot.  Just running and walking was not cutting the mustard anymore!   I love the method of training outlined in her book.  It works really well for a busy Mom like myself. 

After my workout I gave my new post workout drink a try.

IMG_1256I have used Prograde products in the past and have really liked them.  So I ordered some more and I thought I would give this workout drink a try.  It was very good.  I liked the vanilla flavour and the best part is it was easy to mix.  I just gave it a good shake for a few seconds in my shaker.

Breakfast this morning was eggs again! Sorry..boring I know.  They looked the same as yesterday.  So I won’t bore you with another picture.

This morning after breakfast J had a speech appointment.  On our way home I stopped at the market to pick up a few things for my lunch.  While I was picking out an onion I managed to get a sliver from the skin!  Man did it hurt!  I had to wait until I got home to get it out.  That was a first getting a sliver from a vegetable!  My finger is still a bit sore where I removed the sliver from

For lunch I grilled up J a yummy grilled cheese on my Griddler and for myself a very tasty Panini!


In a fresh Multigrain Ciabatta Bun I layered sliced gruyere cheese, grilled yellow squash, spinach and smeared each side of the bun with whole made pesto I had in the freezer.

IMG_1262 It turned out fantastic.  The bread got crispy on the outside and the inside was gooey with the cheese and so flavourful.  Mmmmm… was so good! 

IMG_1264It was also very filling!  I was going to have some cherries as well but decided that the sandwich was enough.

The rest of my afternoon was quiet while J had his nap.  I worked a little on my computer, sipped some tea and did a bit of laundry.

Supper tonight was turkeylicous! 

IMG_1292 I took fresh ground turkey and seasoned it with cilantro, diced green onion, Dijon mustard, sea salt and cracked pepper.  I formed them into 5oz patties for the hubs to cook on the grill.

IMG_1290I then sautéed some mushrooms and onions in one pan and kale with garlic in another pan with EVOO.

IMG_1289 When it was ready I layered it all on the plate, sautéed kale, turkey burger, mushroom and onion mixture.  It was delicious and so very healthy.

Then a little bit after supper I introduced the hubs to the deliciousness that is Banana Soft Serve!!  I of course cannot take credit for this wonderful confection it is all Gena’s creation!


Tonight I blended frozen banana, frozen cherries, a few choc chips, splash of almond milk and a little bit of vanilla in the food processor.

While that was working it’s magic I made a little chocolate sauce.  I eyeballed it but I used coconut butter, coco powder and a little agave nectar to sweeten.  I love how it harden on the banana soft serve as a shell! 

Then I gave it a little cloud of whipped cream and a little more drizzle of the chocolate sauce.

IMG_1295This was the BOMB!  So very good…and I don’t feel guilty at all for eating it!  The hubs loved it too!  I need to freeze more bananas now..ha!

Well the hubs rented Date Night for us to watch tonight so I am off! :)
