Yogurt and yoga

I love yogurt. Especially Chobani. The cups just aren’t big enough! I used to go through phases with yogurt.. I’d be in the mood, buy a bunch, and then they would go bad in the fridge. I especially never liked chunky yogurt. Ever.

But then something happened when I moved into my own house. I started shopping totally for myself and decided one day that I was in one of those rare yogurty moods. I grabbed a Chobani Flip and couldn’t stop obsessing.

Now every time I go to the grocery store I buy handfuls of Chobani. Handful was an understatement.. I can’t usually carry the amount that I buy. Breakfast, snack, dessert… I really cant stop.

My go-to is coconut (I buy those in 4-packs), the flips are usually eaten before bed (I especially like the chocolate, almond, coconut one) and the banana, dark chocolate Indulgent, yeah those are gone in seconds.

I even cook with it! The other day I made kale and artichoke dip with Chobani’s plain greek yogurt. Oh so good.

Today I had one of the Limited Batch Apple Cinnamon. So yummy and festive. Pumpkin is delicious too. I hope that they come out with another Limited Batch for Christmas. Maybe something else to do with cinnamon.. or cranberry?

For the record this wasn’t a sponsored ad. I just love the stuff.

I also just realized that my yoga book made a cameo in that photo. Didn’t notice it at first. Ive been trying to slowly work myself into yoga. I love the idea of it and envy yogis for their strength and grace. I’ve never taken an actual class and Im wondering if thats why I don’t really feel like I can say, “I do yoga”.

But I have a pretty mat!

It fascinates me though. I follow yoga instructors on Instagram and my cousin is also an instructor and sent me the book in the photo a while back when I first told her I was interested. Too bad she lives in Wisconsin or I would have my own personal instructor.

There wasn’t much point to this post.. other than expressing my love for two somewhat random things. I think Im going to go do some sun salutations now… At least Im motivated today!

 

What I ate

 

 

Happy Hump Day. Congrats on getting over the mid-week hump. Only two more days until the weekend! Im still excited about it, even though I have to work Saturday. For some psychological reason I like the second half of the week better than the first.

In honor of the sunny day-off that I had, I wanted to take part in WIAW. I love reading everyone else’s WIAW posts, (read Brittany’s and Jenn’s – the girl who started it all) but never seem to have time to do one of my own. (I also don’t feel like a food blogger.) But today I had a nice planned grocery trip (which I never do) with a lovely list of yummies so that I can make my lunch for the rest of the week. Then I came home and made a fantastic lunch, and thought man I wanna show people what I ate today.

And so, here it is:

I started my day with banana pancakes and bacon, that I didn’t take a photo of.. I wasn’t thinking at that point. You can see my banana pancakes from a while back here though.

For lunch I made turkey wraps. I used Boar’s Head turkey and filled it with sliced cucumber, mango, sprouts, and chopped brussels sprouts. I spread a little bit of mayo on the turkey and drizzled a bit of Sriracha for spice. Arugula and tomatoes on the side with extra cucumber and oil and vinegar. It was really good. I also set out an organic Gala apple to have with lunch, but ended up being too full and snacking on it later.

I tend to drink more coffee when Im at work and everyone else is drinking it, but when Im home I generally only have two cups in the morning. Today I felt like an afternoon coffee.. and it hit the spot.

Dinner was simple. My dad’s friend gave him a huge ring of kilbasi recently, so he threw that on the grill while I made a brussels sprout salad with a hot vinegar and mustard dressing. I ate my kilbasi with spicy brown mustard made with beer. Definitely satisfying.

Today was a day to myself except that I got to spend the afternoon with my buddy Teddy. IMG_2558
