• How to Get In & Out of the Gym Fast

    February 26, 2013

    Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Murphy’s week didn’t start off great, but I assume it’s because of his involvement with PAMC.

    I’m happy to report though that Murphy is feeling a lot better today. He ate a delicious dog treat from Oahu this morning, so he’s been in a fabulous mood ever since.

    Wait until okay!

    Breakfast

    My morning started with a bowl of whipped plantain coconut yogurt—same as yesterday, but I used a banana instead of a plantain today. I like the consistency of the plantain better (it’s thicker), but a banana works too. A few of you asked for a recipe for this breakfast, and it’s really simple.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 plantain or large banana
    • 6 ounces Greek yogurt (plain or flavored – whatever you prefer)
    • 1/4 cup shredded coconut + more to sprinkle on top

    Directions: Combine all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) until smooth. Top with shredded coconut, nuts, or your other favorite toppings.

    It’s as easy as that and it’s a super filling breakfast. The combination of plantain + Greek yogurt + coconut is really satisfying.

    Lunch

    Lunch was a delicious recipe that I found in the March issue of FITNESS for salmon cakes. I was actually a little skeptical that they wouldn’t stay together, but they turned out great!

    I used 1/2 tablespoon of both Dijon mustard and buffalo sauce, nixed the onions (I didn’t have any on hand), and formed the mixture into four patties instead of six.

    I topped my salmon patties with avocado and had some Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower on the side. Delicious lunch!
