Good morning, blog friends! 😎
I had an excellent workout this morning: Body Pump (at home) + 15 minutes of push-ups and core work. I was exhausted by the end, but in a good way! 😀 I love starting my day with a tough workout like that! Feels so good!
Speaking of morning workouts, check out my newest Health post:
Morning workouts have been key to maintaining my weight loss for the past few years. I like to eat, so burning some extra calories allows me to splurge every day. Plus, exercising puts me in a good mood, especially once I have finished a workout and feel accomplished.
So, I’m not much of a bagel person. I like them, but for the amount of calories and lack of satiety, they’re not really “worth it” to me. However, the nice people at the French Meadow Bakery sent me some of their Hemp Bagels to try, so I knew I needed to give them a fair chance, especially since they are are made with all good things hemp.
The deliciously chewy Hemp Bagels contain a whopping 19 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber! And they are vegan, certified organic, and yeast-free. What a hotshot bagel!
Both the inside and outside of the bagel are packed with crunchy, nutty hempseed, flaxseed, pumpkin, and sesame seeds.
I toasted my Hemp Bagel and topped it with chunky peanut butter and banana slices. What a yummy combo!
I feel content after eating my breakfast, but I’ll let you guys know how my bagel holds me over until lunch. Let’s hope it’s different than the rest!
I was recently hired to write for the Examiners as their Boston Healthy Living Examiner. Check out my recent post: Tips for healthier fast food. I’ll be posting a few times a week, so be sure to check back often.
