Oh Man. This vacation was wonderful.. fast… but wonderful.
But just like the title says, all great things must come to an end.
I think I also said that line after we polished off our wonderful plate(s) of Indian and then again after my final spoonful of froyo last night…what can I say, it is a great phrase.
While I am on the Froyo topic, it was a sad day yesterday. Our favorite Froyo place that we go to every Saturday night went out of business on Friday. Another sad moment was when we found out that they were giving out free Froyo on Friday and we missed it. Actually that is probably for the better. Free froyo is code for a massive bowl and massive stomach ache.
And because I promise I don’t eat Froyo and Indian every day…I will move on to today’s post Power Yoga breakfast. Oatmeal cooked stove top with Maca powder and almond milk and topped with pumpkin seeds, frozen berries, goji berries and shredded coconut flakes.
Power Yoga was rough today. I just did not feel fluid, flexible and focused. I am not sure if it was a result of all the overindulgence over vacation/holidays or because of the “Cindy” WOD yesterday. A whopping 140 push ups, 70 pull-ups, and 210 squats will not make any activity the following day easy.
As for the overindulgence, the nightly glass of wine with dinner will come to an end as soon as vacation is over. And that is not until tomorrow 😉 so tonight’s first crock pot chicken meal will certainly be accompanied by some Apothic Red.
This is also much-needed after sitting at Barnes and Noble for 6 hours doing work that has been procrastinated over vacation. And the Fajita Crockpot chicken was much-needed after two meals that looked like this…
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. What about two apples? Because this is pretty much what my day looked like (TWICE) since my oatmeal.
I need to elaborate more on this Fajita Crock pot Chicken because it was amazing, easy, AND the first time I used a crock pot. It was a big day for me.
Before I left to conquer my pile of work, I quickly chopped up 1 yellow pepper, 1 red pepper, 1 red onion, cilantro and 3 gloves of garlic. I poured 1 cup of Salsa in the crock pot (look at the labels on the salsas in your grocery story and find the one with the least amount of salt..I use Green Mountain), placed 3 chicken breasts on top of the salsa, added the veggies, and added a variety of fajita seasonings. (Chili power, onion powder, cumin, turmeric, red pepper flakes, Himalayan pink salt, black pepper) Then you just cover, set the crock pot to Slow Cook on low for 6-8 hours and take on your day!
Let me tell yah…it was fabulous not having to come home and cook dinner after a long day! Oh, and it was delicious. On top of a bed of brown rice..perfection.
As much as I love blogging, I want to embrace every last minute of this vacation so it is time to wrap this all up! Have a great Sunday!
