Beef & Broccoli with Sesame-Peanut Sauce

2/25: Fitness & Eats from the Week

Hi, guys! Happy Saturday!

We had quite the eventful Friday night. We got a crazy rain and wind storm yesterday and ended up losing power for a few hours. We ate dinner via candlelight, which was kind of fun and reminded me of times as a kid when we lost power. Our dinners were kind of ridiculous – I ate tortilla chips, cheese, and pepperoni – but, hey, we made it work. The power came back on right before bedtime, so we were lucky.

Since power is still out in many parts around here, our CrossFit might not be able to open this morning, BUT that’s totally fine with us. Mal and I both re-committed to our workouts last week, so we’re reallllllly feeling it now. Even though we love a good Saturday “gym day,” we decided to let our bodies rest. Rest days are part of fitness, too! 🙂 That said, here’s a recap of my workouts from this week as well as some of my favorite meals and snacks. I hope you find them helpful to planning your own workouts and eats!

“The Zabar” from Rosa Farms: Smoked salmon, cream cheese, red onion, and tomato on gluten-free bread. So delicious!!

Overnight oats made with a banana-blueberry pouch, chia seeds, and almond milk.

I was obsessed with blue cheese crumbles last week and put them on everything!

I’m loving these individually-packaged haddock fillets from Whole Foods – just defrost and cook up in a pan with some ghee, veggies, and seasoning. Easy-peasy!

Quickie lunch: Haddock, peas (frozen), and fermented carrots with spicy mustard. So yummmmm!

Peanut Butter Frosted Rice Cakes! Recipe on CNC next week! 🙂

One-Pan Roasted Kielbasa and Veggies! Recipe on CNC tomorrow, just in time for Sunday meal prep! 🙂

What do you think of these fitness + eats posts? Should I keep them coming or are they just okay?
