Swiss Chard Wraps and a SHAKE!
Back to work today! At least it’s going to be 80 degrees and it’s only a 3 day week…not so bad! I was so tired when I woke up this morning (go figure, after so many days off) but I did manage to squeeze in a weights workout before I had to get ready. I mostly used Fitnessista’s Winter Shape Up week 3, adding a few more exercises. I fully plan on going for a walk after school since it will be so beautiful.
One of the things I have been wanting to try is swiss chard. I always see it in Whole Foods and it always looks so pretty, but for some reason I haven’t tried it. Finally 2 days ago since I was already spending a ton of money I decided to buy some. For dinner I decided I would make swiss chard wraps. I steamed some shrimp and the edamame mix from Trader Joe’s to be used in the wraps.
Swiss Chard Wraps
1 large swiss chard leaf cut into 3 pieces (with stem cut from bottom)
10 small shrimp
edamame mix from trader Joe’s (about 3/4 a cup)
1/2 zucchini spiralized
cut up carrots in long strips (3 or 4)
Put all of the stuffings into each one of the wraps. Add some soy sauce and enjoy for a healthy dinner!
sorry for blurriness, Danny took this quick before the camera died!
I also tried my first Chocolate Cherry Mix Shake. After seeing these all over the blog world, I had to try it. I am so glad I did…! For those of you who make these, this may be a silly question, but do you put protein powder in these? Do they keep you fuller for longer when you add that? I just made this for a snack, so I didn’t mind I was hungry for dinner when the time came.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup Trader Joe’s Very Cherry Frozen Fruit Mix
1 T cacao powder
splash vanilla extract
Put in cup and mix with immersion blender! Yum, this really is amazing! Next up is a green monster! I’m still nervous to try
I loved “chatting” on #fitblog last night! It was my first tweet chat (is that what they are called??) and I loved finding new blogs. I can’t wait to come home to tonight and read more of them. Have you participated in any tweet chats?
Okay, off to work..have a great day!
