Strawberry Scones (makes 10 scones)
3 cups whole wheat flour = 1200 calories
3 tablespoons raw sugar = 135 calories
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold coconut oil = 720 calories
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries = 50 calories
1 cup + 2 tablespoons Almond Breeze almond coconut milk = 45 + 6 = 51 calories
1 tsp vanilla extract = 12 calories
Calorie Total: 2,168 (for 10 servings~ 217 per scone)
I couldn't really calculate this exactly, since I had to use more flour for spreading out the dough, and while mixing I wasn't paying attention and a whole bunch of flour kept coming out of the mixing bowl. So, I have no idea how much these are (plus it's hard to cut something into 10 equal servings!) - but 217 is a good estimation. These were SO GOOD- so spongy and filling.
Scrambled Eggs (found the recipe online, can't find the link right now)
some sprinkles of red onion
2 eggs, beaten = 140 calories
a handful of chopped tomatoes
a small scoop of feta cheese
salt & pepper
Calorie Total: Let's just ballpark and say 160. There were so little of the other ingredients in there, I'd be surprised if it made any difference whatsoever.
|Sunday's breakfast was delicious!|
1 corn tortilla = 90 calories
1 can low sodium black beans = 385 calories
2 can enchilada sauce (if making 10 enchiladas) = 225
Medium sweet potato 400g (ish- didn't weigh) ~ 360 calories
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (if using 10 enchiladas) = 140 calories
1/2 green pepper = 33/2= 16.5 calories
1 cup mushrooms = 15 calories
"Stuff" calorie total: 1141.5 / 10 enchiladas = 114 calories of “stuff”, plus 1 scoop (about a tbsp.) of salsa = 5 calories = 119 calories of "stuff".
For 1 enchilada using 1 corn tortilla, and guestimating on the "stuff", it came out to about 209 calories per enchilada.
Calorie Total: 209 calories
I had two enchiladas and it smelled so good that JW asked to try a bite, and then he ate a whole one! I was so proud of him, haha! He said that he wouldn't normally like all of those ingredients together (mushrooms, sweet potato, a corn tortilla..) but when put altogether and submerged in sauce, I guess he changed his mind! I had the remaining 2 yesterday afternoon, and added 1/4 of an avocado on top. YUM.
I had a voice lesson on Monday, and got there a little early, so I just ran around my teacher's neighborhood to kill time. I pushed my speed as much as I could without completely winding myself (which I figured would be bad right before a voice lesson) and was pretty pleased with the results.
SO impressed with negative splits!! I seriously didn't expect that to happen. I was really pushing it up those hills. So I guess I kind of did the opposite of a tempo run...? I'm just happy my pace is more around 9 min/mile than 9'30" or 10" like it used to be. To run fast, it's simple... run fast. :)
I'm really happy that I'm running so much lately, but every time I start running, the thought "This is so hard" inevitably goes through my mind. I guess I really need to work on my mental game, huh? I've read that your mind quits so much sooner than your body does - so I really need to keep that in check, and come up with some mantras to repeat whenever I feel like it's getting too hard. Any suggestions?
We think we've decided on a house...! Now to pack, maybe??
