Foodie Weekend

02/28/2011 at 11:34 am 47 comments

Good morning everyone! Hope it was a fab weekend and no one has a case of the Mondays. My weekend was a relaxing one, stayed in with the boyfriend and made lots of fro-yo 🙂

My IBS is good today but I was extremely bloated all weekend 😦 Thank you all for the kind words, this is just something that I have to take day by day and just live with. Hopefully my next Gastro appt will go better.

Now for some weekend eats!

No oats today 😮 Instead a massive bowl of cereal with cottage cheese, yogurt, fruits, cocoa almonds, and a spoonful of raisin cinnamon pb! I drizzled some Walden Farms caramel syrup on top. Delish 🙂

Since I was with the boyfriend all weekend the eats are always a bit more elaborate than the usual chicken and veggies I make for dinner.

For lunch we decided on making soup.

Chicken Squash Soup

Now you can’t have something salty without following up with dessert so we made fro-yo!

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt with some brownie chunks in the mix topped with chocolate syrup. This was really decadent and only 150 calories for the whole thing 😀

Well I’m off to the gym for my Monday weight training 🙂 Can’t wait to bench press and do leg presses

  • What’s your Monday workout routine?

    That Fro Yo looks amazing!! YUM!!

    • 2. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:33 pm

      It was delicious 🙂

  • 3. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  02/28/2011 at 1:34 pm

    That bowl of cereal is beautiful! I need to get my hands on a fro-yo maker. Actually, no. Because then I’d eat it 24/7 😉 Monday’s are my off days – so I don’t have a Monday workout routine!

    • 4. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:34 pm

      Omg yes buy an ice cream maker asap!

  • 5. Ellie  |  02/28/2011 at 2:01 pm

    Omgossshhh! that homemade froyo looks so cold and melty… 😛 I hope your gastro appt. goes well too.
    I never have a specific routine for working out; I just do whatever I feel like my body needs to work out that day–but cardio is always included in the form of HIIT.

    • 6. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:34 pm

      Thank girl, hope it goes well too 🙂

  • 7. This Italian Family  |  02/28/2011 at 2:08 pm

    Loooove froyo!! 🙂

  • 8. Casey  |  02/28/2011 at 2:43 pm

    Monday my workout is 6 hours of class and 2-3 hours of meeting. More of a brain workout, but my legs are usually a little sore from my Sunday run 😉
    That froyo looks mighty tasty!

    • 9. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:35 pm

      Wow so much school!

  • 10. glidingcalm  |  02/28/2011 at 2:48 pm

    Monday workout routine = nothing! haha! I walk a lot, and am trying to get more exercise into my life, but I try not to stress bout it!!

  • 11. Holly at Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices  |  02/28/2011 at 3:11 pm

    • 12. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:36 pm

    Homemade froyo is the best 🙂 I can’t wait to make some when it warms up outside!

    • 15. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:36 pm

      It’s really warm here already 🙂

  • 16. Tara  |  02/28/2011 at 5:52 pm

    Brownie bites + froyo = bliss!!! I’m glad you’re feeling better. I hope things continue to improve! Feeling like crap is no fun at all, it feels like it’s never going to end. But that’s why we have froyo to make it all better.

    • 17. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:36 pm

      Thanks girl, luckily today was good. And omg that froyo was insanely good!

  • 18. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  02/28/2011 at 6:24 pm

    Pmmmmgg, that fro-yo looks incredible!! Only 150 calories for the whole thing?! Was it store bought or homemade? Because that sounds too goodto be true. 😛

    • 19. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 6:37 pm

      Homemade! We used our ice cream maker and used Fage, splenda, and fat free evaporated milk.

  • 20. Sophia @ Raven Waves  |  02/28/2011 at 6:50 pm

    Usually I stick to cardio on Mondays. I’m about to get on the treadmill now 🙂

    • 21. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 7:25 pm

      Tomorrow is my cardio day 🙂

  • 26. katiivey  |  02/28/2011 at 7:39 pm

    Yum!! How did you make your frozen yogurt??

    • 27. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 10:06 pm

      We used an ice cream maker and threw in Fage greek yogurt with some skim milk or evaporated milk and splenda!

  • 28. leashieloo  |  02/28/2011 at 8:09 pm

    I don’t have a Monday workout routine per se, just whatever I feel needs to be done. For instance, tonight is cardio. I have been neglecting it lately!

  • 29. Laury @thefitnessdish  |  02/28/2011 at 8:29 pm

    Monday workouts used to always be chest and back…Today I did legs and a few sets of rows, trying to strengthen to scapula stabilizers more these days! And prevent the thighs from growing together any more while this baby grows 😉

    • 30. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 10:06 pm

      Girl please you have the best momma body!

  • 31. caitlinoco  |  02/28/2011 at 9:28 pm

    Score on that dessert! Monday’s are a short run for me 2.5-3 miles and full body weights

  • 32. Kat  |  02/28/2011 at 9:58 pm

    Mmmm it all looks incredible! My hubby likes your froyo bowl 🙂

    • 33. Jenny  |  02/28/2011 at 10:07 pm

      Haha thanks! 😀

  • 34. BrittFit  |  02/28/2011 at 10:26 pm

    DROOL******** love your breakfast!

  • 35. Shannon [Tropical Eats]  |  02/28/2011 at 10:42 pm

  • 36. Angie @ The Fitness Apple  |  02/28/2011 at 11:29 pm

    Check out my exercise link on my blog for some good interval workouts I do on mondays! they are killer!

  • 37. Stefanie @TheNewHealthy  |  03/01/2011 at 1:16 am

    I get excited to bench press too!! It’s been a few weeks though–I need to get my butt in the gym!! 🙂

  • 38. fashionfitnessfoodie  |  03/01/2011 at 7:18 am

    Did you make that fro-yo!? I need that recipe 🙂
    I usually don’t work out on Mondays but I pushed myself to get some cardio in.
    And to your response on my page about the pancakes – they are all less than 300 calories so thats good for a breakfast 😉

    • 39. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 8:06 am

      Made in an ice cream maker! I used Fage (17 oz container), about 1 cup of splenda, 6 T of fat free evaporated milk, and xanthum gum to make it thicker. I’ve used fat free milk and it comes out good too. Cocoa powder makes it extra yummy 🙂

  • 40. Kate  |  03/01/2011 at 7:57 am

    good luck with your doctors appointment. fingers crossed that you can get some answers.

    may i give you a march assignment? make some muffins!!!! you will not regret it 🙂

    • 41. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 8:03 am

      Love the assignment! Gotta get to it! 🙂

  • 42. paoang  |  03/01/2011 at 1:33 pm

    OMG I love your breakfast! I’ve never had cottage cheese mixed with yogurt and cereal.

    And I’m so glad you’re feeling better!!! My monday workouts usually consist of weight lifting!

    • 43. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 5:40 pm

      Cottage cheese with yogurt is my night time snack 🙂

  • 44. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  03/01/2011 at 3:41 pm

    Yum that fro yo looks so good!!! 😀

    Yesterday my Monday workout was a 30 minute run and 15 minutes on the bike. It felt amazing since I took the whole weekend off from exercise.

  • 45. Kelly  |  03/01/2011 at 4:11 pm

    Monday is my cross training day so I usually end up doing the elliptical. Have you thought about trying probiotics? Definitely consult your doctor first, but they have helped my stomach issues a lot.

    • 46. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 5:40 pm

      I’ve been on Align for like a month and it hasn’t helped 😦

  • 47. kissmybroccoli  |  03/02/2011 at 12:48 am

    Love your breakfast bowl! Lots of goodies in there!

    Ugh, I need to break out my new fro-yo maker like yesterday!
