Today was a day of discovery. The first thing I discovered is that I do not like group fitness classes. A friend invited me to a body sculpting class that started with 30 minutes of abs and then a combination of cardio with weights. Don’t get me wrong the instructor was awesome (she was super in shape and kept running around to everyone making comments on how they were making up their own moves and how we need to burn that holiday candy off – that part was entertaining ). However it may have been that I only have been doing cardio for 2 days now or that I just hate being told what to do, I just do not enjoy fitness classes like I used to. Maybe one day I will change my mind, but for now i’ll stick with my own workouts.
Do you prefer to workout with a friend or solo?
The second thing I discovered was this:
Cheesecake Protein Bread
(Disclaimer: Sometimes my taste buds are a little wacky because of the “normal” food I eat, regardless this bread is delish!)
Makes 1 Loaf
2 C Oat Flour
1/2 C Vanilla Whey Protein Powder* + 1 Scoop Gold Standard Vanilla Creme Whey Protein*
5 T Flax Meal
1 t Mesquite Powder
1 T Salt
2 C Warm Water (110 degrees)
1/2 C Honey
1/4 C Olive Oil
1 Pkg Active Yeast
1. Wisk all the wet ingredients together and let sit in warm place 3 – 5 minutes while the yeast activates.
2. Add the dry ingredients and mix for 10 minutes (This is a batter bread, so the dough will be liquidish)
3. Pour in a greased bread pan, cover and let rise in a warm place for about an hour.
4. Bake 350 degrees 40-45 minutes.
*Can be made vegan if substituted whey protein for a plant-based vanilla protein.
