I’ve been working on making healthy choices since last October (which I’m sure I’ll be talking more about in the future). Internally, I’m doing alright (all those doctor-type tests came out perfect), but I am still medically obese. And buff. Don’t forget the buff.
So I’ve worked out at the local YMCA with a really awesome personal trainer (name withheld so she doesn’t hurt me with more reps of the sumo squat and lateral side leg lift combo) for months. It’s been going great.
I need a healthy pick-me-up, though, when I’m sore and dragging first thing in the morning. Enter the five things I needed to have a great morning:
My five healthy things:
- Homemade Greek-style yogurt
- Kiwi fruit
- Walnut halves or pieces
- Honey (in moderation)
- Chia seeds
I don’t have any purported health benefits for you, I just have one great tasting, kick-butt recipe for yumminess.
I’ve been using my new Instant Pot (aff) a lot since I got it for Christmas, easing all my husband’s fears that it’d just sit on the counter. I found this recipe for making yogurt to be super easy and tasty. The powdered milk is definitely a necessity if you don’t want a runny mess. We let it drain a little longer and it comes out the consistency of sour cream (but with a yogurt taste).
