A (much better) sneak peek at Tulika's kickboxing class!

...And a mid-morning delicious, easy, hearty, and healthy (second) breakfast. Yes, I ate two breakfasts today. And lunch, and a snack, and dinner, and dessert.

Enough about my (ridiculously huge) appetite. I was really, really craving a pumpkin quinoa parfait that Alyssa showed me last week. Unfortunately, I don't have any canned pumpkin. So, I improvised a little, and made a much more elaborate parfait.

First, I mixed a small bowl of nonfat plain yogurt and half a scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder.


I decided to use some TJ's granola that I bought awhile ago and use only on rare occasions such as this.

Mmm...dried berries and whole grains!

The parfait layers:
  • yogurt concoction
  • granola
  • chia seeds
  • slightly thawed frozen peaches
  • homemade coconut butter
  • repeat.
Beautiful.

But it seemed incomplete. Ah, yes. It needed something to top it off.

Date syrup to the rescue!

Needless to say, that parfait was gone in ~3 minutes.

Moving on!

I had lovely, awesome Liana record the turbo section of my class once again. I was determined to get a much better quality video this time. Thanks to Nirantha who let me borrow her cam! This video should not cause headaches like the last one did...
