Fortunately for you, I am back with a vengeance! And so is my cooking!
I have a lot to say.
On Thanksgiving day, I went to a Zumba class. (Typical Tulika, blah blah blah). For the next 3 days, my obliques/abs/core was sore. Yesterday, I went to the same Zumba class. The soreness never really had a chance to go away.
The point I am trying to make here is that I think Zumba is on to something. So yesterday, on a whim, I decided that for my kickboxing class (today) I would change the warm up and make it "Zumba" style. I also thought I'd switch out my regular killer abs-on-a-mat workout and substitute it with a Zumba-esque abs workout. And that's not all. I thought I'd use some kind of Hindi/Bhangra/really hip and catchy Indian song for the abs portion.
I think my class enjoyed it. Plus it made the usual routine more interesting. Especially the part where I blasted Bhangra through the speakers at the rec.
Anyway, after teaching my class, I attended yet another Zumba class (I apparently didn't get enough of a work out with TurboKick), but halfway through the class I felt really exhausted. So I stuck around for a couple more songs and left after 40 minutes.
In summary: I came home and wanted to eat something ASAP.
By the way, it's kale week!!!
What's the easiest way to get full quickly? Eggs.
I made poached eggs and sauteed kale and placed them on slices of wheat toast.
Kale-- sauteed in olive oil and garlic and herb seasoning.
Sprinkled with a little salt and pepper on top.
The egg looks pretty artsy. Actually what happened was, I didn't use a slotted spoon when taking the poached egg out of the water. And the egg yolk broke while using a regular spoon. So I had to rescue some of the yolk and hence the artsy looking yolk on top.
I highly recommend using a slotted spoon. It's a lot easier.
