Energy Foods

Mar 8, 2007Uncategorized

So, yeah, I’m working on the triathlon, getting in shape, trying to lose some weight. It’s been fun so far. I’ve got a group of folks trying the tri with me!!! Wow! If you’re interested, go here, or send me an email, and I’ll invite you to join our yahoo group.

Here’s something I posted to the group today. I realized you might like it too:


I wanted to share two breakfasts I’ve been eating that will help withenergy and also weight loss:

Yogurt Smoothie:
1 1/2 cups nonfat plain yogurt (buy the big tubs of this for cheaper)
1 Tbs. or less, honey
1 handfull of frozen mixed berries (I buy mine at Costco to save $)
1/2 banana

Throw in a blender and blend. It’s filling and yummy!

Ten Grain Hot Cereal

(You can find this in the hot cereal section or the organic sectionof your local grocery store. It looks like ground up grains andoffers ten different grains)

1 1/2 cups boiling water
pinch salt
1/2 cup 10 grain cereal
handful of craisins (I buy mine at Costco)
1-2 tsp. brown sugar
handful of chopped almonds

Boil water in lidded saucepan. Add cereal and stir. Turn to low,cover, and simmer for ten minutes. Once done, add craisins, sugar andalmonds.

If you have any recipes to share, please do!
