I kicked off my morning with a bit of gym time (aka my excuse to read more of The Goldfinch . So good!!!). A quick climb on the stairmaster followed by a Serena Williams-inspired workout from Nike Training Club. One thing I love about NTC is that they “reward” you with new workouts when you reach certain milestones of minutes spent using the app — which means my workouts don’t get stale.
Speaking of new things, I recently got to try out Kiss Me Organics’s matcha green tea powder.You can read more about matcha green tea powder here and here, but basically it’s an amped-up, powdery version of normal green tea. So it’s got all the stuff of green tea x100.And, importantly, it doesn’t taste weird. In fact, it’s pretty good! A bit herby and sweet at the same time. I tried mixing 1 teaspoon of the green tea powder with low-fat milk (like Starbucks’s iced green tea latte), but I think this would be awesome in a banana- or apple-based smoothie (like this one!), too. Yum!
And yet another new amazing food creation: Chicken in a bag.My mom uses these awesome “baking bag mixes” to make super-moist and flavorful chicken. I feel like my baked chicken always comes out dry (poor me ) so this is a lifesaver.Moms always have these amazing secrets up their sleeves.
Have a great weekend!
