Missin' summer days

My summer was so wonderful! Sweden, the North Carolina Outer Banks,  and, of course, the beautiful Mt.  Hood. 

Now onto an autumn season full pumpkins, the aroma of rain drenched leaves, girls softball, and lots of birthdays! We'll have a few more sunny mornings and my kitty certainly will make sure to soak up the rays.

Breakfast of Egg Whites

My sister eats lots of egg whites, which I have to admit before I started reading her blog I thought this a bit weird. An egg just wasn't an egg without the yolk!
But since I have to watch my cholesterol I could only have a couple eggs each week which was a bummer.

Then one January when I visited her there in Southern California she fixed me one of her egg white omelets and we stopped by Trader Joes to pick up their egg white salad. Well, I was sold and now - many  mornings I fix myself an egg white sandwich right. Nothing fancy - a little Dash seasoning and a couple of sprinkles of Parmesan cheese added to 3 egg whites fried in a non-stick pan, the folded up in a warm slice of high fiber bread.
Then I'm off to the races...

At home workout videos

Just sitting around watching youtube videos when I realized I hadn't exercised last evening.  So I did a search for "easy workouts at home" and found this great channel.  I did one of the short workouts and found I might put this into my evening routine to help relive the stress of the day. Followed this with a quick shower and ended my busy day feeling relaxed.

Plant Based Protein Powders

I've started using a protein powder as an occasional meal substitute with Garden of Life being my favorite at this time. Here's an interesting video I found to express why I've chosen a Garden of Life product: I especially like this fellow's comparison based on scoop sizes.
