Marvelous is…my latest obsession:
Oat milk. Or rather the oat pulp leftover from making oat milk. I know some of you may be scratching your heads at this one so let me tell you the story….
Girl comes across oat milk recipe.
Girl makes oat milk and has an abundance of leftover oat pulp.
Girl hates throwing things out.
Girl decides to mix in some maple syrup, organic peanut butter, cinnamon, pinch of salt and a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
Girl falls in mad lurrrve and lives happily ever after.
All jokes aside, I can’t tell if I make Angela’s oat milk recipe for the milk itself or for the pulp leftover at the end. It tastes just like peanut butter overnight oats and that my friends, is never a bad thing.
I love the colour (shade?) grey and it matches with pretty much every piece of clothing I own. I took these for their first test run (literally!) on Saturday and they are super comfy and light yet also sturdy at the same time. I did the benchmark WOD “Eva” in them which is:
5 rounds for time
- 800m run
- 30 KB swings @ 35 lbs
- 30 push-ups
I find the 4.0s offer a lot more support than my Nano 2.0s and they are just a great versatile shoe.
The workout itself was not as tough as I expected, I paced myself the way I would for a 2.5 mile run and felt really good the whole time! I finished in 37:50.
Marvelous is…the Cody App. It’s an online training platform where you log your workouts and share them with other members, kind of like Instagram.
I usually write down my CrossFit workouts in a journal but this way seems a lot more interactive and fun! Plus it gives me a chance to log my non-CrossFit workouts like swimming and yoga. It lets you know how consistent you’ve been with your workouts and lets you create training plans to achieve your goals.
Marvelous are…my plantain protein brownies! Sweet, dense, fudgy, chocolaty—all the characteristics of a good brownie while boosting 8g of protein and 3g of fiber per serving. Did I mention they taste amazing? Can’t get enough.
Marvelous is…Monday! A new week, a new chance to be better than you were yesterday, live life to the fullest and be happy. And in case you need a little humor in your day, one of my favorite quotes:Gets me every time.
Have a great week :)
