Post-gym, I made myself a protein smoooooothie, using some of the frozen fruit I picked up yesterday.
It had a scoop of Sun Warrior vanilla protein powder, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, about 1.5 cups of rice milk, 2 big handfuls of spinach, and 1/2 of a frozen banana. Mm mm good.
After my smoothie and shower, it was time to get baking. I planned to make these cookies Thursday night, but after I ate dinner and watched 30 Rock, I was not motivated to get off the couch.
They're the same as the ones I made for my mom's birthday - peanut butter and chocolate chip.
I gave up chocolate for Lent, so I couldn't try out the cookies. However, there did end up being some batter left without chocolate chips in it (I wonder how that happened...) so I made 3 plain peanut butter cookies for myself, topped with a sprinkle of sea salt. I mean, I had to make sure they were edible, right?
This was all that was left of my 3 cookies by the time I got a picture. They're just so tempting right out of the oven! I finished that almost-eaten one and forced myself to save the last one for tomorrow.
The only reason it will actually still be there tomorrow is because I drove to my parents' house last minute for dinner with some family friends who I've known my whole life.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!
Do you like sweet + savory (like the peanut butter cookies + sea salt)? It is my absolute favorite flavor combination. And I'm pretty sure it has an addictive quality. Just saying.
Song of the day:
"Oh My God" by Ida Maria. I love the energy in this song - it's on my workout playlist right now and always give me a little extra surge of power.
