Let's talk about food. I've been doing well counting calories and using fitday. It is still crazy to see that I'm deficient in Vitamin D and Calcium on a regular basis - I use supplements for these. My goal is under 1800 calories and it hasn't been that difficult but it's amazing to see that I was probably eating more like 2200-2500. I haven't been starving or denying myself but I have been a bit tired. We'll see how it goes.
I saw this link from HEAB's blog for Desi's millet porridge and I made it into Quinoa porridge for 3 this morning easily. First I followed Heather's directions to make Quinoa Flour then followed Desi's millet porridge recipe. Yum!!
1/2 cup ground quinoa
1 cups water
1 cups unsweetened almond milk (I used coconut)
splash of vanilla extract
maple syrup to taste
Follow Desi's directions - they are really good.
Boil the water and milk then slowly stir in the quinoa - stirring constantly. Continue to stir till it thickens then pour into the bowl and add toppings - I used a pureed squash cube and 1/2 T maple syrup, cinnamon and flaxseeds ground.
I also made this last night to go with dinner - coconut roti using ground quinoa. No pictures but check out the link!
Race pics. Niceeee.
