Yummy Recipes and Killer Workouts!

Today I made these two recipes from blogilates.com.

Cream of Asparagus Soup and Roasted Chickpeas

I modified the soup by making it with vegetable stock and topping it with a bit of Parmesan cheese. It was DELICIOUS. However, I think next time I would make it with slightly less stock and more yogurt as it wasn’t very creamy.

Yum!

It is asparagus season, so this is a great time of year to make this! When I was in Switzerland, I had white asparagus with Hollandaise sauce…which believe it or not is an extreme delicacy there. This is a great way to have a low carb and low fat dinner with tons of protein! I bolused 15 carbs for a whole bowl! And it was extremely filling!

The roasted chickpeas were literally the best snack ever! I am going to buy at least 5 cans of chickpeas and make a huge batch. Nick and I ate the whole bowl of them in 10 min. I didn’t leave them in the oven long enough, so they weren’t crunchy enough. Next time I will leave them in for longer. I didn’t use any oil, except for on the pan that I cooked them in so that the chickpeas wouldn’t stick. They are a great snack substitute with barely any carbs and no fat, and I think they are way better than potato chips! (Plus you can eat a lot more of them!)

Today I did an INSANE 45 minutes ab workout. I am going to be so sore tomorrow! Then I did 15 minutes of thighs and 20 minutes of suicide running. I feel awesome! I also went shopping and picked out lots of dresses for graduation…I may post them as I need advice on which to actually wear.

I am having hesitation about doing the liquid juice diet. I decided to substitute lunch for a 30 carb beet, apple, carrot, spinach juice mix. I was super low with in 2 hours. I think that the juice makes my sugar spike and then drop so fast because of how it is absorbed. Therefore, I don’t know how I could only drink juice. I may bolus for half of what the juice is actually worth, or turn down my basals while I do it. I have an endocrinologist appointment on Monday, so I may ask for advice about that then.

Lastly, I just wanted to share with you guys the new Type 1 Disney character! Check this out, so cool!

I hope you are having an awesome Friday! 🙂
