I’m feelin blue…

Actually that’s a total lie.

I’m feeling quite the opposite of blue… orange? I’m such a happy camper right now its not even funny, summer is great and I cant be more excited for school to start. πŸ™‚

But there has been major amounts of blue in my life lately.

Including this new workout top which I adore. Why yes I did take these pictures in the locker room at my gym.

Check out them guns… (psh cant wait till they look like hers!)

And check out my new Nike’s! Love them too! And I got them on sale even better. What is your favorite brand of running shoe? Why?

I wish I could have snapped a picture of someones face when they came in a saw me standing like that. Can you say awkward??

On the food front these days I have been eating lots of this oatmeal everyday for breakfast. I still find it incredible that I keep coming up with new things do to with it.

Blueberry Muffin Oats

1/3 cup oats

2/3 cup water (or more for a thinner consistency)

2 tbsp flax meal

1 tbsp wheat germ

1/3 cup frozen blueberries

1 tsp vanilla extract

1-2 tbsp shredded coconut flakes

Assembly

Heat water to a boil, in a bowl place all of your ingredients except your vanilla extract. Mix well. Add water once boiling, mix and then add your vanilla extract.

Enjoy!

I also added some sliced banana and a handful of almonds to mine, yum! I enjoyed it parfait style.

I’m really getting into the groove with eating clean and working out. I love love love how much energy I have, and how much more like my old self I feel. Tonight I have a Zumba class! I am taking every class that I can since I am getting certified this september, i want to make sure I have as much practice as possible.

Also Earth Mama’s birthday is coming up this friday, and I want to make her something really special. Im thinking a cake. Something chocolate. Can you share your best chocolatey cake recipes with me??

  1. Hi my Zumba pal! πŸ™‚ You crack me up, taking pictures of yourself in the gym bathroom! You’re so bold! πŸ™‚

    There is this fabulous Chocolate Cake recipe in “How it all Vegan!” by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer– oh girl, it is so great!!! Months ago, I posted about it on my blog. Here’s the link! Hope you try it! (Just put your favorite frosting recipe on top– I always make mine super chocolaty using lots of cocoa, and then EarthBalance, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.)

    (Actually, this cake is so yummy my husband wants to make it all the time, but I usually discourage it because, believe it or not, I’m trying to live healthy! I know if there’s dessert lying around I’m going to eat it. It’s sabotage! You know how that goes, right?)

  2. You’re so beautiful! πŸ™‚ My favorite running/workout shoes are Earth Vegan; they’d be great for you since you’re Earth Muffin!!! Best (athletic) shoes I’ve ever owned- I adore them.

    Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World chocolate cupcakes with their chocolate ganache recipe. TDF! I think I remember you said you don’t have the book, so email me if you want the recipe and I’ll type it up for you. πŸ™‚

  3. I love your gym photos. MUSCLES are gorgeous aren’t they!?

    My favorite brand of running shoes are under armour. Every since I have gotten those then I have less shin splints.

    Your blueberry oats look so good! I think I might have to make those soon. I just bought the quaker blueberry muffin instant oats. Have you tried those?

    That is so awesome that you are going to become a zumba instructor. Whit, Ash, and I want to become Turbo instructors!

  4. love that blue top! and you are absolutely gorgeous, as always πŸ™‚ i can’t believe i won’t get tired of oats, either!! seems like they’re always begging to be tried in different ways, huh?
    happy birthday to your mamma! can’t help with the choco cake though 😦 I know whatever you do make will be outstanding, though.

  5. You look strong and healthy and glowing! You’ll get your muscles where you wanna be. πŸ™‚

    I love the blueberry muffin oats! I made a similar overnight concoction today! Yum!

  6. Michael, you are looking absolutely radiant! Clean eating is definitely working for you. πŸ™‚ I just started clean eating too and I am definitely loving it.

  7. You look so happy and healthy! πŸ™‚ For the cake, I recently made the “lower fat deep chocolate bundt cake” from Veganomicon. I used whole wheat pastry flour and replaced all of the sugar with a stevia baking blend for my grandfather who is diabetic. I definitely would use sugar if it were just for me but the cake was still delicious. It uses coffee for the liquid.. yumm πŸ™‚ For a more traditional flavor I agree with the VCTOTW chocolate cupcake recipe, you can totally just make a cake (instead of cupcakes) with it.

  8. I love that shirt! It is so bright and happyy!!!! That blueberry oatmeal looks delicious – I’m more likely to eat cold oats in the summer time but I would definitely try these!!!

    I ❀ clean eating too – it makes me feel so much better!

  9. I love that you love your muscles! Too many girls shy away from them 😦 It’s sad! Your top is adorbz and I love my Nike’s too!

    That’s so cool that you’re becoming a Zumba instructor!

  10. That blue top is such a fabulous color- it’s happy blue!! And loving the STRENGTH girl!!

    Favorite chocolate cake recipe is called “Too Much Chocolate Cake”…it’s actually on my blog. It’s not vegan and 100% terrible for you, but it’s a birthday staple πŸ™‚

    Hope you’re having an AMAZING weekend girl!! xoxo

  11. Hey Michal!
    Been a while since I’ve been to your blog, and not because I don’t want to (to the contrary!) but because I just can’t load your blog. Compared to various other sites and blogs I go to, your blog takes a ridiculous amount of time to load. Right now I’m staying somewhere with slower internet, but your blog still takes Much more time to load that other sites and blogs, unforutnately…

  12. OMG!! How did you get those guns? No really, how do you get muscles? I need to get working on that, because I want some!! Do you have a workout list? You can do a whole post on what your newest workout routine is! πŸ˜€ Oh that would help a lot!!
