#RECIPEFRIDAY: Low Carb Sweet & Salty Zucchini Protein Bites!

Well...

I didn't think I'd go another 5 days without exercising but...

The Universe definitely intended that I rest a little while longer! (So, I chose to listen and rest some more!)

I totally thought I was doing way better on Wednesday  but...

My flu, now turned chest cold, has proven otherwise.

Did I mention how awesome my Teddy Bear has been while I've been sick?!

That said...

I've been staying true to my word in that...

I haven't been over-exerting my mental and physical self nor...

Have I been pushing myself to get to the gym either! (I totally would have before, not going to lie!)

If anything...

My priority has been to take care of my health first and foremost.

Then...

I will take things slow as I transition back into my routine. (So I don't flush this refresh down the toilet!)

Obviously...

It's what my body wants so I won't put up a fight(But let's face it, I'm so over being sick at this point!)

Oh my FUreakin' moly.
It seems like ages ago since my hair was blonde.

No doubt...

I've been asking a lot of my body lately so...

It's only fair that I take good care of the machine that keeps me going!

I mean...
I need to keep my balance.

Which brings me to my recipe...

Seeing that I haven't worked out at all this week...

I've been careFUl with how much energy I've been consuming. (Makes perfect sense to me! And surprisingly enough, my body feels a lot better with my revised 'diet' so to speak. Honestly, it's been another refresh of sorts and it happened in the most unintentional of ways!)

I've been loving my Salmon and Chicken Nori Wraps.
Recipe
And my...
Spicy, Cheesy Egg white Omelettes!

That said...

I came up with a new low carb recipe to satisfy my protein bites addiction! ;)


Honestly...

This new recipe takes absolutely no time to make (well, that's a lie but you know what I mean)...

And...

It's super tasty! (Well, I think it is since I've been making it on the regular!)

So friends...

Here's the recipe for my...

  5. Congrats to SuperFit. That's awesome. Just pinned this recipe. AND I sure hope your on the mends girlie. As for working out sick, it totally depends on how bad I feel or if it's in my chest. If I do exercise, it's usually far lower intensity level too.

  8. Perfect timing b/c I have some leftover zucchini that needs using! And yes, I always lay low when I'm sick. I've found that it just doesn't pay to push it in that situation--just makes it linger longer. Feel better!

  10. just shared this with one of my participants because I think it's hard to get in to the mindset of resting, but so important if that is what the body needs! You always share the best positive thoughts on pausing.
