Hey friends!! Let’s talk about something I have been eating a ridiculous abundance of in the past few days.
Cashew’s and cashew butter
Hello, I love you (this was full yesterday… oops)
The reason for my recent cashew addiction is unknown but I’m ok with it, aside from being delicious cashews are a nutrition powerhouse.
Are packed with soluble fiber and phyto-chemicals that help fight cancer
Are full of healthy fat to help lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol)
A handful of cashews daily can help prevent deficiencies of zinc, manganese, potassium, copper, iron and magnesium.(I expect I have an insane abundance of these things.)
They are filled with B vitamins and even some antioxidants!
Aside from cashews, my appetite has still not been 100% because of the cold though I am feeling a lot better, thank you for all the well wishes!
Vegetables have not been sounding that great but fruit has been so I’ve been loading up on that
Along with some waffles and breakfast cookie dough
Tonight some more real food was sounding good so I made Annie’s mac and cheese. I mixed half the box with spinach, broccoli, hot sauce and pepper.
Almonds and cashews of course! I had more, my hand is really small =)
I’ve still been working out but more lifting than cardio because of the cough. Today I ran a slow mile, did 15 minutes on the bike and lifted for 45 minutes. I hope to get a great bike interval workout in tomorrow but we’ll see.
I also got great exercise dancing last night because we didn’t have class today so I went out, woo hoo!! It was my friends birthday so we hung out in her room for a while before going to the party.
I’m actually ok with not running this week (though I do miss it) but I have to keep my legs fresh for something this weekend…. it’s a surprise!
What foods do you like when your sick? Cold things for a sore throat for sure
What’s your favorite nut/nut butter?
