I got my claws into the steamer and started prepping the other veggies, which included a whole bunch of arugula, one sliced avocado and the segments of two sweet, delicious oranges.
Everything was moving along fine until I started pulling the meat from the lobster claws. First, some of the claws were practically empty. As in, not one thing to pull out. How does that happen? Then some of the meat was gray. Gray lobster? No thanks. And finally, some of it seemed a little leathery. There was definitely not enough for two salads, and I really didn't want to eat it anyway.
So many claws, so little lobster! I guess that's what you get for $6. At this point it was already 7:30 and we were getting to the point of eating our arms off, so I had to turn to the freezer for a quick fix. Chik patties, you never fail me.
Not bad for a quick fix!
This morning I was really in the mood for an English muffin, so I went with it. I toasted up a light English muffin (love these, they're only 100 calories and they're still full of nooks and crannies) and topped one half with a little natural peanut butter, and the other half with some Polaner All Fruit apricot jam. On the side I had a strawberry yogurt smoothie.
The smoothie was super simple. I just combined a 6 oz. cup of plain Greek yogurt with 1 cup of chopped strawberries and a sprinkle of stevia. I also added a little water to get things moving in the blender. Love that pink color!
After breakfast digested, I got started on my workout. Today I went with a cardio circuit I pinned a few days ago. I did the circuit twice for a 45 minute workout. I liked this one; it got me nice and sweaty but went by quickly.
Time to get back to that work thang!
