Raspberry Waffle Protein Mini-Breakfast

20130724_214013

In a mad dash out the door this morning on the way to my hair appointment, I threw together this delicious waffle raspberry combo! I was so thankful that I made extra protein waffles last week and froze them!

Having some extra pre-prepared meals on hand definitely comes in handy with a busy schedule. If it wasn’t for my excess of protein waffles, I would have only had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.

My metabolism is too high to survive off of a fruit smoothie for more then a couple hours, so this protein waffle was really a life saver!

Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks with melted mozzarella cheese!

What can I say, I’ve created the PERFECT appetizer!

This slightly spicy, low-cal dish is great for parties, lunches or just a quick snack on a summer day. I had a bunch of squashes and zucchini left over from our “southern party” last weekend, so I threw them together and created Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks!

To put a fun little spin on it, I sauteed the veggies in Balsamic Vinaigrette instead of oil and it came out GREAT.

Calorie count for Fruits and Veggies- what are you eating?

Besides being low in calories, fruits and vegetables are rich in different types of vitamins, fibre and antioxidants.

Instead of filling yourself with over-processed foods that only makes your body THINK it’s full, fill yourself with low-calorie fruits and vegetables. You can eat WAY more, and they will keep your body full much longer.

Think before you eat!

I’m joining a new gym today!! ZUMBA TIME!!

I’m SO head over heels excited, because a BRAND NEW GYM opened up minutes away from my house!

And you all know what that means… ZUMBA TIME!

Not to mention the fortune of money I’m going to save in gas by not going to the second closest gym (which is over 20 mins.)

I’m anxious to try out all the Zumba teachers at the gym, there are 4 of them I think. I’ve been doing Zumba for so long, I’m really picky about my teachers. 

If they don’t play the kind of music I like, I can’t get into it. I love reggaeton music, which is more of the hip-hop base side of Zumba.

I can’t even wait to start shakin’ my white girl hips to Pitbull, and flippin my blonde hair all over the place!

Do any of my fabulous followers Zumba out there???!

Once you begin your Fitspirational life, you’ll start to notice that there is Fitspiration EVERYWHERE you look!

I’m at the grocery store right now, buying all the fruit I need for the rest of this week’s morning fruit smoothies- and I spotted this clever shirt.

She must be a health blogger I thought 🙂

After I saw it, I just had to stop her and ask if I could snap a picture for my health blog. She was flattered, and even asked me for a link!

If you’re having a hard time finding Fitspiration, open your eyes- it’s all around you.
