In the past week I have tried a few things in yoga I wasn’t willing to dare before.
I have been trying out the Shake Weight. Yup, go ahead and laugh. I was able to snatch it from a co-worker who got it during our White Elephant work lunch. And I am trying it out for a future review for Go Fit Girl!’s Review Wednesday.
Sunday morning is my regular grocery store weekly shopping. On Sunday I bought ingredients for Weight Watchers Fresh Vegetable Soup. Everything that went into the recipe I have eaten before. Last year I did a green smoothie cleanse and tried many vegetables (especially green leafy ones), which I had never tried before.
After I picked up the produce I needed I wandered around looking for a new item to cook. I looked at endives, which looked like a weird yellowish cabbage or lettuce. Eh, maybe not.
Then I decided to go look at the squash. I grabbed an acorn squash. I think I have probably eaten acorn squash, but maybe not. But I definitely have never cooked it before. So I will be looking for a recipe later this week to try it out.
When I got home from the grocery Sunday morning I had time to chop and cook the Fresh Vegetable Soup before yoga. It made a huge pot.
My first bowl of it was for a late lunch Sunday afternoon. Because I am so into protein I decided to add some tofu to my serving bowl of soup. The next time I make the soup I may add a meat protein.
Later in the week I plan to take all the extra ingredients for the soup and make a stir fry with brown rice. So that is kinda new as well. I do eat stir fry and I have a frozen one I buy from Safeway. But I have never made one completely on my own.
What new things have you tried?
