116th день


My Rustic "CocoCocoa"

I have three items of note today.

Numero Uno: I busted my keester to push myself into having my most intense work out in recent history. In the back of my mind, I was wondering if anyone at the gym knew CPR ... just in case.

The stats: 45 minute, 45 second treadmill work out. Incline: 3 - 3.5 (a new high). Speed: mostly 3.7. Distance: 2.84 miles. Warm up and cool down: the walk to the gym and back.

Numero Two-o: I made my very own LC friendly, all-natural, mostly organic chocolate bar. The basic ingredients are listed below. I'm happily surprised to report that it is pretty, pretty good (as Larry David might say).

Numero Three-o: I'm experimenting with a new "super food" mix. I really enjoy the Amazing Grass Chocolate Green Superfood. It tastes great and the ingredients are excellent. But I think I've found something even better. My concern was how it would taste. One look at the ingredients will give you a justification for my impending fright.

Well, I bit the bullet and tried it out. I bought a single serving packet and mixed it with a homemade coffee protein shake. The coffee taste was enough to sufficiently mask the "green" flavor of the mix.

I do believe I'll be switching over to this new product for at least a one month trial. Be on the look out for even more inexplicably odd behavior and shananigans. I look forward to proclaiming, "The ORAC-Energy Greens made me do it!"

You want it, you got it, Sadekat!

It's not much to look at but it's actually quite tasty (and healthy). :-)

You should package and sell CocoCocoa to the masses, or at least do a youtube video stepping through how to make it. It looks and sounds very good! You could start a food network style series like so many other chefs are doing these days (not all of them set foot in culinary school ya know, look at Rachel Ray). You could call your show the Wowee Zowee LC Kapowee show. :) Ok, not that silly.

Grats on the new highs with your workout too. You are so driven!
