On March  26th, 2011 I will be a certified personal trainer! I am beyond excited. Here's to hoping that I didn't forget everything I learned in school, and that this course will pretty much just be a refresher.

Last night I told myself that I couldn't eat past 10 pm. I tend to nibble all night, so I think this is a good idea. Well right at 10:01 I couldn't stop dreaming about food, pancakes especially. So the second I woke up this morning I made some more protein pancakes. They were even MORE delicious this morning.

This time I put some blueberries in the batter, even though you can't see it.
For lunch I had some of the quinoa bean salad from a few days ago, on top of some spinach, with some goats feta crumbled on top. Glorious !

Now for the big news. I've been thinking about this for a long time, and throughout life, your morals, ethics and beliefs may change. And although I still feel strongly about animal rights issues, I have decided to start eating chicken. This is my own decision, and a decision that I feel good about. I know that my money being put towards free-run, antibiotic free, and humanely treated chickens does more for revolutionizing the chicken industry then abstaining from it completely. As much as it sucks to hear this, people will always eat chicken. So why not support those who raise them with care and compassion?

P.S. Chicken will not be a gateway drug for other animals. I know this 100%.

So here are some of the other things I've been eating over the past few days.

Some spectacular beets with green onions in a beet reduction. Yeah, that sounds like Ryans doing, not mine.

Spinach, shallot, and goat cheese stuffed organic chicken breast.

Goat feta, red pepper, and red onion stuffed organic chicken breast.

Chicken meatloaf, with oats instead of breadcrumbs. High protein and low carb. Yes!

This also had quite a bit of veggies stuffed in there. Made for a crumbly but more nutritious loaf.

Don't worry, this won't become an "Everything Chicken" blog. It will remain pretty close to what it was before. And I will try  harder to post my workouts on here. I'm currently following Muscle and Fitness Mags, Rock Hard Challenge.  It's pretty damn hard, but I'm loving the way it makes me feel. More on that later,  I have to get ready for work!

Bye! :)
