Have you had your Calcium Today?

Well yesterday was the last day of class and we got are final grades today. My nutrition professor recommended that I started taking a calcium supplement. Mostly because she felt my calcium intake was too low. I explained to her that I was lactose intolerant and I can’t have dairy. I guess she thought I was giving her some sort of excuse because the next thing I knew she hand me a piece of paper, and told me she wanted me to go and list five calcium rich foods. I wanted to say no but how do you say no to an R.D.? Well let’s just say I will be adding a couple of calcium rich foods to my diet starting today!

My list of Calcium Rich foods:
1. Dates
2. Dried Figs
3. Oranges
4. Kiwi
5. Kale
6. Broccoli
7. Spinach
8. Cabbage
9. Sweet potatoes
10. Shallots

I will be adding all of these calcium rich foods to my diet next week. The reason why I picked these ten are because they are easy for me to find at the grocery store, and they are also very affordable when you are on a budget. Easy and affordable you can’t beat that. My professor also talked to be about considering a path to becoming a R.D; she felt I had a passion for nutrition and I should pursue it as a career. I never thought about how much I have learned from the course I have taken; and how excited I felt from what I was learning. I put all I had in to my nutrition course so maybe I should consider a path in nutrition. I really don’t know if I should I don’t want to spend another year in community college when I should be starting my early childhood major next year. Well I could do both but school can be a drag sometimes.


Whip it up Breakfast

Well apparently someone ate the rest of my failed attempt at sugar free granola bars.. I know it wasn’t me I guess it was my other half.. Hmmm.. I guess they were not that bad just not food porn approved. Well I have nothing to eat for breakfast so I half to whip something up pretty quick and in a hurry. I loved this breakfast because it was yummy, low in calories, and very healthy. It only took five minutes and had limited ingredients.I am surprise what you could come up with in less than five minutes when you have no time and half to hurry up and go. What to do with broccoli, half an onion, chili pepper, and an egg. Hmm.. I think I will make a veggie breakfast taco!

Today work out was sprints I am really trying to get with the program on sprints. I went for about 17 minutes I am getting better. I may half to do some more research on sprints; they seem effective in getting my heart rate up. I guess I will continue to do them twice a week for four weeks and see if I get some great results.

Well my weights did not come yesterday hopefully they will be here when I get home. If not I am not going to be a happy camper it seems that I go way to excited I guess that’s what delayed their arrival.
