today was open gym at cfec, i did a wod from earlier this week that i wasn't able to do because i chose to do a benchmark that day. today consisted of;
150 jump rope reps
21 kb swings 35#
i added one mile run and 1500 m row to my workout. it felt so great and am ready to conquer tomorrow's wod.
i also did my usual grocery store weekly shop and only had time to put all groceries away, make dinner, clean my kale and make a delicious dessert. here's the recipe for the dessert, Cocoa Powder Balls.
1.5 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup chunky almond butter
2 tbsp honey
3 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
place all ingredients in a bowl and mix all together. i used my hands, it was very sticky but i felt that all ingredients were mixed well. roll into small balls (ping pong size) and place on parchment paper and into the freezer for at least an hour. indulge. i made about 10 balls, the remaining went back into the freezer, i love the cold and the crunch to them.
beware these are scrumptious! thanks to james and allison for sharing their recipe.
i also spent saturday (Little Italy) and sunday (La Jolla) at 2 different farmers market, enjoying mexican fruit cups at both. i can't get enough of these and seek them out all over town. i love the spicy powder they sprinkle on top and finally bought some to make my own. i haven't made one at home yet but i bought cucumbers, mango, pineapple and cantaloupe to make some tomorrow. i'm sure toasted shredded coconut will make it's way on top of my fruit along with a dash of lime, you must try this.
as a side note lime and mint on fruit is amazing (recipe coming soon).
i found the spice at our local supermarket.
