Having an off-day

Returning to work and routine has a way of throwing me off completely. While my day was unexpectedly uneventful, I'm still feeling scattered and unfocused. I couldn't even manage holding inversions in yoga tonight due to a pounding headache. I did, however, manage to get my head to my toes--or is it my toes to my head?--in pigeon pose!
Didn't get a picture this time. Try to imagine this as a human being with an asymmetrical haircut. That's me.

And my mom dominated her split in hot yoga!
Best one yet! Go, mom!
Maybe the fact that I left my house looking like I stepped straight out of Ferris Bueller's Day Off was the problem.
The 80s called. They want their haircut and sunglasses back.
Just reliving my childhood, apparently.
I blame my parents. Hipster status, before it was even cool.
I even burned the deliciousness out of my kettlecorn. Luckily that was remedied by my addition of toppings. Someday I'll make the transition to air popped popcorn instead of chemically-laced microwave popcorn bags, but I'm an American and I like taking the easy way out.

Chocolate Protein Kettle Corn

  • One bag microwave popcorn
  • 1 T Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder of choice (I used a mix of Neocell belgian chocolate and Designer Whey chocolate sustained energy)
Prepare popcorn according to microwave instructions. Remove immediately and sprinkle the cocoa powder and protein powder into the bag while it's still hot. Close it up and shake vigorously to coat the popcorn with your toppings. Season with extra sea salt or stevia (I use NuNaturals Prebiotic granules for this) if desired. A sweet, salty, dark chocolate snack with a protein kick. This is a go-to late night snack of mine. It's so satisfying.

Try it and let me know how you like it!
