Online purchase of the best rollaway bed

Most people seem to leverage the power of the Internet, whereby they are seeking out purchasing products which could normally be purchased in their nearby store. However, those decisions are primarily made due to the ease of purchasing from the Internet, as well as getting a whole lot of varieties from that same platform as well. Moreover, there are a lot of discounts which can normally be found in various websites over the Internet, so purchasing from such a place becomes an automatic choice for many.folding beds

However, before purchasing the best rollaway bed that you lay your eyes on, it is always important for you to check different online sources. Of course, due to the anonymity that the Internet provides, you might end up getting scammed if you go to a shady website that promotes a $ 200 rollaway bed for $ 20.

Case of the Mondays

Workout

I went to bed around 10 on Sunday and woke up bright and early. But I must have been dreaming when my alarm went off, because it took me a few seconds to recognize what the noise was. I hate when that happens!


I had my usual protein shake and went to the gym…I decided to do lower body today.

5 min warm-up on bike
Hamstring Curls
Seated Quads
Seated Leg Press
Wide Leg Deadlift (see pic below)
Planks
5 min stretching


My lunch time cardio was 25 minutes on the treadmill. I started at 3.5 at 6 incline, and ended at 3.7 at 10 incline.

Food

Sorry…I was extremely bad at taking pictures of my food today during work.

The morning snack was a Chobani Strawberry (man I’m getting hooked!) and half a Kashi Roasted Almond Bar crumbled in. Lunch was a couple pieces of my leftover “Pig on a Pie” from Smith & Jones. My afternoon snack was a Kellogg’s FiberPlus Bar & low fat string cheese. The bar was good! It was very similar to the Fiber One bars and had a good amount of chocolate.


Dinner time (then time for Heroes!)…I had some chicken breast I baked yesterday and some Eggplant Tomato Bake, which I adapted from Cooking Light. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. I’m really trying hard to eat more veggies, so I thought this would be a great way to cook them up. I’ve been really craving dessert lately, so I bought some Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares. I ate 1, which is just 50 calories, and it settles down my sweet tooth.

Kookoo for Cous Cous

I have so much whole wheat cous cous! I bought a huge container of it, it must have at least 30 servings worth. Here is a recipe I came up with using some things I had on hand in the house. With a little chicken, it made a great meal! It would definitely taste great with fish or shrimp too. Does anyone have any other great cous cous recipes they can share with me?? Id love to think of even more ways to use it.


TZ Cous Cous
1 cup uncooked whole wheat cous cous
1 tbsp EVOO
a zucchini, chopped
5 sun dried tomatoes, finely chopped
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
salt & pepper to taste
a few dashes Cayenne pepper (optional)
cup water
cup chicken stock


In a somewhat large pot, add EVOO and set to medium. Throw in the zucchini and sauté until edges start to turn light brown. Then add the whole can of tomatoes (do NOT drain), sun dried tomatoes, chicken stock, water, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil then remove from heat and stir in cous cous. Cover tightly and let sit for 5 minutes. Then fluff with a fork and serve! This recipe makes 4 servings.

Healthy French Toast

This past weekend I went to visit my family in Orlando, and I was in charge of cooking breakfast. I scoured the pantry and fridge and found lots of good stuff! I found bread, eggs, blueberries and orange juice…french toast it is!


French Toast with Blueberry Orange Sauce

French Toast
4 slices Bread (use your fav!)
3 Eggs
2/3 cup Skim Milk
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Blueberry Orange Sauce
2/3 cup Blueberries
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 cup Orange Juice
1/2 tbsp Butter
1 tsp cornstarch

Start the sauce first. Place blueberries, sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil then set to a simmer for 5 10 minutes (until sauce is deep purple-ish color).

While sauce is simmering, combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with butter spray. Soak each piece of bread for about 5 seconds on each side then place on the heated skillet. Cook until golden brown on each side, approximately 5 minutes total.

To finish the sauce, put on low heat and add the butter. Then, if you need to thicken it more, combine the cornstarch and 1 tsp of water and mix together. Then add to the sauce. Continue to stir until thickened, which takes 1 2 minutes (OPTIONAL: Add some freshly sliced bananas). Then Voilafresh French toast for two! I also had my French toast with some Turkey Sausage, it was delish!
