Second Group Cycle Class and Great Food Weekend

4 Comments

My weekend started with my second group cycle RPM class. Much better this time, my legs didn’t feel like jelly afterwards and I fueled properly this time. However, there were times during the class when all I could think, was when was it going to be over.

Group Cycle

After my RPM cycle class I stopped by Whole Foods to pick-up some fresh fruits and veggies. Some of my friends think I’m crazy because I love shopping for fruits and veggies.

Later Saturday afternoon I used my juicer, something I don’t do as often as I used to, I generally do smoothies. Lets face it, it’s easier to clean a blender than it is to clean a juicer.   I juiced carrots, apples, celery, cucumbers, kale and lemon to make this wonderful energizing drink.

Carrot juice is a good source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and various minerals due to the fact the carrots have been growing deep in the soil absorbing an array of minerals.  A good reason to buy organic.  I know there are some that strain their juice to get rid of the froth, but I love drinking all of the juice froth and all.

I saw this recipe for Vegan Pumpkin Spice Pancakes on one of my favorite food blogs, Minimalist Baker, and had to give them a try. What a great breakfast for Sunday morning, trust me, they were so good!

My daughter ask for homemade pasta, and it really is easy to make, so I made egg-less pasta for dinner Sunday.

Egg-less Pasta

1 1/2 cup semolina flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

a dash of sea salt

1 cup warm water

Mix all ingredients  when it comes together, transfer to floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.  Cover dough wit plastic wrap and allow to rest for about 10 minutes.  Roll dough until very thin, use pizza cutter to cut into tiny strips.  Bring Water to a boil, drop pasta in, stir.  When pasta comes to top of boiling water it’s ready to be removed using a strainer or colander, tossed with desired sauce and served.

I used prepared Alfredo sauce, pesto sauce and chopped tomatoes.

This is a variation of Mario Batali’s recipe found HERE.

So delicious, my daughter and I were fighting over who would get the last of it, I gave in and allowed her to have it.

Hi, I'm Celeste 'm a no flesh eating vegetarian who loves to run, cook and eat good wholesome food, living a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. In 2011 I became a vegetarian because I was experiencing digestive problems it seemed after every meal and I just didn't feel good. After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr I was convinced that eliminating all meat from my diet and adding more real foods was worth a try. Kris's book taught me so much about the power of whole fresh fruits and veggies, and their impact on our bodies. After a few months I started to feel the difference and I have never turned back. My hope is to share something that helps you on your journey to being Whole Body Healthy! Follow me on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

  1. I’m in awe over your egg-less pasta. Where do you find the semolina flour at? it looks delicious.

    Have a wonderful day, Celeste!

    • You maybe able to find the semolina flour at your grocery store, I got mine in the bulk section of a local grocery. I love being able to buy as much or as little as I need at a time. If you have a chane to try this let me know how it works for you.
      Thanks so much, and may your week be grand!
