Papa Namaste’s Pasta

Mansana is my favorite dork in the whole wide world (besides myself) and we thought it would be funny to blog about the same thing and have the same title…I DID say we were dorks right? lol

Ayer my dad called me

“Hey you want to come over, I am throwing some steaks on the grill”.

“daddy I don’t eat meat anymore”.

“You are a cheap date” ((((chuckles)))))

Calls me back…”I have a great recipe for you! Throw some Spinach in the Blender with some Parmesan Cheese, Olive Oil, and Garlic. Mix it with some pasta and then enjoy!”

Hmmm This DOES sound good….as I was talking to my dad, I was chatting with Mansana on Aim and she also agreed that it sounded delish so we both made it for din din. Check out her version!

I got all my ingredients ready…



While the pasta boiled…I threw the items into the blender (with a little bit of water)

DSCN6130 (Yes, I use my Stove as counter…small NY apartment lol)


Mixed it all up…



And then tossed it with the Pasta and Sautéed Mushrooms.


This was soooo good! I totally recommend Papa Namaste’s Pasta =)


Eats and Workouts

My fridge was finally fixed ayer!!! It feels so good to have all my food back home, safe and sound


For Lunch I decided to try another product from Amy’s…Cheese Enchilada


I usually use my oven to make these frozen meals but since it was already 4PM and it took about an hour to cook, I decided to use my Microwave instead.

Seriously Amy, Can you do no wrong?! This was the SHIT! Look at that Ooey Gooey Cheese! I can’t wait to try


For Dessert I made a Chocolate Protein Cake and topped it with SF Raspberry Preserves…yuuuums!


After I digested, I did Rael Pilates 27 and burned 154 Calories in 45 minutes.


This morning I woke up at 6:15 for an early workout session at the gym with my friend Renata. She used to be a member at the gym I worked at but stopped going because it interfered with School and Work. I talked her into joining my gym since they are 24 Hours and she can go there whenever she wants =)

Before heading to the gym, I had a glass of Silk Chocolate Light Milk

After my workout, I Refueled with a brown Green Monster made with Spinach, 8 Strawberries, 1 scoop of Light Muscle Milk, Coffee, Light Silk Chocolate Milk, and Splenda…this tasted like dessert!


Have a great day loves!
