Pumped Up Pudding Recipe

I’m pretty happy I decided to join Meg in her October challenge of having a a different breakfast everyday of the month! Happy because it brought me to today’s recipe.  I was pleasantly surprised how creamy and thick this came out.   And it kept me full all morning at work so that’s a major win!


Pumped Up Sweet Potato Pudding

Serves 1

  • 1 medium sweet potato, cooked.  (about 1 cup cubed)
  • 3 oz of pressed tofu (i used extra firm)
  • 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 liquid of choice*
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Any toppings you’d like. I went with cacao nibs for some crunch:)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.

* I started with 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk and then added about 1/4 of water to help it blend.

I loved this exactly how it was, just slightly sweet and extra nutty:) But if you prefer things a little sweeter add in your preferred sweetener.  I bet 1 or 2 dates would be awesome!

Who knew pudding could be so satisfying with a wonderful balance of nutrients including over 16 grams of protein!

Too bad I have 27 days to go until I have this for breakfast again! Although this would be great any time of day.

Some may find this strange, but I just find it good;) #strangebutgood

Try it out and let me know what you think!

In other news, I’m looking forward to the weekend because I will be taking part in a Color Run along with some of my family members:)  The run is to raise money for those hurt by wildfires in our area this year, which sadly is a lot of people.  It should be a fun event though and I’m really looking forward to it:)

I hope you all have a great weekend too!




October Goals and a Challenge

Hello friends.   Happy October to you.

Its a new month and I’m ready for some new goals.  Its been awhile since I’ve done a goal post but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been setting them! I’m a big believer in goals and challenges. And I have lots of plans in my head but I need that push to accomplish them.

So for this month my goals are:

  1. Have a different breakfast everyday of the month. Last month Meg challenged herself to have a different breakfast everyday for September and she rocked at it.  She is continuing that challenge for herself for October too so I decided to join her, because why not?! It looked fun and delicious and it will challenge me to get a little more creative as I tend to stick to the same 3 or 4 breakfasts:) I will try and share any new recipes I come up with if they turn out well!
  2. Study my scriptures everyday.  I try to read everyday but I could definitely be better at this.  I need to focus on really studying the good word and not just reading it!
  3. Prioritize my time better.  I have big hopes for building my personal training business more but sometimes I get lazy and distracted when i should really be trying to get the word out!

Well, I’m feeling good about this month. I think these will keep me busy for sure!

Before I go let me post my first breakfast of the month:

Quinoa flakes with mixed nuts, goji berries, and fresh almond milk and some coconut oil
