I blame Miles. I was having dinner with my friend Briar and her father Miles when, as it usually does, the topic of fitness and its purported benefits came up:
Me: "I haven't been sick since I started working out two years ago."
Miles: "Oh, you'll get sick. Don't think that you won't."
This conversation took place on Saturday, and now I am sick! After approximately 15 hours of sleep, I feel a bit better, thanks for asking. And while I am still going to hit the gym today, I am first going to comfort myself with a serving of my new favorite dessert. It's a sort of mock chocolate mousse that is high in protein and a wee bit tangy. I've been trying to get the sugar monkey off my back, and while one of the ingredients has the potential carcinogen acesulfame potassium, this is a pretty guilt-free indulgence.
Take a half a cup of nonfat yogurt (I like Trader Joe's European style or Nancy's Nonfat) and stir in half a scoop of GNC vanilla whey powder (I don't recommend Trader Joe's Aria brand or their generic whey powder, both are unpleasant), and a teaspoon of cocoa powder. Let sit for a moment until the instantized whey powder melts. Enjoy.
