I have such an AMAZING recipe today, but before we get to that I have to share my locker room experience earlier this morning.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my gym is pretty swank and since I live in Tinseltown, this means celebs go there quiet often to skinify themselves even further or as P diddy does, just hand around and talk on their iphone.
Anyhow, I know Renee Zellweger is a regular at the gym. She’s very slim, but I’ve never actually seen her workout there. As a finished up my workout, sweaty and stinky, I walked into the fairly empty locker room (as it was around 11 which is a dead zone on weekdays for most gyms), there she was, skinny Bridget Jones herself, texting (probably hunk-o-licious, Bradley Cooper), on the locker room white linen couches (I know, right! linen couches in a locker room?!).
I’ve been around many celebs as I used to act and do PA jobs for films. But she hung around there and I needed to change! I dont know why, but the fact that she would see me naked intimidated me. I can just imagine her text to Bradley,
“OMG, this chick just walked in and is paler than me! And look at her arms! Mine are WAY more ripped! right, hun?! LOL 🙂 ”
I managed to bypass her, but she may have caught a “side-boob” glimpse.
Eh, whatever. I honestly think I look better than she does, she could use a few ensures. She needs to find that inner bridget and put on a little flesh so she doesnt blow away.
I know, I’m a bitch.
Moving On….Thank goodness its getting sunnier here in L.A., a perfect time for…..Ice Cream. So I decided to crack out that ice cream maker! This time I had a plan and the ice bowl was in the freezer for a week so I KNEW it was cold enough this time!
Here’s what went in:
-1 cup 2% cottage cheese
-1/2 cup almond milk
-1/8 tsp xanthum gum
-2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 tbs honey, splenda, stevia, sugar, agave, etc and add more according to your desired sweetness level
-handful of bloobs!
If you dont have an ice cream maker, heres something you can do instead:
-in an ice tray, freeze the almond milk and whip with the rest of the mixture in a blender.
Blend the whole mixture (minus the bloobs) in a blender and then pour it into a big ziploc baggie. Fill a bigger baggie with ice and rock salt (aka, ice cream salt) and place the one with the ice cream mixture inside. Shake vigorously (and might I suggest you skip upper body strength training that day) and voila! I did this when I taught the cooking classes to the kids. Its a “poor man’s” ice cream maker.
Can I just tell you how AMAZING this turned out! I had some with puffed kamut and chia seeds (which I call “healthy sprinkles”). I’m so having this for breakfast!
Ok, I’m out of cottage cheese….so I’m off to replenish that!
