Mashups of the week

Yes! Another one! I’m on a roll baby. You are actually going to get not one, but TWO mashups in this post. I know…unreal.

I found this winner last night. I plan on using this in class next week.

While you’re rolling with the tiger, you can make yourself  another kind of mashup. A chickpea-avocado wrap kind of mashup.

I love a wrap. If you can put it in a tortilla, you should. One of my old favs was cottage cheese wrapped up in a tortilla with hot sauce. Don’t hate. It sounds kind of weird, but it is awesome. I don’t eat cottage cheese anymore (after I went vegan for a bit, I just couldn’t stomach it anymore), but this use to be a go-to lunch for me. These days if it is made of chickpeas, I want to stuff it all in my mouth.

If you need an easy lunch idea, this is for you!

  • can of chickpeas
  • 100 calorie wholly guacamole
  • tortilla of your choice (my fav are the whole wheat La Tortilla Factory tortillas)
  • cholula
  • spinach
  • laughing cow cheese
  • salt & pepper

Wash and drain the chickpeas, then place in a bowl and mash. I like to mash with our Cuisinart hand blender. Add in guacamole and continue mashing. Add in salt & pepper to taste. Grab that tortilla and smear in the laughing cow cheese. Add in 1/3 – 1/2 of the chickpea/avocado mash and top with cholula. Throw in some spinach leaves and wrap it all up. BAM! Lunch is ready!

New mashup alert!

Wow! It has been a while since I’ve posted a mashup of the week. Well, I’ve got a winner for you today!!! I found this gem while putting together my “end of summer” playlist for my upcoming class on Saturday. I mean, I am really stoked on this song. It’s amazing how finding an awesome new song energizes my whole being. I think you could use it for a fast tempo climb, jumps, or a tabata. I think I’ll be going with fast tempo climb. Ah, I feel as giddy as a school girl right now. I really hope you guys like this one. Happy Friday!!!!
