Ah, Kings Island. A wonderous place that's full of overpriced food but oh so wonderful roller coasters that test your nerve and at times, expose your stomach contents. Thankfully, it only tested my nerves haha.
I grew so much closer to my mom during our time together at kings island. It was her first time ever riding a roller coaster (that's more than just a kiddie ride), and she was about as nervous as ever. Thankfully, the line for the Diamondback was that long so we only had to wait in line for like, 10 minutes. 230 feet up in the air and over 5,000 feet of track later at over 80 mph, we were ready for more rides to conquer. I just had so much fun, and we had a relatively light lunch at Subway which was good for our wallets and stomachs haha.
Also, I was so grateful for the starbucks near the entrance because by the time i was done, I was ready for some caffeine and sugar. I tried a green tea latte for the first time, and I have to say, thanks to its relatively modest caffeine content, it did its job in perking me up slightly. I'll have to get that more often :)
That's the Diamondback. It's not a great picture since the sun was in my eyes.
Okay, onto something yummy :)
What is this you say?
Maybe another picture would be better:
This, although its reminiscent of a buscuit from Red Lobster, is a breakfast cookie whose recipe I derived from Vegweb.com. Really great website-- you should check it out :)
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 cup of oatmeal
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 cup of coconut flakes
1/2 cup of agave nectar
1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Step one: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and oil a cookie pan/sheet
Step two: Mix together the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, and coconut flakes (also add a little salt if you want).
Step three: Mash up the banana with the agave nectar
Step four: Add in the sugar, olive oil, and vanilla extract.
Step five: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix, mix, mix!
Step six: Add some water if the dough is kind of dry.
Step seven: Spoon the dough by tablespoons onto your cookie sheet
Step eight: Bake for around 10-20 minutes and enjoy <3
I'm sure as heck enjoying these. They are ideal for before I run because they're light and full of medium chain triglicerides which provide me with quick energy.
Speaking of runs, today we have a speed workout and tomorrow morning, I'm gonna be running in the morning by myself which i enjoy to an extent since sometimes I miss having my friends next to me whilst we endure the pain together.
Have a great Tuesday :)
