Home » Food » Boxing and My Post Work Out Dinner

I bought a Fabfind coupon for $20 to attend 5 boxing classes at Punch Fitness (1968 Avenue Road). I couldnt resist. It was in my neighborhood and I knew I would like it. Infact,  Im loving my workouts so much that after a few classes I tried “sparring”. The first time I watched two men spar, I said to myself “I can’t do that..how do you just go into a ring, and hit someone”. The next class I tried it and I have to admit, it was weird but I liked it. It was a great workout and fun. The following week I was actually EAGER to get into the ring.

momwhoruns is in the ring...sparring!!

When I get home, Im hungry  but not really hunger (do you know what I mean) ? I really want to eat something FRESH. So I whipped up a batch of fresh salsa.

All you need is: a few tomatillos, a lime, 2-3 tomatoes, cilantro, white onion. Tomatillos are not something you find in grocery stores, so when I see them I usually pick up a few with the intention of making this delicious salsa.

ingredients for fresh salsa!!

All you do is chop up the veggies, squeeze some lime juice over it and bingo – you have the best-est salsa EVER. Sometimes I add jalapeno – but this time I didnt have them on hand.

5 minutes later - fresh salsa

Oh yeah – I ate them with the most delicious tortilla chips that I bought in the States. Naturally I only bought one bag -what was I thinking?

I also made a kale smoothie:

All you need is: kale, a banana, an apple and orange juice or water.

Kale, Banana, Apple

End Product…

It felt great to have an awesome workout and to eat healthy after the workout too.

What’s your favorite post workout meal?
