My After, Oh and Peanutty Pumpkin Protein Dip

My After, Oh and Peanutty Pumpkin Protein Dip

 

Good morning.

Here’s just a quick peak at my hours after the marathon (if you care, or actually, even if you don’t). Ha.

I know a lot of distance runners swear by ice baths. I’ve never done one. I’m too much of a wimp to try it and I get cold super easily. I do the next best thing – take a warm shower and rub a little Biofreeze all over my legs.

I recently discovered this stuff and am in love with it. So much so that after I got a sample I hunted it down on Amazon (you can find it here).

Then I put on my CEP compression socks.

IMG_1043

Want to see a cool trick?

IMG_1044

Talent. I know.

I rocked this cool outfit the rest of the day.

IMG_2154

Lovely bathroom picture. And yes, those sweat cut off shorts are very old, but they just might be making a comeback.

I usually like to go through all my bags and admire all the freebies I got my hands on.

Expo swag bag.

IMG_0996IMG_0998

Awesome.

IMG_0999

Hmm… haven’t tried this yet.

 

Other swag I stocked up on at the expo.

IMG_1001IMG_1000

We were only given two, but Somehow a few extras found their way into my bag. I’ll be having a lot of this wrap in the near future. Ha.

IMG_1002

This was the glam headband the nice lady gave me. I can’t wait to try it out. I’ve been wanting a cool sparkly headband for awhile.

The race shirt. The cute toddler “helping” me with the photo shoot.

IMG_1011IMG_1013

His brother “helping” me by washing his hair in Turk’s water dish.

IMG_1014

The goodies I got my hands on at the finish line.

IMG_1039IMG_1042IMG_1041IMG_1040

That’s right, more tuna. That stuff is like over a $1 at the store so I had to stock up.

Smile

 

I made myself sit in bed for a couple hours and put my feet up Sunday afternoon while I wrote my recap post with another little “helper”

IMG_1048

and a cocktail in hand.

IMG_1047

Our celebration dinner looked a little something like this.

IMG_2146

My favorite wine 

IMG_2149

(yes, that glass is as big as it looks)

IMG_2148

antipasto salad with some extra dried oregano, seasoning and red pepper flakes,

IMG_2150

our favorite Filippi’s pizza (veggie pizza, no cheese, topped with nutritional yeast and a little red pepper).

IMG_2152

This ice cream (yes, again) on top of a few Vitatops, some PB Crave, dark chocolate frosting, etc.

 

I slept in those compression socks and wore them all day Monday. I mean all day. I taught classes in them

IMG_2162

(don’t mind my redder than red eye)

and even made a quick stop to Target while still sporting them at 8 pm.

IMG_2167

Ha ha. I had them on for over 31 hours. That’s so gross.

But….. my legs are feeling pretty good this morning so I’ll take it.

Smile

Enough nonsense.

Let me give you a little something I whipped up yesterday.

I put this together in less than five minutes, but was so impressed with it I thought I’d share.

Peanutty Pumpkin Protein Dip

(makes 2 servings)

1 1/2 cup pumpkin (366 grams)

1/4 cup PB2 (24 grams)

1/4 cup Splenda granulated

1 tablespoon brown sugar (or 2 teaspoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon sugar free maple syrup)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon chia

1/2-1 scoop vanilla protein powder (10-20 grams)

cinnamon (optional- I didn’t add it)

 

Mix it all up in a food processor just like chia cookie dough dip.

Put in a cute bowl.

IMG_1050

Serve with Flatout cinnamon crisps 

IMG_1058

and fruit of choice.

IMG_1055IMG_1053

If you want or need to (like I do), top with some fun nut butters (like PB Crave Razzle Dazzle or SunButter or both)

IMG_1059IMG_1060

Dig in.

IMG_1062

I can almost guarantee this dip will be repeated at some point today.

Mmmmm……

 

Okay, gotta go.

Have a great day!

Thanks so much for putting up with my novel of a race recap post. I’m going to try to keep things short this week so I don’t bore you!

    I love the race shirt! Way better than the ones we got from RNR St.Pete.

    That dip…YUM! The thing I love most about you, besides your ability to rock out super cute compression socks and the fact that you are an inspiring fitness machine, is the fact that I could totally eat at your house and be in heaven! You totally get my love of protein puddings and quirky eats! Oh and I totally bought a huge thing of red pepper flakes at Costco Sunday and thought of you! I hope you’re having a great week!

    I have got to restock my pb2 it’s been gone for a month, ug! I just want to make that dip though so I might just have to use real pb.

    I love your blog and have been stalking it for a while, so finally thought I would say Hi! I love your race recaps, and am super impressed with your swag collection! I do have a question for you; compression socks vs sleeves? What is your take? Do you like the foot part? Does it help with ankle soreness? I have sleeves, which I also wore for 30+ hours following my marathon… magic, I tell you, but I love the look of your socks (socks = less places for ankle fat to squish out… or ankle skin, whatever, it is squishy).

      STUFT Mama says:

      Hi Erin! I love blog stalkers. Ha! You know, I’ve never worn the sleeves although I imagine they might be better for during the summer and I do get annoyed that the sock part gets dirty when I’m just wearing them aroudn the house for recovery. But… if I’m wearing them with shoes I like the sock part. Hmm…. I couldn’t tell if it helped at all with ankle soreness. Maybe in the back? I’m not much help am I? 🙂 Thanks for saying “hi”. 🙂

    I feel relieved you put up your feet for a few hours( good to know were able to get some relax time), and girl go wash those compression socks,haha :p.

    Sweeet swag. I <3 tuna , so I'd have been all over those packs as well- they're so much more convenient than canned tuna!

    Oy, my heart sinks a little when I see another FABULOUS pumpkin recipe- I can't get pumkin here*tears*. Seriously ,this dip looks delicious- with the cinnamon chips , bloobs and pb-it all just looks perfect:)!

    that is some awesome swag! So far I’ve done 3 races with expos but basically got nothing… that’s what I get for doing races that are in their first or second year… Hopefully the Chicago Marathon will have some serious swag!

  9. 9

    I’m so making this when I get home! I’m loving the socks… 🙂 I think you look adorable in them!

  10. 10

    Gotta love compression socks! Oh and Biofreeze…amazing! Will the protein dips ever stop? I hope not! Keep ’em coming!

  11. 11

    You kill me. I laughed so hard at Flat Kitty in between your feet. Too much.

    Hi! I’ve been reading your blog daily for about 6 months now, and I noticed that you have been maintaining a dairy free diet and that you have gluten intolerance. Anyway, I am also sensitive to dairy. I also am allergic to gluten, peanuts, and a bunch of other foods (they give me migraines). I thought that you might be interested in this , http://www.WholesomeChow.com/, they have amazing allergy friendly baking mixes.

    pizza without the cheese is my favorite (don’t do or like cheese!) although, truth be told, i have been known to eat straight up pizza sauce with broccoli dippers … so i probably don’t even need the bread!
    i do, however, need that protein pumpkin delicious concoction!

    Lisa says:

    That pumpkin dip looks fabulous! I can honestly say all of my recipes this past month have contained pumpkin, obsessed I think! Haha I’m impressed you kept your socks on for that amount of time. At least your legs feel good!

    Samantha says:

    That dip looks amazing.

    If your Target is anything like the WA states ones people probably didn’t even notice.

    I am not a distance runner but even after an extended hiking you aren’t getting me in anything ice cold. Too big of a wimp.

    Amy says:

    You aren’t boring me…I love your recap posts. 🙂

    That dip looks good…I made your protein cookie dough for the first time recently and LOVED it!

    I love race swag bags. The half marathon that I do in Appleton, WI is near the Kimberly Clark plant, so I’ve gotten diapers and wipes in mine LOL!

    girl I LIVE for Biofreeze. I have the professional sizes in my bathroom, no joke. and if you ever come across the Biofreeze Wipes, get some!! when I first saw them I thought, meh… they sent me a sample and WOW, they are very powerful. my favorite method now.

    I can do that with my ankles too! 😀

      STUFT Mama says:

      I just discovered it after I got a sample from a race. IN LOVE. They have wipes? I need to find some of those. 🙂 PS- flexible ankles rock. 🙂

    Yummm!! That dip looks SO good!! 🙂 I love your compression socks, too. Do they have any benefits for shin splints?
    ps: I like the way you spell your name 😉

      STUFT Mama says:

      I like the way you spell yours too. Ha ha. Not sure about compression socks and shin splints. I’m a newbie whne it comes to compresson gear. 🙂 Might be worth looking into though.
