shame on me 😦 I didn’t go on a run last night. When I got home from work I was starving and it was so windy outside, that I figured it would be in my best interest to make dinner and run tomorrow. so there WILL be a run today no matter what… and im hoping for some good milage 🙂 I’m so glad I have this blog, because it keeps me honest with myself, and I will definitely get in a run today and i’m hoping for a good one!
Back onto yesterdays eats…
For breakfast I had a breakfast cookie. Turned out much better than last time. For the first time I used a protein powder in it and I loved it. I had gotten some samples from YouBar and one of them was a breakfast shake protein powder. It was chocolate flavored and I knew it had to be put in the cookie! Full review on YouBar products to come! I didn’t add any almond milk and it helped it become a harder cookie. I had 2/3 c oats, spoonful of almond butter, 1 heaping tbsp protein powder, 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp flax.
For lunch I went home and had a Miss Bender inspired lunch. I heated up a piece of TJ’s Naan bread and spread a little humbecue sauce on 9t (her hummus bbq sauce combo). I added turkey, spinach, and some sliced avocado and made it an open faced sandwich. On the side I made some kale chips for the first time! I bought a bunch of kale and needed to use some of it up and this was the perfect solution. I think I overcooked them a tad bit, but they still tasted awesome and I”m so glad I tried it out. Kale will be making a much more regular appearance here from now on! I also had a date with some mighty maple to satisfy my sweet tooth. I had a passionberry bliss Kombucha with this. OMG this was my favorite flavor by FAR! blackberry and passionfruit, amazing combo. I savored every last drop!
Dinner was a new one from my Williams Sonoma vegetarian cookbook. It was peanut braised tofu with noodles. I modified it a bit. I didn’t have any noodles, and the only vegetable it called for was snow peas. I had a bag of frozen veggies from TJ in the freezer so I cooked those up, sauteed up some tofu, made the peanut sauce and mixed the three together. It was pretty good, but the sauce had a really strong flavor. I think it would have been toned down a little with some noodles in there. I saved the rest of the sauce and had some leftovers so i’l be bringing some noodles home and eating the rest soon. Topped off with sesame seeds was a tasty addition. I was craving one of Jasmine’s blondies so that was the perfect dessert.
I went to Whole Foods with the roomies last night and picked up some of the ingredients I needed to make…. snobby joes!!! i’m gonna make them tonight for tomorrow and cant wait ! They were so tasty the last time I made them, and can’t wait to have them again. Ah Veganomicon, you are my favorite ❤
Well after work tonight i’ve got to go to my parents house and feed their fish, theyre on vacation. So i’ve mapped my run out and have a nice course in the works. i WILL do it! 🙂 Thanks for all your continued support. I can’t believe the race is next weekend… AH .. FREAKIN OUT!
Happy Hump DAY!
