The Botany of DesirePosted: October 28, 2009
Gah! I did it again! Erased my post by clicking something and then typing…not really sure how I did it…annoying…starting over…
The Botany of Desire with M. Pollan is on MDPtv right now and I really wanted to get back to it!
My morning was a little hectic and I didn’t get to my lunch until 1pm. Good thing I popped some prunes before me meeting ;) I will spare you the picture today.
When I did get to lunch my beanie deliciousness did not disappoint.
Leftover bean enchilada, salad with carrots, maters, sprouts and chipotle hummus for dressing.
Because I didn’t get to have lunch until later I wasn’t very hungry for my snack, but knew I needed to eat something before my run. I had my apple during the car ride home.
I had planned on going to the gym and doing intervals, but it was so nice out when I left work I thought I might as well run outside. 72 degrees and partially cloudy, how could I not run outside??? Someone smack me next time I try to go to the gym on a nice day…crazy I tell you! My fingers didn’t even get cold!
I ended up doing about 6.2 miles, core work, push ups and dips.
Then it was dinner time!!!
I knew I wanted to use some maple apple sausage and southern greens, but I didn’t know how. This is what I came up with…
Quinoa base cooked in veggie broth. Southern blend greens cooked in simmered onion, garlic, apple and veggie broth. One sausage. This was actually pretty good and very fall! I might let the leftovers heat up together to get the flavors to meld a little bit more next time. I will see if that makes the flavors a little bit more bold.
Back to the Botany! While watching I consumed a lovely ice cream sandwich!
Alright I am going to hang out with M.P., Nick and Sicily. Next I think we the potato…always a questionable starch. Sour cream anyone?
Nick Night! ❤
