Oh what glorious weather we had today, and tomorrow is only supposed to get better!
Work went by quickly even though I wanted to be outside. I just kept reminding myself that there was a run waiting for me at home.
My lunch was stellar today!
I also had some lovely Florida strawberries along side.
I had my snack on the fly in the car with NPR.
Look at that sunshine! I was a little worried about this bar because of my last experience, but that on was actually a lot better. There were actually cranberries and raspberries visible in it and not just flavoring. I liked all of the chia seeds in it, but again the dates sort of bothered me. Plus there are 22g of sugar in them! Expensive + 22g sugar + dates = I will not buy these again.
So when I woke up this morning I had a special package on the counter, but I wanted to wait for natural light for photos and I knew the second I opened it, I would want to use it!
My food processor from Nick finally got here!!!! Cute note right? Love him!
Sissy and I were stoked!
She was actually more excited that I got more bird food for the feeder, hence her gaze towards the window.
Before opening I wanted to get in a nice little run in the sun!
I did a nice little 3.5miles and even though my legs felt heavy I finished a minute faster then any of my runs 2 weeks ago. I will chalk it up to the nice weather. So many trees were blooming and the daffodils were so pretty! the second I got back into the apartment it was time to open her up and start making dinner!
Already using the dicer without watching the 1 hour tutorial DVD 🙂
What is in there?
Well given that it is Passover I made a totally different version of my favorite Jewish dish, latkes.
Sweet Potato Latkes – makes 8
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 onion
- 1 clove garlic
- ~1tsp thyme
- salt & pepper
- 2 tbs whole wheat flour
- 2 eggs
- Grate the potato, onion, garlic and carrots
- Dump grated veggies into a large bowl and combine with other ingredients
- Grease baking sheet well! (I did not do this well and missed out on a lot of the cruchies)
- Heat over to 375
- form 8 patties out of mixture and place on greased sheet
- bake 20min
- bake another 20min
I love kale and Nick loves balsamic vinegar, so we compromise.
Another reason I love Wegmans besides their bread?
Their meat. What other grocery store (Besides Whole Foods) has store brand grass feed organic beef? I grilled this little baby up for Nick’s dinner.
After dinner Nick and I went for a little walk around the neighborhood. It was too nice to be inside! I am hoping we can do this more often during the week.
I brought along 2 coconut chocolate chip cookies.
Long post tonight!
I can’t wait to make more things in the food processor! What are you favorite things to make? Pesto, nut butters, dough, graham crackers and crustini are already on my list!
See ya in the morning bright!
Good morning! How are you doing today? The rain has finally stopped and the wind is on its way out of here! I can actually see the sky, which hasn’t happened since Sunday morning. I cannot wait to run outside today 🙂
i started off my morning with another breakfast that was not oats! I am planning and OIAJ tomorrow.
As for today, I had eggs in a hole!
Along with my eggs I had a mini cinnamon honey Sanibel pb with champagne mango (!!).
Question for today seen on the morning news:
Do you think McDonalds should retire Ronald McDonald because he promotes unhealthy eating aimed towards children?
Well it is still raining and very windy today. I cannot wait for 80 on Friday!
Biggest Loser tonight! I think I finally actually like someone but I will know for sure after tonight. So far Jillian is the best even if she is a pill pusher.
I really hope to get outside this afternoon, but this rain needs to get out of dodge.
I switched up my breakfast this morning to get in my other 1/2 of my multigrain with flax Wegman’s bagel.
1/2 bagel with Sanibel pb and banana, green monster and coffee.
In my monster:
- 3/4 banana
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cup plian Stonyfield
- 1 tbs flax
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- dash of cinnamon
My computer is about to die and I still have some more green to slurp down.
It was really hard for me to get up with my alarm at 5:30AM this morning. It is rainy and foggy, but Sissy would never let me miss her feeding!
There are already two accidents on my road to work so I am going to try and get out the door a little early.
Return to oat bran!
- 1/3 cup oat bran
- 1/3 cup water, skim, Kefir
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbs wheat berries
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- few bits of nuts over chocolate and raspberries trail mix
- honey cinnamon pb from Sanibel!!!
No that is not poo in my oats, it is chocolate covered almonds! At first I was mad that all the chocolate in this trail mix had melted, but now I kind of like it this way. You are guaranteed some of the good stuff in every bite!
Side note: Did you know that golf clubs do not fly free on Southwest?
Time to hit the road!
Remember Meatless Monday!
