Good Morning and happy Friday! Let’s recap some food from the week, shall we?
Because Coffee is basically its own food group:
This was a tofu sandwich from Veggie Grill. It had chargrilled eggplant, house-pickled carrots, white cabbage, cucumber, veg mayo, fresh jalapenos, basil, cilantro, mint leaves. It was good, but I think I would order something different next time. That side is cauliflower mashed potatoes. They were also just ok, sadly.
Homemade smorgasbord of whole wheat pasta, roasted squash + broccoli, edamame, spinach and feta cheese and a side of roasted sweet potato fries. Yay for easy and healthy dinners at home.
And, some Oregon Tillamook Ice Cream to satisfy my sweet tooth. Balance, people.
I stocked up on some pumpkin for oatmeal and baking purposes! Pumpkin oatmeal with chia seeds, blueberries and peanut butter is my favorite hearty breakfast for chilly mornings. It’s not very pretty, but it’s delicious. And filling. And bonus – very nutritious.
Pumpkin is full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and fiber, and the blueberries are full of antioxidants. Add that to oatmeal’s inherent fiber and protein and the healthy fats in peanut butter and chia seeds and you have yourself a balanced breakfast to keep you full! I like to make my oatmeal with milk (extra protein) and sometimes I add a banana too. Paired with coffee – always.
And workouts for the week included lots of running because the weather is so nice and because I love running.
- Sunday – 12 miles
- Monday – 5 miles
- Tuesday – rest
- Wednesday – 6 miles
- Thursday – hike
- Friday – plan for hot yoga!
Plans for the weekend include eating some good food (few options from the Bucket List), a long run, and some get togethers. What are your plans?
