For some reason I’ve found myself at the end of the week with a bunch of leftover stuff. And by stuff I mean stories, pictures and workouts. Lucky for you all, I’m now writing a round up post to update you on all the happenings that didn’t make the cut earlier in the week.
1. Valentine’s Day Mud Pie
It’s not Valentine’s Day without a big slice of chocolate ice cream, fudge and whipped cream. Joey and I devoured this.
2. New oatmeal glass
I have absolutely no idea what Chimay is but I do know this glass is perfect for oatmeal and really, that’s all that matters.
Gahhh, this was gooood.
And I obviously had too much fun photographing it. It needed time to cool down, okay?
3. Hit salad
As in salads are either a hit or a miss for me in terms of being filling. This was a hit. Or maybe the two pieces of pesto pizza I ate were the hit.
4. Biggest brussel sprout ever
5. Whole Foods robbed me
Everytime I go to WF and the credit card machine asks “Is this amount okay?” I’m tempted to say no because it’s always more than I expect it to be.
I went to the “Grains, Beans, Greens” bar and got lentils, wheatberries, chard, tomato sauce, asparagus and tempeh.
To be honest, I was really disappointed in this meal, Whole Foods. It was bland and watery. Thank goodness tempeh tastes like heaven.
6. Have you ever seen a celery root??
I needed it to make a roasted white vegetable soup. Would you like the recipe? Celery root is a beast to peel. Mostly because it didn’t fit in my hand and I couldn’t get a good grip. I kept throwing it on accident!
8. I’m in the midst of a tedious “diet project”
Or so my health and nutrition teacher calls it. We have to keep track of everything we eat and drink for 3 days (Thursday-Saturday) and enter it into a program that calculates the nutrition information of our food. It’s interesting but so much work especially when I have to create new recipes from scratch.
9. Exercise Round Up
Monday: 3 mile run
Tuesday: 2.7 mile run (from my apartment to my car, which I forgot to pick up after Joey took me to dinner on Monday, oops!)
Thursday: hot yoga…sooooo good!
Friday: 3 mile run
I hope the sun stays out so I can get in more outdoor running this weekend.
