Treating myself

June 11, 2010

Today was a day of pampering

I had a GLORIOUS breakfast… Bruleed Banana Steel Cut Oats

By the way I know this is a food blog but I think healthy food and healthy exercise go hand in hand so I’ll mention that I ran 3 miles upon waking up on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday — morning workouts you are so refreshing.  I did, however, take the morning off today, I mean come on it’s Friday and this allowed ample time for steel cut oats.


Banana cutting


Brown sugar-ing, yum!

Melted with the broiler and topped with toasted almonds — it was SO GOOD you must try this

After class I dashed into Louisville for a haircut at Firiel and as usual I was not disappointed at how my hair turned out 🙂  My parents’ office is in the same building (they are both massage therapists, yes I am VERY lucky) so I popped in and found my mom and my sister, who invited me to lunch at Udi’s, score!

Udi’s is a Denver based company that specializes in bread, granola and gluten-free food.  They have several cafes in Colorado and there just so happens to be one in Louisville.  I’ve NEVER had something bad at Udi’s and besides having mouth-watering sandwiches, their potato salad is to die for — my whole family is OBSESSED.

My mom got the Rueben

My sister got the Vegan Delight

And for me, something new — Eggplant Panini (I have a bit of an obsession with goat cheese lately)

Check out how BIG this sandwich was!

And this was just HALF of it (I brought home the other half for later).  It was nothing short of delicious.

Last night’s dinner went a little something like this…


Quinoa & Bean Stuffed Peppers

Simple and flavor-packed plus my roommate, Hannah (the go-to expert on everything) educated me on quinoa — it’s great for vegetarians because it’s a complete protein (meat is also one and eggs are almost one), but it tasted good to this non-vegetarian too!

PLUS look how much we had leftover…

This dinner is certain to be repeated in the near future.

      The oatmeal was divine, thanks for the recipe! My sister and I were wondering what the loaf of bread that made that sandwich looked like haha!
