A few of my favorite things

June 27, 2010

Like quiet morning runs (that last longer than I planned on) and eating and baking.

Morning run fuel = 1/2 banana + smear of PB

I planned on doing 4, but was feeling really good and went 5

  • Mile 1 – 9:35
  • Mile 2 – 9:21
  • Mile 3 – 9:47
  • Mile 4 – 10:00 due to HUGE unexpected hill
  • Mile 5 – 9:25
  • Total time = 48:13 — not too shabby!

Breakfast = VOOs + PB BSS + Nibs.  Whoa, acronym overload?  VOO = Vegan Overnight Oats, BSS = Banana Soft Serve.  I’m beginning to think this blog needs a separate tab for acronyms, no?

I expected the cocoa nibs to be bitter, but they were surprisingly pleasant tasting and added the perfect crunch to my oats 🙂

Spending too much at the grocery store really works up a girl’s appetite .  I was more than ready for lunch!

Guess I didn’t get enough nibs!

That’s Noosa Honey Yoghurt on toasted bread with cocoa nibs.  Yeah, it was a little weird…

And I got to try out my new peach jam — it was pure bliss, can’t wait to try it on a samich!

More shot glass hummus + apple . I LOVE apple and hummus together 🙂  After I had refueled I was ready to take on Ashley’s Vegan Graham Crackers.  I’ve been wanting to make these for WEEKS, but I didn’t have 5 important ingredients and they all seemed to be expensive so I’ve been buying a couple a week and FINALLY had everything!

Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients

Ready, set, mix

Ta da!!  They take 14 minutes to cook and I was done cleaning up with 7 minutes to spare!  It smells DELICIOUS in this apartment 🙂

And now on to a few more of my favorite things, like snacking on grahams and lounging on the couch and watching a movie 😀

Half marathon race training begins tomorrow!!! SO SO EXCITED

Happy Sunday!
