Count ’em 1-2-3

July 1, 2010

Wow, was I on a course-kick yesterday or what?  As you may remember my lunch yesterday consisted of 3 courses and it turned out my dinner did too.  This was totally un-planned, as we joined my family for dinner at their humble adode for a mom-prepared meal.

Course #1 = Gazpacho.  Why you ask?  Well at the Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago there was a tent selling this particular chilled soup and Joey innocently asked, “What’s gahzzpatchoo?”  Clearly he’d never heard of or tasted gazpacho before and my mom felt that this was a problem that needed fixing.  Sidenote: I’m not a fan of gazpacho.  I feel like I’m eating a bowl of salsa, but for you, Mom, I’ll try anything 🙂

Hmmm, where are these goodies going?

Ahhh, onto a salad of course, for course #2!

Mmm, I know this was a Cooking Light recipe but I need to find it because that dressing was great!  It had a spicy kick that was just perfect.

Joey is working on something special here for course #3

Or maybe he’s doing more playing than working…

I have NO idea what sterno is made of but it’s BRIGHT purple and makes a pretty cool flame!

Oh yes, we did have fondue!!  And vegan fondue to boot!

The banana was definitely my favorite, but for the most part I think I ate more plain fruit than chocolate-dipped.  Result: I felt satisfied afterwards, whereas everyone else was complaining about how full they felt!  I was even feeling a little hungry by the time I got into bed so I made sure to have a snack before my 3-miler this morning — half banana + smear of PB per usual.

Recap: Yesterday I had the choice of cross training, i.e. walking, biking, swimming or doing a 2-mile run.  I chose the 2-mile and went outside around 5 to do it.  It was AWFUL.  So so so hot, even at 5 and short distances are so much harder for me to run lately. Anyways I got it over with.  Today’s 3-mile felt rough too, but Joey pointed out that I totally book it when I’m going uphill.  Good for me! 🙂

I’ve been neglecting my steel-cut oats lately so it was time to whip up a batch for breakfast.

+cherries and grahams (which have been making bi-daily appearances lately he he).  Someone please tell me how to de-seed cherries!!! I actually swalled a pit on accident today!  Oh and I sprinkled some sucanat on top.  It gets all melty and deeelicious!

Lunch included this salad with romaine, orange bell pepp, apple and 2 hummuses

Honey Noosa — this stuff is dessert worthy!

Just Bunches for some crunch action!  Also brought some ORGANIC strawberries.  I scolded my mom for buying non-organic yesterday!

And that concludes today’s edition of What Did Lauren Eat.  Now I know I promised to continue my lecture discussion on MY idea of health, BUT I think this post is long enough as is and I just finished my last day of summer class so I think my flightiness can be excused!  I promise to finish the post tomorrow when I have THE ENTIRE DAY OFF!!!!!!!!  I’m a little excited, can you tell?

Till next time, friends.  Happy Thursday Faux Friday! 😀
