Beet Still My Heart

August 10, 2010

Ahhh, the joys of having someone to run with!  Joey and I set out for a lovely evening run around 7 pm.  The thought of dinner waiting in the fridge helped me stay focused.

  • Mile 1 – 9:56
  • Mile 2 – 9:52
  • Mile 3 – 9:46
  • Mile 4 – 9:37

Lucky for us it’s been rainy and cloudy all day so by 7 it had stopped raining and was pleasantly cool 🙂

Raspberry Vinaigrette:

  • 2T apple cider vin
  • 1T EVOO
  • 1/2T murple syrple aka maple syrup
  • 8 organic raspberries all mashed up

When I cut into the biggest beet it was a mix of colors, so fun!

“Just Beet It” salad:

  • Organic greens
  • Navel orange cut into pieces
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Beets
  • Raspberry Vinaigrette

This salad really needed some goat cheese but I couldn’t justify buying it right before I left.  It would just go to waste while I’m gone!

Can you tell it was pouring earlier?  Believe me it was!

I regret to tell you this is the end of the beet wordplay (for now) he he

Fast forward to this morning: plate o’ thick rolled oats

I made these with 1/2 a cup of almond milk which I attribute to the thickness.  Mixed with blueberries, raspberries and a new-to-me nut butter.

Justin’s Chocolate Macademia.  Talk about delicious!  I can’t believe I’ve had this sitting in my pantry for weeks and hadn’t tried it yet!!

And we’re off to the airport.  See Talk to you all in a week, enjoy your time with Joey!
