Peachy Keen

September 17, 2010

Started out my morning with an old favorite:  The Green Monster

1 cup vanilla almond milk, 1 banana, 1.5 cups of spinach, handful of ice.  Plain and simple, my friends.

Topped with ginger snap granola.  Some of which sank to the bottom of the glass, leaving my with a fun surprise at the end of my monster.

Talk about good running fuel.  I drank this ~30 minutes before I headed out for my run and it didn’t do anything weird to my stomach.  I thought it might since it was a lot of liquid to drink before physical activity.

The Run:

  • Mile splits: 9:30, 8:51, 8:50
  • Total time: 27:13

I REALLY had to push it at the end of that 3rd mile.  I felt like I was at a dead sprint!  I followed up the run with a quick 15-minute lifting session.

While I was showering this tofu was being pressed.

Into the crock pot it went.

I’ll get back to this later…

I was dreaming up something decadent for lunch.  Decadent and peachy, mmmmm.

Chocolate Hazlenut Peach Sanwich:

Yes, you heard me, peach sandwich!

Start by slicing and grilling one peach.

Grill marks make everything look better

Toast two slices of bread, smear with Justin’s Chocolate Hazlenut Butter and layer with peach slices.  Lucky for me only half of the peach fit on the sandwich forcing me to eat the rest right out of the pan.

Is that a fuzz on my bread?  Good thing I had this picture and was able to locate/remove that fuzzy culprit!

Having this sit in a tupperware container during my bus ride to school actually made the sandwich even better!  The bread was slightly crunchy and still warm but the heat made it soften enough to really stick to the peaches.

See what I mean?

This sandwich was good.  Like text 3 people telling them you “just ate the best sandwich ever” good.  DE-vour.

The afternoon included some apple snacking along side Michel Foucault’s The History of Sexuality. The apple?  Good.  The book?  Not so much.


Back to the tofu.

My Thursday work schedule presents sort of a problem in terms of dinner.  I get home between 7:30 and 8 PM and after a long day at school I’m not particularly jazzed to come home, cook dinner and eat at 9 PM.

Solution = The crock pot

I came across this recipe for Slow Cooker BBQ Tofu on Mama Pea’s blog.  It was SO hard to sit at work till 7 knowing this was at home waiting to be eaten.  That and wondering if my apartment was on fire…

Turns out these pictures are not appealing but I promise bbq tofu atop a pile of protein packed garlic potatoes was just what I needed after a long day of work.  I gobbled this plate up so fast!

I thought about getting seconds but I knew it was just because I had been so hungry that I felt the need to keep on eating.  I decided to wait a little to see if hunger returned.  It didn’t.  Glad I waited.

Not glad that I had this to clean after dinner!


While I set the crock pot on the “Low 8 Hours” setting I don’t think there was enough liquid in there to be cooking for that long.  Next time I’ll add wayyy more water!

Hopefully this does the trick…

After dinner I forced convinced Joey to join me in a little bathroom cleaning.  We know how to have a good time let me tell you.
