2 P.M. on Tuesday

November 3, 2010

Yesterday my first class was cancelled, meaning I didn’t have to be at school till 2 PM.  I got SO much done with that much time in the morning/afternoon which makes me really excited for next semester because I won’t have class till 2 EVERY Tuesday, score!

Woke up for a quick run.  Warm up mile on the tread + 3 miles outside.  Have Colorado Falls always been this BEAUTIFUL and I just haven’t noticed?

The Run:

  • Mile splits: 10:00, 9:28, 9:16, 8:48
  • Total time: 37:35

By the way I’ve been wearing my bondiband over my ears to keep them warm on morning runs — hope it isn’t horribly strange looking!

I came home and did the following:

1.  Made breakfast — obviously this was my first priority.

I made my usual pot of oats (1/2 cup oats, pinch of salt, 3/4 cup water, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/2 banana, 1/2T ground flax).

Then I ran into a giant dilemma.  Regular whipped banana oats or pumpkin oats??

I say, why choose when you can have both?

Topped with cinnamon granola, mixed berry compote and vanilla cinnamon peanut butter.

Ginger peach tea + honey on the side.

2. Roasted veggies for some meal later this week.

I love having things cooked ahead of time, it makes my life so much less hectic.

Don’t worry, pictures to come!

3.  Made Angela’s Multiseed Crackers

Flax seeds are so fascinating to me!  I soaked them in water and they got so gel-y(?)

These were super easy to make and delicious.  Definitely try them with hummus.

I cooked them in the oven on 170* for an hour then flipped and turned the oven up to 190* for another hour.  They broke apart so each cracker had its own unique shape.

4.  Made lunch.

Black beans + roma tomato + salt + pepper in an Ezekial wrap (which completely fell apart when I tried to pick the burrito up at lunch time).

2 carrots + hummus on the side.  Good thing I bought two containers of hummus this week…

5. and 6.  Finished reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, which for those of you curious is a Sherlock Holmes novel and showered.

Quite the successful morning if you ask me!

    I have some blueberry flax seeds in my pantry and I think these would make GREAT crackers! So cool!

    Oh man I love flax seeds. A friend of mine actually made a pre-run mixture of them in water with lemon. I personally like the slimy texture so I was all over that! Such great health benefits.

    I loved days where I didn’t have class until late. One semester, I only had a night class at 6!! That semester rocked!

    Hi girlie 🙂 Adorable blog. I definitely get anxiety as well over vacation foods. Wondering what will settle well in my stomach and what-not. Not to mention not knowing what’s out there.
    I love late classes. I’m a total night owl hehe.

    Love the oats! Ezekiel wraps never hold up for me, they always break apart.
