This is going to be a food heavy post tonight! Today was an unscheduled rest day from running/working out. I have trained pretty hard since Sunday, and while my body feels strong and capable, mentally I needed a break.
Plus, a glass of wine sounded amazing! I don’t drink often at all… maybe a few times per month. And tonight I wanted to kick back with a nice glass (or 2!) of red wine.
Before I get into the wine, let’s start with breakfast, shall we?!
I ordered a soy + SF cinnamon dulce latte from Starbucks this morning. I normally order a black Americano but today I wanted something a bit different. Their SF cinnamon dulce syrup is on point when added with soy milk!
10 AM is when I typically eat breakfast. I have never been one to eat right when I awake. 10AM has always been the time I typically eat breakfast. Before I left for the office I scrambled egg whites with onion, spinach and red bell pepper and topped with cherry tomatoes. Once I get to work I place my container in the fridge and eat my eggs cold. I actually like them chilled!
On the side I toasted a few slices of sprouted bread and had half of an avocado.
Lunch was Pacific Foods butter nut squash (I love this one!), over some Jasmin rice and topped with a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper. I ate it with multi grain rice crisps and Lilly’s red pepper hummus. Super simple and very good!
I stopped by the grocery store after work to pick up some dinner things… like bread, smoked Gouda and wine! 😉 A little pre-dinner snack!
As I was walking around the wine aisle, I noticed these chicken sausages in the cold case nearby. It had been quite a while since I made them and they sounded delish!
More wine? Yes please!
Dinner was pretty simple but very good! Chicken sausage, steamed sweet potato, steamed asparagus and a little more bread. I added a little fresh ground Italian seasoning to my asparagus for an added pop of flavor.
I also picked up a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Americone Dream – my favorite flavor!!! Jordan’s too! So you bet I had some dessert tonight!
Rest day was a success! I feel nourished, happy and peaceful! Now it’s time to sleep!
