Writing, writing and more writing

My fingers were busy today!

I am on a mission but it is taking me longer than I thought. Oh well – so this is how I spent most of my morning. In front of the window, drinking coffee and typing away. It was a beautiful morning and ended up being a lovely day. I can’t tell you how much I love sunny fall days here in the Pacific Northwest!

I guess it was all that finger exercising and I soon became hungry. A Green Monster it was!

It was MUCH BETTER with a fresh peach!

  • almond milk
  • almond butter
  • spinach
  • a half of a fresh peach
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • a handful of frozen blueberries
  • and a scoop of amazing grass

I bought an entire case of frozen peaches about a month ago and froze most of them. I have a half of one left and I am very happy to buy fresh ones once again. I love fall and the end of summer but I miss my fresh fruit during the winter months.

I thought lunch was going to be on-the-go:

We were going to run to see Marc’s grandparents so I quickly made a salad in some tupperware.

  • Organic spring mix and romain
  • heirloom tomatoe
  • avocado
  • quinoa
  • feta
  • chicken
  • s & p
  • basil
  • a drizzle of raspberry vinaigrette and EVOO

Shake, shake, shake – it was a very tasty and convenient! Well we ended up not traveling anywhere but I still had a great lunch. πŸ™‚
As you can see, I eat a lot of salads. I adore salads! My middle name should be Salad! Just kidding. πŸ˜‰
I love salads because the possibilities are endless! Lettuce is my canvas and I am the painter. I enjoy creating new creations with different veggies, fruit, grains and mixing them into one giant bowl of goodness! I have always had a love for salads but my toppings were never as healthy as they are now. Loaded with cheese, meats, heavy salad dressings (RANCH!) and just regular ice burg lettuce – I think I have graduated from those days.
What is your favorite salad or salad ingredient?

I had an early dinner tonight. I planned on going to the gym after Baby J went down at 7 so I had a fun and light dinner. Half of a Honey crisp apple, almond butter, vanilla Chobani yogurt, a few peach slices and granola – yum!

I can really feel my leg endurance improve as I am running longer and at a higher speed now. Tonight I ran between 10 and 11 minute miles for 45 minutes. Not completely straight but pretty close! It really is a mind game – I just have to tell myself I can do it!

Remember this movie?

I haven’t seen this movie in years and I am suddenly glued to the tv screen! ha It reminds me of being in middle school. I thought Christina Ricci was soooo pretty – well she still is but I totally wanted to be her after I saw this movie! πŸ™‚

Hopefully I can finish my other blog post tonight! See you in the morning!

  1. Maria – I heave heard great things about the magic bullet! I would love to make fresh salsa with it!Maggie – Fruit in salads = awesome! It's nice to incorporate some sweet with your savory πŸ™‚ – kobacha, still need to try this!Lesly – RANCH! If it wasn't so bad for me I would eat it on everything! PS – I still have to have a little with my fries, when I eat fries. Hello RedRobin!Cindy – I too am a soup/stew girl in the winter. I love my crock pot and it's always on the kitchen counter.

  2. I love salads…but it's a total summer thing…I love avo and corn off the cobb (raw) and every thing else on the planet (or what I have in the fridge)so when it cools down, I trade my salads for home made veggie soups!so now I am a soup girl!I LOVED Casper too!

  3. Hehe, your green monster is not green!Fave salad ingredient – no idea. I love adding fruit (apples!), and I like to do warm salads where I stir fry veggies and dump them over lettuce. Steamed kabocha and parm are probably my top two ingredients though.

  4. Wow. Your GM looks really yummy! πŸ™‚ I bet it tasted even better. I swear when I get my Magic Bullet for christmas (I hope!) I'm going to be unstoppable!
