Modge Podge

It’s Friday! Another BEAUTIFUL day here in Seattle – I swear it looks like it should be 80 degrees outside! I am here wearing my capris, a tank top and some sandals.

Speaking of sandals, these are my most favorite pair of sandals EVER!


They are made by Ecodragon and I have owned several pairs. The have a 100% vegetable fiber sole and 100% hemp canvas top. They are so comfortable! I’m actually in need of a new pair, or two. I’ve had these for over 5 years. Whenever I go the the Seattle Hemp Fest, Ecodrago has an amazing sale – like 2 for 40$! Looks like I will have to wait until August =)

Another green monster for breakfast – I have been drinking these like crazy! BUT they are just so darn good!


The norm – almond milk, frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries, melon), flax meal, half of a banana and spinach.

At first, GM’s never kept me full. I must be getting used to them because I can go all morning on them, now. Strange…..

Look what came in the mail!!!



It’s charging right now but as soon as it’s done I am going to start playing with it! =)


It looks huge on my tiny wrist, though. =)

I don’t know if I will be using it this weekend or not. After last Saturday’s long 8 mile run (my longest to date) my legs have been crapping out on me. They feel tired and weak. =( I have been ramping up my training because of my half marathon on April 17th but I think I have been pushing myself too hard and not enough rest.

Today is my normal rest day but I might take an extra day, or two, to give my legs a break. The last thing I want to do is injure myself. I did, however, run a 8:13 minute mile last night! Last night was my speed night and I was pretty proud of that time! I was grunting and huffing towards the end but it was a good feeling. =)

Ok, and just because I haven’t posted a picture in a while….



He has just passed the 18 month mark! I cannot believe it!

I made something special for lunch today.


I found a recipe for an amazing sounding salad dressing on NicolesNutrition blog and I knew I had to try it! While I didn’t have all of the ingredients, I improvised and it turned out amazing!

  • 2 tablespoons red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic
  • 3 tablespoons dijon or stone ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup
  • salt and pepper taste


Whisk everything together in a bowl. Simple and tasty! I actually needed some lemon juice but I was totally out! It still tasted amazing but I will need to add it next time.


As far as mustard goes, I love this brand of stone ground mustard.


I had one of my Black Bean Burgers on top of a bed of romaine, topped with avocado, raw mushrooms, baby corn and dressing, along with some carrot and celery sticks with hummus and Mary’s Gone Crackers. Amazing lunch.


And I had this cookie (x2) that I made the other night.


I’m not sure what I am doing the rest of the day. I need to pick a few things up at the grocery store… or I might continue reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. I am loving this book and I highly recommend it! I am only 30 pages into it but I will be writing a review after I am done. Already it has opened my eyes even more than they were before.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. I'm stuck inside my Seattle office so I'm not totally disappointed it's still chilly outside. Tomorrow's supposed to be 67!!!!! Now that's sandal weather!I've read alllll the food books and watched Food Inc., but I don't think any of it has affected me like Eating Animals. I think I cried. I still eat chicken and rarely beef, but never pork and especially after reading. It's an amazing book.
