Good morning and happy Friday!
J and I took a lovely 45 minute walk this morning before breakfast. I love that it is getting warmer in the Seattle area! My back is feeling great when I walk but I still cannot run. I facebooked about it a few nights back – basically I was feeling great and decided to try a nice slow jog outside. I wasn’t able to jog for more than a minute and I had to start walking; A lot of pain still when I jog. I am still really bummed about this and not to make things worse but my half marathon would have been tomorrow morning. =(
I am meeting with the doctor next week to go over my x-ray. Baby steps.
I had a sample box of granola from VegFest and it looked really good. MMmmm chocolate for breakfast is ALWAYS a good thing!
Sorry for the lack of posting this week. I just haven’t really been feeling the whole “blogging every day” thing. I have been a bit distracted – nothing serious, just life.
I did want to share some of my eats from yesterday, though. I know there are a lot of you that get inspiration from my eating.
Breakfast – Tofu Scramble
Dinner was a filling salad – red leaf and romain lettuce, sunflower seeds, onion, red bell pepper, EVOO, salt and pepper and some home made croutons.
Question for you all: I made hummus a few nights back and it doesn’t taste right. I followed the recipe exactly but it is very bitter tasting. I am thinking it’s the Tahini – I used raw Tahini. Should I use toasted TahiniDo you have any tips when you make hummus?? I mean don’t get me wrong, I will eat it up but it’s not that enjoyable. =(
Ron from NuNaturals, Inc contacted me a few weeks back asking if I would like to sample their products. I have heard great things about stevia in general but have never once tried it. Of course I was thrilled on the idea and said Yes! I was in complete shock when my order arrived – look at all of this product!
I was given these wonderful extracts to try:
Plus these large containers of baking blends:
A large box of packets and a packet of protein powder:
AND to top it all off, a HUGE supply of recipes to try!
I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to Ron and everyone at NuNaturals, inc! I will be cooking and tasting for weeks to come! Have you tried NuNaturals products or stevia in general? Do YOU have any tips or recipes you would like to share with me?
