A little of this, a little of that

How is everyone’s weekend going?

I started the day with my daily cup of decaf coffee and a lovely GM.

  • cup of almond milk
  • 3 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • a few handfuls of frozen fruit – grapes, strawberries and peaches

I forgot how much I love the flavor of adding almond butter to my GM’s. A little extra punch of healthy fat to keep me full.

Lunch was mouthwatering, to say the least.

I made another batch of Cashew Spread with oregano, basil and red pepper flakes. I seriously cannot get enough of this spread! The spices I used made the spread taste very “pizza” like.

I spread a thin coating of Earth Balance on two pieces of sprouted bread and grilled them in a pan. On each slice of warm bread I spread the Cashew Spread, added sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, red bell pepper, red onion and avocado. With one bite I knew it needed a side of marinara sauce for dipping. Pizza in a sandwich? Oh Yea!


I also went on a nice run this afternoon – 4 miles. Funny thing is I don’t feel as powerful or confident about my running as I did last week. Could be stress, weather, food… I find myself getting discouraged that I am not improving more quickly. =(

Dinner was re-heated Chinese take-out from a few nights ago.


Kung Pow Tofu, extra spicy, on a bed of brown rice.


I have a weakness for take out once every few months. Not the cleanest of foods but once in a while I have to splurge!


I promised I would post my embroidered towels once they were finished – I think they turned out great!

I also dabbled in some pillow making. This is one that I simply appliquéd on fabric scraps, then embroidered around the edges to give it a “finished” look.


That’s all for now – enjoy your Sunday!
