And who knows what else is going to happen! I have loved every moment of blogging, and I can’t imagine stopping doing it. That’s why I’m celebrating with a HUGE GIVEAWAY! Wanna know what you can win? Read through to the end of the post!
That’s right, you have to suffer through what I ate today first. Actually, I ate delicious food, so it shouldn’t be too bad! I’ll make it snappy.
After a lovely run and interval session, I showered, robed, examined a crop of zits on my chin (the hell..???) and then made a breakfast bowl:
In the bowl: 1 juicy pear, four strawberries, about 1/4 cup kabocha and a Coconut Almond Butter Spice Sauce (almond buttah, shredded unsweetened coconut, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice). Oh yea, amazing!
Then, ya know, I went to work. I was pleasantly busy all the way until I had to make lunch. I made several firsts for me today:
What I’ve never done before this lunch: make rice in a rice cooker, use chipotles in adobo, make guacamole, fly by the seat of my pants when making lunch for others. It was fabulous! No, I’m not full of myself; I’m just proud! Look at zeese:
I can’t even believe I made guac. I’ve never played with avocados before, but I love how easily they scoop out! I mashed two avos with two roma tomatoes, one chipotle with adobo sauce, chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Delicious! I served it with a green salad, long brown rice, and a black bean-corn-roasted sweet potato chipotle salad. Heaven.
In the afternoon, I wrote stories and researched for a feature news story that I’ll pen for the website soon. After all the work, I came home hungry and wanting one thing:
Okay, gotta cut me some slack. I had zilch produce: romaine, last of my cucumber, last of my carrots, pan-seared tofu (just cooking spray today) and TJ’s bomb Peanut Ginger whatevuh dressing! After dinner I had 12 pounds of Stacy’s pita chips with Sabra’s roasted garlic hummus. Clearly, I’m back to my SnackFace ways! Told ya 😉
