leftover monday

I hope you all enjoyed my healthy tip of the week this morning!  I actually love writing up these tips because it makes me think about them as well.  For example, I need to remember to stretch after my workouts!!  I seem to have good weeks and bad weeks with stretching – sometimes I do a lot of yoga and stretch after every run, other weeks I don’t stretch at all!!  So, my healthy tips are good for me too. 🙂

Remember when I posted a healthy tip about eating protein within 30-60 minutes after exercise?  Well, check out this article on recovery and some post-workout meal ideas – Post-Workout Meals!

It was tough to get up this morning!  Monday’s seem to do that to me.  As much as I plan a workout for a Monday morning, it never works out.  Which is why I always use Monday as a rest or cross train day, then I never feel guilty about sleeping in.

Anyways, on to breakfast!  I heated up the 2 leftover poppyseed pancakes from Saturday morning.

I could not let these guys go to waste because they were so good and packed with oatmeal and other good carbs.  I topped my pancakes with a spread of peanut butter, 1/2 sliced banana and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

It was just what I wanted this morning – perfect way to start a Monday!

Lunch was more leftovers!  Two Cannellini Patties on a bed of greens with yellow cherry tomatoes.  The patties were great served cold on top of a salad.  And, the yellow cherry tomatoes were so sweet!  I cannot decide which way I like them better, but I do know that I love these patties even though they are a little messy to work with…

I finished lunch with a Chobani Raspberry Greek Yogurt topped with homemade granola.  This is a new chobani flavor!  I haven’t seen it in any stores around here yet, but I love the flavor.  Thank you, Shari for sending me a few samples!  As I have said before, I prefer plain greek yogurt and the addition of my own toppings, but if you like flavored yogurts or need a sweet treat in a pinch, buy this flavor!!  So good!  The thing that I love about flavored greek yogurt over other yogurt is that they are not too sweet.  I love Fage and Oikos too (really, I love them all).

I snacked on a Jazz apple and a granola bar this afternoon to hold me over until my dinner date with Kate!

Kate and I made a delicious dinner!  We whipped up my favorite Wild Rice Waldorf Salad (see the recipe here).

Luckily, Kate loved it to!  I love girl’s night – a delicious meal, wine and chatting -what could be better?!
