peanut butter & jelly time

Sorry for no post yesterday!  It was super late by the time we arrived home from Maine and all I wanted to do was jump in my bed. 🙂  I want my hour back!

I started the day yesterday with an 8 mile run.  I only have one week to go until my Half Marathon, so I wanted to take it a little easier on my long run yesterday.  I ended up completing 8 miles in the pouring rain and wind!  It was cold and miserable, but I felt better once it was out of the way.

I was WET and COLD!

I am going to take it easy this week and stay away from weights.  I will do a few easy runs and some yoga to stretch me out!

After my run, we chowed down on some breakfast.  I had some greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey, granola and an english muffin with just a little peanut butter.  I was famished!

For lunch, we made a stop at this incredible lunch spot.  It was incredible to me because it was called Peanut Butter and Jelly Time!

I was pretty much in heaven!  You could basically get anything that you want.

I opted for Raspberry sugar free jam and homemade Cinnamon PB on toasted multi-grain – YUM!

Brant opted for a Triple-Decker with jelly, PB and FLUFF!  Check this thing out!

I also ordered a House Chai from the coffee and tea shop next door.

They sweeten their chai with honey and figs.  How cool.

My sandwich and tea were so delicious!  If you are in Portland, definitely check out Portland Market and hit up these 2 hot spots.

I enjoyed every bite.

It was such a gross day, so we just hung out the rest of the afternoon.  Before we hit the road, we enjoyed some afternoon tea.

I am in love with Rebecca’s teapot!

Then, we ventured out into the storm for our trek home.  On our way, we stopped at Whole Foods for some fuel.  I filled my take away container and of course, finished it all.  In my mix: Kale and avocado salad, red quinoa and black beans, marinated cucumbers, carrot and rice slaw, quinoa patty and guac and a few homemade tortilla chips.

I am normally dissapointed when I get take out from Whole Foods because everything always looks so much better than it tastes!  But, tonight was different.  I loved everything.  The highlight was the Kale & Avocado salad – I will definitely be recreating this.

We had such a wonderful weekend with friends!  Thank you Rebecca and Steve for being such tremendous hosts!

  2. Peanut Butter and Jelly Time looks like the cutest restaurant. In August (or earlier!) we are going back and I’m having that Aztec mocha that is on the chalkboard!
