lunch and dinner

Boring title, huh?!

Thank goodness I got to step outside for a few at lunch today.  It was gorgeous out – 60° and sunny.

Lunch today was leftover Coconut Lentil Soup from last night.  I have tons of leftovers, so I will be eating it a few more times this week.  I also froze a serving to see how it holds up.  It was still pretty good, not mushy like I thought it would be!  It definitely doesn’t look appetizing though…

I paired the soup with a basic salad – arugula and herb mix, cucumbers, kaia sprouted sunflower seeds, pineapple and pear-infused vinegar.  I just wanted some greens to go along with the soup.  The pineapple was going to be separate, but I dumped it on there.  I love fruit in my salads, especially in the nice weather!

Filled me up.  The soup is a little more filling than I thought, I guess.

After work, I went on a nice looooooong run.  I was in the mood!  I haven’t run more than 6-7 miles for a few weeks (which, I know, is a lot!  But, I love distance running and sometimes a good long run does me and my mind some good).  My body has felt tired, but today it just felt like running.  I took it slow, breathed in the fresh air, people watched and just thought. 🙂  I needed some me time.  I covered 10 miles in 1:30.  Not too shabby.

Before my run, I snacked on a homemade granola bar.  Delicious, but so messy!  Lots of goodies in these bars – maybe that’s why they fall apart.

Once home, I made a simple dinner.

Salad with arugula, cucumbers, a Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger, walnuts, chickpeas, dried unsweetened apples, hummus and cheesy pitas.

Plenty of protein for after a long run.  I also drank lots and lots of water.

There is definitely some ice cream in my future tonight. 🙂
