simple foods

For lunch today, I was feeling a smoothie.  Luckily, I was headed home to walk the dog, so I got my wish!

(I warned you that my food would be boring!)

I know that you have seen this a million times on the blog, but I bring you:

A Green Monster Smoothie!

Made with some great stuff:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 cups frozen spinach
  • 2 tbsp hemp powder, vanilla spice
  • 1 scoop chocolate amazing grass
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup vanilla drinkable yogurt (Organic Valley)
  • 1 cup cold water

I just love these smoothies!

But, for lunch, I needed something salty and to chew on as well, so I had some homemade hummus (from Clean Food) and plantain chips (from Trader Joe’s!).

Once home from work, I decided to go on a run.  I ran my new favorite running route – around UMASS Boston.  It is a 5.5 mile route completely along the water.  On a gorgeous day like today, it was just what the doctor ordered.

I have taken about 2 weeks off of any serious running.  My body was tired and mentally I just needed a break.  I ran a few short, slow runs over the weekend, but really just wanted the time completely off.

Well, it made me realize why I love to run!  It is so freeing and exhilarating.  Even though that first mile might be tough, I feel awesome when I finish.  It is a great way to get outside and explore.  I hope 2 weeks didn’t completely kill my endurance though…I did not run nearly as fast today as I normally would have.  But, I’m ok with that!  I still completed 5.6 miles in 51 minutes.

I was on my own for dinner, so I felt like something quick and easy since it was nearly 8 o’clock when I got home.  Two scrambled eggs with toast and Brussels sprouts.

I scrambled my eggs with a little goat cheese – yum!

And, sauteed my Brussels sprouts in a little olive oil, salt, pepper and maple syrup.

Served with 2 slices (which is one serving) of Carrot Raisin Manna Bread.  This stuff is amazing!

I love dinners like this!  So simple and delicious.

Time. For. Sleep.

  1. For some reason your toast looks so much like pot roast (although I obviously know it never would be… hehe)!?! Love the pics from your run though!
