Today began with a banana and peanut butter before husband and I took off on a 5.4 mile run.
The weather was perfect - cool and crisp. I did pretty well keeping up on the run, but my joints were aching by the time we finished.
After a shower, I had some fresh and frozen fruit and an English muffin for breakfast. I learned about a new (expensive = high class) brand of frozen fruit from work (we might be working on their PR) called Europe's Best so I decided to see if it was all they said it is. Well, it was! I got the tropical mix of kiwi, pineapple, peaches, mango and cantaloupe. I let it defrost some and added some fresh raspberries. Yum! English muffin was topped with some blackberry-brandy preserves.
After a few episodes on the Food Network, we had to eat lunch earlier than we wanted to leave for the wedding at 1pm. I made the healthiest salad ever along with a size of Kashi 7-grain crackers.
- 1/2 cup each of Italian beans, sugar snap peas and corn blanched in hot water and put in an ice bath (on the bottom)
- Fresh cucumber and green pepper
- 1/2 oz walnuts
- Baby romaine
- 1 tbsp mixed dried fruit
- 1 tbsp pomegrante seeds
- 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato bean dip
- 1/4 cup leftover kidney beans
Another one of lunch together:
Now I'm off to have a yogurt before we head to the reception!
I'm hoping to photograph some of what I have at the wedding (if it works out) so expect at least a picture of the cake!
