I think my body is trying to tell me something. I slept over an hour past my alarm and now I have the very subtle tinges of a cold…Or a mild case of hypochondria.
Anyways, waking up at the time you are supposed to leave for work can put a damper on your morning routine. Ya think?
I had grand plans for soaking rice noodles and packing them with a nice serving of last night’s Red Curry Chicken…but instead I only had time to pour some curry (sans noodles) into a Pyrex and grab an apple.
With no time to fire up the Keurig, I decided to visit my old friend: the work place coffee machine. We actually had a falling out at the end of 2011 when I found some gnats in my green tea. I was gifted a Keurig in early 2012 and haven’t looked back since. Until today…
House blend with Truvia and powdered creamer (gnat free, I think). It wasn’t the worst thing, but I’m having iced coffee withdrawal.
Lunch was leftovers enjoyed with a generous application of sriracha sauce (happy face).
Goat milk yogurt, blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, scoop of sun warrior vanilla, shredded coconut, and a scoop of TJ’s Chunky PB with Flaxseeds.
Then I was off to complete a medium distance run for the day. 4.65 miles, almost ran over literal ‘sitting ducks’ on the harbor, and enjoyed the personal AC unit that this weather is providing.
In keeping with my June Challenges the only option for dinner was a salad. Is it still a salad if the main ingredient is cooked?
Roasted brussel sprouts, kale, beets, chickpeas, 1/2 red pepper, and more honey mustard goat dressing.
After I took this pic I stirred everything up and
dumped sprinkled nutritional yeast on top. Nutritional yeast (or nooch) is one of my favorite seasoning ingredients from my vegetarian days. It satisfies two awesome purposes. 1) Provides a mild cheesy flavor without the extra dairy and 2) provides complete protein vitamins when your meal happens to be lacking in that department.
It really is time for me to buckle down on my nutrition modules (and continue my progress on my Divine mint dark chocolate bar). Good night!
