I Put My New Shoes On And Suddenly Everything’s Right

Hello, Hello! In case you missed it, here’s my race recap from this morning. My unofficial time is 1:37:29 but I’m still waiting for their website to update. In the meanwhile, here are some photos my mom took at the finish line.

Like I mentioned, I showered up and headed home just for the day afterwards. Boy, was that exhausting! I really couldn’t help but make use of the grill while I was there.

Grilled Grass-Fed Burger, Brussels, And Corn

Grilled Grass-Fed Burger, Brussels, And Corn

Mmmm, tasty! The corn I didn’t really care for; sure, it’s a whole grain, but even with some grass-fed butter it’s pretty bland :-/ But I do love a good burger with salt and ketchup. I spent a good amount of time on the couch with Tivo, but managed a few moments in the kitchen, enough to whip up this for a snack:

Mystery Snack

Mystery Snack

Any guesses? It’s chocolatey, caloric, delicious, and contains no animal byproducts! I think I pretty much gave it away at that 😉 Expect a recipe to come(and to see much more because I took near the whole pan back with me).

Avocado Kale Salad With Salted Cashews, Parmesan Cauliflower

On the way back we stopped at Whole Foods where I was damn-near famished. I guess that was the post-run hunger hitting me. I took advantage of the salad bar and got Parmesan cauliflower and avocado rubbed kale salad with salted cashews. Yum! These are my two favorite things that Whole Foods makes that, try as I might, they just do it better.

The highlight of the day was getting new shoes!! 10 months and 1 day later, it was about time. The funny thing is is that these are the exact model as my old ones. I knew I liked the brand, and when I saw that these were $30 off, how could I pass them up?

Getting back to my dorm, I snacked on an apple unpacking. The shuffling around is always the worst part; but at least I don’t have to do laundry tomorrow 😀 Happy Monday to me. I could not wait for everything to be away and to have dinner.

Chickpea Salad With Raw Parsley Cheddar, Mulberries, And Hemp Oiled Greens

Chickpea Salad With Raw Parsley Cheddar, Mulberries, And Hemp Oiled Greens

I just needed something easy and raw, so I had a salad with chickpeas, Navitas Naturals Mulberries, Next Generation Dairy organic raw & probiotic parsley cheddar, and salad with Foods Alive hemp oil sweet & sassy dressing. The hardest part of this was knowing that I was going to eat it and taking the cheese out to breath an hour beforehand.

Do you get any magazine subscriptions? What are they and any horror stories? I get Food Network and Rachael Ray. I bought them both after Christmas with gift money because it’s much cheaper to get them by mail than at CVS, which I would have done anyway. I love my food magazines, but they’ve both tried to repeatedly bill me, and I just got a bill in the mail for Rachael Ray to charge me again. I’m sure I’m not the only one with troublesome subscription issues given the nature of the industry.
