Veggies are Awesome

Hey Kids!

Well, it was a fabulously awesome and amazing day. I didn't do too much today but it was great to have the day off. I went to my parents house to spend some time with my mom, did laundry at home, spent some time with my best friend, cooked, and baked. Here are my meals:

Stuffed Zucchini (from my mom)


Fresh blackberries and strawberries



Frozen yogurt (tart original, tart pomegranate, mini chocolate chips, mini pb chips, 1 tbsp granola)



When I came home I continued to prep for the week. I like to make meals ahead of time for my guy as he is on his own for at least 2 nights a week and I also like to grab and go during the week.

I made lean beef with soba noodles and grilled onions and peppers in a sesame oil (for boy only- I don't eat red meat):


Sweet Potato Au Gratin (my healthy version of it):


Egg Salad:





For my own dinner, the star of the show was this new purchase- Archer Farms Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter spread. I honestly don't know where this has been my whole life, but I am in big, big trouble with this guy. Archer Farms is the Target brand and this stuff was amazing. I made sure to eat my veggies and then moved on to my main course- a granny smith apple and a flat out wrap with 1 tbsp of the spread (x2)!

This stuff has a very short ingredient list of peanuts, cocoa, and 2 or 3 other ingredients. I highly, highly recommend it and fear this may be the end of my blog!









I am ending my evening with some veggies- on my foot. Unfortunately the foot pain I had this morning did not go away. I thought it would be fine to do stationary bike at the gym but the outside of my foot was still in pain so I did 3 strength exercises and called it a day. I have had times in the past when I have not listened to my body and delayed my healing, but today I just let myself rest. I stopped by Fleet Feet on my way home and they told me that this was common and likely a sign of poor padding and overuse- I guess my distance increase was too much for my footsie. So here I am icing it with some veggies. I told you they were awesome!

See you tomorrow!
