It’s another beautiful day here which puts a big smile on my face! Wanna know what else makes me happy…
Smoothies! I know you probably don’t believe me but this was so good. Remember last night how I said spinach tastes good with anything; I really meant it. I put a chopped frozen banana, a packet of Amazing Grass, a scoop of pumpkin puree and some rice milk in the blender and pow- vitamin packed goodness with a GF pumpkin muffin on the side. Not a bad way to start the day. I’ll tell you what made it even better- a creative, active yoga practice that really got the prana flowing! Sometimes I love stepping onto my mat with no goal and no plan. Here’s a fun sequence to follow if you prefer a little guidance.
Now it’s time for some dancing house cleaning.
After sprucing things up a bit I made a turkey sandwich on a GF roll with more spinach, rice cheese and Dijon mustard, packed some baby carrots and a Luna cookie (it doesn’t say gluten, dairy or soy free but I didn’t see any dangerous ingredients listed so I guess we’ll just have to try it and see). I tossed this along with a big bottle of water in a backpack and headed out for a long trail run.
The weather couldn’t have been better and the scenery made the time fly by! I had to stop a bit to take it all in…
Aren’t weekends GREAT!
Later I had a pear and cup of green tea. I think pears might become my new apple 🙂
Tonight my husband and I went out for dinner. I was really hungry and was half way finished by the time I realized I hadn’t snapped a picture. You’re going to think I have an addiction when you hear what I ordered (in my defense it was one of the only safe items on the menu).
A giant spinach salad with red onion, olives, avocado, bacon and grilled chicken with a maple vinegarette. I promise to go easy on the spinach tomorrow! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
