So Easy My Sister Could Do It …maybe?

27 01 2009

The rest of my eats are probably not as exciting as Pumpkin French Toast Triangles…. but I try…

New * Run Fuel:
Sharkies!
1 BLOG 017
These guys are organic ( and I swore on the back they said vegan) and are supposed to be the same energy boost idea as all those other gummy endurance sport things. Isn’t it a cute little shark!?

They taste very much like gatorade- and they stick to your teeth but eventually dissolve. I tried two in the middle of my run and I didn’t get an immediate energy burst but I definitely would have kept going to 7 or 8 miles had two super SMELLY guys jumped on the empty treadmills right near me– Blech! I couldn’t stand their stench so I parted after mile 6.

For $0.88 cents a pack at Target- I think I will be up for trying these guys again but I have yet to try Cliff Shot Blocks among others either.

Post Run Lunch:

I took leftover lentils, chicken strips, and organic veggies and heated them up a little for some warmth

then added cool crisp salad greens, organic sprouts and some salsa on top.

I used to eat salsa by the jar but then I had some digestions problems in my esophagus ( not caused by the salsa but it was not good for it). 
I love my healed esophagus now and I really enjoy this black bean and corn salsa- all the ingredients make sense, no preservatives really just spices and veggies.

“The Future Dietician In Me”: added a big handful of these bad boys to round out my meal.

On to Dinner:
Inspired by my spectacular dinner on our getaway trip, I took fire roasted tomatoes, capers, olives, and mild pepperocini rings and let them marinate together today. Then, I added a good 3 tablespoons of smart balance and about 1/2 cup of pinot grigio.

I cooked boneless pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper on my foreman grill then tossed in the marinated veggies.

On the side I grilled asparagus spears on the foreman (with non stick spray) and made whole grain rice pilaf ( Rice a Roni Nautrals with no preservatives) and I added bits of laughing cow spreadable garlic cheese.

It was delicious and so Easy My Sister Could Do It… Right Christal! ? I mean its just opening up stuff and cooking according to directions – you could do that.  I thought it was funny because she emailed me about wanting to comment on my french toast this morning-she was having trouble commenting so  she emailed me that I better be making it for her this weekend! Haha- only if our grandpa has all the ingredients!

Update *

Body: 6 mile run, I paced the first 4 miles and then just did speedwork the last 2. I am happy I started speedwork because it took my attention off of the sweaty man stench ( for a little while anyway)

Mind:

Sent article out and finished pretty much all of my synopsis for it due Wednesday

Studied for terminolgy quiz

Worked on resume ( yah!) for potential job… now I need a cover letter

Picked up my chef coat!!! It is SO cute and we also had another package- Jeff’s title to his truck!

Checking on bank now- checked on one earlier.

Soul:
I am so happy I got everything in that I intended and expected ( and more!) to do today! Jeff and I had a lovely long chat after work it was so nice. I went to the one store that has chobani around these parts and bought 15 of them because they were on sale- I love that stuff! It is even cheaper than Trader Joes by $0.20 normally ( one single serving of chobani is $1.39, a tub of trader joes is 2 servings for $3… but I got it on sale for $1! Woohoo! I made a yummy dinner and now Pretty Woman is on!
