Summer Veggie Dinner with the Parents!

It’s a really good thing that I get everything ready the night before (coffee chilling in fridge, lunch packed, clothes picked out, backpack packed, breakfast tools on counter, etc) because I hate getting out of bed. I stay in bed until the last possible second.

This morning I had a major headache and my body felt really sore. I attribute the headache to the fact that I didn’t have any caffeine yesterday…and the soreness? I guess that’s from the fact that I didn’t fully recover from Bootcamp and still ran last night? Why do I have the hips of an 80-year old? An 80-year old arthritis and bursitis to be specific? I am not dramatic. I think today will be a rest day. The end.

 

Iced coffee (Safeway Kona Coffee mixed with Target’s Archer Farms Cinnamon and Vanilla Nut Coffee) with unsweetened almond milk and a PB and J on Oatnut bread! ON THE GO!

Around 11:30 I made a second iced coffee with hazelnut coconut creamer!

I also ate some almonds since foca and I weren’t eating until around 12:30.

There were so many different leftovers involved in today’s lunch.

Fresh tomato, baby spinach, cabbage curry leftover, and kabob leftovers.

I think I may have given myself food poisoning. Oops…

I snacked on some dried apples…

Then I filled every square of my last pretzel with chocolate.

OH YES, I WENT THERE!

I helped with the veggies. Sautéed spinach and mushrooms with toasted pine nuts and a little lemon juice and lemon zest! I also sautéed a squash from my parents garden, a zucchini and an onion! FRESHHHH!

When I walked in the door, mom was already making brown rice! It takes a while to cook, but it was so worth it!
