The last few daily eats posts have had some sort of theme, but I’ve got nothing for you this time! Just a normal, old day.
I started out the day with some green tea. Even though I just picked up a new coffee pot (I broke mine last week) I might be on a tea kick. I love the flavor of coffee, but when I had it the other day, I just didn’t feel as clean(?) as I do with tea. More experiments coming on this front.
Breakfast: needed to be light since it was 8am and I had a workout scheduled for 10:30 so I had a slice of sprouted bread (French Meadow) with one organic egg.
Workout: This was our second time doing the Lunch Crunch workouts by Open Sky Fitness and they are TOUGH! In a really good way. It is a quick-moving circuit of exercises and drills and an intense workout outside at the La Brea Tar Pits Park – I love it!
(I went a little darker with my hair, what do you think?)
Lunch: Greek Salad (cucumber + tomato + red onion + olives + goat feta cheese + olive oil +salt + pepper) with a side of Kale & White Bean Soup.
After my first course of soup and salad I decided I was still hungry so moved onto 1/2 sprouted tortilla + tuna salad (leftover from the Tasters lunch) + sprinkle of cheese + arugula – all baked in the oven. It was just ok.
Snack: Last night I re-stocked my dried fruit stash, so I snacked on some dried mango + pineapple for an afternoon snack.
Then I was hungry again (thanks to my light breakfast and hard workout) so I had a little wine, cheese and proscuitto!
Dinner: We haven’t found a good burger joint in our new neighborhood (haven’t even gone out for burgers since we moved here!) so we decided to try out The Counter. It is a build-your-own burger bar…which was much harder to do than I thought!
Ultimately I chose beef + pepperjack + tomato + fried onions + lettuce + pickles all on an english muffin. Oh, and a combination of regular and sweet potato fries hiding in the back. The burger was great, but I’m not sure how I feel about the whole “choosing your own” which is surprising, because normally I love that kind of stuff! Maybe I’ll be more adventurous next time.
Needless to say, it was a good burger.
The night was finished off with some of my favorite chocolate and relaxing with the Taster – perfection!
Enjoy your Thursday!
