No food theme yesterday, but plenty of “little luxuries” throughout the day. I guess it doesn’t take much! (?) I had the day off of work yesterday (for Shavuot) and while I wasn’t doing anything exciting, it was wonderful to have a day at home to catch up on things.

beverages: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2 out of my favorite mug.

breakfast: 1 cup 2% greek yogurt + 1/2 cup granola. Not packing all of my meals for the day is a luxury in itself.

workout: 30 minutes of jillian michael’s yoga meltdown (<<affiliate) through live streaming on amazon prime. We started doing yoga at lunch on Wednesdays at work, so I stuck with that theme. With the exception of the sun salutations, I’d say this is more yoga-inspired, than typical yoga, but it was a great workout nevertheless.

lunch: 4 oz tuna + 1 Tbsp mayonnaise + celery + onion + 1 slice of bread + 1 oz shredded cheese with carrots + celery + pickles. This is my standard “lunch at home” meal and it’s one of my favorites. Simple and tasty.

snack: Definitely my favorite part of the day, mainly because it felt like such a treat! I had a glass of wine + turkey slices + sartori bellavitano cheese while reading. I’ve been focusing on books lately so I was really behind in my LA Times (just the food/home section) + magazines. I took some time to read both books and magazines. It was great…obviously something I need to do more of!

dinner: It’s another Blue Apron week, which is always super exciting. The menu this week included chicken thighs (last night!), beet pasta and tonight’s Maple & Ginger Glazed Salmon with Watercress, Orange & Parsnip Salad. This meal was OUTSTANDING! The salad, the glaze…OMG. (Someone was pretty much licking the pan, but I’m not going to name any names.) We’re still loving Blue Apron, try it out!

    Having a glass of wine, cheese and grabbing a magazine while sitting outside might be my favorite thing ever!

    Wine and cheese in the afternoon sounds like the perfect snack to me :)

    I’m trying Blue Apron meals in a couple of weeks – can’t wait to see how it goes!

    All of your meals from Blue Apron have looked so delicious, I just might have to give it a try! Just to not have to go to the grocery store would be such a luxury not to mention being “forced” to try a bunch of new recipes!

    Mid-afternoon wine… yes, please :) I’m behind on my reading, too… not enough time in the day! What books have you been reading?

      Definitely not enough time in the day! (And especially for you, Ms Athlete!) Right now I’m reading “Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia” which sounds pretty morbid, but it is kind of fascinating. (Also, she lives in MPLS which always makes books more fun!)

    I did that JM workout the other day too, it’s one of my faves and such a good way to do something yoga-ish and also feel the burn! I need to give Blue Apron a try again soon, was definitely pleased with the first time around :)

    Wine, cheese, and reading? Sounds like I need to copy you.
