daily eats: 7.9.14

Oh, hello! Are you surviving the post- long-weekend week of work? My week has been busy (newsletter time at work) so I’m kind of ready for the weekend! You?

workout: 45 minutes walking on treadmill. I’m still really content with low-key exercise, so that’s what I’m doing! Lots of walking, 7-Minute and barre workouts. Every once in a while, I think about signing up for a race so I’ll start running again – and then I decide against it.

beverages: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2, per usual

breakfastblueberry bliss smoothie + a few kale cubes thrown in for good measure!

snacks: almonds + fresh fig. It was my first time trying a fresh fig and I’m still undecided on if I like them or not. The flavor was nice, but the texture was not my favorite.

yoga: 30 minutes of gentle yoga/stretching. One of my coworkers has been leading yoga every Wednesday over lunch and it is such a wonderful break in the day/week.

lunch: romaine + cucumber + kale (last minute addition) salad + my favorite cilantro dressing (trader joe’s!) with tuna + mayo + celery + onions. Lunch was supposed to be served with toasted pita and goat cheese, but the pita was moldy, so I turned it into a snack with crackers instead…

dinner: I went into dinner not having any clue what it would be because we were headed to house/dog sit. We found some burgers (with cheese) + sweet potato puffs + pickles + onions + ketchup. At least I had vegetables at lunch! (Check out instagram to see the cute pup we watch!)

thoughts: Of course I always try to include vegetables at dinner, but it doesn’t always happen. Life goes on! Also, these posts stop me from mindless snacking – Richie was snacking on chips and salsa before dinner but I didn’t want to deal with a picture so I didn’t have any. :)

    OMG, did your site get another makeover? I must know more details about this Trader Joe’s cilantro dressing please! There are very few bottled dressings that I actually like, so I’d love to try this one that you love so much ! I have been doing more weekly shopping at Trader Joe’s lately, so I am always excited to try new products. I have never actually tried a fresh fig either, I wonder what I would think? I am such a texture person, was it slimy? This may be my most unfocused, random comment ever…..

    No! Does it look different?! (I am ready for one though.) So the dressing is in the refrigerator section and it’s creamy, garlicky and actually pretty low in cal/fat. It’s called Cilantro Dressing!
    The texture of the fig was a bit mushy, I’m not sure if they are all like that but it was pretty fresh, so I would guess yes?

    What’s a sweet potato puff?! Sounds tasty! I’m ALWAYS ready for the weekend ;) Hope you had a good one!
