Monday was a great day around these parts and kicked the week off on the right note. Starting with breakfast, of course.
Yogurt bowl and coffee. Always a great choice.
Shortly after breakfast I made my way out the door for some grocery shopping. I didn’t take any pictures of the load I brought home but I did take a few of my fridge. Just ’cause.
It’s not the best photo but whatever. Maybe I’ll conjure up a post about my fridge/pantry/etc. one of these days.
Once all my grocery goodies were put away in their place, I got started on lunch.
The combo of feta + wild rice & quinoa + balsamic is just out of this world. Really.
Then the turkey burger sneaks into the flavor combination and there are no words.
I seasoned my Jennie-O turkey burger with Emeril’s Southwest Spice.
By the way, if you don’t already own a rice cooker I highly recommend you change that. These babies makes cooking rice a breeze.
Mid-afternoon I took a snack break from studying for finals and had some fruit and granola. While grocery shopping, I picked up some more “indulgent” granola since I finished off the bag of Love Grown for breakfast. This one is Bare Fit’s Maple Pecan and I have to admit, Love Grown better watch out because this stuff is bomb.
The goal for yesterday’s run was 5 miles and I ended up exceeding that by a 1.3 miles so that was nice. Running has been my jam lately. Seriously it’s weirding me out considering I’ve opted for runs instead of hitting up a WOD at CrossFit. Can’t say that I’m complaining though, the weather just keeps calling me outside!
After my run I did some foam rolling while Sophie licked the saltiness from sweating off of me. Thank you for that Soph.
For dinner I had a crap ton of kale. Honestly, you would have been in awe if you saw the monstrosity before I wilted it down in some veggie broth. The pop chips ended up getting soggy since this was a “hot meal” so I think I’ll give them another go in a salad.
This dog is so cute sometimes I can hardly stand it. She got a bath last night, too, so she’s looking and smelling extra fresh.
This nearly empty jar of almond butter has been sitting in the cabinet for a while now just waiting for an opportunity to be polished off. Well, last night was the night. I melted in some dark chocolate and added Kashi for crunch. Perfect little dessert.
That sums up my Monday. I hope your week is coming along nicely!
