We had a minor disaster when the air conditioning stopped working but then Ryan came home from work and saved the day 🙂
This afternoon I snacked on a mini whole wheat flat out wrap with raw almond butter—
And made some beet, apple, celery and ginger juice—my favorite combo!
I got really full from my mini wrap though and only drank half the juice. I hate to waste it but really couldn’t get the rest down! It was extra beet-y today because I used a larger beet than usual. Should have added more celery!
I know so many people love these Flat Out wraps but I have to say, I’m not a huge fan at all. I really don’t like them! To me, they just scream “caramel color” because the color of the wrap is so brown and just using whole wheat flour in your dough is not going to produce that. To get a color like that, they have to use an artificial source. I decided I would rather have my almond butter on something more natural like a banana, carrots or an Ezekiel wrap. These are just so processed! I hate to waste food though so I’m going to finish them but I won’t be buying them again.
As for dinner, it was great!!! I tried a new Rachel Ray recipe out of “365: No Repeats” (LOVE this cookbook) for Spinach and Goat Cheese Chicken Rolls in a Pan Sauce. Here I am, cooking in our tiny apartment kitchen!
Please excuse my mess! 😉
I knew this recipe would be awesome because it combines goat cheese and spinach, two foods that I love. To only cook what we would be able to eat, I just bought two chicken cutlets at Whole Foods today. Ryan got the large one and I got a small one. Here’s the finished product:
Rachel lives true to her word—this recipe was incredible and only took 30 minutes! The reason I love Rachel Ray’s recipes so much is because they are so guy friendly! Ryan and I both always love her stuff and its easy to find a recipe we both agree on. The only problem is that most of her recipes revolve around chicken and there’s just so much chicken I can eat before going crazy!
Here’s my portion with roasted brussels—
Yummy goat cheese and spinach!
And here’s Ryan’s portion with, errrr, Annie’s mac & cheese—
What can I say? The man loves his macaroni.
I had a splash of Murphy-Goode cab to round out the meal. It was fabulous. 🙂
Oh! And a frozen blondie for dessert!
And peppermint tea 🙂
I’m off to take a relaxing bath with my new bath salts! Tomorrow is THURSDAY and that means hot yoga flow first thing!
