Sorry for the belated post but hope your Friday morning is going well. 🙂 Here’s a recap of my eats!
Yesterday I had a snack a la Fitnessista!
A piece of millet toast with coconut butter, maca and cinnamon. I liked it but didn’t like how the maca and cinnamon pretty much went up my nose as I ate it. Too powdery! I think my favorite combo is still coconut butter and raspberry jam. This definitely held me over for a few hours though until I met a friend at Barndiva for dinner! Barndiva is actually right around the corner from my house and I’ve always wanted to go but never have been. So glad I finally went because it just might be my new favorite restaurant…the food was out of this world!!!
I had an endive salad with goat cheese, heirloom beets and candied walnuts to start—
SO GOOD!!!!!! Oh man, the little goat cheese croquettes were over the top. I could have probably eaten a whole plate full. They literally melted in your mouth!!
And then for my entree, I had the special, which was scallops. I pretty much order scallops whenever I see them on any menu but my favorite will always be the yummy scallop dish my mama makes at home (mom, can you make this next week for me? Please?!)
Again, so good. I couldn’t really figure out what was underneath but I think it was some sort of extra creamy polenta. Mmmmmm
I also had some delicious vino, of course :). This morning called for cold cereal.
All my favorites: ezekiel cinnamon raisin, cinnamon puffins and nature’s path granola with a banana and almond milk. What is it about cereal that makes it so we could literally eat boxes and boxes during one sitting?! I swear I am a bottomless pit with the stuff and almost always go back for seconds.
Thanks so much for your supportive comments about my knee!!!! Y’all, it HURTS! I couldn’t go to yoga this morning because there’s just no way I can sit in any sort of deep squat right now…and then I thought about trying to go out for a run but I actually think I’m just going to take a total rest day. Now that I think about it, I’ve been exercising pretty intensely every day for the past week and a half without any rest. Our body NEEDS recovery, especially when we are training. So often I think we forget how crucial rest is (I know I do!). Without it we are basically just wearing ourselves into the ground.
So, instead, I think I’m going to go head to my “office” (aka Barnes and Noble) and get some writing done. Maybe take a walk later if its still sunny. 🙂
See you in a bit!
