I’m glad you enjoyed my “wine history” post. Tomorrow I will being our five day “Wine 101” class with a “lecture” on white wine. Hehe 😉 In all honesty though, what are some things you would like me to address during the next five days? I’m down for whatever–this should be fun!
This morning I had an AWESOME run. Short, sweet and to the point, I ran two miles at an 8:40 pace on the treadmill and it felt awesome. I had so much energy I could have cranked the speed up even more (must have been the extra sleep) but I didn’t want to re-injure myself so I kept it easy.
Afterwards I stretched and refueled with a half serving of EAS Myoplex.
I was sent this sample to review for the blog and even though its not something I normally drink, I agreed because I like to try new things! EAS Myoplex contains 25 grams of protein and is naturally and artificially flavored. Ingredients include a lot of things I can’t pronounce. Did it taste good? Yes! It tasted like liquid marshmallows—my sweet tooth was happy! 🙂 Would I buy it again? No. While this might work for some people, it tasted a bit too artificial for my tastes.
When I was in college I drank a TON of these protein drinks but I just feel like I’ve come pretty far in my understanding of nutrition and food in the past few years and I really just don’t like to put things in my body that are artificial and, err, fake. They taste good going down but they leave a bad aftertaste in my mouth that could only come from fake sugar. I’m VERY sensitive to sucralose (the third ingredient listed) and while this didn’t give me a migraine, I actually do have a dull headache right now that I can’t shake. However, Ryan LOVED this stuff so who am I to say! 😉
Not very long after I made lunch because I was starving!
This is a Morningstar farms black bean burger on Ezekiel bread with red onion, spinach, aged cheddar cheese and all natural ketchup. Aaaaamazing! On the side, I had sugar-free raspberry acai applesauce!
We laid out all afternoon by the pool and I skimmed through my “California Wine For Dummies” book (lol) in the sunshine. Snack was a half cup of whipped cottage cheese with organic canned pears and 2 tbsp MixMyGranola!
And then tonight was pizza night!!!!!! We picked up Greenwise pizza and it.was.awesome. Ryan and I both were in pizza heaven!
I got a small pizza with goat cheese and mixed veggies—heaven!
I polished off half….gotta save some for tomorrow! 😉 I loved the HUGE pillows of goat cheese!!!!
Dessert was two extra dark chocolate Le Petit Ecolier cookies. I adore these.
I’m in a food coma right now but it was worth it! 😉
Time for bed….gotta stock up on my zzzz’s this week!
