So, I’m looking back over the food I ate today and it’s SUPER random. Don’t hate–just one of those days I guess!
This morning I went to an awesome spinning class. It was so funny–the instructor was this super cute pregnant woman and instead of being on the bike, she roamed around the room the whole time, shouting and encouraging us while blasting truly amazing music. I’m convinced the secret to spinning is music, no?! 🙂
When I got home, I tried take 2 on protein ice cream.
Unfortunately, it was more of a backfire than I anticipated. I used waaaay too much ice and therefore it was more like a flavorless shaved ice than anything else. I ate it anyway though and then I was super cold and stood under a hot shower for 20 minutes to defrost. Oh well. Note to self: next time don’t add entire tray of ice creams.
Lunch was a big salad with 2 chopped soy hot dogs and a light babybel cheese topped with hummus and hot sauce with kabocha (!!!) and an orange on the side.
I’ve determined that kabocha squash expands in my belly like none other and I was too full to finish my orange at the end of my meal! Rarely do I not clean my plate so that’s sayin’ something right there.
This afternoon I ran errands and lusted after MacBook Pros at the apple store. I know I need a new laptop but can’t decide to get a new MacBook or upgrade to a MacBook Pro. I’m definitely a mac kind of girl…no PCs allowed in this house. Thoughts?
Snack was an unpictured Pure Bar…I figure y’all have seen them all before. 😉
And dinner was pretty random, too….but surprisingly incredibly delicious!
I’m here to tell you tonight that there are three things that can go on anything: hummus, almond butter and hot sauce. Just don’t combine the three together. 😉 This would be an omelet with 3 egg whites, 1 yolk smothered in hummus and hot sauce with MORE squash. Yes, more. It was literally calling my name from the fridge and I had to eat it. I think I’m addicted. Especially when it’s cold!!! Anyways, hummus on eggs is delicious if you’ve never tried it.
And then I ate a pear with almond butter and chocolate chips. Again, almond butter goes on anything. Done and done.
Let me introduce y’all to the Michel-Schlumberger 2009 Holiday Catalog!
I’ve received countless emails from you guys, asking for my wine advice or what I recommend. Well, here you go! By ordering from our catalog, you can get a taste of what I taste daily here in Healdsburg. All the items in the catalog are extremely discounted AND you will receive free shipping as well on anything you order. We don’t distribute very heavily so this is an easy and convenient way to enjoy our wines.
We produce world class, organic wine here at Michel-Schlumberger and are best known for our big, bold Cabernets. Ten percent of the proceeds from catalog sales go to the Healdsburg Education Foundation, supporting vital programs in our local public schools. If you are ever in the winery, we also donate half of the sales from tours and tastings to the same foundation because we feel so strongly about it.
What are my favorites?
Everything! I’m more of a red wine girl and I just loooooove our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Deux Terres and Pinot Noir. If you like Pinots, ours is really special because we are actually the only Pinot Noir producer in all of Dry Creek Valley here. It’s what I love to give to guests to wow them because you can really taste the terroir (earth, sun, wind, rain…) in the wine and it’s very unique and complex. The Pinot Blanc is a SUPER light white wine and perfect for those interested in diving into wine but a little scared. It’s really light and easy to drink….I always recommend it to wine newbies. 😉
We’ve set up a special promo code especially for you guys on the site, so when you order, type in Jenna in the tab for special offers when you check-out.
Bad news is we can’t ship to Kentucky, Maryland, Tennessee, Utah, Massachusetts or King of Prussia, PA (don’t ask).
