Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I wasn’t able to spend it with family, but I hope they know they were in my thoughts. I would have loved to watch all my nephews and niece hunting for Easter eggs.
Last week was a bit of a whirlwind. I was exhausted come Thursday, and not really in the mood to cook so we had a few meals out.
I also ended up with some kind of food poisoning/Crohn’s flare/the plague illness that hit me Friday night, and I spent most of the weekend in bed or in the bathroom. I need a redo!
I used up my farmer’s market goods by having lots of salads and wraps for lunch.
I had this new breakfast one morning.
Greek yogurt, granola, brown rice crisp cereal, banana, and hemp seeds.
I also packed my lunch most days. This one had a side salad with greens, blue cheese, dried cherries, and hazelnuts with olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing on the side, hummus + crackers, grapes and a Kind Bar for snackie.
For dinner one night, we made black bean and sweet potato tacos. I roasted the sweet potatoes in cumin, chili powder, paprika and salt, then mixed them with canned black beans. But tacos are all about the toppings, imo. This one had arugula, pico, sharp cheddar, cilantro and lime.
Another dinner was this beef and broccoli stir fry. The sauce was a hodge podge of ingredients including toasted sesame oil, tamari, mirin, brown sugar, and sriracha. Danny said we should have this weekly.
And here’s the plan for this week.
I planned our meals from Ellie Krieger’s Weeknight Wonders cookbook. Sometimes I like wingin’ it when it comes to dinner, but sometimes I love just going through a cookbook and planning all our meals from it. I especially love this one because all the recipes are under 30 minutes (and that includes prepping and chopping). Here are the recipes I picked:
Sweet Potato and Edamame Hash and Eggs (had this tonight, yum!)
Taco Pizzas with Romaine Salad
Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon with Endive and Green Apple
Penne with Grape Tomatoes, Spinach and Toasted Garlic
I missed my long run last week due to being sick so I’m definitely planning on getting it in this week.
Tuesday: Easy Run ~ 4 miles
Wednesday: Strength + 20 minute cardio
Thursday: Run Intervals
Saturday: Long Run ~ 6 miles
Planning for a healthier and more active week this week! I better get to bed. I’ve got an early morning clinicals tomorrow and Wednesday.
