I don’t know about you guys, but I’m super ready for Friday. Well, I’m always ready for Friday so that is nothing new. But I would really like it to hurry up and get here.
In other news, the weather is trying to spite me.
A few days ago I said something along the lines of “I’m sick of the cold, I’m going to be PISSED if it snows in March”.
Haha Mother Nature, you showed me. What I wouldn’t give for a nice weekend so I could actually get an outdoor run in. The treadmill is slowly beginning kill me, but it looks like we’re going to be friends for a little longer.
I guess it works out because genius me decided to go running today even though my upper calf/knee is still acting funky from this weekend’s long run, and now I’m living it up with an ice pack and tennis ball on my living room floor because the pain came back full force. This probably means I should take a break but I’m antsy and I want to give up and MOVE. I guess I’ll stick to low-impact cardio until things start getting better.
Don’t mind my argyle old man socks.
Now for the food.
On Monday I thought to myself “I’m actually going to take pictures of everything I eat tomorrow so I can do a real What I Ate Wednesday”. Guess how many pictures I took, zero. Whoopsies. That’s okay, my eats were not exciting at all (seriously I ate 3 apples and 2 bananas yesterday, creative cuisine is obviously my forte). So instead I thought I’d show you my dream day of food, because that’s way more interesting that what I would eat anyway.
Okay, this is what I eat for breakfast everyday anyway, yes that’s lame but it is my absolute favorite breakfast and I look forward to eating it every morning. But since I can have anything I want I would add this in too:
Mmmm… almond butter
Snacks are always necessary.
Green smoothie! I love smoothies but I rarely make them because I’m usually too lazy to get out/clean the blender. I should change that.
And because I’m ALWAYS cold and a huge temperature wimp…
I’d follow that smoothie up with my favorite coffee, Larry’s Beans St. Valentino’s blend. Black, please, because I drink coffee like an old man. Your creamer and sugar has no place here.
By the way, if they sell Larry’s Beans anywhere near you go out and buy some NOW. Seriously, get up from your computer, get to the store and get some. It is the best coffee I have EVER tasted. Seriously, I don’t play when it comes to good coffee.
I’d go to Coyote Kitchen and get the Moab boat (Coconut rice, black beans, sweet potatoes, blackened tempeh, fried plantains, roasted corn, and scallions, served with sweet red vegan mayo and cranberry salsa). So dang good. I think I will cry on graduation because it means I will no longer be in the same city as Coyote Kitchen, if you’ve ever eaten there then you know I’m not being dramatic. Okay maybe a little.
FROOOO YOOOOO. Of course Preferably peanut butter and coffee yogurts topped with lots of Reese’s, chocolate covered espresso beans, more peanut butter and dark chocolate. I think I just drooled a little.
Whole Foods hot bar! Because I’m indecisive and would like as many veggie options as possible. Bring on the salad!
Last, but certainly not least
Chocolate cake with coffee buttercream, um, how AMAZING does that look? You can thank Pinterest for this delicious food porn. We’re just going to pretend it’s gluten-free. Get. In. My. Belly.
So in summary, chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, veggies and more chocolate and coffee. Yup, sounds pretty accurate
What’s your dream day of food like?
Are you a fan of snow?
