Berry, Berry Hot

May 11, 2010

Hello! Happy Tuesday!

My mom and I headed out this morning to play a little tennis.  It was fun, but windy…I blame the wind for my loss! 🙂

When we got home, I headed out for a short run since I was already all sweaty and gross.  I covered 2.5 miles…and I totally thought I saw Jennifer Garner at the park!!!! Alas…it was not her.  Boo!  Plus, after I sprinted to catch up with her, I practically gave myself a heart attack in the heat!

Lunch was easy and fresh:

Mixed greens with carrots, sprouts, tomatoes, balsamic dressing, and pumpkin seeds:

And a thick, fluffy strawberry smoothie made with almond milk, vanilla protein powder, fresh strawberries, guar gum, and ice.  Yummy!

Plus a brownie for dessert:

Ryan and I are cooking a vegetarian dinner for my family tonight, so we need to decide what to make!! Any suggestions?

See you tonight!

    How about sweet potato or butternut squash and black bean burritos?

    Ahh, boo, too bad it wasn’t Mrs. Affleck 😉
    If you want to really impress them, I’d go with avocado rubbed kale as a side!

    Have fun with family dinner! What about those burritos/enchiladas you showcased recently?

    HAHA That’s probably the only thing that could get me to keep running…a possible celebrity sighting! lol

    Hmmmm some sort of veggie/tofu mix?

    Jennifer Garner is the cutest celebrity ever!!!!! In fact I think I’ll name my first daughter Violet.

    And besides that embarrassing admission – I’d like to recommend a great pasta dish. You can’t go wrong with pasta, throw some beans and veggies in and it’ll be delicious. I can’t think of a good recipe right now but everyone loves pasta right!

    100 cal organic brownie, where did you find that beauty?

    Indian food is always a good vegetarian choice, but you could also do an alfredo dish with seitan…cream sauce is always a hit! Your smoothie looks so thick and delicious!

    That smoothie looks amazing and refreshing!!! 🙂

    the smoothie looks so good.

    I think I’ll go buy some sprouts tomorrow… yours look too good…

    I need a smoothie tutorial. For whatever reason, everyone else’s look better than mine. The smoothie’s always greener…

    Lasagna?

    Lunch looks delicious! I love big salads and the smoothie must have been so so refreshing after your workout! I’d be chasing Jen Garner like it was my business! Can’t wait to see what you cook up!

      Hey Averie– I put it on another post, but it probably got lost in the shuffle! It’s a Nikon 5000– it was a gift! It’s a BIG purchase, but I love, love, love this camera. I’ve also heard that you can get them used on Amazon for much cheaper. Let me know if you have questions about it!

    Love the smoothie! I’ve never added guar gum to mine.
