I had a juicy breakfast this morning of cantaloupe balls , raspberries and a peach in about 1/2 a cup of greek yogurt . On top I crumbled a blueberry vanilla granola plank (still my favorite flavor!) and added some raw oats for chew (yes, you can eat them plain).
After breakfast we headed over to Karen’s for a workout. The husband and I did a quick 25 minute running loop in her neighborhood and then headed into the air conditioned gym where I did another 20 minutes on the ET and a circuit of weight machines . I really think nothing cures a hangover (even if mine was mild today) better than a workout – something about sweating out the toxins….
For lunch, we made turkey sandwiches and pressed them in Karen’s George Foreman. Mine was: 2 slices mesquite turkey , 1 slice muenster cheese , a small spread of avocado , mustard and romaine lettuce all on Ezekiel Sesame bread. The mesquite turkey (don’t know the brand) was GREAT. Made it all taste like a BLT without the bacon.
On the side I had carrots + celery dipped in about 2 tbsp homemade hummus
Along with some cantaloupe and iced tea -
Snaggin’ A Spot
On the way home we stopped by the symphony spot to set out our blanket for tonight. I used to think this was obnoxious but now it’s just the thing to do. Look at all the blankets out by lunchtime for an 8pm concert!! There was not a free patch of grass left, but we found a small triangle way in the back. Next weekend we’ll have to go even earlier!

I have 3 hours to get my act together before I have zero time during the week and I’ve got TONS to do. Luckily the husband is already hard at work in the kitchen so if we work together we might be able to get it all done:
- Make pasta salad for tonight
- Make fruit salad
- Pack picnic
- Cook lentils for the week
- Pack lunches for Mon + Tues
- Assemble grab bags of veggies for the week
- Cook banana rolled oat oatmeal in advance for busy mornings (my first time – I’ll let you know how it turns out)
- Prep for 2 chem labs (read, answer> questions, etc.)
