Up at the crack of dawn this morning (literally!) for a run. We ran our simple 4.2 mile loop through a nearby neighborhood and back. It’s bittersweet that my fitness has apparently improved because the same loop used to take me longer and I burned about 40 more calories according to heart rate than I do now. That’s great that I’ve improved, but a bummer that I have to run farther and harder these days to get the same burn!
While on the run I got a huuuuge whiff of toast toasting and decided I was in the mood for toast. Given that we have a bag of fresh bagels , bagel it was. Then I decided to be bold and have egg and cheese ! I never crave savory breakfasts so I rarely have them. I’m curious to see how my hunger turns out after this guy.
- 1 homemade bagel (which are about 2.5 oz each)
- 1 schmear pesto
- 1 egg, split
- 1 slice Kraft 2% cheddar, split
For a fruit and healthy fat component, I packed a banana and some nuts to have for a mid-morning snack. I’m finding with my schedule that I’m either hungry and/or bored of sterile classroom and air conditioning around 10:00 each morning, so I’m spacing out breakfast to accommodate.
With vitamin and big cup of ice water –
It’s an eating eay in Food Lab today – whole grains !!!!!!! We’re making a bunch of cool recipes – including buckwheat pancakes! I didn’t pack a lunch 🙂
