Stock Market

August 29, 2009

I woke up not very hungry this morning so I made a liquid breakfast that I could take with me on the road to the farmer’s market. But turns out I just ate it all here and am headed to the market as soon as I finish typing!

Into my smoothie I put 1 tbsp chia soaked in 1/2 a cup of milk for a few mins

Half of one of these Vega packets I got at the Summit

Plus a banana, 1/2 a cup of cottage cheese and a handful of ice.

On the side for chew, a small piece of Cinnamon Raisin Walnut with Barney Butter and the best Charlottesville jam

It wasn’t very filling, but that was my goal!

After breakfast I took stock of our pantry and fridge and came up with a rough meal plan for the week. I’ve got lots of shopping to do today – Farmer’s Market, Trader Joe’s, Target, Costco!

I am scurrying to the market and back now in time to meet Whit and Stacey for a run at the greenway!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

I was going to try my new chia seeds in a smoothie to today or tomorrow, glad you liked it! Sounds like a busy , but wonderful Saturday, I love farmers markets and TJ’s runs!

Yummy breakfast! I need to get my hands on some chia seeds!

Have fun with the girls later on your run!

The other week I tried on of those vega smoothie packs and thought I was going to through up! I had tried the berry flavor and was wondering what flavor you used in your smoothie today–maybe it’s just the berry flavor that isn’t so tasty?! Your toast also looks so yummy…nom nom nom.

Yikes; be sure you are well-fueled for your run! Enjoy shopping.


5 Teresa August 29, 2009 at 9:11 am

I saw you at the Farmer’s Market this morning (you were in line ahead of me at Grateful Growers) but I didn’t want to invade your privacy. Next time I will say hi. : )

TJs, Target, AND Farmer’s Market?! Have fun!!

By the way, just saw the good news on the last post – CONGRATS :)

All those things on the bread kind of make it look like a pizza!


8 kay (eating machine) August 29, 2009 at 9:14 am

Have a fun time grocery shopping! :)

you really have the best looking food pictures! (I had left a comment yesterday wondering about what oatmeal you get, but scratch that. I read your tribute to oatmeal page!) Thanks for all the great food ideas! You really inspire me too prepare food more!

Perfect start to a saturday! Yum breakfast, farmers market and a run! I’ve got the run bit done – it was glorious. But now I have to move house!! Eek. Should probably get to it…
Have a fabulous weekend!


13 Bec August 29, 2009 at 9:33 am

14 Evan Thomas August 29, 2009 at 9:39 am

The cinnamon raisin walnut bread looks awesome and grainy


15 Cait (Cait's Plate) August 29, 2009 at 9:42 am

That bread looks too delicious.

You just reminded me to try my Vega packet soon. I got one a while back and totally forgot!


16 Hallie (Healthy Twists) August 29, 2009 at 9:44 am

Have fun at the Farmer’s Market! I try to stay away from ours because I get into trouble…it’s so fun yet so expensive! I belong to a CSA so I get plenty of organic local produce that I’ve already paid for 😉


17 AnnQ August 29, 2009 at 9:45 am

That looks yummy! I’ve never had Chia Seeds….will have to give them a try!

I had a liquid breakfast too — chocolate protein powder, 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 tb of natural PB and a little Renew Life Fiber Smart. :-)
