Fun evening with my friend Lauri! She’s up from Columbia, SC for the R.D. review course and spending the night to save herself a long drive. We made a girls’ night out of it
Once back at home (after a looooong afternoon of foodservice management and learning theory review) we unwound for a few before heading back out because we had a house showing!
I snacked on a mini apple and a Vega Vibrancy bar while in class. I LOVE these bars!!! I thought the flavor was a bit funky at first, but now I am in love with them. The texture – with chia seeds and almonds – is just amazingly crunchy. And they are chewy like dates. They are packed with nutrients, protein, fiber and are low in sugar. My favorite as of late! This one is a sample the company sent me a while back, but you can buy them online. They are pricey though!
We had some time to kill before dinner and weren’t quite hungry so we went to the Greenway for a walk!
We walked for about 40 minutes – I don’t think my legs were quite ready to be back on the Greenway!! I could still feel that run pretty deep and were glad when we got back to the car.
It was past 6 when we got back (one good thing about DST!) and we headed out for dinner at Dean + Deluca!
I feasted on this amazing salad!
Spinach, mixed greens, broc, cucs, mushrooms, sprouts, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes (AMAZING), chickpeas, goat cheese, kalamata olives and sesame dressing.
I ate about 3/4 of it and saved the rest for lunch tomorrow, which I’m already excited about!
Plus a Pellegrino!
By saving some of my salad for lunch, I also saved room for dessert!! TASTY-YO!!
But to our utter sadness, it was CLOSED!!!
So we came back home and made the most delicious banana soft serve sundaes imaginable!!
Bananas (frozen) about 2.5 of them – into the food processor. (It only works with a FP, I think)
5 minutes of whirring around – and some scraping of the sides – ice cream is born!
Lauri brought over a peanut butter that I had YET to try…..
And we melted it in the microwave a bit….heavenly! Like a liquid Resee’s cup!
Poured overtop with a few cacao nibs
Highlight of my day.
In other blended news, Rush Bowls are now available online here!
There are still Pilar Totes available
A no-so-highlight of my day? The fact that our INTERNET is OUT again!! What the heck is AT&T doing updating the server systems during the evening!?! When I called to troubleshoot I got a message that that’s what they were doing. SO NOT COOL! Thankfully I was able to get on a faint signal from a neighbor. THANK YOU NEIGHBOR!! Hoping this post goes up ok…
Tomorrow is Day II of Jean Inman class. Today was all the boring foodservice stuff – tomorrow is all nutrition! I’m planning to work out in the afternoon with Emily, so I get to sleep in a bit again tomorrow. And make Lauri oatmeal!
