We have Great Harvest location meetings all day today, so it was another early run day.
[We're still looking for a location. You'd think finding one would be as simple as renting an apartment. You find one you like, in a neighborhood you like, for a price you like. You make an offer to nearly match their asking price. You assume it will come clean and tidy and that the landlord will be nice and fix things that break and that's that.
But it's really more like this: the landlord tells you the price is actually not what was advertised. That the location doesn't come with parking spots. That the bathroom plumbing is broken and you are expected to pay to fix it. That you have to start paying rent before you move in. That you must get your ex-boyfriend to sign the lease before he approves it. Yadda yadda.
These are all hypothetical, but it's a taste of what we've been going through trying to find the right spot AND coming to an agreement on terms. If we could JUST get past the location hunt we'd be 3-4 months from having a bakery!]
Anyways, we went RUNNING this morning. I wake up so stiff and headachy sometimes (I have GOT to learn to sleep on my back!) and the thought of running seems torturous. But experience tells me that I’ll be feeling great as soon as I’m out in the morning air. And experience is always right.
I felt great right away, but my stomach did not. I had 3 bites of banana and a tsp of peanut butter before we left (I was starving when I woke up) and that seemed to give me sharp pains throughout the whole 4.5 miles. It was not an ideal run, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
Onto breakfast – Buddhalicious
Another sample from Love Street Living Foods – Vanilla Cookie Crumble Cereal!
Ingredients: Coconut, Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Figs, Agave Nectar, Sea Salt, Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon, Ginger.
What a fun real food topping! I don’t think I’d eat it with just milk like cereal, but as a topping, it was delish. [Same deal applies from last night and runs through Monday now if you want a discount to order some samples]
