Let the weekend begin!!
Before yoga I ran to get air in my tires and to the farmer’s market! There’s one uptown that’s open on Tuesdays and Fridays. It’s a really nice atmosphere with lots of product, but not all of it is local or organic. I came home with mostly local stuff (I only picked it up if it said North or South Carolina on the box) and a few unknowns (the bell pepper for $.99). I really wish I had a fun, reliable, organic market I could go to on a regular basis. There’s nothing even remotely close to my house 🙁 It seems that the Charlotte Regional Farmer’s Market is probably my best bet. It’s not a fun atmosphere (you have to take a highway to get there and it’s in warehouse buildings) but all the local organic farms are there.
Here’s my loot – all for $15. (This is after I ate half of the blackberries at lunch!)
I met Kelsey at 11 and we did a short, hot sidewalk walk before class – about 30 minutes. I forgot sunscreen on my shoulders and face and was not liking the sun at all.
Yoga was awesome. Still lovin’ hot yoga. I was drenched and shaking at the end. It was only an hour-long class, but I felt just as tired as the others. I think you pack more in in an hour so it’s about the same strenuous wise.
Yoga was over at 1:15 and I raced the loooong 25 minute drive back to my house. I was pretty hungry and needed to shower and had 2 calls coming up fast.
I planned out a lunch in my head, but plans were changed when I found Matt had brought me home a homemade Great Harvest staff slice of pizza –
It was sooooooo good!! Not even sure what was on it.
Served with a bowl of these
Popped into my mouth Homer Simpson-style. Gnomp. Gnomp. Gnomp.
And a glass of green juice. I was craving something liquid and refreshing (plan I had been a smoothie but plan II with pizza turned it into a simple juice)
I could NOT finish thisIt was not good in taste despite my craving for a green refreshment.
My body has been weirdly rumbling ever since finishing this lunch. Not sure if it is yoga-sweat related or ingredient related…. strange…
When I was in Kenya at the Lipton Tea Estate, a team from National Geographic was also there filming and photographing the estate. Their footage is now available!! Along with this extension of their site. This video makes me tear up to think that I was standing just a few feet away during some of this footage. I rode in that safari vehicle, I recognize sites such as the small holder farm, and I hung out with Boyd, Richard and Marc. I can almost smell the tea when I see the shots of the factory! Hope you enjoy the beautiful sights!
It’s been so long since this lunch and I’ve been busy with calls and emails that I’m ready for a snack! Off to hunt one down in a bit.
See ya for dinner. Friday dance!!
