I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to title a post “Eat What You Crave.” Because I do that a lot!
I ventured out this morning to head to the gym – and actually had a great workout. I was a chicken and drove instead of biked (hello, 22*) but considering the husband was biking 5 miles to the bakery in 18* in the dark at 4 this morning, I sure seem like a wimp! I had tons of energy today and did 26 mins each on the ET and Stepmill, followed by a round of upper body lifting (biceps, shoulders, deltoids, triceps, chest, some abs). Watching myself in the mirror, I can see that my arms are undoubtedly more toned from 2 months of regular yoga (mostly in the triceps and shoulders from all the down dogs!)
So on to the food that I was craving when I came down to make lunch at 12:30. I didn’t want a sandwich. Or hummus. Or tofu. Or anything cold. Or soup. Or yogurt. I almost made an egg to have over spinach, but then I thought about making salmon salad and bingo!
I did a variation of my traditional red curry salmon salad. Today I mixed half of this can of salmon (from Costco) with the following:
- 2-3 tsp Guilden’s Zesty mustard
- 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp red curry powder (ran out!)
- 1/2 tsp yellow curry powder
- Sprinkle cayenne
- Sprinkle Old Bay
- Pinch kosher salt
Then for the crunch, I sauteed a bunch of veggies
- 3 broccoli trees
- 3 giant button mushrooms
- 1/2 a carrot, minced
- 3 little peppers, minced
- A handful of grape tomatoes
Last but not least, I reheated some leftover quinoa and sprinkled it with some walnuts and Old Bay with a pile of feta in the middle.
Kelsey and I decided to wait out the roads for our afternoon/evening classes. She’ll be here in an hour to pick me up
