Workout – check.
Grocery shopping – check.
Lunch – check.
Just after blogging we biked to the gym and back with 40 minutes of ellipticalling in-between. Short and efficient.
We continued the bike ride to Harris Teeter for some fresh goodies. Collards, chard, green beans, raspberries, bananas, mango, tofu, apple, cuc, spinach, watermelon, peach, 4 kinds of beans, cherries, and more.
Which turned into Pina Colada Salad
Ever since I bought a head of green cabbage last week I’ve been thinking about a pineapple black bean salad/slaw. Fresh pineapples were too expensive today ($5) so I went with canned, which ended up being good for the juice.
For two heaping salads toss together:
- 1/3 head green cabbage, chopped
- 1/3 cup chopped English cucumber
- 1/4 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 a jalapeno, chopped
- 1 can pineapple juice, drained with juice reserved
- 1 can black beans, drained
- Dressing: 2 tbsp coconut milk, 2 tbsp pineapple juice, pinch kosher salt, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp sriratcha
- Garnish: lots of coconut
On the side I had toast with butter
For a sweet ending I tried my first adora calcium chocolate, which is packed with 500 mg of calcium! What a delicious way to get your nutrients. Loved it. Don’t think I’d eat these everyday due to the cost, but I will definitely invest in some for an after-meal boost of calcium.
I also got the word that you can get an online discount by entering the code “afriend” at checkout at the Adora Online Store for $4 off.
My poor thumb/tendonitis is majorly flaring up again. I’m wearing Matt’s wrist brace from earlier this year. I think it is caused by too much typing and worsened by yoga. Lately EVERYTHING has been bothering it (even housework). Guess this cruise will be time for it to heal as I take a break from real life 😉
BALTIMORE readers – I’m going to be spending a speedy quick night there before the cruise. We’re getting in too late for a dinner, but I was wondering if anyone wanted to go running on Sunday morning before we get on the boat?? Email me if so: [email protected].
