Here’s my creative recreation of my afternoon snack: a lemon Larabar! A mini one picked up from a race a long time ago. I love Larabars but lately ALL afternoon snacks have been making my stomach feel weird. I don’t know if I’m going too long without eating (although I don’t really want to eat in the last few hours of work nor do I feel hungry and i’m drinking enough water) or what, but all I want each afternoon is a cool, glucose-filled drink.
Emily and I made last-minute plans to run this afternoon. I was planning to go tomorrow AM and she was going to run alone –> re-group!!
We ran a very pleasant summery 5 miles. But my stomach was not so pleasant! I CANNOT run well in the afternoons!! I’m a big log clonking along and my stomach is never settled. It’s always too full and I feel like I have a day’s worth of food in my small intestines! Boooooooooo!! It was otherwise a great run.
Got back home to do some work. Pack some. And eat a dinner made by Matt!!
I always seem to eat tempeh raw in slabs or cooked in cubes. I don’t think I’ve ever crumbled it!
Emily left this Soy Boy 5 Grain Tempeh at our house. I have no idea where she got it (go ask her) but I’ve never seen the brand before. It was GREAT! I think there may have been wheatberries involved!?
Matt sauteed some zucchini and red pepper and then crumbled in the tempeh with his hands. He said it stuck to the bottom so he quickly added half a jar of Ragu Garden Veggie and things got to simmerin’. The sauce was AMAZING!!!!! I’m not sure if it was the tempeh, the sauce, or the combo – or the Garlic Gold!! – but it tasted like cheesy lasagna filling. And there was no cheese!?
Tableside topping. Garlic Gold Parmesan. It was awesome on sketti!
This tasted sooooo good.
Served over whole wheat angel hair
His portion was gigantic!!
Cleared my plate
I have no idea how, but this slice of CinnaRaisinWalnut made it into my mouth while I was packing my lunch. (Actually this is a reenactment because the slice I ate was gone too fast to photograph!) It was doughy and so good.
More work to do 🙁
Then bedtime. Early to bed, early to rise.
