If only every day could be this pleasant – the weather, the to-do list, the foods. Might as well appreciate it while it’s here.
I pittered around this morning knowing that my long-term projects are not urgent. I’m sure I’ll regret that later – d’oh! I did do some blog work though, which I often put into the “wasted time” part of my brain, but it is really work for me since this blog is part of my career + income. So I’ll change my report: I did some work
I left for the gym around 11:30. I wanted to be outside, but my surgery-dissected foot can only handle so many miles per week before getting stiff (or at least I don’t want to push it) so I decided not to go running. My bike ride was awesome, and I discovered a new route that takes me through the neighborhoods longer and less bumpy sidewalks. I went inside (by a window!) for just 35 minutes on the elliptical to work up a sweat and then finished by walking a mile and a half on the track with Natural Health. I LOVE that magazine!!
I was just beginning to get hungry at 2pm. Don’t know if I’m still just not in a hungry way today or if that bran muffin was extra branny! Regardless, this was the best meal I’ve had all week! The most satisfying and flavorful.
I made this slaw from more of our leftover cabbage. (If you want to eat healthy for cheap, buy a green cabbage! We’ve still got at least 2-3 cups left).
The slaw turned out awesome!! Worthy of a recipe page: Mustard Pecan BBQ Slaw.
Second on my plate was a leftover Coconut Maple Tofu + Pruney Pumpkin Butter Sandwich. Equally delish!!!
Reading material. This book is gorgeous.
+ Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea from Sarah. I forgot how good that tea is!!
I picked out this pear to have as well but I was pretty full (and also feel like I’m not very hungry today!?) so I saved it to have in a bit if I want him. Strange that I chose to eat it out of hand and then it was easy to save it for later. Perhaps that’s a good lunch strategy to judge fullness.
I will get some stuff done now!! See y’all for dinner.
