So I woke up this morning with aching legs. That race-pace run was really hard on me yesterday. I decided it was a good day to take a rest.
I rolled out of bed and did 20 minutes of YogaDownload and my aches were all gone by the time I landed in savasana. Love yoga!
I came down and since I’ve allowed my juicer to stay out on the counter for 48 hours (I am majorly anti-appliance on the counters!) I decided I should use it again.
Spinach, pear, kale, celery, carrots, lemon, and ginger. I was excited to hear in the Breville you can just put whole lemons and pieces of unpeeled ginger. That’s what’s so cool about juicing – there’s no prep work other than washing everything [and my gosh that is an expensive set of produce there! I can’t afford to juice more than once I week, methinks]
I LOVED the addition of lemon. When I say the juice was "sooo good" I think there’s definitely a placebo effect here. I mean, it didn’t taste nearly as good as a green monster made with banana and almond butter, but since I know how nutritious it was, I think it tastes better than it might if you told me that say….it was the remains of a compost pileI have also acquired the taste for the bitter stinky kale. I like it now! And local kale is SO CHEAP at my grocery store, so that’s one good thing towards the cost!
[Don’t tell Matt I used his favorite Dogfish glass for green juice!!]
I sipped the juice first and then dug into some kefir + cereal
Kashi sent me their new flavor of Heart 2 Heart to try. I used to eat H2H all the time! I really loved the cinnamon flavor a lot. It was so warm 🙂
On top of the ~1 cup kefir bowl was a dollop of BethT‘s plum jam and then maybe half a cup of H2H.
This breakfast was great, but I can’t say I didn’t think about oatmeal at least 3 times *sniff*
Not sure if I need to warm up with a cup of coffee yet. I’m going to hop into the shower, then walk to the grocery store for some ingredients for a recipe I am developing tonight, and then STUDY until my study date at EarthFare and then MNT exam at 3PM.
1 down, 3 to go!
