Ended professional day with a talk on Epigenetics and called it a day. I did stop by the Juice Plus booth and tried some gummies made from vegetables and fruits. They tasted great, but not as great as kale and brussels and broccoli do chompin’ in my mouth!
I got weirdly hungry around 3 during the talk but then when I headed home it went away. Typical hunger. But I did get to finally try that Tropical Fruit Larabar!!!
I was very skeptical that I’d like it because I don’t really like fruity flavored things that much, but WOW. It was awesome!! I was expecting it to be tart like lemon, but it was very orangey and the pineapple was great. If the other fruit Larabars are brownies (from dates) this guy was a blondie!
I went home, changed and raced over to Emily’s for a workout!!
We went for a 4 mile run before we buckled down to do some mega weight lifting. We did this set through twice. 15 reps the first time though and “as many as we could do” the second.
I got my stressful “I gotta finish this before dinner” blog work on while Casey and Emily cooked dinner!!!
So nice of them 🙂
I brought over a spiralizer I got from Open Sky! Would you guys want that in my store?
It was super cool!
We spiraled sweet potatoes and baked them like curly fries!!
Casey whipped up some Chinese spiced brussels
And Emily cooked quinoa, apples and almonds in her rice cooker. I’d kinda like one of those…
Dinner was SO GOOD!
The potatoes were still sort of soft, but they were so fun to eat!
We added some organic ketchup with the potatoes. It was just OK. Tasted too much like tomato sauce!
I am not a huge fan of quinoa. It’s kind of airy and the flavor has never bowled me over. But this was awesome! Maybe I need to alter my cooking method..
The brussels were spicy and perfectly cooked!!
Even the brown dog enjoyed our dinner!
Like my Nutrition Facts glass!?
Remember the Quaker “Create Your Day” challenge? Good Bite and Quaker raised $25,000 for Share Our Strength in just 3 weeks. Quaker was so impressed they decided to do a round 2 – 25,000 more creations = 25,000 more dollars! Let’s give it another go!
So I got the word that the internet is down at our house. This could be a big blogging problem in the AM! I’ll do an iPhone post if that’s the case, but if I’m missing, that’s what’s going on.
