Â Just a sneak peak at what you’ll be experiencing in say, oh…. 5 minutes? (I don’t know your reading levels people.)
The 10 mile run yesterday was great! I ran it in about 1:30 flat, which is approximately a 9:00 min. mile pace. I’d say that’s relatively good for me! I’m getting excited for running the half, but a little disappointed I couldn’t corral anyone into running it with me. Any takers?
After I ran, I fueled up with a second breakfast… a banana scramble! I’m still trying to get the consistency right with these. I think I have to ask Ashley if they’re supposed to be mushy or if they’re supposed to set. We shall see.
However it’s supposed to turn out, this was delicious. I topped the millet bread with organic strawberry jam from a local’ish farm.
I cleaned my little heart out yesterday after my run. Needless to say, I was quite famished again around 1:00 pm. I decided on a brown rice and veggie bowl topped with hummus. This never gets old and totally hits the spot every time.
approximately 3 pound of baby red potatoes (10-12), quartered
1/2 pound fresh green beans (stems snapped off)
1/4 red onion, chopped
1-2 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper, garlic, and basil to taste
How it’s done:
1. Begin by washing your potatoes and green beans. I got mine from the farmer’s market, so they were still dirty.
4. While your other veggies are cooking, chop 1/4 of a red/purple onion and put on the bottom of a large serving bowl.
6. Once your potatoes have cooked through, strain those and dump them all into the bowl with the green beans and onions. (SIDENOTE: You do not want your potatoes to be mushy – you’ll still want them to hold together in the bowl. Do not cook them as long as you would for mashed potatoes)
7. Add your salt, pepper, garlic, and fresh basil to taste. Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
The simplicity in the ingredients honestly made the dish. Sometimes I feel people like to make “complicated” recipes.. but the fresh produce in this recipe is really the star of the show. Enjoy it. When we got to my sister’s house, I told her I made potato salad, she took the foil off the bowl and said, “oh my!” and proceeded to pick from the bowl. If I can get my niece and nephew’s approval, I’d say I’m doing pretty good as well.
We had a great time over there. I managed to polish off 2 portabello mushrooms the size of my head along with 2 servings of the potato salad. After dinner we watched our wedding video that we finally got! It was amazing. It was so cool to re-live that day over. I especially liked in the beginning when he showed pictures of us getting ready to music. LOVE IT! I can’t wait for our pictures to be done. I’m glad I snacked (unpictured) throughout the afternoon, but when we got home I was starving! I had a quick snack before bed – I’m surprised the husband doesn’t ever try to leave me when I’m hungry + tired. It’s a lethal combination!
I just enjoyed this lovely bowl of overnight oats…
and now I’m off to make the husband his Sunday morning breakfast, followed by church and Sunday afternoon “dinner”! I’m making a good one, I’ll post the recipe later!
