Happy Wednesday! Who is excited for Thanksgiving??? I know I am! But first, let’s welcome Wednesday with our weekly party. Thanks Jenn for hosting, as usual!
I don’t have a full day of food documented, but here are some highlights!
A new protein bar post Crossfit. We did lots of heavy squats, and I needed SOMETHING. Given there are about 3 protein bars out there without nuts, I didn’t have a whole lot of options. This was good though!
For dinner on Monday night, we tried a new soup recipe, courtesy of Buzzfeed. This was tomato soup with sautéed spinach and fresh mozzarella. After adding cheese, you broil it until melted. Pre-broiling and post:
Served with some fresh wheat bread, this was a fantastic fall meal!
Tuesday morning I went to a spin class at a local studio I had never been to before, Revelry Fitness. It was awesome. I think the types of things we did were sort of similar to Soul Cycle, but without all the unsafeness that drives me crazy about Soul Cycle. It was much more technically sound, and a great workout! Plus, they email you your bike stats after class, which I thought was pretty cool! I’m going again this morning 🙂
ANYWAYS, afterwards i went to a coffeeshop with my mom and got a strong cappuccino. I was WAY over caffeinated, but it is what it is. Check out the height on that milk foam!
For lunch, I met up with the rest of my family, including this guy.
For lunch was a teriyaki chicken wrap.
For dinner Tuesday night, I threw together leftovers (of a meal I wasn’t present for) to make a big old salad, along with some cheese and crackers (Trader Joe’s Cranberry Chèvre is insane!).
Given I’ve had maybe 2 avocados in the past 10 weeks, I won’t complain about leftovers if they include massive amounts of guacamole. This salad had leftover taco meat of turkey and beans, salsa, cheddar, and of course guacamole.
The night also included some recipe testing for my blogiversary. Can’t wait!
What is your favorite form of avocado?
