Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone is out having a blast, or enjoying some quiet time beforehand. I’m blogging in front of baseball, and wanted to share a day of eating from yesterday,  July 3rd!

Breakfast: maple blueberry bread and strawberries I picked up in Davis, plus a beautiful nectarine!


Since I didn’t run on Sunday, I wanted to fit in some miles yesterday. Since I had some time on my hands, I went to my favorite running trail.


I went at a bit of a speedier pace than my normal casual run, and my achilles felt actually amazing.


Post-run, I made a quick stop at home for Chloe and then took her for a walk.


I learned on this walk that Chloe does not appreciate being honked at by a goose. It was sort of hilarious though.

When I got home from our walk, I made a quick but delicious lunch. I tried a new salad combo that came out amazing! I used guacamole as my salad dressing, then spread a leftover turkey patty with creamy goat cheese, and topped everything with ketchup. Yum! Plus a couple of leftover roasted sweet potatoes.


After lunch, my family and I went to a movie, which I thought was a mixed bag. During the movie, I snacked on a bar.


That evening, I went to Crossfit and then raced home to shower before having dinner with some friends. My friend was ambitious and made mushroom risotto! I brought beer and heavy cream (the missing ingredient).

On the side we had bread, corn, and a beautiful salad with egg, avocado, corn, tomato, and goat cheese.

I enjoyed time with my friends, and with kitties and the pup.

And now I’m off to enjoy my day. Have a good one my friends!
