The Healthy Everythingtarian’s Agenda – 8/5/2009
First on the agenda, yesterday’s brekkie:
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup POM juice
1/3 cup Stonyfield BaNilla yog
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tbsp. shredded coconut
1 sliced naner
heap o’ raw AB
Amazing. Will someone please tell me who invented overnight oats so I can bow down at their feet?
Second topic of conversation, snacks. I’ve been munching on this stellar combo of raw almonds + dried apples all week. The preferred method is to wrap an almond with a dried apple then devour for maximum deliciousness.
Third on today’s agenda is a follow-up from two days ago. Apparently, we missed not one but THREE stops on our flight around the world.
Our first missed stop included a culinary tour of India – complete with a buffet of fragrant and famed Indian cuisine.
chunks o’ chicken tikka masala
Our 2nd missed destination included a pit stop to Dean + Deluca in NYC for some twin sour cherries (this amount multiplied by approximately 200).
However, I regret to inform you our last stop was supposed to be Africa. However, since you were not able to make the trip, I shall fill you in on all the details. Sorry for an inconvenience.
For starters, I had a lovely bowl of soup in West Africa. Unfortunately, I have no idea what was in it; however, twas’ tasty.
Second, my African travel companion enjoyed a spread of West African-spiced rice with goat in a pumpkin seed/spinach sauce. Twas’ also quite enjoyable
To bring a little bit of home to the West African trip, dinner started off with a delicious Wisconsin Spotted Cow brew. It was then followed up with portobello mushrooms in a spiced peanut sauce, alongside a huge, fluffy and amazing ball of white yam known as fufu.
Yes, that ain’t no mashed potato. It’s fufu.
***agenda edited to add: After the Indian food child of earlier in the day, approximately only 1/2 of this meal was consumed.
This morning’s brekkie was tweaked for maximum 14-mile run fueling: white bagel, AB + 1/2 sliced naner. Tis’ best not to run on an empty stomach unless you are the running form of Superman.
Other agenda items:
- I’ve been corrected by the lovely Angharad: a courgette is in fact a zucchini, not a cucumber.
- Happy belated birthday to the fabulous and fun Ellie – I hope you had the best birthday ever!
- Twin Cities Marathon countdown: 28 days!
- I shall see everyone at our next meeting, which shall commence tomorrow night at the home of Mama + Daddy Everythingtarian over Labor Day Weekend.
- Holly…go run 14 miles now and stop procrastinating!
How did that last item get in there? Hmmmmm….
What are your plans for Labor Day Weekend? I’m hanging out in town today and possibly going to the UW football game (shoutout to my football-lovin’ gal Brandi!) then heading to go visit the fam and RELAX!
