So long, Kashi Go Lean
Well, this is unfortunate, but I can't eat this stuff anymore. It was great for my protein but I couldn't figure out what was giving me terrible gas problems! It was this!
I went to the produce market again (Gentiles) and spent around the same amount ($25) - this place is great! I'm trying to only use what we have this week plus the new produce. Poor picture of the produce drawer. I bought - strawberries, grapes, nectarines, zucchini, kale (new one), broccoli, mushrooms, portabellos, potatoes, sweet potatoes, a jalapeno for Bill, and apples.
Last night I made my weekly spinach frittata but overcooked the spinach, I'm still going to try that tonight. I am planning on pairing some veggies with quinoa, bulgur and couscous, but these are like sides. I don't have any main meal ideas? Do you have any main meal ideas using beans, the veggies above, and grains listed?? I've never used kale before and tried it in a smoothie today - but how about for dinner? Pass along!
Today I had my oatmeal w. almond butter and oatbran, and sometimes in a rush I just eat it out of the pan - did that today.
On the way home from the Y, I realized I hadn't packed anything to eat so I ate a Luna Bar that was stashed in my car, and had a Dr. Praeger's veggie burger for lunch w/ a nectarine. Mid afternoon snack - smoothie w/ frozen berries, aria protein powder, kale and banana. I feel like smoothies are treats!
For swimming, my new thing is going to be to see how quickly I can do the masters workout that is on the board. Today I did 3100 and it took me 54 min. As I was swimming and totally just thinking, I was kind of getting inspired to try a triathlon - it was inspiring reading Mama Simmons great job yesterday and I think it would be cool to try one. So - if anyone has a good local one to try out for a start, let me know! Great job all of the SD marathoners yesterday! Run to Finish, Julianne, Aron, Danica... awesome!
This afternoon my sister called and was here for the day (from DC) and wanted to go running!! The three of us went running the loop - 3.3 miles around 33 minutes. Bonus workout! : ) I am starting to feel less thick around my middle and went on the scale, and I finally lost a pound! whew! I was stuck at 135.2 and today midday 134! Maybe I'm heading down! 128 here I come!! 3 pounds from pre-prego weight now, let's keep it up body!!! Good eating!!
Dinner - Boca chicken patty, spinach frittata, lentils, quinoa, sweet potatoes and ketchup. Check out that rainbow!!!
