The eat-clean diet. I think I'm eating 80% clean. For some reason I can't get into my hard core all or nothing state. Maybe that is a good thing.. but I will keep ping ponging between being diehard let's lose weight and oh well, let's just let it work itself out. Yah.
This week I made a berry cobbler that I saw on Danica's Daily using TJ's Vanilla cake mix which you mix with 12 oz of sparking water. Interesting! It is a nice fruity dish! I've made the cake a bunch of times for my students and LOVE it. This was the first time I was checking out the ingredients - the first one is sugar. So.. I don't know if I 'll buy that again!
Tomato chickpea soup I made and had with Dave's Killer croutons...
This was inspired by Lidia's porcini chickpea soup. It had 1/2 can peeled tomatoes, olive oil, and a cup or so chickpeas or white beans, with rosemary, parsley and oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer on the stove then blend away to make it smooth! I didn't measure too much but it ended up really tasty!
Cottage cheese pancakes from the eat-clean cookbook. It had cottage cheese, egg whites, flour... I added some flaxseed. I'll have to post the recipe when I find it. They were moist and decent!
This week for master's swimming it is outside since the indoor pool is being cleaned. It is pretty cool, I like swimming outside. It reminds me of easy living summer swimming days (age 6-18). Running is going ok. If I can run outside, it is great. I ran outside with Nick on Tuesday, and inside the rest of the days so far. I'm excited for Abby is back from her adventures and we hope to do a mini long run this weekend.
