A Run, A Play, & A Damn Good Dinner

by HEAB on December 20, 2008

I had fun posting my eats for the week, and so I though I’d do it again today.  Awoke this morning to a grey day and decided to brighten it with a little stationary bike action (5 minutes) followed by some strength training (biceps, triceps, abs), and then finished off my mini-workout with another 5 minutes on the bike.  I bounced downstairs ready for a little brekkie, and whipped up this combo…

img_0888I made an egg white omelet with 1 Laughing Cow Light cheese wedge and last night’s leftover steamed broccoli.  My cereal salad was a mix of 1/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins, 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Twigs, & Pom seeds drowned in 1/2 cup Silk Nog.   I couldn’t decide on which nut butter I wanted.  Therefore, I had small spoonfuls of both :)

Chris and I then did our weekly grocery shopping at Costco (Jenn, I found the cranberry goat cheese.  Can’t wait to serve it at a get-together I’m hosting later this week!).  I was supposed to meet a friend for Zumba class and lunch, but she had to cancel due to car troubles.  So, instead I took my dogs for a 2 mile run.   Well, it’s too much to run with both of them.  I took Einstein first and then came back for Radley.  They love a good run but have gotten to used to my husband’s speedy pace.  I’m too slow for them now, and they kicked my booty :)

For lunch, I was craving some broccoli…surprise.

Plate #1

Plate #1

Cucumber, orange bell pepper and steamed broccoli (yes, our house ALWAYS stinks) covered in pepper and served with  hummus.  I was still hungry, and so onto…

Plate #2

Plate #2

2 pieces of Ezekiel cinnamon raisin toast.  I smothered one with Naturally Nutty’s Butter Toffee PB and carob chips while the other got a Laughing Cow Light, TJ’s strawberry preserves and a sprinkle of chips.  So, tell me…who loves the ass piece of bread?  I would never eat the end-of-the-loaf pieces growing up.  Why I ask?  Why?  So good!  I was happy to eat one today, but it means my Ezekiel is all gone :(

I got hungry about an hour later and  munched on this…

I buy these in bulk at Costco.  Love all that crunch!

Chris and I then went to see a play.  Don’t we sound cultural?  Ha – it’s the first play we’ve ever seen together, and probably the last.  We saw The Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris.  I liked it…Chris not so much.  When we got home, I got down to business  in the kitchen.

Dinner: Snobby Joes on Spaghetti Squash with Cheese

Thanks to  Erin for this recipe.  So tasty.  Joe will definitely be making more appearances at our dinner table!

I always like a little sweetness after dinner…

My lovely bowl consisted of 1/2 cup cottage cheese (usually Greek yogurt, but I finished off my last batch already), 1 Vita Muffin Top, a dollop of whipped cream, and 1 heaping TBSP of homemade chocolate peppermint almond butter.  Heaven in a bowl people!

OK, off to read my book.  I’m a married woman with a crush on a 17 year old vampire.  Is this a problem?
